Algebra Helps

I did well in algebra in high school and college, but it has been many years since I've worked any algebra problems! I picked up Painless Algebra (Barron's Painless Series)(for me) at the library which covers very basic algebra, but does not pass into the more complex covered in an Algebra II class such as algebraic fractions. My son is working on these now through Christian Light Education grade nine mathematics. So I ordered a few highly rated advanced algebra books off Amazon.com. There are so many wonderful self teach books nowadays. I wish they had been published when I was younger!

So here is what I ordered which includes help with those nasty algebraic fractions which is covered in ninth grade Christian Light Education beginning Algebra. It's covered again in the eleventh grade Algebra. I was surprised to see this in ninth grade. We'll use these two as a review for me and as a cross reference for my son.

The Humongous Book of Algebra Problems: Translated for People Who Don't Speak Math

and

While I think I would have been able to homeschool without any problems, I would not have been able to teach math in any form!
