Despite the publication of hundreds of textbooks in this field, each one intended to provide an improvement over previous textbooks, students of algebra and trigonometry continue to remain perplexed as a result of numerous subject areas that must be remembered and correlated when solving problems. Various interpretations of algebra and trigonometry terms also contribute to the difficulties of mastering the subject. In a study of algebra and trigonometry, REA found the following basic reasons underlying the inherent difficulties of both math subjects: No systematic rules of analysis were ever developed to follow in a step-by-step manner to solve typically encountered problems. This results from numerous different conditions and principles involved in a problem that leads to many possible different solution methods. To prescribe a set of rules for each of the possible variations would involve an enormous number of additional steps, making this task more burdensome than solving the problem directly due to the expectation of much trial and error. Current textbooks normally explain a given principle in a few pages written by a mathematics professional who has insight into the subject matter not shared by others. These explanations are often written in an abstrTABLE OF CONTENTS Introduction Chapter 1: Fundamental Algebraic Laws and Operations Chapter 2: Least Common Multiple / Greatest Common Divisor Chapter 3: Sets and Subsets Chapter 4: Absolute Values Chapter 5: Operations with Fractions ...
