    The story format really helps a lot of the concepts to feel more engaging. A lot of aspects of algebra are broken down in a way that feels easy to understand. Great for anyone thats learning in school or wants a refresher.

    Algebra, variables, equations, distributive property, two-step equations, fractions, linear functions, exponents, polynomials, quadratic equations, probability, absolute value… Are these all terms that make you want to run away and scream?

    So many kids in school struggle through having to learn Algebra and it often becomes a valley of tears. This book could be the solution for your child. It tells the story of Mia, Leo and Priya who attend Numeria High. They go to school and have adventures with their math teacher Mr. Euler.

    In each chapter, they have an adventure that illustrates a certain subject of Algebra, and they learn together through discussion how to solve the problem. At the end of each chapter, there is a summary of the theory and some exercises.

    Not only a great help for kids, but parents who need to help their child could benefit from a sneak read of this book before sitting down to help with homework.

    The beginning of this book emphasizes the importance of reading, re-reading, and reflecting. Personally, I found myself pausing to ensure I grasped the practical applications at the end of each chapter. Despite having studied Algebra years ago, I was surprised by how much I had forgotten, realizing I would need to review quite a bit. As a grandparent now, I thoroughly enjoyed the book’s approach to math, which introduced an imaginary land called “Equationopolis” and an imaginative teacher named Mr. Euler.

    The book follows the journey of three intelligent kids, Mia, Leo, and Priya, who enthusiastically explore various algebraic applications. It presents math in a fun and engaging way, making it appealing for young learners. Each chapter includes Practice Problems with practical applications and explanations of the equations and reasoning. I believe this book would be an excellent supplement to the math education of 8th or 9th graders, and it could be particularly valuable for homeschoolers seeking a creative and interactive approach to algebra.

    This book is a great tool for helping to learn algebra. It breaks the space down into different areas and presents each one in a fun and imaginative way. Each chapter has an engaging story and summarizes the key points and provides sample problems and explains the solutions. The problems often present a great context for the student to see how to use the aspect of algebra in life. As a former teacher, I find this book to be a wonderful resource to guide all students whether math is natural to them or not.

    A genuinely innovative approach to maths, I have never really seen this before. And the stories are not lazy, they’re actually quite well written. The exercises at the end are a great way to end each chapter. Will buy the next book for my brother too. Kudos!
