Dr. Math Gets You Ready For Algebra
Dr. Math Explains Algebra
By The Math Forum, Drexel University. Read my review of these two refreshing algebra companions. These books are meant for pre-algebra and algebra students, respectively. Both are written in a warm, easy-reading style, with some cartoons in between and clear layout. Dr. Math® books are compiled from the best answers that real math teachers and tutors have written to students' questions over the years at the popular Dr. Math® website.
This is not a textbook, nor does it have any exercises, but instead contains verbial, often humorous explanations of algebra 1 concepts for those who would rather hear or read math explained in many words, instead of in a few symbols. Algebra Unplugged also often explains the reasons behind some peculiar mathematical notations or terminology, and in general, tells the students WHY things are done the way they are done in your "Real Algebra Book". I enjoyed reading through it (read my review). www.amazon.com
Real World Algebra By Edward Zaccaro - who has also written several excellent problem solving books. With his algebra book, you can understand algebra with the help of real-world examples, and realize that mathematics is more than basic facts and memorized procedures. It includes cartoons and little stories that help you remember the rules of algebra. www.amazon.com
Art of Problem Solving: Introduction to Algebra
A good textbook for the mathematically inclined students. For each topic, there are many example problems with detailed solutions and explanations, through which algebraic techniques are taught. The explanations often highlight ideas on best problem solving approaches, which is something you don't usually see in regular algebra textbooks. www.amazon.com
Includes a free algebra 1 textbook called Llevada's Algebra 1, downloadable as PDF files by chapter, containing over 6,000 exercises, plus over 70 videos with lectures and solved exercises. www.algebrafree.com
