#### Additional product details

Authors Paula McKenna and Honey Kirk hail from the state of Texas, where they teach students of all ages, skill sets, and backgrounds. As active teachers in diverse classrooms, their aim is to provide developmental students with a solid mathematical foundation, while also giving them the means to expand on that foundation after they leave the classroom.

As authors, they teach algebra as a story, emphasizing applications, problem solving, and language to help students understand how topics relate to one another and to the world around them. They begin this book with a thorough review of prealgebra to ensure that students begin building their algebra skills on a solid base, and each chapter opens with an application that serves as a running theme for the content throughout the chapter. The authors make problem solving easy for students through the “4 P’s” problem-solving process (Prepare, Plan, Process, and Ponder), which encourages critical thinking and thoughtful discussion. CourseSmart textbooks do not include any media or print supplements that come packaged with the bound book.
