Too many students end their study of mathematics before ever taking an algebra course. Others attempt to study algebra, but are unprepared and cannot keep up. "Key to Algebra" was developed with the belief that anyone can learn basic algebra if the subject is presented in a friendly, non-threatening manner and someone is available to help when needed. Some teachers find that their students benefit by working through these books before enrolling in a regular algebra course--thus greatly enhancing their chances of success. Others use "Key to Algebra" as the basic text for an individualized algebra course, while still others use it as a supplement to their regular hardbound text. Allow students to work at their own pace. The "Key to Algebra" books are informal and self-directing. The authors suggest that you allow the student to proceed at his or her own pace. Book 1 covers Operations on Integers.

easy to follow5 Stars Out Of 5unintimidating algebra!April 20, 2016easy to followQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Step by step, ease your way into algebra without confusion or the stress of a poorly laid out page. This book starts at the beginning and works gently into algebra so kids who think math is easy and kids who are intimidated by math can both enjoy the process of learning algebra. We have one of each, so it was a blessing to find it!
Jophia2ArizonaAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5We love itDecember 31, 2011Jophia2ArizonaAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5We really like the Key to Mathematics series. We've used all of the topics except the geometry. These affordable books are just as effective as the pricier programs. The main difference is that each book covers ONE topic. There's no 'spiral' review built in, however, each topic builds on the last.
We love that the student can work independently, and that it encourages a true understanding of math with small steps and lots of simple line drawings. These books are black and white, and each individual book is short and not overwhelming.
I would recommend the algebra series:
-as an intro for advanced younger students,
-as a complete course for math-challenged kids who don't need a rigorous program for college, or
-as a review/explanation for kids who are stuck on a specific topic (ie trinomials). The individual books make it easy to get exactly what you need.

Working on approximately 3 pages per day, she is perfecting this area, and enjoys it.
Lisa Perdue5 Stars Out Of 5February 19, 2010Lisa PerdueI have never had Algebra. This breaks it down so I can understand it and learn how. Then able to teach my child.
Brandy D.5 Stars Out Of 5December 10, 2009Brandy D.This is a great book especially for those who have trouble learning math. My son was having difficulty in Algebra I so I decided to take a change on the "Key to Algebra" books. I bought only the first 4, plus the answer book, and the test book. He is now at the end of the first book. This book has been a blessing. He is finding Algebra a lot easier now and I am finding out where his trouble spots are. The book is written in a relaxed manner that i think is inviting and not intimidating to children. I would highly recommend this book set.
