DeVenney, William S.; And Others
This text is one of the sequence of textbooks produced for low achievers in the seventh and eighth grades by the School Mathematics Study Group (SMSG). There are eight texts in the sequence, of which this is the last. This set of volumes differs from the regular editions of SMSG junior high school texts in that very little reading is required. Concepts and processes are illustrated pictorially, and many exercises are included. This volume continues the study of equations begun in chapter 8, and develops methods for solving linear inequalities and quadratic equations. In the last chapter the slope-intercept form of a linear equation is discussed, and the method of solution of simultaneous linear equations is detailed. Equations of parallel and perpendicular pairs of lines are examined. The concepts of absolute value and distance are introduced, and the method of computing the distance between two points in a plane is described. (SD)
