Overview

Prealgebra: An Integrated Equations Approach, 3e, by Hutchison/Bergman/Baratto extends the successful Streeter series in developmental mathematics. This worktext utilizes an integrated equations approach that pairs arithmetic concepts alongside corresponding algebraic concepts. Beginning in chapter 1, students are gradually exposed to key algebraic concepts such as variables and equations. In this way, students gradually build their confidence dealing with basic algebra concepts and are better prepared for an introductory algebra course. Integers, fractions, and decimals are used frequently after their initial introduction, developing students’ comfort with them. Students also develop valuable critical thinking skills through numerous, varied examples and exercises that focus on real-world applications and problem solving. The worktext is accompanied by numerous useful supplements, including McGraw-Hill’s online homework management system, MathZone.
