Review of Algebra Assistant Teacher's Resource
Editorial review
Algebra Assistant gave (students) a chance to succeed and to
do something right. It made the difference.
Review of Southwestern Algebra 2, Resource Book: An Integrated Approach, Chapter 16
Editorial review
Sehgal (mathematical and statistical sciences, U. of Alberta,
Canada) and Milies (mathematics and statistics, Universidade
de So Paulo, Brasil) intend this text as an introduction to
the general theory of group rings, which will take the reader
from beginning to research level. The text requires a firstyear
graduate level knowledge of algebra. Coverage includes the basics
of group representation theory and characters, the connections
between this theory and the structure of group algebras, the
isomorphism problem, the basic properties of ideals in group
rings, algebraic elements in group rings, and the structure
of the unit group. For mathematicians working in the area of
group rings, and for use as an introductory text for graduate
students.Book News, Inc.®, Portland, OR
Review of Mathematical Investigations: An Introduction to Algebraic Thinking: Concepts and Processes for the College Student
Editorial review
This introductory reference treats theoretical and practical
aspects of finite commutative ring theory as applied to information
and communication theory. It will be of interest to both professional
and academic researchers in the fields of communication and
coding theory. The book focuses on Galois and quasiGalois rings,
and provides an approach to the study of the purely algebraic
structure and properties of finite commutative rings as well
as to their applications to coding theory, through explanatory
examples rather than abstract presentation. The section on quasiGalois
rings presents new and unpublished results. Some applications
of finite rings, in particular Galois rings, to coding theory
are introduced, using an algebraic and geometric theoretical
background. Bini is affiliated with the University of Michigan.

Review of Advanced Algebra Through Data Exploration: A Graphing Calculator Approach
Reviewed by grafcalc, from DeRidder,
Louisiana
Do you want your students to be centrally active in their algebra
education? Then this text is could be the cornerstone of your
course! The authors present the concepts of algebra as investigations
in which the students participate using graphing calculators
to store, manipulate, and analyze data. By participating in
the current and interesting investigative projects, the students
utilize algebraic concepts as a language to describe their research,
analysis, and conjectures. The course is centered on the graphing
calculator as a technological tool for expressing and investigating
mathematical ideas and concepts. Ideas that had to be visualized
in the students' minds can now be graphically presented through
parametric equations, recursive equations, and their graphs.
"What if .. " can be done within the presentation
with the results displayed in real time. Using this text causes
the student to become an active participant in the course rather
than a passive observer who attempts to repeat the text examples.In
addition to the regular topics covered in typical texts, "Advanced
Algebra Through Data Exploration" has chapters on statistics,
data analysis, trigonometric concepts, and parametric equations.
In each topic, the student is presented with real world applications
and is lead to investigate the concepts through welldesigned
activities that arouse the interest of the students. Rather
than lists of equations to factor and solve, each section offers
situations in which the presented concepts are used to arrive
at a solution. The graphing calculator is used to do the timeconsuming
graph preparation and number crunching so that the student can
spend his/her time in designing and testing problem solving
strategies. This is a welldesigned, new text that is highly
interesting to both student and teacher alike!
Review of Algebra for Athletes
Editorial review
Capitalizes on the wealth of mathematical knowledge student
athletes already possess in scorekeeping and motion in sports
to explain exponents, vector multiplication, and the unit circle
and relate them to students' everyday lives. Applications in
accounting, civil engineering, and other fields are presented
along with sports examples. While meant to appeal to students
who might not otherwise choose to study algebra, material employs
challenging material, much of which is not taught until engineering
school. Includes chapter exercises and answers. Author credentials
are not given.Book News, Inc.®, Portland, OR
Review of Master Math: Basic Math and PreAlgebra (Master Math Series)
Reviewed by distance_cyclist, from CH8155

I was sitting down at work one day and tried to work out a math
problem. I couldn't believe that I had forgotten how to do certain
math calculations. I am fourty years old and figured that I
was in need of a mathematical review. I was able to whiz through
the book and pausing after each chapter, saying to myself, "O.K.
I understand this now, I haven't really lost it all. I just
needed a quick refresher." The book starts out from the
very very basic, explaining the theory and terminology however
when it came to chapter 8 and the explanation of logarithms
things start to become fuzzy. The author should have asked normal
everyday students if they understood what she was talking about.
I recommend Forgotten Algebra from Barron's over this book.

I have always avoided math whenever possible, but now I have
to pass a college level math course in order to complete a degree.
This book has helped me review the basics and slowly work my
way into more advanced math.The only reason I gave it a "4"
is because I find I sometimes need to refer elsewhere for further
information. That is my weakness, though. Not the books. I would
recommend this book to anyone who has to review basic math skills,
and/or move on to higher math.

I like this book. It explains each math concept. It is a good
reference tool for math.
Review of Algebra 1
Reviewed by a reader, from USA
....I preferred books that are written in chapter format. They
are much easier to understand. I don't like the way Saxon used
problem sets. There aren't enough practices for the lessons
taught and too much problems from other lessons. I don't think
that reviewing in such way is necessary, and I believe that
it is better to give enough practices to the lessons that the
students just learn.

I am using this book for my kids. It is a good book.But the
poblem set in each chapter is not enough, just about 20 30
problems. The kids can't get enough exercise.Does anyone know
where I can find the problem set book to use with this book?
thanks

Gee. I didn't realize a doctorate was even offered in "theoretical"
biophysics. Oh well, I may be losing contact with the avant
garde of my field, but I have been homeschooling two bright
kids for...lessee, my son will be 14 in May, my daughter 11
in August, so quite a long time. "Saxon Math" has
been and continues to be the cornerstone, both pedagogically
and pragmatically, of math education in our household. I think
the "incremental" philosophy of John Saxon is unassailable,
this last view offered in the face of evidence from my own experience
as well as from dozens of other committed homeschoolers of my
acquaintance. The results speak for themselves: both of my children
routinely score in the math 99 %tile on national achievement
tests.(Sometimes I subject the kids to BOTH the "Iowa"
AND the CAT. Pretty mean, huh?) I have heard of similar results
from many others. Get Saxon, stick with the program, and math
success is guaranteed, whether you are a math savant or, like
me and mine, just hard working.

It's an Arabic word, "algebra", but, let's face it,
it's "Greek" to most people. Not anymore. Our Algebra
I chart lays out all the basics clearly and concisely.
