Math On File(TM): Algebra is an invaluable resource to supplement classroom instruction in a core area of the mathematics curriculum-algebra. The volume provides approximately 50 engaging problem sets, ranging from simple to challenging, that are appropriate for group work in class or individual out-of-class assignments. Covers a Wide Range of Levels and Topics Designed to support NCTM (National Council of Teachers of Mathematics) standards, this accessible volume emphasizes the systemic development of algebra skills. Opening the volume are a general introduction and an instructions for teachers section. All exercises include an introduction, as well as text and diagrams that fully articulate the ideas, and they span elementary beginning algebra to precalculus topics and modern mathematics. Subjects range from arithmetic series, balancing equations, and developing empirical laws to algebraic inequalities and interval notation, math games with numbers, statistics in practice, and parabolic motion. The exercises are all reproducible and easy to distribute for classroom use. Sections include: Basic Number Manipulations Basic Algebraic Manipulations Functions Graphing Patterns Data.
