## Book description

*Algebra I Essentials For Dummies* (9781119590965) was previously published as *Algebra I Essentials For Dummies *(9780470618349). While this version features a new *Dummies* cover and design, the content is the same as the prior release and should not be considered a new or updated product.

With its use of multiple variables, functions, and formulas algebra can be confusing and overwhelming to learn and easy to forget. Perfect for students who need to review or reference critical concepts, *Algebra I Essentials For Dummies* provides content focused on key topics only, with discrete explanations of critical concepts taught in a typical Algebra I course, from functions and FOILs to quadratic and linear equations. This guide is also a perfect reference for parents who need to review critical algebra concepts as they help students with homework assignments, as well as for adult learners headed back into the classroom who just need a refresher of the core concepts.

**The Essentials For Dummies Series**

Dummies is proud to present our new series, *The Essentials For Dummies*.
