Garland, TX (PRWEB) June 05, 2012
On May 15, 2012, Canaa Lee published a collection of math stories entitled, "Algebra for the Urban Student." She is the daughter of Kathleen D. Lee and the late Travis O. Lee. Canaa has been a teacher for 11 years now and loves algebra. She has watched students struggle in math year after year and wanted to help students wrap their minds around abstract math concepts. Lee is an expert algebra teacher. She also orchestrated a math enrichment program, Project (Educating and Diversifying to Grow Exponentially) EDGE in Garland, TX. Not only do students struggle with math but they also struggling with reading.
Lee is hosting a book signing in Brinkley, AR. The book signing is to be held at the Brinkley Convention Center on Saturday, June 16, 2012, from 10 am to 4 pm. For those who are not able to attend the book singing, Algebra for the Urban Student can be purchased from directly Canaa or purchased from iUniverse at the following link: http://bookstore.iuniverse.com/Products/SKU-000571076/Algebra-for-the-Urban-Student.aspx
In addition to Algebra for the Urban Student, Canaa Lee is writing a sequel that is due to be released August 2012. After the release of the sequel to Algebra for the Urban Student, she also plans to write a series of children math books. Please visit http://www.edukateacademybooks.com.
The students Lee teaches inspired "Algebra for the Urban Student." The book started off as just a collection of units for her students so she could ensure that were exposed to and master all the topics for the assessments. Parents commented on homework assignments because they could now help their children with their homework because it was easy to understand and and easy to follow without stepping foot in the classroom! For the first time, many students understood their homework and could complete their assignments. Also, students were improving their reading and comprehension skills in both English and algebra! Canaa Lee has written enough units and assessments to write a book. Textbooks are designed for math teachers and professors; "Algebra for the Urban Student" is intended for the common student.
