Math Remediation for the College Bound: How Teachers Can Close the Gap, from the Basics through Algebra

Paperback
Algebra is the language that must be mastered for any course that uses math because it is the gateway for entry into any science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) discipline. This book fosters mastery of critical math and algebraic concepts and skills essential to all of the STEM disciplines and some of the social sciences. This book is written by practitioners whose primary teaching subject is not math but who use math extensively in their courses in STEM disciplines, social science statistics, and their own research. Moreover, in the writing of this book, the authors have used the teaching principles of anchoring, overlearning, pruning the course to its essentials, and using simple and familiar language in word problems.
