Arithmetic And Algebra
Arithmetic and Algebra
This book uses a practical approach to arithmetic and beginning algebra and assumes no prior knowledge of mathematics. By thoroughly explaining various mathematical techniques, Proga helps students understand why a technique works so they'll remember how to use it. Well-known for its flexibility and complete coverage of arithmetic and algebra topics, Proga's text is perfectly suited for a combination arithmetic-elementary algebra course, for either an arithmetic or an algebra course, or for a two-term course sequence.
