Mail*Link(r) SMTP RE: algebra/yellow books
The "yellow booklets" I used in the past, about 17 years ago actually, were
from Allyn and Bacon (copyright, 1977) and dealt with Fractions. The Whole
Numbers were covered in salmon colored booklets. Both were from a series -
which probably also covered Algebra, though I no longer have any of those
booklets - "Basic Skills in Mathematics" developed by the Minneapolis Public
Schools under a Title I grant. I don't know if they are still available.
I have successfully used "Keys to Algebra" from the Key Curriculum Press in
the Berkeley CA area (510-548-2304). Seven booklets (answer keys and notes
are separate) cover Operations on Integers, Equations, Polynomials, through
Multiplying and Dividing, and Adding and Subtracting Rational Expressions.
Their other series include Fractions, Decimals, Percents, and Geometry. All
provide lots of practice and lots of visuals. Hope this helps.
