Hi! We are excited to introduce Foundations of Algebra to you!
Foundations of Algebra is a manuscript being used right now in the Prealgebra classes at Santa Ana and Santiago Canyon Colleges. It provides students with a bridge between arithmetic and beginning algebra. Student understanding of algebraic concepts is supported through the use of manipulative activities called Manipulative Mathematics. Students’ literacy in written English and fluency with mathematical vocabulary are addressed through Links to Literacy activities. And every lesson in Foundations of Algebra includes a pro-active study skills activity, which we call Take Charge of Your Success.
Click on the Manipulative Mathematics or Links to Literacy links on the menu bar above to learn more about these unique features of Foundations of Algebra. The Strategies for Success link will give you information about our study skills workbook published by Pearson Higher Education.
