This Algebra Essentials Practice Workbook with Answers provides ample practice for developing fluency in very fundamental algebra skills - in particular, how to solve standard equations for one or more unknowns. These algebra 1 practice exercises are relevant for students of all levels - from grade 7 thru college algebra. With no pictures, this workbook is geared strictly toward learning the material and developing fluency through practice. This workbook is conveniently divided up into seven chapters so that students can focus on one algebraic method at a time. Skills include solving linear equations with a single unknown (with a separate chapter dedicated toward fractional coefficients), factoring quadratic equations, using the quadratic formula, cross multiplying, and solving systems of linear equations. Not intended to serve as a comprehensive review of algebra, this workbook is instead geared toward the most essential algebra skills. Each section begins with a few pages of instructions for how to solve the equations followed by a few examples. These examples should serve as a useful guide until students are able to solve the problems independently. Answers to exercises are tabulated at the back of the book. This helps students develop confidence and ensures that students practice correct techniques, rather than practice making mistakes. The copyright notice permits parents/teachers who purchase one copy or borrow one copy from a library to make photocopies for their own children/students only. This is very convenient for parents/teachers who have multiple children/students or if a child/student needs additional practice. An introduction describes how parents and teachers can help students make the most of this workbook. Students are encouraged to time and score each page. In this way, they can try to have fun improving on their records, which can help lend them confidence in their math skills.
Offers tips and instructions for solving algebra problems, including absolute value, quadratic equations, and graphing rational equations.
CONCEPT: This algebra workbook has a creative twist: A picture of a Cuddly Bear is used in place of a boring old X for the unknown. The idea behind adding this artistic touch to the equations is to help make algebra seem a little more fun and enjoyable. Students don't need to draw bears in their solutions, though - they can write X if they want. However, there is an opportunity for students to be creative - for example, they could draw smiley faces instead of X's. INSTRUCTION: The staff at Al-Bear Einstein developed a concise, one-page introduction to each chapter that explains what to do in simple terms and provides an instructive example to serve as a guide. The description emphasizes the underlying concept, like dividing both sides by the same number. The material is presented in stages: A new technique is introduced in each stage, allowing students to focus on and master one idea at a time. Review sections help to reinforce the older material and force students to learn when to apply the various techniques. The Cuddly Bears drawn by artist Bearlyn help to engage student interest and make the learning process fun. STRUCTURE: This workbook offers plenty of practice applying basic algebra skills to solve equations. The problems start out simple, like X + 4 = 12, and progressively advance, culminating in equations like 3 X + 8 = 9 X - 16 (but with Cuddly Bears instead of X's). The problems are written in a large font. ANSWERS: Teachers or parents can check the answers at the end of the workbook. LEVEL. This workbook focuses on basic algebra skills. No prior experience with algebra is needed. The goal is to learn how to solve for one unknown in a linear equation using basic arithmetic operations. All of the answers are positive integers. There are no fractions. All of the problems can be solved without a calculator with elementary arithmetic with the numbers 1 thru 9. This way, students can focus on the main idea without distracting complications. CONTENTS: The stages of this workbook are presented as follows: This workbook begins with simple equations that can be solved with a single arithmetic operation, like adding a constant to both sides. Each of the first four sections focuses on a different operation. This allows students to master one technique at a time. A review section mixes the four operations together. The next section combines operations together. For example, it may be necessary to first subtract a number from both sides and then divide both sides by a number. Students next learn how to add the unknown to both sides of the equation in order to solve the problem. The last section offers ample practice with equations of the form 3 X + 8 = 23 - 2 X. Students must add or subtract both constants and unknowns to/from both sides of the equation in order to solve these problems.
This practice book is designed to help students develop proficiency with their multiplication skills by offering ample practice. Computer-generated answers have been included at the back of the workbook so that students, parents, or teachers may quickly check the results of their solutions. There is plenty of space for students to write their solutions. This book is conveniently divided up into six parts: Part 1 reviews the fundamental multiplication facts between single-digit factors since swift knowledge of these is critical toward multiplication mastery. Parts 2 and 3 are limited to single-digit numbers times multi-digit numbers. This way students are not challenged with too much too soon. Part 4 involves double-digit numbers times double-digit numbers. Part 5 involves double-digit numbers times triple-digit numbers. Part 6 involves triple-digit multiplication. A multiplication table is provided for students who are not yet fluent with their division facts.

AUTHOR: Chris McMullen earned his Ph.D. in physics from Oklahoma State University and currently teaches physics at Northwestern State University of Louisiana. He developed the Improve Your Math Fluency series of workbooks to help students become more fluent in basic math skills. WHAT TO EXPECT: This is a workbook designed to offer plenty of practice with essential skills. It is not a textbook designed to teach trigonometry, but a workbook designed to supplement a student's instruction in trigonometry. Examples and a brief description of the concepts are included to serve as a quick refresher and a guide. If you need more instruction, you should use this workbook in combination with a textbook. The last chapter involves applications of trig identities, which is a challenging topic that will mostly interest more advanced students. A few chapters are intended to help students memorize the trig functions of common angles like 30, 150, or 315 degrees, which will be especially useful for students who may take exams without a calculator (that's the case with the MCAT and many math and science courses). There may be more practice than many students need, which is much better than having too little practice. Any extra pages may be helpful for teachers or parents with multiple children. DESCRIPTION: This Trigonometry Essentials Practice Workbook with Answers provides ample practice for developing fluency in very fundamental trigonometry skills. Every problem can be answered without a calculator, which is very helpful for students who aren't allowed to use a calculator. This is the case in some trig and physics courses, as well as some standardized exams (like the MCAT). CONTENTS: This workbook is conveniently divided up into 11 chapters so that students can focus on one trigonometry skill at a time. Skills include the following: converting between degrees and radians; expressing sine, cosine, tangent, secant, cosecant, and cotangent as fractions by looking at right triangles; solving for unknown sides and angles in 45°-45°-90° and 30°-60°-90° right triangles; determining the sine, cosine, tangent, secant, cosecant, and cotangent of multiples of 30° and 45° up to 360° (working with both degrees and radians); practice finding the reference angle for angles in Quadrants II, III, and IV; finding the inverse trig functions; applying the law of sines and the law of cosines to solve for unknown sides and angles in acute and obtuse triangles; solving problems with trig identities (like the angle sum and difference formulas); and solving algebraic equations that feature basic trig functions. EXAMPLES: Each section begins with a few pages of instructions for how to solve the problems followed by some examples. These examples should serve as a useful guide until students are able to solve the problems independently. ANSWERS: Answers to exercises are tabulated at the back of the book. This helps students develop confidence and ensures that students practice correct techniques, rather than practice making mistakes. PHOTOCOPIES: The copyright notice permits parents/teachers who purchase one copy or borrow one copy from a library to make photocopies for their own children/students only.
