One dimensional in its approach
on October 31, 2015
In comparison to pre-algebra books we have purchased in the past, this one is just okay. My daughter needed this for school; if we home schooled, I would have definitely picked a different book. The definitions are written clearly but some of the explanations, examples and word problems leave a bit to be desired. There seems to be a real push towards the idea that there is only one way to achieve the correct answer. Fortunately, I have a degree in math and have been able to work with her and show her there are many ways to approach a problem. Math is actually a flexible topic - it is a shame that this book takes a one dimensional approach.
