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.
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.
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.
Algebra, Trigonometry, and Statistics helps in explaining different theorems and formulas within the three branches of mathematics. Use this guide in helping one better understand the properties and rules within algebra, trigonometry, and statistics.
It’s true—you CAN do simple everyday math in your head, without a calculator! Improve your mental math skills in one week with just ten minutes of practice a day. Join The Math Dude, Jason Marshall, as he leads you through the tricky journey of mastering addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, AND percentages in your head. Whether you’re calculating the tip on a $76.85 meal or you’re frantically doing mental math in a business meeting—Math Dude has got you covered.
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.

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.
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.
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.

This is the original "Little Book," without add ons by later writers. This is a treasure to writers because it "omit(s)" needless words" and subject matter Professor Strunk did not believe was core to better writing. The brevity encourages relistening to deepen one's knowledge of the subject, the point made by Professor Strunk to his students: "the knowledge comes from rereading" or in our case, relistening. This unabridged version has 25 tracks: 1. Preface. 2. Introduction.

What did you like best about this story?
Good content about the rules and principles of Algebra.
Could you see How to Do Algebra being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?
No
Any additional comments?
This book would be great as a physical copy. The narrative sounds robotic and is not engaging at all. This could partly be due to the fact that this is a math book and it really requires you to see the equations and work out the operating. My advice would be to get this book in physical format.

I was looking for a book that would help me make algebra a little better manipulative. It does not really do that. It was a drone book with little to help make mastering algebra a given.
