1) THE BIG FAT NOTEBOOK HIGH SCHOOL SERIES CONTINUES: The fourth book in the Big Fat Notebook high school series, Pre-Algebra/Algebra 1 continues the math presented in the best-selling Everything You Need to Ace Math in One Big Fat Notebook. Some students take this course in 8th grade, and many take it their first year of high school; for many students, it's their first exposure to high school-level math. Therefore this book is both a natural next-book for those who loved BFN MATH for middle school, and an essential reference for students (and parents!) facing a difficult course that "matters" for a high school transcript 

2) EVERYTHING A STUDENT NEEDS TO KNOW: Covering pre-algebra skills like operations with rational numbers, solving compound inequalities, and applying functions and introducing algebraic concepts like factoring polynomials, and solving and graphing quadratic equations. 

3) AN ESSENTIAL, AND EVEN FUN, COMPANION TO MATH CLASS: Instruction is presented in the same accessible way that kids loved with the middle school series. Diagrams, doodles, easy to understand explanations, and mnemonic devices are used to bring key concepts to life. End of chapter quizzes help students to assess their understanding.
