"A plane leaves New York going 400 m.p.h. Another plane leaves Los Angeles going 350 m.p.h...Yikes! Those dreaded word problems have instilled math phobia in generations of students. Now, The Math Dude is here to take the agony out of algebra. In The Math Dude's Quick and Dirty Guide to Algebra, Jason Marshall, host of the top ranked Math Dude podcast, kicks things off with a short, basic-training course to review simple math principles you'll need to get started. Once you've mastered the key concepts, you'll be ready to move on to the main event: understanding algebra. Whether discussing polynomials or giving step-by-step instruction on how to use order of operations to solve equations, Jason's clear, easy to- follow explanations and relevant, real-world examples will have even the most math-averse student basking in an a-ha moment. The book is also loaded with test-taking tips, quick and dirty math memory tricks, and advice for avoiding common mistakes that will help the lessons stick for years (and tests) to come. The bottom line is this: Algebra is the basic math that underlies most of everyday life. The Math Dude connects the dots and shows you that you already know a lot more than you think"--Provided by publisher.
