Book Description

Jan. 1 2010 Algebra Survival
Following on the success of the Algebra Survival Guide, the Algebra Survival Guide Workbook presents thousands of practice problems (and all answers) to help children master algebra. The problems are keyed to the pages of the Algebra Survival Guide, so that children can find detailed instructions and then work the sets. Each problem set focuses like a laser beam on a particular algebra skill, then offers ample practice problems. Answers are conveniently displayed in the back. This book is for parents of schooled students, homeschooling parents and teachers. Parents of schooled children find that the problems give their children a leg up for mastering all skills presented in the classroom. Homeschoolers use the Workbook - in conjunction with the Guide - as a complete Algebra 1 curriculum. Teachers use the workbook's problem sets to help children sharpen specific skills - or they can use the pages as tests or quizzes on specific topics. Like the Algebra Survival Guide, the Workbook is adorned with beautiful art and sports a stylish, teen-friendly design.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Classic Start! July 7 2004

As in my review of the Algebra Survival Book itself, I have nothing but praise for this workbook and for the simplicity and clarity these books offer jointly.
I would recommend this as a MUST have if you seriously want to begin understanding the fundamentals of Algebra.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best algebra guide on the market May 9 2010
By sloan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Trust me when I say this the best Alegbra guide on the market. I know because I tried them all(no joke.) As an adult, who never had Algebra in high school, I was not prepared for it in college. And there are few college courses that go all the way back to the beginning, mine expected that you already had basic algebra fundamentals. The guide along with the workbook, actually replaced my textbook. The textbook was simply put, confusing, and unrelatable. The guide, and workbook were lifesavers for me. The clear, precise and easy to understand examples clarified much of what confused me. And associating all of the properties and laws to analogies worked liked a charm. In fact, I soon learned I knew th properties and laws better than my classmates and began using the analogies to explain them so they to could remember all the little tricks this guide taught me. My teenage son, who has struggled with Algebra, now has his own copies and wonders why his teachers have never thought to make it so easy to learn.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommend the book and workbook Aug. 27 2007
By T. Malnar - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I purchased the Algebra Survival guide and the workbook for my sons who would be taking Algebra in 8th grade. They easily completed the entire book over the summer. The survival guide is easy to understand. The Emergency Fact sheet will be a great reference. They will sail through Algebra this year.
I highly recommend these books as a prelude to classroom Algebra for all students.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Ever Feb. 6 2010
By Mary O. Paddock - Published on Amazon.com

I'll bet a lot of mothers have hugged this author.

I'm a homeschooler with one boy in college and another in public high school. I'm also math challenged so teaching algebra was a nightmare and I felt that my very bright older boys suffered because of it (though they are now both near the top of their classes). I was fine with teaching basic math skills as I know exactly where math falls apart for most kids who learn to hate it. Algebra was an entirely different story. I simply didn't get it, and consequently, neither did my boys. What they did get was that algebra was a horrible subject that should be hated. This feeling was not on the list of things I wanted my sons to inherit from me.

I was determined that it would be better for my younger two and I went in search of a user friendly book that would break it down to manageable steps so that I could teach it effectively and they could master it comfortably.

Enter Algebra Survival Handbook and Workbook. Combined, these two are an unbeatable teaching tool. My third born (who dislikes math intensely) has grown confident enough to teach himself with only occasional help from me. When I do have to step in, I'm able to quickly scan the previous pages and explain what he's missing without feeling like I'm all thumbs. I am learning as much as he is.

Each lesson carefully builds on the concepts you learned previously, just a few problems at a time, with only one or two steps added. His "ohh this is so easy--watch this--" approach builds concepts in the student. He also admits when something is confusing and then goes on to make sure that the student doesn't stay that way.

If you are a homeschooler, you should add this tool to your arsenal.
