Following on the success of the Algebra Survival Guide, the Algebra Survival Guide Workbook presents thousands of practice problems (and all answers) to help children master algebra. The problems are keyed to the pages of the Algebra Survival Guide, so that children can find detailed instructions and then work the sets. Each problem set focuses like a laser beam on a particular algebra skill, then offers ample practice problems. Answers are conveniently displayed in the back. This book is for parents of schooled students, homeschooling parents and teachers. Parents of schooled children find that the problems give their children a leg up for mastering all skills presented in the classroom. Homeschoolers use the Workbook - in conjunction with the Guide - as a complete Algebra 1 curriculum. Teachers use the workbook's problem sets to help children sharpen specific skills - or they can use the pages as tests or quizzes on specific topics. Like the Algebra Survival Guide, the Workbook is adorned with beautiful art and sports a stylish, teen-friendly design.

Practical Algebra If you studied algebra years ago and now need a refresher course in order to use algebraic principles on the job, or if you're a student who needs an introduction to the subject, here's the perfect book for you. Practical Algebra is an easy and fun-to-use workout program that quickly puts you in command of all the basic concepts and tools of algebra. With the aid of practical, real-life examples and applications, you'll learn: * The basic approach and application of algebra to problem solving * The number system (in a much broader way than you have known it from arithmetic) * Monomials and polynomials; factoring algebraic expressions; how to handle algebraic fractions; exponents, roots, and radicals; linear and fractional equations * Functions and graphs; quadratic equations; inequalities; ratio, proportion, and variation; how to solve word problems, and more Authors Peter Selby and Steve Slavin emphasize practical algebra throughout by providing you with techniques for solving problems in a wide range of disciplines--from engineering, biology, chemistry, and the physical sciences, to psychology and even sociology and business administration. Step by step, Practical Algebra shows you how to solve algebraic problems in each of these areas, then allows you to tackle similar problems on your own, at your own pace. Self-tests are provided at the end of each chapter so you can measure your mastery.

"Every healthcare system in the United States should master the ideas in this book and practice them every day. If they did, we would see a revolutionary improvement in medical care outcomes and massive cost reductions." - Paul O'Neill, 72nd Secretary of the U.S. Treasury Beyond Heroes explains how the ThedaCare Health System, based in Northeast Wisconsin, transformed their culture by redesigning their system of daily management. Hospitals have long relied on heroics to save the day - on one brilliant nurse or physician to fix the problem at hand. The result is a lot of people rowing in opposite directions, putting safety and quality at risk while increasing costs. This is the story of an organization breaking that habit. Beyond Heroes shows the reader, step by step, how ThedaCare teams developed their management system, using the stories of its doctors, nurses and administrators to illustrate. The book explores each of the eight essential components of the lean system: Team Huddles Managing to Established Standards Problem Solving Transparency Advisory Teams Scorecards Standard Work for Leaders Physician's role in a Business Performance System What you will learn about a lean management system: Create and sustain a system of continuous improvement aligned with strategic goals Cascade information effectively throughout the organization Implement a system where employee coaching and mentoring can occur on a daily basis Build standard work for executives in gemba to support daily continuous improvement Beyond Heroes is a practical and helpful guide for all leaders in healthcare. It fills a wide gap in the lean literature, and offers applicable steps for leaders no matter where they are in their improvement journey. - Maureen Bisognano, President and CEO of the Institute for Healthcare Improvement To promote the book, the ThedaCare Center for Healthcare Value has engaged the services of Dennis Welch of Articulate, to reach out to all majo
