Advanced algebra by
Sharon L Senk(
Book
)
25 editions published between 1990 and 2010 in English and held by 296 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The text Advanced Algebra has been developed by the Secondary Component of the University of Chicago Mathematics Project (UCSMP) and constitutes the core of the fifth year in a sevenyear middle and high school mathematics curriculum. Four dimensions of understanding are emphasized: skill in drawing, visualizing, and following algorithms; understanding of properties, mathematical relationships, and proofs; using algebraic ideas in realistic situations; and representing algebraic concepts with graphs or other diagrams. We call this the SPUR approach: Skills, Properties, Uses, Representations.  p. iv, v
