We received No-Nonsense Algebra from Math Essentials to review this summer. This book provides a method of instruction that is “short, concise, and self-contained.” The lessons are clear and free of excess distraction to enable kids to really focus on what the lesson is covering. Easy-to-understand instructions are provided and each lesson provides appropriate practice problems as well as a short section of review to quickly cover previous lessons again.
I went through a section of this with my incoming 7th grader this year and she actually found it to be, not only helpful, but somewhat enjoyable. She asked to take it with us on our recent vacation and work on math “on the go.”
Of course I said, “Yes.”
The video lessons online are great. I usually prefer a hard copy of things like this by way of DVD/CD-Rom, but in this case it was really nice to be able to access the lessons from any computer at any time. The access code is included in every book, so we have the login information available at all times.
The book also provides chapter tests and a final exam. The answer key is included as well. All of this is available to you for only $27.95.
My daughter really liked this one as well and I gave her freedom with it to complete lessons and self-check in the back. She appreciated brushing up on some of these basics over the summer. This book is available for $11.95. Right now, with any order for a Math Essentials item, customers will receive a Free A+ Math Homework kit, a $4.99 value.
