Children's LiteratureThe introduction contains several good suggestions that will help students with their math problems, and it is suggested that the student reread the introduction once a week during the school year. The format of the book is question and answer. While not a textbook with complete explanations, the book is a relative easy read that explains many points that confuse students in language that relates to high school students. There are a few possible typographical errors. On page 79, the second step to solve the equation by removing the 6 should read (by dividing both sides by 6). Also, on page 84, the expression x2 + 10x — 25 should read x2 + 10x + 25 so that the expression will be a binomial square. Finally, on page 117, the first expression in the second group of expressions should have a negative sign in front of the 9x4 in order for it to be rearranged as a difference of two squares. There are Rx hints scattered throughout the book that are quite helpful. The cartoons contain much information. There are numerous web addresses from the "Math Forum" web site listed at the end of each chapter. These web sites are excellent resources for students to get help with homework by asking questions of the volunteers who man the site. This is very good resource for a math classroom. 2004, John Wiley & Sons, Ages 13 up.
