Concepts addressed in Solving for X: PreAlgebra, Volume 1:
Infinite Fractions  Is that Rachael Ray? Martha Stewart? Good Heavens, it’s Bill Nye, cooking up some fractions. We’ll start out in the kitchen but end up in the Otherworldly Zone where an infinite amount of fractions hide out between one and zero.
Exponents  They’re elegant, simple and pretty to look at  Bill takes the Schoolhouse Rock approach and sings “Exponentiality,” a catchy tune celebrating the poetry that awaits us whenever we use the algebraic shorthand known as Exponents.
Signed Numbers  Bill’s idea of taking us ‘Over The Rainbow” is actually a journey through the Barrier of Zero, where we’ll behold the negative numbers on the other side! But we’ll breathe easier once we see how a number’s negative or positive sign simply tells us in which direction we’ve traveled away from zero.
Proportional Reasoning  Bill makes the scene, using proportional reasoning to size up the famous Hollywood sign, which he figures is sure to make him the toast of Tinseltown.

Concepts addressed in Solving for X: Algebra I, Volume 1:
Variables  She called herself “Y.” Tearyeyed, one evening she appeared unannounced at his office, asking Detective Nye to uncover the true identity of “X” – who like her, was clearly another unknown. One thing was for sure: X and Y were variables.
Balancing Equations  Bill ponders the sweetness of balancing equations. But no matter how many cupcakes are actually hiding in each of those boxes, you know he’s still gonna want . . . just . . . one . . . more.
Dimensional Analysis  Bill hits the road to show us how we can zip through algebraic questions involving things like speed, distance and time, just by putting those units of measurement to work. How far is it to Grandma’s house anyway? I’m ready for lunch.
Linear Equations  Bill takes us on a Bowling field trip to fire some linear functions down the alley. Constant rates of change and fun for the whole family!
