We offer an article and a power point presentation with suggestions on how to teach elementary algebra to college students. These training materials discuss difficulties experienced by STEM students when studying algebra as well as common mistakes and offer explanations of difficult points, which students find helpful. Of course, students succeed best if the newly acquired concepts are constantly reinforced throughout their STEM course.
