Reasonable Basic Algebra
by Alain Schremmer
Number of pages: 272
Reasonable Basic Algebra (RBA) is a course of study developed to allow a significantly higher percentage of students to complete Differential Calculus in three semesters. As it is intended for a one-semester course, though, RBA may serve in a similar manner students with different goals. The general intention is to get the students to change from being “answer oriented”, the inevitable result of “show and tell, drill and test”, to being “question oriented4” and thus, rather than try to “remember” things, be able to “reconstruct” them as needed.

A brief overview of pre-algebra and introductory algebra topics. This text is suitable for high-school Algebra I, as a refresher for college students preparing for college-level mathematics, or for anyone who wants to learn introductory algebra.

Large number of requests coming from teachers for supplementary work in algebra has led me to collect such material into a monograph, hoping to furnish the teacher with methods and supplementary work by which he may brighten up the algebra review.
This book focuses on primary school mathematics for students, whether children or adults. It is assumed that no calculators are used, to encourage mental arithmetic. This course uses as much lay language as possible to also be helpful to parents.

The text is organized to provide the pupil with the maximum opportunity to do genuine thinking, real problem-solving, rather than to emphasize the drill or manipulative aspects which now commonly require most of the pupil's time.
