college preparation. Highly recommended!

This book is a good source if you want to continue in Math.
It helps if you have a tutor or a teacher teach it.
Review of Algebra 2: Integration, Applications, Connections

critical thinking, and technology. Whether your students are
getting ready for college or the workplace, this program gives
them the skills they need for success.

This book is the one book people who want to learn Algebra 2
need. It completely enhanced my knowledge on the subject, and
took me to a higher level. It will truly make your mind capacious!

This book frustrated me incredibly during the one year period
i had to use it in my schools Algebra class. This book assumes
a lot of unexplained math vocabulary as well as insufficient
examples in each chapter. If you are someone who learns primarily
from examples and sample problems this book will definetely
not fit your needs. There is usually one example for each type
of problem in the lesson and it is impossible to practice your
learning of that problem because in the homework (that includes
answers) there is also usually one problem relating to that
specific type of problem. I don't know if what i am saying is
making sense but DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK unless you enjoy books
with no detailed examples, advanced explanations of concepts
you have probably never learned, and boring real world connections.
After using this book at my school i checked out a few other
books and have found that i really enjoy Algebra when i can
actually understand it and apply my skills. I think the book
is a major deciding point in a students grades. I think more
schools should focus on down to earth, but still informative
books and maybe then they would see more effort applied to difficult
concepts.

When I write this review, I am really referring to both volumes
of the Algebra 1 series. I am a college engineering student
and just completed my fourth calculus course. For the past year
I have tried to help my younger brother in his Algebra class
because this book didn't help at all. Examples are insufficient
and the book and tests are riddled with errors. The teacher
had to work out all the problems because there were so many
mistakes that he could not trust his answer key. A sample of
this book's terrible teaching method can be seen when it expects
students to use the discriminant to find the nature of the roots
for a quadratic equation. It simply has students complete a
table in problem number 44 or something and then expects students
to be able to tell from the results what the nature of roots
for a quadratic equation are on a quiz. Few students succeeded
in accomplishing this. In the chapter discussing radicals, the
definition of a perfect square is never mentioned! Also students
are told to tell the difference between rational and irrational
roots by looking at their calculator display. Perhaps if you
only use this book as a source for problems, it might be OK.
But it is nearly impossible to try and learn something from
this book which seems to be fixated on providing pretty graphics
instead of relevant examples. My advice: Buy some other Algebra
book. It is not possible to put too much effort into the search
for a good algebra book because algebra is really the language
of science and engineering that needs to become second nature.
I haven't seen them myself, but I have heard good things about
Algebra 1 by Paul A. Foerster as well as Algebra: Structure
and Method by Richard G. Brown, Mary P. Dolciani, Robert H.
Sorgenfrey, et. al. You might want to take a look at these books.

I bought this book looking for some self help in the subject
of Algebra,It's pretty good except that it does not give all
the answers to all the questions,they only do a selected amount
of answers,this is really trickey if you don't have an instructor
to guide you.I would recommened this book to a person who just
wants a review in algebra,I would give it a 5 star rating for
that use,but only a 3 star rating for self help.

This book is awesome. I always hated math in high school, and
never did well. In college I left it right to the end of my
program because I dreaded it. This book saved my ... and got
me interested in learning. This is the first math class that
I've done well in and it's all thanks to this book.The Discussion
sections have tons of examples that are meticulously explained.
The Investigations offer a hands on approach to learning through
a sort of discovery approach. Plus it's a workbook so you can
write in it and not have to waste money on paper.I always hated
doing homework, especially story problemsbecause I didn't
know where to start. This book has story problems I could relate
toand some of them even made me laugh. Imagaine actually enjoying
a math book!!!!I even called the publisher to see if they had
a book for the next classI liked it that much! I guess there
will be one next yeartoo late for me but I think I have a
solid base to get going with now.I highly recommend this book.
Every college prealgebra class should use this book and help
take the fear out of math.
