ab: From the preface: “This book \dots presents the key elements of an
intensive program to close the gaps in math successfully in the
shortest possible time” either an intensive summer program or one
semester in the freshman year of college. The book should be useful to
at least four teaching audiences: 1. college professors teaching
remedial math courses 2. high school teachers teaching intensive
“catch-up” math courses, such as Algebra II, in a summer session 3.
other math professionals teaching preparatory courses for college
placement, such as for the scholastic aptitude test 4. math-trained
professionals who are engaged in home-schooling efforts. A fifth
audience is, of course, students who will be involved in these
programs.
