The focus in PREALGEBRA & INTRODUCTORY ALGEBRA is on you, the student. You are encouraged to be active participants both in the classroom and in your own studies as you work through the How To examples and the paired Examples and You Try It problems. The role of "active participant" is crucial to your success. PREALGEBRA & INTRODUCTORY ALGEBRA presents worked examples, and then provides you with the opportunity to immediately work similar problems, helping to build your confidence and eventually master the concepts. This simple framework, known as the Aufmann Interactive Method (AIM) is the foundation for your success. All lessons, exercise sets, tests, and supplements are organized around a carefully-constructed hierarchy of objectives. This "objective-based" approach helps you clearly organize your thoughts around the content making the pages easier for you to follow.
