    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

    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

    The word 'Algebra' can strike fear into the hearts of many, but Critical Thinking Press has done their part to calm your math nerves and prepare students for higher level math in Understanding Algebra. The newest member of the Mathematical Reasoning line is a full one year algebra course for students at the junior high and high school level in a consumable format.

    The information in this worktext is a user-friendly format and presented in a step-by-step fashion. The text makes a connection between the arithmetic of the elementary years to the algebra they need to succeed in high school math. Twelve chapters begin with the basics and build upon each other – Our number system, Evaluating Expressions and Solving Equations, From Words to Algebra/Translating and Solving Word Problems, From Words to Algebra/More Word Problems, Inequalities, Polynomials, Factoring, Working with Radicals, Linear Functions, Systems of Equations and Inequalities, Other Types of Functions, and Working with Algebraic Fractions.

    The author begins the book with a simple explanation of "What is Algebra," and then jumps right in. Each chapter is 20 to 30 pages in length and broken into topics. Each topic or lesson offers the student explanations and examples in a very visual fashion. Colored charts, illustrations, and graphs are incorporated for clarity of explanations. Within the lessons, students will be asked questions to assure they know the concept being presented and a 'more practice' section rounds out the lesson. Sets of 'Enrichment Problems' are scattered throughout the chapters to offer additional practice in higher-order thinking using plenty of word problems. There are no tests in this book, so you would need to assess your student's understanding of the concepts by other means – grades from the practice sets and exercises might be your best tool for assessment.

    A glossary that includes algebra vocabulary and an answer key are found at the back of the book. These are answers and not solutions. Students will learn about the history of math as they learn math strategies to help them with algebra and beyond. 360 pgs. pb. ~ Donna
