Pre-Algebra & Algebra 1 is the first real taste of high school–level math (even when it’s taken in middle school), and for many kids it’s like, uh-oh, we’re not in Kansas anymore! But help is here from the Big Fat Notebooks, the series that has single-handedly changed the study guide landscape for middle and high school kids.
In the invaluable Big Fat Notebook way—where critical ideas are broken down and clearly explained, diagrams and doodles illuminate key concepts, mnemonics provide valuable shortcuts, and strategic quizzes give the material another way to sink in—Pre-Algebra & Algebra 1 covers it all: from the number system to solving and graphing quadratic equations. Math is the bestselling Big Fat Notebook with more than 1.6 million copies in print; Pre-Algebra & Algebra 1 is the natural next book. It reinforces the pre-algebra concepts presented in Math and goes on to cover critical level 1 algebra subject matter. Pre-Algebra & Algebra 1 is a subject that precocious eighth graders take before entering high school; this book can help those students on their accelerated track.
