Anyone Can Do Algebra


Arithmetic deals with operations using numbers, but algebra is needed to thoroughly understand the concept of number, which is vital in our society. The natural sequel to the author’s previous book Anyone Can Do Arithmetic, Anyone Can Do Algebra aims to promote genuine understanding of one of the most important foundation stones of Mathematics. Within his book, Brian Fletcher deals with the fundamental aspects of algebra in order to combat the common misconception that algebra is too difficult. Focusing on how these algebraic rules can be applied, topics range from quadratic equations and powers of numbers, to graphs and how they provide an alternative method of solving any equation. Through the examination of such topics, Anyone Can Do Algebra can provide a full and proper understanding of an important mathematic concept. Unlike other algebra based books, this book focuses on the steady build up of understanding to provide a more solid foundation, rather than simply learning and repeating rules. This book will appeal to those who have previously struggled with maths, in particular algebra, and wish to improve their understanding of a vital aspect of learning.

Brian Fletcher

Brian Fletcher initially trained as a Research Physicist, eventually specializing in Vacuum Physics and the accurate measurement of extremely low pressures. Much of his work has been presented to International Scientific Conferences and published in Scientific Journals. Two new developments were the subject of British patents. After working for 18 years in this field he retrained as a Mathematics Teacher. He went on to teach all aspects of Pure and Applied Mathematics up to University entrance level in both State and Public schools. Brian has always believed that mathematical principles and concepts, at whatever level, should and can be taught in a way that excites and encourages students. All his pupils have benefited from this philosophy; many have gone on to achieve success way beyond their initial expectations.

During the 5 years leading up to retirement a further career shift involved teaching Information Technology to adults.

He is now living with his wife and dog in a small village in Wiltshire and is a Governor of the local primary school.
