    I like the book, I’m in a not so good school and this book is great. And to find the answers, for those who need it, its on the check your understanding pages in the top left corners

    My school purchased this book for all of the Algebra I students. As the teacher, I see some aspects that need improvement. Students cannot zoom in on the pages, which is very difficult in the slope and graphing chapters. Also, the practice problems are not organized well. If you only cover examples 1 and 2 in class, then for homework you are assigning #1-5 and #15-20 for example. Also, if your school purchases the iBooks for students, there are no teacher editions or supplemental resources. Overall, the book just needs to be refined for practical use in the classroom.

    Great concept, but the book and supporting material are loaded with errors. Looks like they were in too big a hurry to get into the market again and forgot to check quality control. I looked at the chapter assessment for the sample edition and two of the first four questions were scored incorrectly. I am a high school math teacher and would not recommend this to my students due to the errors. Very disappointing:-(. They did the same thing with the first editions of their the hard copies of the Common Core Standards book.

    Junk. Just an ordinary text book with no access to an answer key. Do not waste your time here if you are trying to refresh or self educate. NOT WHAT YOU ARE LOOKING FOR!!!

    Impressive lay-out, no doubt. The content, more sobering: upon random checks of practice questions by my kids, it appears answers to question 23 (chapter 3), Q2 and Q15 (chapter 4) and Q18 (chapter 5) are incorrect. Who knows what else is wrong? The kids do not have much respect left for this ebook. Back to the good old standard textbook.
  • Good Imitation of An Ordinary Paper Text Book

    The iPad is capable of far, far more than just imitating the dry, static, old fashioned textbook that has been around for several centuries. I had hoped to see a teaching tool that permitted the student to solve problems interactively within the app and have it display the problem and the student's solution graphically. I had also hoped to see the app grade the student's work and provide constructive feedback instantly. Edit: I found such an interactive app: see "Algebra Touch" in the App Store. Less complete but far better at teaching problem solving. Waiting for version 2.

    I bought this book as a refresher in order to prepare for the GREs (I have been out of school for some time). While the graphics are nice and the book is very user friendly, I was very disappointed to find that there was no answer key in the back as with most other textbooks of this sort. Honestly, I am not al all encouraged to continue using it because I cannot gauge if I am doing the problems correctly.

    Being an older person, I purchased this book to help keep my brain active. I suppose the process of going through the material will do that without the ability to check right/wrong answers, but it would be nice to have them available. Had the iTunes review mentioned, or had I remembered from decades of being out of school, that textbooks do not usually include answers to questions, I probably would not have purchased this book.
