Algebra and trigonometry textbook
An algebra book requires a different type of reading than a novel or a short story. Every sentence in a math book is full of information and logically linked to the surrounding sentences. You should read the sentences carefully and think about their meaning. As you read, remember that algebra builds upon itself; for example, the method of factoring that you'll study on page 188 will be useful to you on page 697. Be sure to read with a pencil in your hand: Do calculations, draw sketches, and take notes.
