# Pre-Algebra: A Teaching Textbook

## by Greg SabouriAuthor, Shawn SabouriAuthor

The TT Pre-Algebra program includes a complete review of basic math (whole numbers, fractions, decimals, percents, units of measurement, etc.), but it explains things more conceptually than books for younger students. This approach teaches students why the techniques they've been using for years really work. Knowing the whys is necessary prep-aration for Algebra 1 and other higher math courses. TT Pre-Algebra also contains about 55 lessons of beginning algebra that gradually introduces some of the early algebraic concepts in an unintimidating way. Includes a textbook and computer CD's. The student watches the lesson on the CD, does the problems, then watches a tutor explain the ones the student missed.
