Arithmetic and Algebra-- AgainBook - 1994
This work is intended for students in developmental maths, continuing education colleges and adult education programmes. The text avoids simplistic, grade school-oriented problems; instead, it builds on the life experience with maths that maths-anxious people have already acquired, including real-life problems such as bank calculations. The authors teach traditional maths in a non-traditional way - using some non-threatening problems from 19th-century maths books. Each chapter contains examples, test exercises, a summary, review exercises and a readiness check for topic mastery.
