Story
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.

Story
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.

Publisher's Summary
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 20 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. Through the efforts of this study, Dr. Johnson determined that algebra relies on abstract reasoning and structure sense, while geometry does not. Moreover, Dr. Johnson observed that further instruction needs to be given to teachers on communicating the three reasoning skills, as the teachers studied were not sufficiently knowledgeable in these areas. With teacher improvements, students in nonsufficient school systems could better excel in mathematics.
Dr. Johnson holds two bachelors in sciences; three master's degrees, one of which is in Math Education Curriculum, and a doctorate degree. She attributes her success to her parents and sisters. This is her second publication.
