**GOOD:** The book shows obvious wear on the outside with bent pages and some creases, but the pages are free of writing and are ready for your student to use!

This book includes a video CD that has never been used as it is still in an unopened pocket at the back of the book.

## Description

### The Textbook

This student workbook has many features that enable the student to study prealgebra independently.

From the author in the Preface:

“*Prealgebra, Fourth Edition* was written to help students make the transition from arithmetic to algebra. To reach this goal, I introduce algebraic concepts early and repeat them as I treat traditional arithmetic topics, thus laying the groundwork for the next algebra course your students will take. A second goal was to show students the relevancy of the mathematics in everyday life and in the workplace.”
