This is not just another algebra book. An entire website supports and extends this text. 400+ web exercises: unlimited, randomly-generated practice and worksheets. The book and website each stand alone as a learning environment; together, they're a dynamic duo. Visit http://www.onemathematicalcat.org and go to Algebra I: then Geometry, Algebra II, Precalculus, and Calculus.
While you're learning algebra, you'll also learn that numbers have lots of different names, and that math is the renaming tool. You'll learn that "x" is to math as "cat" is to English. The original "cat" book (One Mathematical Cat, Please! Ideas for anyone who wants to understand mathematics) is also available on Amazon. If you only need the math language ideas, get the original "cat" book. If you need Algebra too, get this book. The Algebra book has the original cat book embedded in it, so you don't need both!
