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. Math Remediation for the College Bound fosters mastery of critical math and algebraic concepts and skills essential to all of the STEM disciplines and some of the social sciences. This booklet is designed to accompany the main book, Math Remediation for the College-Bound: How Teachers Can Close the Gap, from the Basics through Algebra. With the exception of Chapters 1 and 2, each chapter of the booklet consists of five sections: (1) practice homework, (2) a sample test, (3) the answers to selected and numbered exercises corresponding to their numbering in the book, (4) answers to the practice homework, and (5) answers to sample tests. This pattern begins with Chapter 3 and continues for the remainder of the book.
