The content of California Pre-Algebra offers complete coverage of California’s Grade 7 Mathematics Content Standards. Mathematics standards from previous grades are reviewed to help understand Grade 7 standards. Activities are provided to develop Grade 7 concepts. Each lesson has ample skill practice so that students can master the important mathematical processes taught in Grade 7. California Pre-Algebra also teaches valuable techniques for solving purely mathematical as well as real-world problems. Throughout each chapter students will engage in error analysis and mathematical reasoning to build critical thinking skills and to construct logical arguments. California Pre-Algebra thus provides a balance between basic skills, conceptual understanding, and problem solving – all supported by mathematical reasoning. California Pre-Algebra will also help students become better at taking notes and taking tests. Look for a notetaking strategy at the beginning of each chapter as well as helpful marginal notes throughout each chapter. The marginal notes give students support in keeping a notebook, studying math, reading algebra and geometry, doing homework, using technology, and reviewing for tests.

NB: Glossary, English-to-Spanish Glossary, and Index are NOT included the pdf version of the textbook.
