Advanced Algebra: Expanded Edition is the second book in the Life of Fred High School Mathematics Series, and is designed for students in 10th grade who have already finished the preceding Beginning Algebra, Expanded Edition. This new edition of Algebra replaces the both the earlier Life of Fred Advanced Algebra and Fred's Home Companion Advanced Algebra books; it also contains all problems completely worked out. The sold-separately Zillions of Practice Problems for Advanced Algebra book is an optional resource for students who want more practice opportunities.
Ten chapters with multiple sub-lessons (105 total) are included. Each lesson ends with a "Your Turn to Play" segment with a small number of thought-provoking questions. Answers are provided on the next page for students to go over themselves after attempting to solve the problems. Chapters conclude with three problem sets, each of which is named after a city. This full-year curriculum will provide students with a thorough knowledge of Algebra II, and should be used directly after finishing Beginning Algebra. To ensure students are adequately prepared, a placement exam is provided at the beginning.
Advanced Algebra covers: Ratios, Median averages, Proportions, Dividing by zero, Cross-multiplying, Constants of proportionality, Inverse variation, Direct variation, Joint variation, Weight varies directly as the cube of the height, Area varies directly as the square of the height, Volume varies directly as the cube of the height, Laws of exponents, Rationalizing the denominator, Pythagorean theorem, Solving radical equations, Surface area of a cone, A Brief History of mathematics, Natural numbers, Whole numbers, Integers, Irrational numbers, Real numbers, and lots more.
Life of Fred is a unique, complete (not supplemental), math program that uses a highly engaging narrative to teach math without fear and with enjoyment. Students follow the life of Fred Gauss (a math professor who grows up to the age of six), who has many humorous, unlikely, and zany adventures over the course of the curriculum. Math becomes relevant and important because the need for math occurs in Fred's life (and he sees math everywhere). Witty and truly entertaining, these books will engage students in a way unlike any other math program - --while also instilling a solid understanding of the principles of mathematics without an abundance of repetitive drills. This series is perfect for inquisitive students who struggle with the relevance of math, or anyone looking for a creative approach to mathematic thinking!
544 pages, indexed; hardcover, non-consumable textbook with Smyth-sewn binding. Students write their answers on separate paper. Answers are also included in the text and written directly to the student.
