Get the hang of math and pre-algebra by working on real problems

Math can be daunting for anyone, but it doesn’t have to be—this workbook provides the tools you need to get the hang of basic math and pre-algebra by doing! From basic math like adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing to more complex topics like algebraic equations, prime numbers, and negative numbers, the workbook will show you the ins and outs of math to get you ready for algebra in no time!

  • Master the Big Four operations — addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division, including a clear explanation of long division
  • Crunch the numbers — powers and square roots, negative numbers, absolute value, and inequalities
  • Understand factors and multiples — tricks for finding divisibility, prime and composite numbers, greatest common factor (GCF), and least common multiple (LCM)
  • Slice things up — fractions, decimals, percents, and weights and measures
  • Grasp geometry and graphs — polygon basics, quadrilaterals, triangles, circles, and points and lines on xy-graphs
  • Get started with algebra — evaluate, simplify, and factor expressions (including FOILing), and solve equations by isolating x
