Conquest Math Releases Workbook to Teach Everybody Algebra
Too many students just don't "get" algebra. Xs, Ys, negatives and negative negatives and graphs are just so confusing. This workbook (which can be used with or without another text) teaches algebra through graphing, relating it to real world ideas that make it relatively simple.
The book is available through www.lulu.com, available as Part 1, Part 2, or parts 1 and 2 combined. At the company's web site, www.conquestmath.com, there is a free demo of a series of lessons/games to learn Kindergarten math concepts.
Also available from Conquest Math are both a series of little programs to teach pre-algebra skills and another one to teach algebra skills. These are also free for trial for the 2009-2010 school year. Eventually, there will be lessons/games to teach math from the current Kinderten lessons/games all the way through algebra.
