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.

This text covers the work prescribed for entrance to the Universities and Normal Schools. The book is written from the standpoint of the pupil, and in such a form that he will be able to understand it with a minimum of assistance from the teacher.

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.

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.
