Overview

One of the most commonly asked questions in a mathematics classroom is, “Will I ever use this stuff in real life?” Some teachers can give a good, convincing answer; others hem and haw and stare at the floor. The real response to the question should be, “Yes, you will, because algebra gives you power” – the power to help your children with their math homework, the power to manage your finances, the power to be successful in your career (especially if you have to manage the company budget). The list goes on.

Algebra is a system of mathematical symbols and rules that are universally understood, no matter what the spoken language. Algebra provides a clear, methodical process that can be followed from beginning to end to solve complex problems. There’s no doubt that algebra can be easy to some while extremely challenging to others. For those of you who are challenged by working with numbers, Algebra I For Dummies can provide the help you need.

This easy-to-understand reference not only explains algebra in terms you can understand, but it also gives you the necessary tools to solve complex problems. But rest assured, this book is not about memorizing a bunch of meaningless steps; you find out the whys behind algebra to increase your understanding of how algebra works.

In Algebra I For Dummies, you’ll discover the following topics and more:

  • All about numbers – rational and irrational, variables, and positive and negative
  • Figuring out fractions and decimals
  • Explaining exponents and radicals
  • Solving linear and quadratic equations
  • Understanding formulas andsolving story problems
  • Having fun with graphs
  • Top Ten lists on common algebraic errors, factoring tips, and divisibility rules

No matter if you’re 16 years old or 60 years old; no matter if you’re learning algebra for the first time or need a quick refresher course; no matter if you’re cramming for an algebra test, helping your kid with his or her homework, or coming up with next year’s company budget, Algebra I For Dummies can give you the tools you need to succeed. The included workbook features over 290 pages with hundreds of practice problems, along with answers and explanations to show you where you went wrong (or right).  Add this onto Algebra I For Dummies, and you have an equation for numerical success!

AUTHOR BIO: Mary Jane Sterling has taught mathematics at Bradley University since 1979, and has also taught math and the high school and junior high school levels.

    I would have been lost without it!

    Chapter 19 on graphing equations and (slope) intercepts was extremely helpful. I went from a pre-quiz grade of 26 to an actual grade of 93 after studying with the book. Everything is layed out in a simple way and is very clear. I cannot say enough great things about this book!

    I love Sugar's "The Silent Crisis Destroying America's Brightest Minds"

    Sugar's 'The Silent Crisis Destroying America's Brightest Minds" is a book that is all about educational reality, the facts on the ground, not vacuous educational theories.

    Sugar pioneered the SMARTGRADES school notebooks that contain the new learning technology, ACANDY Processing Tools, that empower students for academic success. She transformed my kids into Grade A students, soI speak from experience, not hypothetical theory.

    about the book

    this is one of the many books I am working with to help me produce a video
    for the New York State regents. I have not shown it to my class because
    they may think I am calling them a dummy.It is a very good book.
