This book provides student activities grouped in algebra, geometry, and algebra 2 sections that parallel the traditional sequencing in major texts. Through activity design, students are lead through an inductive inquiry in which they conjecture, formulate, and test ideas anc concepts. This inductive student-centered approach to learning will not only excite students but also increase student effort.
