    From America's Math Teacher, Richard W. Fisher, comes a very straightforward and logical approach to mastering algebraic concepts. From the beginning of the book to the end, each lesson builds on previous knowledge in a very 'no-nonsense' fashion. The book is divided into chapters – tools for algebra, solving equations, graphing and analyzing linear equations, solving and graphing inequalities, systems of linear equations and inequalities, polynomials, rational expressions, radical expressions and geometry, quadratic equations, and algebra word problems. Every chapter is divided into lessons, and every lesson is one to two pages in length and follows the same format – introduction and explanation, helpful hints, examples, written exercises, review. There is even a final exam to assess the student's understanding. A reference section at the back of the book includes lists of formulas, symbols, multiplication table, prime numbers, squares and roots, fraction/decimal equivalents, and an answer key (not solutions).

    The author offers 6 steps to using this book so it will be the most effective. 1) Read the introduction that contains essential information on the topic and includes important terms and definitions and explanations. 2) Read the 'helpful hints' section that offers tips and shortcuts. 3) Go through the examples by writing them out on your own paper, which will aid in better understanding. 4) Work the exercises, and refer back to the 'helpful hints' as needed. 5) Complete the review section. 6) Correct your work. Seems pretty easy!

    The bonus for this book is the free online video lessons. Mr. Fisher, America's Math Teacher, will narrate students through the concept of each lesson as writing appears on a white board. He works through some examples (different from those found in the book) using visual prompts and making suggestions for ways to remember. He suggests that the student watch the video lesson before going to the book lesson. These short concise self-contained lessons can change the world of algebra for your student. 280 pgs, pb. ~ Donna

    Algebra can be a very difficult course for many students who don't think abstractly. This book offers step-by-step, visual exercises using a balance scale to help with the understanding of 'balancing equations.' Similar to the format of the rest of the Balance Math series, this book additionally offers explanations and instruction for each step of the equation process. For example, the first page shows a balance scale that is level, having a 20 on the left pan and a square containing an x on the right pan. This would indicate that the two are equal. The next illustration shows a balance scale with the square containing the x on the left pan and a question mark (?) on the right pan. To the right of the illustrations is a box with these words, "From the 1st scale we know: 20 = x. Reversing the sides of an equation does not change its value. Therefore, x = 20 =?" Along with the verbiage is a fill-in box where the student will answer "? = ____." The problems are presented as puzzles that engage and really make a student think, and progress from simple to complex. Some review-type pages are placed intermittently throughout the book just to make sure your student understands and can apply concepts. The back of the book offers tips for working with the balance scale visuals, and answers with explanations. The method used for teaching the steps of equations and solving them reminds me a little of the Hands-On Equations products. This would be a super introduction to algebra for younger children, a great tutorial for someone having difficulty with equations, or helpful practice for anyone wants to keep their skills sharp. - Donna

    Have you ever felt like learning Algebra is like trying to learn a strange new language? If so, this book will show you how to translate "Math Talk" into "Plain English". Easy to understand explanations, step-by-step examples, and common pitfalls and mistakes make this a great resource for first-time learners and reviewers alike. Topics covered include integers, solving single variable equations, solving inequalities, graphing linear equations and inequalities, exponents, roots and radicals, quadratic equations, and solving systems of equations. Several short "brain tickler" problem sets are interspersed throughout for practice. 350+ pgs., p/b ~ Anh

    Student Packages include student worktext and test booklet.

    Consumable student worktext contains a mix of practice problems and word problems. Space is provided to work out the problems, but some students may prefer having access to "scratch paper" to work problems, especially at the higher levels. The front of the student worktext includes space to record grades for worksheet pages and tests.

    Consumable test booklet is provided to evaluate student progress. Parents are encouraged to reteach previous lessons if the student does not do well. Mastery is the goal, and lessons build upon one another so that future success is dependent on students really knowing the previous concept.
