## Applying Algebraic Thinking to Data: Concepts and Processes for the Intermediate Algebra StudentThe Series' Approach Incorporating the AMATYC standards, the DeMarois/McGowen/Whitkanack series takes an active-learning approach to Introductory Algebra and Intermediate Algebra, focusing on collaborative work both in and out of class. The problem-solving skills presented in these texts encourage independent learning and emphasize connections among mathematical ideas to help students better understand and build on newly encountered concepts. Through discovery-based techniques, students are encouraged to explore mathematical ideas on the calculator and/or computer before the ideas are discussed in class. This innovative approach helps students make mathematical discoveries, supports small-group work, and reduces the instructor's role as a lecturer. |
