Readership Teachers, researchers, students, and all others interested in examining a Japanese approach to mathematical education. Reviews "Covers a wealth of material ... clearly, matteroffactly written ... A lot of trees and minds would be saved if this book were to replace typical American "Algebra I" texts ... I applaud UCSMP and AMS for their valuable work on making some of the world's better textbooks available to an Englishreading audience."  Zentralblatt MATH Table of Contents  Numbers and expressions
