In the "Getting Ready to Learn" portion of the textbook lesson, "Check your readiness" exercises help students see where they might need to review before the lesson. "Check skills you'll need" list out the skills used in the lesson, and new vocabulary is listed before it's introduced. Sidebar helps tell students where to go for help in the textbook if they need to review, or note when an online tutor video is available.
The lesson itself includes "quick check" problems for students to see if they understand the concept just introduced; "key concepts" boxes that summarize definitions, formulas, & properties, online activities for review and practice; vocabulary sidebars and features that help focus on the language of math; and multiple types of practice activities that feature new material, integrate older material, and provide challenges. A homework video tutor for every lesson is provided online. Designed to especially help students prepare for high-stakes tests like the SAT and ACT, as well as standardized tests, test-taking strategies are included in each chapter. Skills handbook, Spanish/English glossary, instant check answers, and selected answers are included in the student textbook.
