# Teaching community college algebra?

You've probably had quite a few students who don't want to be in your first-year algebra class. It's not because of you or the time when the class meets.

Instead, it's the subject. They're afraid of math.

## And here's the reality:

Many of your college's degree programs have algebra prerequisites. If your students don't complete your class, they won't get into those programs. If they're going on to four-year institutions, they'll also need algebra.

So, how can you help these students? You can adopt the new book, * Banishing Math Anxiety*, as a textbook or review book.

Designed for students that may have given up on math, * Banishing Math Anxiety* provides a fresh start. It re-introduces concepts and skills that will help your students understand and succeed with first-year algebra. For many of them, this may be the first mathematical success they've ever had.

* Banishing Math Anxiety* is available in print and eBook formats that students can purchase direct from Kendall Hunt.

## Here's how **Banishing Math Anxiety** will help your students:

**Banishing Math Anxiety**

**It's usable as a textbook or review book** students can work through on their own.

**It encourages active learning** by asking questions.

**It reinforces the idea that math learning may begin in the classroom, but it doesn't end there.** * Banishing Math Anxiety* presents real-world applications like pre-employment testing, math on the job, debt management, taxes, and more.

**It introduces an appreciation of graphing calculators** without presuming that your students have ever seen one.

**It encourages creative exploration** instead of some step-by-step approach that's supposed to work every time.
