Publisher Comments:

For students who break out in a cold sweat at the mention of any math subject, Painless Algebra is a way to relax and learn without pain. The author's approach eliminates confusion by taking math details one at a time and transforming algebra into a subject everybody can master--and even enjoy! Painless Algebra is an ideal self-teaching text for middle-school students who need more help than they're getting in the classroom. It also makes fine preparation for those taking SAT, ACT and other tests where questions include math problems. A user-friendly introductory chapter gives meanings in simple English for algebraic terms, instructs on the correct order of operations when solving a problem, and outlines numbers properties and systems. Following chapters cover integers, equations with one variable, inequalities, systems of equations, exponents, roots and radicals, and quadratic equations. Each chapter contains fun-to-solve "brain tickler" problems, with answers.

PAINLESS

Algebra

Second Edition

Really. This isn't going to hurt at all . . .

If you break out in a cold sweat at the very mention of algebra, this book will show you how to relax and master the subject without pain. The problems you now consider confusing are taken slowly, step by step. Simply follow the painless steps and soon you'll wonder why you were ever confused in the first place! You start with integers, progress to simple equations with one variable, then move forward to gain a clear understanding of inequalities, systems of equations, exponents, and roots and radicals. Finally, you graduate to mastery of quadratic equations. Along the way, you'll find fun-to-solve "brain tickler" problems in every chapter. Each "brain tickler" comes with an answer, but before you knot it, you'll be figuring out all the answers for yourself.

For Middle School and High School Students

Synopsis:

For students who are intimidated by all forms of math, here is a set of easy steps that lead to an understanding of elementary algebra. The author defines all terms, points out potential pitfalls in algebraic calculation, and makes problem solving a fun activity. New in this edition are painless approaches to understanding and graphing linear equations, solving systems of linear inequalities, and graphing quadratic equations.

Barron's popular Painless Series of study guides for middle school and high school students offer a lighthearted, often humorous approach to their subjects, transforming details that might once have seemed boring or difficult into a series of interesting and mentally challenging ideas. Most titles in the series feature many fun-to-solve "Brain Tickler" problems with answers at the end of each chapter.
