MATH RESOURCES
Our recent math adoption includes a wealth of accompanying resources to aid student success. The following consists of links to the general resource pages for each text and links to further resources by topics or chapters. Most of these resources include videos for reviewing lessons. Another great resource for video lessons is khanacademy.org Searching for a specific topic on Youtube.com can also yield useful results.
Understanding how to manipulate fractions is imperative to success in Algebra so sources for fraction review are also listed below.General PreCalculus Resources
