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 first-year 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 quasi-Galois 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 The section on quasi-Galois rings presents new and unpublished results.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.

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 well-designed 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 time-consuming graph preparation and number crunching so that the student can spend his/her time in designing and testing problem solving strategies. This is a well-designed, 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 Pre-Algebra (Master Math Series)

Reviewed by distance_cyclist, from CH-8155 Niederhasli Switzerland
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.

Review of Algebra 1

Editorial review
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.

Reviewed by a reader, from Boca Raton, FL
This is probably one of the best guides for algebra on the market. The author is a world-class mathematics teacher who has taught for over 25 years. The content of this guide is organized to help the student organize and understand fundamental algebra concepts. A winner in every respect.
