Prealgebra

by D. Franklin Wright

Throughout the text, Prealgebra develops and explains one of the most important topics in mathematics, solving equations. Examples are featured in increasingly difficult levels to ease students into learning while still providing challenging material. Elements of geometry are integrated throughout several sections. Topics also extend to working with polynomials, factoring, graphing in two dimensions, and constructing circle and bar graphs.
