The first book of the Mathematics in Action series, Prealgebra Problem Solving, Third Edition, illustrates how mathematics arises naturally from everyday situations through updated and revised real-life activities and accompanying practice exercises.

This unique approach helps students increase their knowledge of mathematics, sharpen their problem-solving skills, and raise their overall confidence in their ability to learn. Technology integrated throughout the text helps students interpret real-life data algebraically, numerically, symbolically, and graphically. The active style of this book develops students’ mathematical literacy and builds a solid foundation for future study in mathematics and other disciplines.
