Description & Features

This is a one-year Algebra I course for Grades 7-9. Students who have a solid algebra background will have no trouble with the algebra problems from SAT and even the GRE.  This 384-page book highlights vocabulary and notation, and has examples from the history of math.

What makes this book unique and different from other algebra textbooks is that it is built from the experiences of an award-winning algebra teacher with more than 30 years of teaching experience. Many textbooks are written by a committee of authors, and many of those authors have little experience teaching beginning algebra students in middle school or high school.

Understanding Algebra I presents the most essential concepts and skills needed to fully understand and gain confidence in algebra in a step-by-step fashion, teaching students that algebra is generalized arithmetic. It helps students see the connection between mathematics that they already know and algebra, so that learning algebra becomes easier and less abstract. This book provides students with real strategies to succeed in solving word problems by using charts and translating strategies that guarantee success.
