Algebra is often taught in an abstract manner with little or no emphasis on what algebra is or how it can be used to solve real problems. Just as English can be translated into other languages, word problems can be "translated" into the math language of algebra and easily solved. Real World Algebra explains this process in an easy to understand format using cartoons and drawings. This makes self-learning easy for both the student and any teacher who never did quite understand algebra. Solutions included. Includes chapters on the language of algebra, geometry and algebra, proportions and algebra, physics, levers, the Pythagorean Theorem, percents and algebra, simultaneous equations, and algebra and money.--publisher's website.
