Editorial review
This onesemester prealgebra text smoothly bridges the gap between
arithmetic and beginning algebra and is suitable for a variety
of course formats, including lab (both supervised and selfpaced),
lecture, group, and a combination of all three. With a heavy
emphasis on important study skills and habits, PREALGEBRA, Third
Edition, aims to instill mathematical confidence and help build
a solid foundation for students going on to future math courses.
The text provides a complete and thorough treatment of algebra
and arithmetic, allowing students to better understand the relationship
between the two. Group activities, scientific calculator exercises,
critical thinking problems, and exercises requiring written
answers are included throughout the text, in accordance with
the latest NCTM Guidelines. This text refers to the Paperback
edition.

I am a graduate student at Queen's University, Canada, and my
research work is heavily involved with linear algebra. I had
looked through many books on this subject, and found this book
most concise and sufficient in exlaining the fundamental theories
of linear algebra. I recommand this book to those who are just
starting to discover the beauty of matrices.
Review of Algebra 2

I am a teacher and I used this book to teach my sixth graders
Algebra 2. I was horrified when over half of the class did not
understand how to do the problems. I looked in the book and
it was true. Sure, the gave a superflous of examples but there
was no step by step guidelines on how to do tricky problems.
I do not recomend this book at all!

This is a great book, if you want to further better yourself

Well i had a lot of trouble in Algebra! I did pretty bad! But
when i really sat down and looked at this book i was able to
just read it and learn it!!! This a is a very helpful book.
My school uses this book. I decided to buy it cause i wanted
to keep reading about Algebra even though i finally Finished
it. this book is excellent and gives very good decriptions about
each step in Algebra 1. i am gonna buy algebra 2 an integrated
approach and Geometry an Integrated Approach. This book is the
best thing to work with to get you through that hellish algebra
experience. I have to admit anybody who can do Algebra IS SMART!!!!

I use this book in school and we have found some of the answers
to be incorrect. They teach somethings very well and others
they don't explain it very well at all! Its good to work with,
but I would not be completely dependant on it.

What is this world coming too. I can't believe a 10 year old
kid can get a hold of such vital information to our everyday
life such as this great Algebra I book. I don't know how they
things in Peggs, Iowa but where I am from there is a thing we
like to call class for our mathmeticians which obviously Iowans
and Tulsans don't have. I don't know who Gil Guttenheimer is
but I intend to meet him. He sounds like a deep and intelectual
person who seems to know what he is talking about. My view on
this book is it is full of inspiring formulas and even better
linear equations. I tell my kids that this book is like a pringles
can, Once you pop the fun never stops. I was doing my nightly
reading of math text books and this one caught off guard as
being the best text book ever written. Put it up for a grammy
or a nobel prize. It is far superior to any other text book
i have ever read and i found my self crying as I poured through
this intelectual stimulator. I was so choked up at the genious
examples in chapter 7 that I had to put it down, for I thought
that I am not good enough to be reading such a exquisite book.
I have read this book several times now and I almost have all
the answers memorized. This book has kept me going through my
life and its teachings have inspired me to come a teacher myself.
I am planning to travel around America on a llama, trying to
spread the wonderful word of the integrated aproach and touch
people with this book, as the way it has touched me. Look in
your local newspaper for when I come to a town near you and
if i never make it to your area, at least take the time to go
through this book and be touched by the miracle of Algebra I,
through the eyes of Ronald E. Larson, my new hero. Although
i plan to get to many cities, Tulsa and Peggs will not be on
my list for the fear of the horrible neglection of the integrated
approach.

This is the greatest mathematical book since Euclid compiled
all the thereoms of geometry. Whoever wrote this book should
be given a medal of honor for his great addition to our mathematical
community. I can't actually believe that some guy from Tulsa
Okalhoma would actually write such a review about a great text
book. My only guess is he had a horrible teacher who couldn't
explain things at all. What ever the kannardeum theorum is,
it is probably just some stupid rendition to the math squarewhich
is my favorite formula. What is your favorite formula? is what
this book left me thinking at the end of the year. I have a
new rendition to the substitution method of solving called the
Berkeum theorm. I am sure it will be all over in a couple of
years. I hope all people from Tulsa aren't as narrowminded as
the one who wrote the other review. Teachers, if you are indecisive
about what math text book to get. This is definately the one
to go with, and parents if you are looking for an award to give
to your kids, this will make them love you forever. I will never
forget when i got my first Algebra book when I was 6.I hope
you find my review useful.

I returned to college after 15 years. Before taking the math
placement tests, I studied Algebra 1 and Algebra 2  I placed
into precalculus and received an A in this class. I credit the
books for giving me these results  prior to this I was a poor
math student. I have just finished calculus (1st class) with
an A. I really recommend both of these books. They helped me
enormously  and I have regained confidence in my math abilities.

This is the best reference handbook that parents and teachers
will fine it useful for students. Algebra to Go, "demystifies
