about

Algebra is the language that must be mastered for any course that uses math because it is the gateway for entry into any science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) discipline. This book fosters mastery of critical math and algebraic concepts and skills essential to all of the STEM disciplines and some of the social sciences. This book is written by practitioners whose primary teaching subject is not math but who use math extensively in their courses in STEM disciplines, social science statistics, and their own research. Moreover, in the writing of this book, the authors have used the teaching principles of anchoring, overlearning, pruning the course to its essentials, and using simple and familiar language in word problems.
Daryo Khatri is president/CEO of TopTech, Inc. and professor of physics at the University of District of Columbia. Anne O. Hughes is a retired professor of sociology and anthropology at the University of District of Columbia.

Editorial Reviews

This book should be useful to at least four teaching audiences: 1. college professors teaching remedial math courses 2. high school teachers teaching intensive "catch-up" math courses, such as Algebra II, in a summer session 3. other math professionals teaching preparatory courses for college placement, such as for the scholastic aptitude test 4. math-trained professionals who are engaged in home-schooling efforts. A fifth audience is, of course, students who will be involved in these programs.
