9780962781575: Algebra Unplugged

A lighthearted, sometimes irreverent introduction to the concepts, vocabulary and strategies of first year algebra. Designed for people who learn best by reading, it includes no exercises. Beginning with some pre algebra concepts, like working with fractions, it explains linear equations, quadratic equations and graphing in easy to understand, non frightening language. Ideal for people who think they hate math to read before they take the class or as a supplement during it. It provides an additional explanation to the confused and comfort for the fearful. For nearly twenty years this book has been helping math-phobes survive their most dreaded class.

From the Back Cover:

"If you or anyone you know is frightened by algebra, then this entertaining, simply written book is an excellent way to overcome that fear. I know of no more painless way to master the basic concepts of algebra. Let's hope the authors will take up the challenge of a similar book about calculus!" Martin Gardner, author of The Night is Large

"I loved it!" Sheila Tobias, author of Overcoming Math Anxiety

"Ever read an algebra book for fun? Ever thought you would want to? Algebra Unplugged is just that sort of book- and innovative approach that does a great job taking the mystery and fear out of algebra. It's not a text book. You don't have to ever lift a pencil while reading it. Fascinating explanations of all the players in a first year algebra course. A must for anyone who is going to take algebra, dreaded it while taking it, or wants to brush up on it." Theoni Pappas, author of The Joy of Mathematics

"Algebra Unplugged is geared for the majority who are not good at math. Told with humor and understanding, it is an enjoyable book to read." Joan Harris, The Institute for Science and Society

"I very much enjoyed the book. A math book with lawyer jokes and stories of flogging tenors. It doesn't get any better than that." Thomas Seidenberg, Phillips Exeter Academy

"This book discusses algebra in a non-threatening, fun way." ERIC Clearinghouse for Science, Mathematics and Environmental Education.

About the Author:

Kenn Amdahl was born May 4, 1949 in Richmond California, grew up in Colorado, and married Cheryl, his high school sweetheart in 1970. They continue to be married with three grown sons who are the joy of their lives. They live in Broomfield, Colorado, between Denver and Boulder. Kenn is best known as the author of There Are No Electrons, Electronics for Earthlings. He is also the author of The Land of Debris and the Home of Alfredo. This strange little book was the first novel ever printed on 100% tree-free paper made from the kenaf plant. He's published dozens of poems and written many dozens of songs. He's also a licensed real estate broker, semi-professional guitarist and folk singer, serious gardener, less serious aquarist, and an enthusiastic but completely untalented painter.
