To help students succeed in learning math at school or at home, Summit Math books start with simple, foundational concepts and build on those ideas in small steps. Written by a math teacher with 16+ years of classroom experience, this series is designed to help students learn at different paces.

Each book is split into 2 parts: 1) Guided Discovery Scenarios, and 2) Homework and Extra Practice Scenarios. The Guided Discovery Scenarios gradually develop new concepts, building on previously learned topics. The Homework and Extra Practice Scenarios improve your understanding and increase your ability to retain what you have learned.

Each part has a separate Answer Key, which is included to promote learning. When you finish each scenario, you can check the Answer Key to see if you are ready to move on or if you need more guidance.

Book description:
This book builds on what students learn in Algebra 1: Book 4. Students learn how to reverse the process of multiplying polynomials, which is known as factoring. They analyze factoring patterns that occur when a polynomial has a special structure like a difference of squares or a perfect square trinomial. They learn how to use factoring to solve quadratic equations and then they apply what they have learned as they solve a wide variety of scenarios that involve quadratic relationships. Near the end of the book, students are introduced to simplifying rational expressions, which they will study in more depth in Algebra 2: Book 4. They also learn about graphing parabolas, which they will study in more depth in Algebra 2: Book 3.
