Aimed at students in a developmental mathematics program, this textbook covers basics such as whole numbers, fractions, decimals, ratio and proportion, percent, and measurement. It also provides an introduction to basic algebra and geometry and touches on statistics. The volume begins with a diagnostic pretest to assess students' skills. In addition to review questions at the end of each chapter, problems are found in the margins throughout the text, enabling the student to immediately practice new material. Annotation c.
