Product Reviews Write a review for this product

"I use this book both with homeschoolers and as an ancillary to algebra classes. I especially love the introduction to setting up equations, where there is finally a section that emphasizes the importance of defining variables as the first step. And many of the sections of various types of word problems actually start out with questioning the student on how the variables are defined. Yay! The types are questions are pretty limited to traditional algebra book types--mixtures, coins, distance, etc--but I do like the number and variety of percentage problems, which tend to be a weak point of many of my students." - JRTurner, Austin, TX
