Great idea, needs more
I love the way the concepts are presented, visuals, tutor instruction, and examples do help with understanding. However, I bought the book as a refresher for math, not as a math student. So for me, I need access to answers to be sure that I am doing the problems correctly. Maybe two versions? One for students who have a teacher, and another for those of us working on our own. Or maybe an extension that has answers for teachers and self learners.
I'm stunned! This is absolutely incredible!
When I went to high school in a small rural Texas town in the 1970's, I hated algebra (and math in general), mainly because I struggled to understand the dry assignments and cryptic examples given in the worn textbook. I shunned anything to do with math after that and never really learned algebra. If I'd had something like this though, I can't help but think how different things could have turned out.
Well done Apple and McGraw Hill. We'll surely look back on this day as the start of an education revolution.
Being an older person, I purchased this book to help keep my brain active. I suppose the process of going through the material will do that without the ability to check right/wrong answers, but it would be nice to have them available. Had the iTunes review mentioned, or had I remembered from decades of being out of school, that textbooks do not usually include answers to questions, I probably would not have purchased this book.
