Math Girls Talk about Equations & Graphs

Description

From the author of Math Girls comes an exciting new series for learning and reviewing important skills for taking on advanced mathematics! This first volume, Math Girls Talk About Equations and Graphs, develops topics such as using variables in equations, polynomials, setting up systems of equations, proportions and inverse proportions, the relation between equations and their graphs, parabolas, intersections, and tangent lines. These topics are introduced through conversations between the characters from Math Girls, offering a fun way to learn this serious content. Each chapter comes with review problems and answers, and an appendix gives more challenging, open-ended problems for learners wanting to push the limits of their understanding. This book is most suited to middle- or high-school students who have learned basic algebra, or older readers who want to brush up on forgotten math skills. This series came about through requests from readers who enjoyed the excitement of learning aspects of the Math Girls series, but found themselves unprepared to keep up with the mathematical content. We hope that the books in this series will help young mathematicians firm up vital math skills that will allow them to excel in more advanced studies.
