If the word “equation” makes your child physically ill, check out these pre-algebra textbooks. We’ve included editions that explain core concepts and provide students with a proper foundation, whether you’re a pre-teen entering high school or an adult in need of a refresher. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work. Skip to the best pre-algebra textbook on Amazon.
