|About the Book|
This book is for those students, parents and teachers facing the new Common Core Math curriculum. It contains hundreds of examples of word problems covering Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry and Trigonometry. The concepts underlying each problem are carefully explained and step by step solutions are given. Most topics involving standard functions that contain several variables will have examples showing how to solve a problem for each possible missing value. This book covers problems from the beginnings of age and integer problems found in Algebra 1 through proportions, direct and indirect variation, through modeling projectile motion. Financial equations from simple compound interest formulas to annuities are all covered in detail. In Geometry, areas, surface areas and volumes formulas are explained and solved. Trigonometry problems from simple triangular trigonometric problems through sinusoidals are extensively covered as well as vectors and work problems from Physics. Probability concepts from Algebra 1 through Pre-Calculus are explained from the concept of a sample space through binomial distributions.
