Head First Algebra free pdf Looking for a fun way to learn - or to teach - algebra? In a way that works, "Head First Algebra" gives this subject a jolt of fresh air and may be a whiff of a caffeinated beverage. It's a complete algebra learning experience that engages readers fully by having them play games, solve puzzles, ponder mysteries, bake brownies, and even (gasp!) cut pages out of the book. This book loads algebra into a reader's brain in a way that will stick for good! Based on the latest research in neurobiology, cognitive science, and learning theory, "Head First Algebra" uses a visually rich format designed for the way the brain works. It combines words and pictures in a playful, mixed-media style that not only helps you understand a subject, but also to remember it. Readers experience the joy of math and learn (almost without noticing) everything they always wanted to know but were afraid to ask about natural numbers, exponents, graphs and graphing, monomials and polynomials, factoring, algebraic fractions, solving equations, the quadratic formula, and much more. In fact, it teaches everything the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (the organization that decides such things) says people need to know about algebra. With its extensive use of icons, pictures and even cartoons, this book appeals to the human characteristic we all share: we're visual creatures. The material engages learners on many different levels, stimulating their abilities in pattern matching and deduction, as well as activating auditory pathways, visual pathways and deeper thought. "Head First Algebra" is ideal for supplementing a textbook, helping a struggling learner, and refreshing those who are rusty on the subject. Discover the method that has made our "Head First book" series so successful!
