Review
Dr. Math Gets You Ready for Algebra is a compilation of actual letters from students who were having difficulties with some of the basic mathematics concepts that are used as a basis for algebra. The questions are answered in detail by math doctors from the Math Forum's "Ask Dr. Math" service. The content of the book is aimed at students in prealgebra or first-year algebra.
The book is well organized; its five sections include fundamental operations, integers, concepts of real numbers, equations with variables, and word problems and real-life situations. The question-and-answer format is excellent, and the explanations are easily read and understood. Also, Web resources for further exploration of concepts are included at the end of each section.
I shared this book with a colleague who teaches prealgebra. She...


Algebra Unplugged

The Phi Delta Kappan, Feb 1998
It's a remarkable little book by Kenn Amdahl, a poet and former math-phobe and Jim Loats, a math professor. Be advised that Algebra Unplugged does not take the approach that your high school math teacher and textbook took. It certainly answers some basic questions differently. Amdahl and Loats cover pretty much all the topics of first-year algebra and a great deal of earlier math that many kids don't really have a grip on. And they do it all in just 258 pages of remarkably readable and often hilarious text. Both of my daughters read the book. One, a true math-phobe probably managed to pass algebra in ninth grade as much because of this little book as because of her teacher. My other daughter profited as well, though she's a math lover.
