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. Math Remediation for the College Bound fosters mastery of critical math and algebraic concepts and skills essential to all of the STEM disciplines and some of the social sciences. This booklet is designed to accompany the main book, Math Remediation for the College-Bound: How Teachers Can Close the Gap, from the Basics through Algebra. With the exception of Chapters 1 and 2, each chapter of the booklet consists of five sections: (1) practice homework, (2) a sample test, (3) the answers to selected and numbered exercises corresponding to their numbering in the book, (4) answers to the practice homework, and (5) answers to sample tests. This pattern begins with Chapter 3 and continues for the remainder of the book.
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

The 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
