8th Grade Math: PreAlgebra is designed for the middle school learner and provides a smooth transition from 6th and 7th Grade Math.
Students of all levels benefit from the structured leveled set of exercises in the homework sections. First, students practice by example. Next, they apply the skills they have learned, and finally, students are challenged with problems that require them to apply concepts on an accelerated level. The Go For Help icon refers students back to examples for help on similar problems previously introduced in the chapter. Topics covered include algebraic expressions and integers, solving onestep equations and inequalities, area and volume, and linear functions.

High School Math
Algebra 1
For many students who struggle, math shows up as a collection of rules, formulas, and properties that they learn temporarily, forget quickly, and never use again. Students find mathematics meaningless if they don't see the connections. Prentice Hall Algebra 1 teaches for understanding by incorporating an interwoven strand of thinking and reasoning into problem solving. This connects the math that students learn, from the first lesson to the last. By focusing on thinking, reasoning, and problem solving, students will become more prepared for success in school, in their careers, and in life.
