old version is better
there are missing problems at the end of the chapters that is in the older version of the book. You must buy the teacher's edition to get those problems.

Jacobs Algebra offers clear concise instructions and explanations in both the student text and teacher's manual I was impressed with the many visuals and practical applications as well as the multifaceted explanations throughout the coursework My son and I also enjoyed the interesting anecdotes and cartoons within the lessons and he especially enjoyed the challenge of each of the Set IV problems at the end of each lesson In a recent comparison to a public school friend's course and text Jacobs truly offers an excellent study of algebra; we are looking forward to Jacob's geometry!

I used this text to teach Algebra to my daughter and 8 other students when they were in 5th grade Not all of the students chose to continue when it got hard but all of them really enjoyed the way the material is presented and explained The problem sets build up gradually from walking the student through solving the problems to doing them independently I highly recommend using this text to teach Algebra to anyone but particularly younger students and anyone who has struggled with the subject in the pastThe author shows diagrams to develop many of the lessons so it is already friendly to visual learners but I used many hands-on materials along with it I highly recommend using Algebra Models with this or any other text

This textbook was incredible! One of the homeschool moms in our church gave this to us several years ago I was curious about it so I started reading the first lesson and I was amazed at how SIMPLE algebra can be! I would use this for clarification when studying my Saxon Algebra I text in my 8th grade year I especially appreciate the non-intimidating layout of the pages (ie set 1 problems set 2 etc) and the more challenging exercises in Set 4 I highly recommend this book!

This is a terrific textbook--a true classic!! It helped our children do well on their SAT tests and in MathCounts Most of all they learned algebra in an engaging and fun way!

I am on my fourth child doing algebra and it has not been easy for any of them! Being a poor algebra student myself has not helped We have finally found in Jacob's Elementary Algebra a program that actually gives enough instruction that they understand it I rarely need to assist as it is written clearly for the student I highly recommend this for anyone who struggles with algebra

My "twice exceptional" (gifted/talented & learning disabled)(read: visual learner) 7th grader struggled with the school district's Saxon -- she found the repetition excessive and stifling We switched to Jacobs Algebra this year (she was not scheduled for Algebra for two more years) and she loves it The text is clear and engaging -- I do nothing but answer the occasional question and grade her work I have her do the Set 2 problems only; she does Set 3 if she needs extra practice I haven't needed the teacher's manual except for those few occasions (answers for Set 3) For kids who understand concepts quickly and don't need lots of repetition I would particularly recommend Jacobs

I have heard great things about this text.
-Makes Algebra learning relevant (so the kids can see "why we need algebra anyway"
-does away with the endless practice problems that bore students
-begins every lesson with something to open the student's interest.

BEST ANSWER: This edition was just published this year (2016) by a new publisher (Master Books). However, the mathematical content is the same as previous editions although some graphics may have changed.
