Arithmetic deals with operations using numbers, but algebra is needed to thoroughly understand the concept of number, which is vital in our society.
The natural sequel to the author's previous book Anyone Can Do Arithmetic, Anyone Can Do Algebra aims to promote genuine understanding of one of the most important foundation stones of Mathematics.
Within his book, Brian Fletcher deals with the fundamental aspects of algebra in order to combat the common misconception that algebra is too difficult.
Focusing on how these algebraic rules can be applied, topics range from quadratic equations and powers of numbers, to graphs and how they provide an alternative method of solving any equation.
Through the examination of such topics, Anyone Can Do Algebra can provide a full and proper understanding of an important mathematic concept.
Unlike other algebra based books, this book focuses on the steady build up of understanding to provide a more solid foundation, rather than simply learning and repeating rules.
This book will appeal to those who have previously struggled with maths, in particular algebra, and wish to improve their understanding of a vital aspect of learning.
