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.

Meet the Author

Don began teaching in a preschool while he was an undergraduate. He subsequently

taught children with disabilities, adults with disabilities, high school mathematics, and

college mathematics. Although each position offered different challenges, it was always

breaking a challenging lesson into teachable components that he most enjoyed.

It was at Clackamas Community College that he found his professional niche. The community

college allowed him to focus on teaching within a department that constantly

challenged faculty and students to expect more. Under the guidance of Jim Streeter,

Don learned to present his approach to teaching in the form of a textbook. Don has also

been an active member of many professional organizations. He has been president of

ORMATYC, AMATYC committee chair, and ACM curriculum committee member. He

has presented at AMATYC, ORMATYC, AACC, MAA, ICTCM, and a variety of other


Above all, he encourages you to be involved, whether as a teacher or as a learner.

Whether discussing curricula at a professional meeting or homework in a cafeteria, it is

the process of communicating an idea that helps one to clarify it.

Barry has enjoyed teaching mathematics to a wide variety of students over the years. He

began in the fi eld of adult basic education and moved into the teaching of high school

mathematics in 1977. He taught high school math for 11 years, at which point he served

as a K-12 mathematics specialist for his county. This work allowed him the opportunity to

help promote the emerging NCTM standards in his region.

In 1990, Barry began the next portion of his career, having been hired to teach at Clackamas

Community College. He maintains a strong interest in the appropriate use of technology

and visual models in the learning of mathematics.

Throughout the past 32 years, Barry has played an active role in professional organizations.

As a member of OCTM, he contributed several articles and activities to the group’s journal.

He has presented at AMATYC, OCTM, NCTM, ORMATYC, and ICTCM conferences. Barry

also served 4 years as an offi cer of ORMATYC and participated on an AMATYC committee

to provide feedback to revisions of NCTM’s standards.

Stefan began teaching math and science in New York City middle schools. He also taught

math at the University of Oregon, Southeast Missouri State University, and York County

Technical College. Currently, Stefan is a member of the mathematics faculty at Clackamas

Community College where he has found a niche, delighting in the CCC faculty, staff, and

students. Stefan’s own education includes the University of Michigan (BGS, 1988), Brooklyn

College (CUNY), and the University of Oregon (MS, 1996).

Stefan is currently serving on the AMATYC Executive Board as the organization’s Northwest

Vice President. He has also been involved with ORMATYC, NEMATYC, NCTM, and the

State of Oregon Math Chairs group, as well as other local organizations. He has applied his

knowledge of math to various fi elds, using statistics, technology, and web design. More personally,

Stefan and his wife, Peggy, try to spend time enjoying the wonders of Oregon and

the Pacifi c Northwest. Their activities include scuba diving, self-defense training, and hiking.
