Thank you so much to everyone who has been giving feedback on the workbook. The success of this project would never be possible without the endless feedback from all you math-loving people.
One of the biggest requests I have been receiving however is that people would like more review on solving quadratic equations. I thought that this was a great idea, as solving quadratics is essential to SAT success
