Great May 23, 2011
We are using this textbook for our homeschooling Algebra I class. The explanations are very clear and are presented in a logical sequence. Bittinger transitions students from skills-based math to the concepts-oriented math required for college courses, and supports students with quality applications and exercises to help them apply and retain their knowledge. I would always recommend looking for your school textbook online at ecampus before going to your own school bookstore. This way is much cheaper. It probably saved me around $50 or more just for this textbook.
