This is the fifth volume of the Learn Math Fast System. It teaches Algebra I in a casual, conversational tone with low-vocabulary. Students will learn how to factor quadratic equations and understand what they are doing. Algebra doesn't have to take a year to learn. With the Learn Math Fast System your teenage student can learn Algebra, and learn it well, in about two months.
Other topics include Irrational Numbers, Combining Like Terms, Multiplying and Dividing with Exponents, Square Root, Cube Root, Polynomials, Binomials, Laws of Algebra, Graphing a Parabola, an Intro to Functions, and more.
All of the answers are in the back, and not just the answers, the FULL solutions, so kids can find out where they went wrong. If you are planning to take the SAT, ACT, or a Placement Test, then you must read this book first. Then follow it up with volume 6 of the Learn Math Fast System to learn Algebra 2.
Looking for a streamlined curriculum with targeted goals spanning from beginning math to High School Geometry? The title’s fast highlights this 7-volume 2nd edition curriculum’s goal: to develop students who can quickly produce automatic, confident responses to math problems. This mastery-based program presents math concepts in a sequential manner. Topically arranged, each of these un-graded levels handles multiple concepts and can be used by multiple ages as a supplement or stand-alone. More mastery-based, this program can help shore up math skills or help struggling learners who are behind in levels. No matter your student’s grade, the author recommends starting at Level 1. However, free placement tests are available from the publisher’s website to either complete online or print. (http://learnmathfastbooks.com/placement-test-i.html) Level 1 contains 4 instruction pages for using the overall program with different aged learners. No teacher guide is available; answers and detailed solutions (which vary based on level) are included in the back of each book.
Each softcover book includes detailed lessons written in a conversational—and sometimes humorous—style at a 3rd-4th grade reading level. At the lower levels, topics are introduced using a few different methods including tips and shortcuts and using U.S. coins as manipulatives. Concepts are taught, a practice worksheet follows, and then there is a timed test. Students practice until they feel confident on the concept and complete the test before moving on to the next concept. At higher levels, students are taught the concept and complete a worksheet, with the possibility of repeated practice through free worksheets. All levels include chapter tests and a final review test. Geometry requires a manipulative kit, included in the set.
Students can write in the book but it is designed as a non-consumable and unlimited downloads of worksheets are available at the publisher’s web site with the included code.
Supplemental materials include a water- and tear-proof, 8.5x11” Big, Big Bookmark which serves as a reference guide of main math concepts for all books. For Geometry (2nd ed), the Smart Cards include four 3”x 6 1/2” postulate cards; 5 smart cards to review rules for angles, triangles, quadrilaterals, polygons and circles; a form to make a cube; and a pencil. The Geometry Kit (contained in a zippered vinyl pouch with 3-hole punch) is a simple, helpful set that includes 15 1-inch foam squares; a 1-inch plastic ball; protractor and two kinesthetic cards which help teach Pi; a square foot paper; a formula card; a square, rectangle, and one each of an equilateral, right triangle, and isosceles triangle cards with helpful reminders printed on one side. Books range from 148-348 pgs, pb. ~ Ruth
