Algebra Problem Sets from Dave Srebnick. Dave says, "These problem sets correspond to the McDougal Littell Algebra 1, an Integrated Approach, (c) 1991. I use them for my 8th grade honors class."
Here are the files for my "concrete" algebra class. We use UCSMP Algebra 1, (c) 1998. PSCh4C, the set for the 4th chapter, is under development.
