Before students can begin their studies of calculus, the physical sciences, accounting or any other subject which requires advanced mathematics; they first must know basic arithmetic. This workbook was prepared by the department of Mathematics at Scottsdale Community College to help students prepare for university-level mathematics courses.

The development team for the first edition, published in 2016, was Amy Volpe, Jenifer Bohart, Judy Sutor, Donna Slaughter and Martha Gould. This textbook includes 14 units; each of which has the main instructional content, media examples and problems. The authors mention an Appendix A with the answers but I was not able to find it. It might be only available for instructors.
