Algebra II by Chris Monahan

I love maths and reading about it, teaching it and using it in my work as a lecturer and business owner.

The book

This is a continuation from the book Algebra I and deals with some of the more involved sections in Algebra. This book is part of McGraw Hills 'Practice makes Perfect' series which is very good and well priced.

Structure

The book is structured that the reader can just do a single Algebra topic or follow it as a course. There is plenty here with lots of worked examples and explanations accompanied by exercises with answers.

Coverage.

The book covers enough to get a really good grounding and will be useful to any GCSE student or adult returning to education who may be a b it rusty with Algebra.

Read book one first.

As this is a follow on volume from book one the lessons and techniques learned in book one are assumed here. I would advise anyone not sure about their Algebra skills getting book one first and then this one if needed.
If your maths is really rusty or just bad I would recommend the `Basic Math' book in this series by Carolyn Wheater. This book really fills in on the basics and makers tackling books like this much easier as it under pins the basic knowledge of number that is really needed for algebra (I have had 30 years of Algebra experience and know what's needed!).

Overall.

This is a good introduction to the more technical and challenging techniques used in Algebra. The book is well written and comes highly recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting and clear, but a bit too American 24 Dec 2013
By Sue Bentley VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This book is good for an adult returning to education, or for someone who wants to keep their mind active and learn something new. It is well laid out and packed full of tests and problems to solve using algebra.

You need to have done the first book, or have a solid grounding in the basics of algebra before you tackle this one. However the flow of the book will pull you along from topic to topic until you realise you are into some quite advanced stuff!

The book is not suitable for a British A level student however, as it does not address a specific syllabus. It is also very American so people in the problems are eating candy bars, playing American football and spending dollars. That may seem a minor thing but it does alienate slightly

4.0 out of 5 stars Very smooth Mouth wash 21 Nov 2013
By GadgetDad VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I have nearly come to the end of using my first bottle of Ultradex recalifying and whitening oral rinse.

This product stands out from the Colgates and Listerine because the taste is particularly pleasant and smooth. I have very sensitive teeth and I have found this does not agitate them all./

I also note on the bottle it is Vegan friendly which may be of interest to some.

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful 10 Nov 2013
By Alison Towers VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Got this through Vine and very pleased I did. I am really enjoying working my way through this book. Its been many years since I studied Maths and always felt that I should know more. It's not always easy, but I've managed to plough my way even through areas that I have either completely forgotten, or never touched on before fairly adequately. Much more challenging than spending my time with Sudoku puzzles. I would recommend it to others with time on their hands as a way of exercising the little grey cells.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth dipping in to 17 Oct 2013
By Seren Ade HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I received this free through the Amazon Vine programme).

For my brother's purposes (he wanted a variety of Maths resources he can use as reference books) - this is a perfectly adequate book. It's well-written, clearly presented and provides a decent range of worked examples, in a range of topics that straddle G.C.S.E. and A Level topics... And more.

But for many, this is perhaps not the ideal resource: the book is written by an American author and is not aimed at any of the UK exam board's specific syllabus requirements.

Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is for the more advanced level student. Having perused a copy of Algebra 1, this is a logical continuation with a fair amount of worked details and worded questions. The latter actually makes this often esoteric subject useful in real life, something far more important than a textbook of equations. Of course the examples are of an American bent but I can see how American sports with its love of statistics (Moneyball anyone?)could lend itself here.

I enjoyed the refresher course and would recommend this and its prequel as an ancillary workbook on the side of the usual school textbook.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good book to support maths 29 Sep 2013
By Sue H TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is an excellent text useful for students (and parents) cover key mathematic topics. Explanations are given and worked examples. Topics include: functions, linear equations, quadratic relationships, complex numbers, polynomial functions, rational and irrational functions, exponential and logarithmic functions, sequences and series, probability, stats (briefly- this is a book topic in itself!) and trigonometry. It doesn't get 5 stars as its not specifically aimed at a UK market, so I don't know what would be GCSE level or A level.

4.0 out of 5 stars Perfection is still a long way off 12 Sep 2013
By D Deacon TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Most UK starter students would need to sit down and learn some new topics here. This is more A'level than O'level - as I recall it. The explanations are a bit thin on the ground but there's the WWW to assist. Algebra itself is not that difficult: it is the application of it which can be very difficult. There are lots of books in this sort of area. Cheaper than an OU course but then you don't get a certificate.

3.0 out of 5 stars Much harder than I anticipated
I got this as part of the review scheme amazon runs. It's too hard for my 9 year old though so I have only had a quick look and will bring it out at a later date.
