A solid understanding of algebra is the key to unlocking other areas of math and science that rely on the concepts and skills that happen in a foundational Algebra class. Algebra I All-In-One For Dummies is the key! With it, you'll get everything you need to solve the mystery of Algebra I.

This book proves that algebra is for everyone with straightforward, unit-based instruction, hundreds of examples and practice problems, and two quizzes for every chapter - one in the book and another (totally different!) online. From graph and word problems to the FOIL method and common algebra terminology, Algebra I All-In-One For Dummies walks you step-by-step through ALL the concepts you need to know to slay your Algebra I class.

In this handy guide, you'll also:
* Receive instruction and tips on how to handle basic and intermediate algebraic tasks such as factoring and equation simplification
* Banish math anxiety forever by developing an intuitive understanding of how algebra works
* Get a handle on graphing problems and functions, as well as inequalities and word problems

Algebra I All-In-One For Dummies is a must-read for Algebra students looking for an everything-in-one-book supplement to their coursework, as well as anyone hoping to brush up on their math before tackling a related subject, such as physics, chemistry, or a more advanced math topic.
