I'm not sure if this will help, but Dale Seymour Publications carries a
book that I co-authored with Virginia Thompson, several years ago...but it
is still in print. It is called 'Building Success in Math' and it was
written originally for the adult learner. Much of the material is at the
pre-algebra level. We originally taught extension classes for adults using
this material, and I know now that some community college instructors use
it for short courses.

The chapter titles are:
           Coordinate Graphing and Functions
           Using your calculator
           Geometry and Measurement
           Word Problems ( this has lots of pre-algebra and even algebra
           Probability and Statistics
           Logic and Spatial Problems

Let me know if you'd like more information.... I hope this is useful to
