Too often we give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Our progress as a nation can be no swifter than our progress in education.
I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand.
It will be a great day when our schools get all the money they need and the Air Force has to hold a bake sale to buy a bomber.
Education is our passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to the people who prepare for it today.
I am always doing that which I cannot do, in order that I may learn how to do it.
Man's mind stretched to a new idea never goes back to its original dimensions.
Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself.
The books that help you the most are those which make you think the most.
Education's purpose is to replace an empty mind with an open one.
An educational system isn't worth a great deal if it teaches young people how to make a living but doesn't teach them how to make a life.
It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.
The pupil who is never required to do what he cannot do, never does what he can do.
A teacher is one who makes himself progressively unnecessary.
The object of education is to prepare the young to educate themselves throughout their lives.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
The Essentials of High School Math
The Essentials of High School Math
Covering The Basics That ALL High School Students Should Know

The Essentials of High School Math was designed to help students learn the basics of mathematics that they are supposed to understand upon entering high school, as well as the fundamental lessons within Algebra, Geometry, and Statistics that students typically learn in ninth and tenth grade. It is specifically intended for students identified as possibly having trouble on an upcoming state-mandated math exam, or for those who have already failed such an exam and must re-take it.

The book was created to include everything a student needs to study, practice, and learn the material that any high school student should know. It contains almost 1,000 problems for students to practice, and the lessons themselves contain about 100 questions from actual state exams that are thoroughly explained, along with hundreds of other examples. Each lesson is designed to cover one topic only so that students may learn and thoroughly understand that topic.

Whether with the help of a teacher, tutor, parent, or even alone, any student should be able to read through a lesson and have a good understanding of it. The Essentials of High School Math is recommended for any student that needs help with math.
