With Barron’s, learning algebra becomes fun. Painless Algebra defines algebraic terms, shows students how to avoid pitfalls in calculation, presents painless methods for understanding and graphing equations, and makes problem-solving fun.
Geared toward middle school– and high school–level learners, Painless Algebra takes a lighthearted, humorous approach to learning vocab and is ideal for students who find it confusing, or who just need a little extra help.
Students can test their learning progress with quizzes and “Brain Ticklers”, plus additional games online to challenge students, including Beat the Clock, a line match game, and a word scramble.
The authors' main goal is to clear up confusion and pique interest by emphasizing the intriguing and often exciting ways in which students can put each subject to practical use.
