This textbook is designed around the philosophy that students do bett er in math and science if they have a real percepti on of the fundamental concepts of mathemati cs. The content within this textbook fi rst places an emphasis on developing a strategy for solving math problems which will mentally lead the problem solver towards a soluti on. Secondly, this text encourages the problem solver to visualize images such as charts, graphs, sketches or models to support that strategy. These steps encourage a student to think their way through each problem so they will understand the concepts rather than to make an att empt to memorize a way to get an answer. Successful math students understand the concepts while other students att empt to memorize and duplicate. This text encourages students to develop an understanding approach to problem solving as they solve more than 1100 progressively challenging problems. “Best Strategies for Pre-Algebra with Basic Algebra” is writt en in a concise and sequenti al manner that will promote student interest and effi ciency. This text demonstrates the necessary fundamentals taught in Pre-Algebra and it also includes two additi onal chapters of Algebra, which emphasizes the use of variables, as well as, graphing, writi ng, and solving linear equati ons.

Mr. Zimmer grew up in the small town of Adams Mills which is in the Muskingum Valley near Coshocton, Ohio. The beauti ful agricultural valley is embedded in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains in southeastern Ohio. When Mr. Zimmer att ended elementary school, Adams Mills had one church, one elementary school, 38 houses, and about 100 people. Mr. Zimmer had the same teacher each year in elementary school and at the beginning of each school year he moved over another row. The reason for the move is that each row represented another grade-level in a one room school. When asked how he ranked in elementary school, he stated “he never ranked lower than third in his grade”. The reason being there were only three in his grade. Mr. Zimmer told me that he considered it a privilege to att end a small school because each student was recognized as somebody and personally each student was held accountable. Therefore all students parti cipated and all students were team players as they acquired skills in reading, writi ng, math, science, or physical exercise games.
