Publisher Comments:

The fun and easy way to prepare for more complex algebra

The percentage of high school graduates who have taken Algebra II has more than doubled in the last two decades. And now, with a greater emphasis on advanced algebra in standardized tests, the demand for advanced guidance is growing. Algebra II Workbook For Dummies provides students and teachers with fun, engaging, and effective ways to prepare for exams. Building on the concepts taught in basic algebra, this hands-on guide broadens students’ skill sets through exercises that take a closer look at advanced math such as quadratic equations; polynomial, exponential, and logarithmic functions; irrational and complex numbers; and graphing inequalities. Although the workbook functions independently, it can also be cross-referenced with Algebra II For Dummies.

Mary Jane Sterling (Peoria, IL) has more than 30 years’ experience as a teacher of higher mathematics. She is the author of Algebra For Dummies (0-7645-5325-9), Algebra Workbook For Dummies (0-7645-8467-7), and Algebra II For Dummies (0-471-77581-9).

Book News Annotation:

As a supplement to Algebra II for dummies, this workbook contains practice problems for solving equations and inequalities, graphing equations, formulating functions, and working with imaginary numbers, matrices, and sequences. The material and approach are pretty typical of the standard algebra textbook, but at a much lower price. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
