The Simple Truth about Algebra
The truth is that the writers of algebra textbooks want to convince you how clever they are. They make the subject long and arduous, and the result is that children are confused and don't do well. This book, 'The Simple Truth About Algebra, ' focuses on the exact principle of what algebra is. In the first chapter, page 15, you will learn the ONLY three things you need to know to solve ALL algebra problems. On the next page you will learn the ONLY two questions you need to know to teach anybody basic algebra. Teaching becomes the simple process of the child (or you) going through the book, with ONLY two instructions. Mind you, I have NEVER seen these two things, the only three things you need to know to solve Algebra and the only two things you need to know how to teach algebra, anywhere. Not in any book, not uttered by any math teacher anywhere. The whole of basic algebra is laid out here. Understanding this basic algebra you (or the child) will become capable of understanding advanced courses in algebra for the simple reason that the basics are understood. This is not a book of esoteric postulate and theorem, but only the simple and exact instructions on how to do the subject. At the end of this algebra book is the bonus essay 'How to Fly to the Moon.' This essay explains ALL mathematics in simple words, and forever puts an end to that question all kids use to distract a teacher: 'Why do we have to do math?' I tested this book on my students at a private school All were able to do it in a couple of weeks. The record was one week by an 11 year old. Algebra is THAT simple. And if you insist on trying to figure it out with those thick tomes packed with endless theories and what ifs, then you WILL be confused.

He is the author of nearly 50 books on Amazon. He taught at private schools for a number of years, before owning his own private school He is a die hard advocate of Home Schooling.
