A long-time math teacher, Cook (algebra and geometry, Moravian Academy, Bethlehem, Pennsylvania) has broken down the introduction to algebra into 24 lessons that should take about an hour each to work through. She has kept the mathematics simple--most of the answers are whole numbers, and most of the calculations can be done in the head or with pencil and paper--because the point is learning the processes not practicing arithmetic. The overall themes are the language of algebra, solving equations, all about polynomials, fundamentals of fractions, systems of linear equations, and quadratic equations.
