The text is designed so that students can understand new concepts from reading the text. This book has a lot more words and color than the average math book. It addition to comprehension questions, there are problem solving and review exercises. As with all UCSMP secondary texts, topics are presented in clear ways so that students can teach themselves. Students understand why they are using certain procedures before they practice using them. Other books in the series include {book transition-mathematics}, {book ucsmp-algebra}, {book ucsmp-geometry}, {book functions-statistics-and-trigonometry}, and {book uscmp-precalculus-and-discrete-mathematics}.
