Fabulous Algebra 1 book for students, teachers, and tutors

First off, I am a tutor to many Algebra 1 students, including some who take algebra with me for h.s. credit in lieu of taking it at school. I am very familiar w/myriad algebra texts. This book is a jazzier version of the 1994 publishing by Stanley Smith under the Addison Wesley label (owned by the same publishing house as Prentice Hall). I wrote in my review of the 1994 book that my only suggestion would be to take out Chapters 14 & 15 on probability and trig, as they don't really belong in an Alg 1 book. Coincidentally, this book has done exactly that. Hooray! The font, colors, typography, and imagery are more eye-catching than the bland 1994 book, and there are fewer problems of the purely "drill, drill" variety. They've replaced some of those problems with more challenging application problems toward the end of each assignment, but there are still sufficient problems for assigning many practice & drill problems. In fact, most of the problems are exactly the same as in the 1994 text. Overall, it's a nice improvement over the older text. They made it more visually and otherwise interesting *without* sacrificing content, as so many algebra texts do. This alone sets it apart from the majority of US-published algebra texts out there. (I tend to agree with a former teacher of mine when he said that, in his experience, the quality of a text is inversely proportional to the number of pretty pictures in it.) :-) I will continue to refer my students to algebra texts authored by Stanley Smith.

Algebra Book

My kid has just started using this book for his algebra class. It seems to be a good book. The examples are very informative and self explanatory. The examples cover basic concepts and then move into more complicated cases. The practice problems are well designed for the students to further and reinforce the learning experience.

Algebra 1

Great text book for school, has helped me a lot. Very self-explanitory.

My Review

I have used this book for 3 years now in helping to tutor students who are having difficulty in Algebra 1. It has 15 Chapters of increasing difficulty, which poses a new challenge for students each day. If you wish to learn Algebra One, This is the book to use, along wth its sister book "Algebra & Trigonometry", which is even more challenging with teaching Algebra 2.
