Review of Making Algebra Come Alive: Student Activities & Teacher Notes (Math Assessment Series)
Editorial review
Algebara Alive! provides versatile enrichment exercises for
teaching a broad range of mathematical topics and applications.
Each activity is presented as a reproducible student investigation.
It is followed by guidelines and notes for the teacher. Each
activity is keyed to the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics
(NCTM) Standards, Revised. This link to the NCTM standards allows
teachers to facilitate linking classroom activities to specific
state and school district content standards.First and foremost,
the activities are meant to be motivational. As much as possible,
we want this book to achieve the goal of being attractive to
people who thought they didn't like mathematics. To accomplish
this, it is necessary for the activities to be quite different
from what students encounter in their basal textsdifferent
in both substance and form. This seems especially critical;
no matter how excellent a basal text is being used, nearly every
class experiences the "blahs." Unfortunately, this
sort of boredom is often well entrenched long before the teacher
and perhaps even the students are aware of it. Presenting activities
on a regular basis gives the variety and change of pace needed
to sustain interest in any subject.
Review of Painless Algebra (Barron's Painless Series)
Editorial review
For students who break out in a cold sweat at the mention of
math, "Painless Algebra" eliminates confusion by taking
math details one at a time and transforming algebra into a subject
anyone can master.

I have always had a fascination for higher mathematics, but
I've never bothered to learn much of anything about it. When
I bought this book, I had forgotten just about everything I
ever knew about Algebra 1. I couldn't remember the difference
between a coefficient and a variable. I ought to be embarrassed,
but I am now too old to care what people think of me for reading
a book that's obviously designed for kids. Now I'm starting
to think that, if math is really this much fun, I'll be reading
PAINLESS DIFFERENTIAL EQUATIONS in another year or two.

In '93, I withdrew from college because I could not pass prealgebra.
I never took algebra in high school, so I was lost in my college
prealgebra class by the second week. My professor told me to
withdraw in order to save my GPA which was quite high.Fast forward
to 2001. I bought this book and it really opened my eyes! I
can see where I made my mistakes in class and I can understand
the concepts that my prof. and a tutor could not get me to understand.
Everything seems so simple nowsome of my past mistakes were
very simple ones! This book is real easy to understand. The
book breaks down each concept and the problems are broken down
step by step so it's real easy to see what you have to do. It
took me only a halfhour to memorize the Order of Operations
and apply that to the problems. If you use this in tandem with
a book you have for a class, it will make things really easy.
The books takes you from the beginning (what a variable is)
all the way to graphing two dimensions on a graphing table.My
husband who was a math whiz in school looked at this book and
said it's an Algebra 1 book. I'm hoping to understand the concepts
thoroughly so I can take a PreAlgebra placement test and pass
for credit.The only negative things I have to say are that there
aren't enough problems to work on. And, my husband said it was
a shame that there was only ONE problem (at the end of the book)
that shows graphing in three dimensions. He said since the author
put that in, she should have continued on with more problems
for that concept, or she should have left it out.I'm just so
happy about the fact that I can finally understand Algebra!
It's like a lightbulb went off in my head. Now, I'm going back
to college to finish my degree!

My 12yearold wanted to learn more about algebra. He is teaching
himself by reading this book. The author clearly explains topics
without a lot of confusing text. There are cartoons and illustrations
in the book to break up the monotony. It's kind of like a workbook.
Highly recommended. Wish there was a "Painless Geometry."
Reviewed by possum2, from Texas
What a wonderful book! While it does not have as many exercises
as some of the bigger books, it does a great job of making algebra
clear and easy. There were some sections of algebra that other
books left me feeling confused about; Painless Algebra cleared
up my questions right away, and I was surprised at how quickly
I understood it! I just wish there was a Painless Geometry,
Painless Trig, Painless Calculus... That's a hint to the author!

This book is an excellent overview for people who may not have
had any algebra for a long time, it is clear, and has very good
examples and explanations. Unlike many 'learn algebra' type
books, this one shows you exactly how to do the problems from
start to finish. I believe you could actually teach yourself
an entire semester of algebra on your own with only this book
as a teacher. I highly reccomend it.

I got this book recently because I needed a simple small "transition"
book to review all the Algebra I had lost from taking Geometry.
Well... I really like this book. It is very useful and I hope
to be able to easily integrate it with the rest of all my studying
materials. I really like how it has such an easy interface and
is small. (to fit in small backpack pockets) For these first
months of Algebra II, you guys that are too dumb to remember
you basic algebra (like me), get this book. It is a great tool
for reviewing even the most important sections in Algebra. Thanks
Cliff Notes... you allow people to slack at all times of the
year. :)

The book is an excellent review of the subject for those who
need to brush up on the subject after many years away from formal
mathematics. Provides a down and dirty guide to entry level
college algebra with emphasis on process. Problem solving rather
than jargon takes precedence. Provides many useful rules that
were never taught in school. I find myself referring to it frequently
in higher level college math courses.

This book really helped me prepare for Algebra II. With the
help of this book, I had a 97% in the first semester and a 94%

Review of What Is Algebra Good for & Will I Ever Use It?/Standard
Editorial review
The June 1995 proceedings contain a mixture of research and
expository papers sampling advances in ordered algebraic structures
with an emphasis on general topology, category theory, and model
theory. The 13 contributions survey the stateofart in frings
and the homological dimension of rings of continuous functions,
provide a primer to topology and Stone duality, (The editor
says students following these directions can't get lost.) survey
archimedean latticeordered groups with actions, and present
research results in topology, category theory, and group theory
which share new perspectives such as proving significant results
on SVspaces using conventional resources. Lacks an index.

Review of Elementary Algebra: A Straightforward Approach
Editorial review
Synthesizes findings of research mathematicians at the Georgian
Academy of Sciences regarding the branch of algebra that deals
with nonadditive functors and their homological properties.
Emphasizes functors from arbitrary categories to the category
of modules, group valued functors, and commutative semigroup
valued functors. Defines universal sequences of functors and
discusses them in terms of presheaves of categories and extended
cases, establishes the functorial properties of the nonabelian
derived functors of group valued functors and demonstrates applications
to homology and cohomology, treats the cohomology of monoids
with coefficients in semimodules, explains the MacLane cohomology
and homology of rings, obtains the algebraic and topological
Kfunctors, and introduces a nonabelian tensor product of groups
for noncompatible actions. No index. Book News, Inc.®,
