    Designed to be used in conjunction with the Place Value Disks (whole numbers), these 1" square foam tiles (1/4" thick) help students develop a more in-depth understanding of place value – a key concept that can be difficult. There are 30 of each value – 0.1, 0.01, and 0.001 – and they are the same colors as the Place Value Strips (brown, light green, gold). Instruction sheet is included. ~ Janice

    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 Student Book (textbook) is the instruction, divided into chapters, then into lessons. Important notes about the curriculum and its use are found in the front of the book. Students will read the lesson in the Student Book and complete the activity page found in the Teacher Guide (sold separately or as part of the Book 2 Set). That’s how easy it is to use this curriculum. Don’t confuse easy-to-use with over-simplified content. After comparing the content of this course with that of Bob Jones, Saxon, Alpha Omega etc., Principles of Mathematics stays with the pack. It covers all pertinent topics for algebra preparation. While there is quite a bit of reading, the language is fairly easy to read and comprehend (conversational). The text is black and white with examples and illustrations, so may not appeal to your more visual learner. Lessons that have recommended calculator use are marked with a calculator symbol. 

    Book 2 is considered the pre-algebra portion of the program, so students need to be competent in basic functions of fractions, decimals, percent, and basic geometry. Book 2 assumes the knowledge of content presented in Book 1; so if you aren’t sure where to begin, have your student take the placement tests available on our website.

    This is a unique approach to math practice – real world math within the context of the 50 states. Work through each state with place value, rounding, estimation, fractions, and percentages using data taken from the Census Bureau for 2008. We live in Illinois, and one example for our state is, "In 2005, the average cost per day for a hospital stay was $1,637; if you double this number, what digit is in the hundreds place?"

    The cd is full of PDF files (you need Adobe Acrobat Reader) arranged alphabetically by state names. Each section or state is referred to as a 'workbook' and includes basic instruction, objectives, 80 practice problems (20 problems in each area mentioned earlier), answer keys, and "What's the Big Idea" which is a blank page on which the student is to explain what they have learned. All content addresses NCTM standards. The activities can be used to reinforce mathematics and social studies, and is designed for the independent learner. Learn a little more about your state and hone your math skills. ~ Donna

    This book has some overlapping content with E-Z Arithmetic. There's a short review of the four basic operations in chapter one, but then it jumps right into fractions, decimals, percents, beginning algebra, factoring, equations, geometry, tables and graphs, word problems, and probability and statistics. Explanations of concepts and terminology are clear and to the point. Algebraic processes, such as graphing a linear equation or solving a quadratic equation, are systematically broken down and presented as step-by-step procedures. Steps in worked examples are correspondingly numbered for clarity. Each chapter includes a pretest, a posttest, and numerous practice sets. The answer key also provides solutions for more difficult practice problems. 230 pgs. ~ Anh

    A very user-friendly introduction to pre-algebraic concepts. This workbook contains skill introductions, practice problems, and drills for students needing review and extra practice or to challenge beginners. The book is divided into 11 sections with each section featuring student work pages, a review page, and a unit test. Each page covers a different pre-algebraic concept or topic with a box on the top explaining the concept and giving an example of how to work it followed by 10-20 student practice problems. Concepts covered include integers, variables, metric measures, formulas, operations, inequalities, properties, exponents, fractions, mixed numbers, decimals, graphing, percents, rational numbers, square roots, the Pythagorean Theorem, probabilities, and much more. An answer key is included in the back with answers to all of the practice problems, reviews, and tests. The overall workbook is very clean and well organized with more practice per topic and less wasted space than the Pre-Algebra (Step-by-Step) workbook. It is comparable to the 100+ series in the number of practice problems, but explanations are better in this workbook. A very complete, easy to use workbook. ~ Megan
