5th Edition Douglas Downing, Ph.D.  All books by this author Barron’s EZ Series  All books in this series Known for many years as Barron’s Easy Way Series, the new editions of these popular selfteaching titles are now Barron’s EZ Series. Brandnew cover designs reflect all new page layouts, which feature extensive twocolor treatment, a fresh, modern typeface, and more graphic material than ever— charts, graphs, diagrams, instructive line illustrations, and where appropriate, amusing cartoons. Meanwhile, the quality of the books’ contents remains at least as high as ever. Barron’s EZ books are selfhelp manuals focused to improve students’ grades in a wide variety of academic and practical subjects. For most subjects, the level of difficulty ranges between high school and college101 standards. Although primarily designed as selfteaching manuals, these books are also preferred by many teachers as classroom supplements—and for some courses, as main textbooks. EZ books review their subjects in detail, and feature both short quizzes and longer tests with answers to help students gauge their learning progress. Subject heads and key phrases are set in a second color as an easy reference aid. Topics covered in Barron’s EZ Algebra include general rules for dealing with numbers, equations, negative numbers and integers, fractions and rational numbers, exponents, roots and real numbers, algebraic expressions, functions, graphs, systems of two equations, quadratic equations, circles, ellipses, parabolas, polynomials, numerical series, permutations, combinations, the binomial formula, proofs by mathematical induction, exponential functions and logarithms, simultaneous equations and matrices, and imaginary numbers. Exercises follow each chapter with answers at the end of the book. . Table of Contents:
