No-Nonsense Algebra: A Schoolhouse Review

We received a copy of No-Nonsense Algebra fromMath Essentials. My 14 year old bug is hopefully ready to tackle some algebra!

No-Nonsense Algebra begins with simple algebraic equations. It is a complete algebra course. Each lesson includes an introduction, exercises, examples and reviews. There is also online teaching for each lesson that is included free with the book purchase. In the back of the book is a website: There is a sticker on the inside back cover of the book. You register at the website using the special code and this is how you get the free online video lessons.

The table of contents include:

          Chapter 1 - Necessary Tools for Algebra
          Chapter 2 - Solving Equations
          Chapter 3 - Graphing and Analyzing Linear Equations
          Chapter 4 - Solving and Graphing Inequalities
          Chapter 5 - Systems of Linear Equations and Inequalities
          Chapter 6 - Polynomials
          Chapter 7 - Rational Expressive (Algebraic Fractions)
          Chapter 8 - Radical Expressions and Geometry
          Chapter 9 - Quadratic Equations
          Chapter10 - Algebra Word Problems

My Thoughts:

I think this is a great product for a great price. My 14 year old bug is  and will enjoy using No-Nonsense Algebra. She likes that the lessons are short and each one of the lessons focuses on one concept with review.

In addition to the No-Nonsense Algebra program, Math Essentials gave each of us crew members an additional Master Essential Math Skills Book. I received the Geometry book. This is a supplement to be used with a full curriculum. It is a good book for more practice and review of Geometry.

No-Nonsense Algebra retails for $27.95.

The Geometry supplement retails for $11.95.

  Disclaimer:  As a member of the TOS crew, I received these two books free for my honest opinion and this reveiw.
