When the numbers just don’t add up …

Following in the footsteps of the successful The Humongous Books of Calculus Problems, bestselling author Michael Kelley has taken a typical algebra workbook and made notes in the margins, adding missing steps and simplifying concepts and solutions. Students will learn how to interpret and solve problems as they are typically presented in algebra courses—and become prepared to solve those problems that were never discussed in class but always seem to find their way onto exams. Annotations throughout the text clarify each problem and fill in missing steps needed to reach the solution, making this book like no other algebra workbook out there.
W. Michael Kelley is a former award-winning calculus teacher and the author of six math books, including The Complete Idiot's Guide to Algebra, Second Edition, and The Humongous Book of Calculus Problems. Kelley received an award from the Maryland Council of Teachers of Mathematics recognizing him as an Outstanding High School Mathematics Teacher and four-years-running title of Most Popular Teacher in his home school. Kelley is also the founder and editor of calculus-help.com. View titles by W. Michael Kelley
