The Algebra Survival Guide lives up to its name by making this subject clear, easy and fun to learn. In a bold and lively manner, the Survival Guide tackles the main areas of PreAlgebra and Algebra 1. Students who work their way through the Guide will conquer all of these topics: Properties of Numbers, Sets of Numbers, Positive and Negative Numbers, the Order of Operations, Absolute Value, Exponent Rules, Radical Rules, Factoring Procedures, Canceling, Solving Equations, the Coordinate Plane and yes even those dreaded Word Problems.
The book is uniquely successful, in part, because it uses an engaging question/answer format. Based on author Josh Rappaport’s many years’ work as a math tutor, the book asks the questions that students want to ask but feel too scared to do so in a classroom. For each candid question posed, the book teaches students the answer in conversational prose that’s clear, friendly and instructive. Winner of a Parents’ Choice Commendation and a Golden Porch award for instructional excellence, the Survival Guide not only calms the nerves of befuddled students, it also helps parents re-learn algebra so they, in turn, can, help their children. The Guide is packed with practice problems (and all answers), to help students stay on track each step of the way.
