If you want to learn how to solve algebra problems faster with less effort, then get How To Do Algebra. In this step-by-step guide, you will discover tips, techniques, and strategies on how to become better at algebra from an algebra teacher's perspective.
Whether you are a student struggling to fulfill a math or science requirement, or you are embarking on a career change that requires a higher level of math competency, A Mind for Numbers offers the tools you need to get a better grasp of that intimidating but inescapable field. Engineering professor Barbara Oakley knows firsthand how it feels to struggle with math. She flunked her way through high school math and science courses, before enlisting in the army immediately after graduation.
Were it not for the calculus, mathematicians would have no way to describe the acceleration of a motorcycle or the effect of gravity on thrown balls and distant planets, or to prove that a man could cross a room and eventually touch the opposite wall. Just how calculus makes these things possible and in doing so finds a correspondence between real numbers and the real world is the subject of this dazzling book by a writer of extraordinary clarity and stylistic brio.
Under mathematics come a number of different branches, of which one is algebra. You need to learn mathematics from all aspects to order to shine in your field of practice. Let's say you want to become an engineer, actuary, or an architect maybe? You need to have a tight grip on math for which you need to learn algebra like the back of your hand.
You're wasting time listening to the standard advice about learning math. You can't continue with "random acts of learning" as you study simple math, calculus and statistics formulas - at least not for long. The truth is that learning math and remembering numbers can be incredibly simple. You just need to know how.
Math is not only the game of numbers but also the language of nature. As a matter of fact, it has been established through research that the more we understand our universe, the more we discover interesting mathematical connections. For instance, flowers have spirals that are carefully lined up in a special sequence of numbers commonly referred to as Fibonacci numbers. This sequence can be studied, understood, and generated.

In this master's thesis, Dr. Lisa A. Johnson Q.M.E. examines the impact of three reasoning skills -- number sense, structure sense, and abstract reasoning -- on algebra and geometry. The study concentrates its efforts on data compiled from more than twenty researchers in this area, an extensive annotated bibliography, and work done at fictitiously named Union High School, real school classes consisting of 48 math students and eight math teachers.
Principles of statistics are the basics of economics. Most of the time, people find such courses very boring and difficult. In fact statistics is really a boring thing. In this book you will hear that the whole course is detailed in an easy-to-understand way. While having a cup of tea, study it and get to know all about the principles of statistics. In simple words, it is a complete course that will help you in understanding the principles of statistics.
Bertrand Russell wrote that mathematics can exalt "as surely as poetry". This is especially true of one equation: ei(pi) + 1 = 0, the brainchild of Leonhard Euler, the Mozart of mathematics. More than two centuries after Euler's death, it is still regarded as a conceptual diamond of unsurpassed beauty. Called Euler's identity, or God's equation, it includes just five numbers but represents an astonishing revelation of hidden connections.
Through Euclid's Window Leonard Mlodinow brilliantly and delightfully leads us on a journey through five revolutions in geometry, from the Greek concept of parallel lines to the latest notions of hyperspace. Here is an altogether new, refreshing, alternative history of math revealing how simple questions anyone might ask about space -- in the living room or in some other galaxy -- have been the hidden engine of the highest achievements in science and technology.
Almost all of the academic disciplines and professions require a certain level of skill in using and comprehending at least the basis of statistics and the procedures it implies. The aim of this guide is to help you master these skills and offer you an insight of the statistical concepts in order to be able to apply them, thus enabling you to better grasp opportunities in life.

Ripples in Spacetime is an engaging account of the international effort to complete Einstein's project, capture his elusive ripples, and launch an era of gravitational-wave astronomy that promises to explain, more vividly than ever before, our universe's structure and origin. The quest for gravitational waves involved years of risky research and many personal and professional struggles that threatened to derail one of the world's largest scientific endeavors.
"It doesn't take an Einstein to understand modern physics," says Professor Wolfson at the outset of these 24 lectures on what may be the most important subjects in the universe: relativity and quantum physics. Both have reputations for complexity. But the basic ideas behind them are, in fact, simple and comprehensible by anyone. These dynamic and illuminating lectures begin with a brief overview of theories of physical reality starting with Aristotle and culminating in Newtonian or "classical" physics.

The theorems of the propositional calculus and the predicate calculus are stated, and the analogous principles of Boolean Algebra are identified. Also, the primary principles of modal logic are stated, and a procedure is described for identifying their Boolean analogues.
If you're looking to enter medical school in the United States, you'll almost certainly need a good, recent score in the standard MCAT. Nearly 50% of all MCAT test takers sit for the MCAT a second time due to inadequate preparation. Statistically, students who do well spend up to 300 hours preparing for the exam. It is our goal to make this process easier and more affordable than ever before.
What do all those lines and squiggles and dots mean? Basic Music Theory takes you through the sometimes confusing world of written music with a clear, concise style that is at times funny and always friendly. The book is written by an experienced music teacher using methods refined over more than 30 years in schools and in his private teaching studio. Lessons are fun, well-paced, and enjoyable.
Is there anything you would change about this book?
For the price, it is great. It might should be longer or more in depth but then it would cost more.
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
It is a little dry but there are not many math books on here as of now.
What three words best describe James Powers’s voice?
Straight-forward, easy, fast.
Do you think Algebra, Trigonometry, and Statistics needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
Sure, hopefully as cheap again.
Any additional comments?
It seems to be the perfect book to throw on when I cannot decide which book to do next. I do not really care if I absorb it through each time; repeated usage will do the trick. Quick and painless but overall helpful.

What would have made Algebra, Trigonometry, and Statistics better?
to not talk through problems like one should already know or understand it.
If one did already understand, to talk through each step.
A narrator with more energy, less boring voice. Sounds like he is dying

You are purchasing someone reading formulae. If that is what you want, you will get your money's worth here. If not, just keep moving and don't get sucked in by the low price.
