Beginning Algebra with Arithmetic Review is an activity-based text designed to help students gain a strong conceptual foundation by building connections among topics of mathematics in a meaningful, real-world context. Guided by the instructor and prompted by the text activities, students explore, make conjectures, interpret, discuss, and ultimately find meaning and understanding in basic mathematical principles. Based on the 18 modules of the award-winning Maricopa Mathematics Modules, this text embodies a thorough implementation of the AMATYC Crossroads Standards and provides a seamless transition from Basic Mathematics through Introductory Algebra.
