Algebra Survival Guide Workbook Second Edtn
When used together, the Algebra Survival Guide and Workbook provide a complete Algebra 1 curriculum. Each problem set, which targets a specific concept, is page-correlated to the Algebra Survival Guide for easy reference. Although this workbook can be used as a stand-alone practice resource, it works best used with the Algebra Survival Guide. A complete answer key to the thousands of practice problems is included. 58 reproducible pgs.
Please note that the workbook is still on the first edition, and does not contain additional questions and solutions for the new final chapter in the 2nd edition Survival Guide. However, the 2nd Ed. Algebra Survival Guide will include links to access additional problems and answers for the new chapter online.
"A Conversational Handbook for the Thoroughly Befuddled." Yup, that's what it's like, alright. Just like a friend to help you through those "hard times" in math. This book kindly takes you by the hand and incrementally, step-by-step and question by question, teaches you the whys and hows of algebra. The book is even formatted to appeal to algebraically turned-off students, sympathetic to their predicament, but ready to "deal with it". The self-teaching, self-paced text has received accolades from students, teachers and publications ranging from Home Education Magazine to The Washington Times. Every page, or bite-sized "mini-lesson" is presented in question and answer format. There are five "types" of pages (designated by muted graphic): Mind Munchies (introduce/explain concepts), Bare Bones (information to memorize cold), Step by Step (how to do it), Pitfall (common mistakes/misunderstandings to avoid), and Target Practice (practice problems) plus QuikCheck problems (boxes on these pages with just a few problems to make sure students grasp the concept taught on the page). These are gathered into 12 content sections: Properties, Sets of Numbers, Positive & Negative Numbers, Order of Operations & Like Terms, Absolute Value, Exponents, Radicals, Factoring, Cancelling, Equations, the Coordinate Plane, and Word Problems. The new 2nd Edition of the Algebra Survival Guide also includes a large chapter on Advanced Algebraic word problems. Altogether they constitute a complete Algebra I course. You can use this book as an Algebra I text (especially good for math- or algebra-phobic students) or as a comprehensive reference for students who are using another algebra program, but have difficulty understanding certain concepts. Both the Survival Guide and the Workbook are now both revised and are both 2nd Ed.
