Offering a uniquely modern, balanced approach, Tussy/Koenig's PREALGEBRA, 6th Edition, integrates the best of traditional and conceptual approaches with a new Look Alikes enhancement. Look Alikes help students compare and contrast problem types to understand the correct intent of questions and determine the necessary steps for solution. For many students, algebra is like a foreign language. Some students need instructional support translating Mathematical words, meanings, and how they apply to problem solving. Emphasizing the "language of algebra," the text's fully integrated learning process expands student reasoning abilities and teaches them how to read, write, and think mathematically. It blends instructional approaches that include vocabulary, practice, and well-defined pedagogy with an emphasis on reasoning, modeling, communication, and technology skills.

"1. Design makes it easy for students to learn2. Examples and homework problems are of an appropriate level, and help the student to effectively practice the concepts. 3. Each section is a manageable amount of material for one or two class days."
"I like how the examples are referenced in the Guided Practice problems. The self-checks and teacher examples are helpful. The chapter reviews are set-up nicely. The addition of the medical applications to the conversion sections is a great addition."
"It's mostly easy to read and well written. I can refer my students to the text and the worked examples to help them with specific problem types. The problem sets are good, I can find plenty of practice for the types of problems I want my students to be able to do on the test."
