Algebra is the language that must be mastered for any course that uses math because it is the gateway for entry into any science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) discipline. This book fosters mastery of critical math and algebraic concepts and skills essential to all of the STEM disciplines and some of the social sciences.

Hey, Doc! Does Speling Count? is a humorous satire about the many failings of state universities in America. This book is for people who, like Professor Ward, enjoy laughing-those willing to poke fun at human behavior and traditional institutions. In particular, it is for those whose lives intersect American education. They wonder what's going on and why. "Hey, Doc!---" is for teachers, professors, education administrators, college graduates, business leaders, legislators, working professionals, serious college students, and self-sacrificing parents, whose monthly checks wind up paying for three-day weekend college football bashes. And, it is for Professor Ward's barber who wonders why his college-educated patrons have nothing more important on their minds than last weekend's football scores. As a university professor of thirty-one years, Dr. Ward has observed just about everything happening on campus-some of it is truly shocking. An idealistic reformer, he wanted to write a factual expose about university mismanagement. But, fearing massive retaliation "tell-all" authors attract, he shied away. Instead, he resorted to crafting his 5000 protest letters about university mismanagement with humor, satire, irony, and sarcasm. These letters became the genesis of this book. "Hey, Doc!---" provides a fresh look at the college scene, ridiculing students, professors, administrators, and union leaders, while lampooning much of what happens on the "State U." campus. When you are not laughing out loud with Professor Ward's special brand of humor, you will be shocked and dismayed to read his revelations of widespread university mismanagement. About the Author: A world expert in the biochemistry of GREEN FLUORESCENT PROTEIN, Dr. Ward has 120 professional publications to his credit and has taught hundreds of sections of college courses, freshman level to graduate level. His continuing professional education courses in biotechnology have attracted more than 1200 industrial scientists from all around the world. He has presented 50 platform talks at national and international meetings, addressing up to 500 attendees and he has run three international symposia on GFP. Dr. Ward has given keynote addresses to audiences in Cambridge, England, Pembrokshire, Wales, Asilomar, CA, Blacksburg, VA, and Greensboro NC. He has been filmed by ABC for a NYC news broadcast and has been interviewed on radio. Over the past 20 years, Dr. Ward has appeared as a tenor in a dozen community theater productions including four Gilbert and Sullivan operettas. Partnering with his multi-talented illustrator, Lori Baratta, he is working on four other satires, "Turn Right To Go Left," about New Jersey driving, "Snake Oil, Revisited," exposing over-the-counter quackery, "Why Do They Jog When They've Nothing That Jiggles," about the silly things people do, and "GW Bush, America's 44th Best President," a scathing expose of #43.

Paying for a college education, even at public four-year colleges & universities, now ranks as one of the most costly investments for American families. This report discusses the increase in college tuition & related fees at four-year public colleges & universities from school year 1980-95, & schools' expenditures over the same period. Also discusses variations in tuition charges among states in school year 1995-96 & initiatives that some states & colleges have undertaken to hold down tuition increases, make paying for college easier.

This study examines the links between Nevada's grade 12 mathematics courses and remedial mathematics courses in Nevada's public colleges and universities. It analyzes remediation rates by students' highest grade 12 mathematics course level and mathematics grade point average and by various student and school characteristics. The study was guided by four primary questions: (1) Which mathematics courses did Nevada students complete in grade 12, and how well did they do? (2) What were the remediation rates for each level of mathematics courses that students completed in grade 12, and how did the rates differ by student performance in those courses? (3) How did the remediation rates differ by other student characteristics? and (4) How did the remediation rates differ by type of high school attended in grade 12, as measured by locale and by whether the school made adequate yearly progress that year under the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001? The study calculated the college mathematics remediation rate of recent high school graduates in Nevada and disaggregated it by the highest level of mathematics courses completed during the students' senior year in high school and by combined factors, including the highest level of mathematics courses taken and the students' grade 12 mathematics grade point average (GPA). The analysis is based on the population of 4,653 students who graduated from a Nevada public high school in 2006 and enrolled in at least one mathematics course in a Nevada public college or university in the 2006-07 school year. Students were sorted into eight categories based on the highest level of mathematics courses completed in grade 12. Results indicate that whether students enroll in remedial mathematics as freshmen in college is related to the mathematics courses students completed in grade 12 and their performance in these courses. For the Nevada System of Higher Education, the analysis quantifies the proportion of Nevada students who enroll in the state's public colleges and universities directly from high school and who enroll in mathematics remediation, and provides information about the academic background of those students. The report may also help parents, students, and educators better understand the likelihood that students completing particular mathematics courses in grade 12 will enroll in mathematics remediation before taking college-level mathematics courses. The study is intended as a starting point for discussions between K-12 and college administrators about what would be sufficient high school mathematics preparation for college-bound students. Two appendixes are included: (1) Data sources, methods, and population; and (1) Logistic regressions. (Contains 4 figures and 15 tables.)

Why do politicians always claim our teachers and our educational system is failing our students? Of course they claim an American student is lagging behind the rest of the worlds students, but is this really the truth or do politicians have other societal and political reasons that need to be looked at? The lack of support our federal and state politicians give to our teachers and our American educational system is embarrassing. For the last 25 years politicians have used selective statistics and fear tactics to manipulate the public into believing our teachers and our American educational system has denied our students a solid education. American Teachers and the American School System Did Not Fail Our Students, is the first book to address the idea that our teachers and our American educational system were used as a political scapegoat to advance political careers and to promote a standardized form of society. The book will be composed of an introduction with eight chapters. The introduction will describe the reasons for writing a book to support teachers and American educational system. The eight chapters that follow will describe different aspects of the educational environment and how they have been influenced by the standardized movement.
