# Algebra I (CLE Math)

Offering an incremental, spiral approach, CLE Algebra offers a consistent systematic review to help students thoroughly learn the concepts. Topically, students learn absolute value, variables, ratios and percents, exponents, roots and radicals, polynomials, radicals, binomials, graphing, linear algebra, quadratic equations, probability and much more. You may choose one of two options for teaching this course: a full-color, hardcover** Textbook** or the reusable soft cover **Units**. The same scope of concepts is covered. The **Units** use the same methodology as the elementary Sunrise Math. Textbook lessons have been edited for clarity, and user friendliness. Text lessons use the same Sunrise review and an incremental approach to teaching. Each lesson begins with a new concept explanation and examples. Students then complete “Today’s lesson” problems to practice the new concept. Review problems from previous lessons follow. Small reference numbers are included to identify the lesson where the concept was previously taught. Lessons conclude with a few additional practice problems related to the new concept taught in the lesson. Lessons 5,10, and 16 of every unit are quiz and test lessons, and include an optional enrichment activity. Compared to the Unit lessons, the Textbook lessons are sequenced differently and are not interchangeable. Either option requires the purchase of separate tests and quizzes, answer keys and/or solutions. Necessary components for the **Textbook Approach ** include the Textbook, the Solutions Key 1-5 and 6-10, and the Tests & Quizzes. The Solutions Keys include solutions to the textbook and the tests and quizzes. Components for the **Unit approach ** are the set of 10 reusable units (students write on a separate piece of paper), a quiz and test packet, a quiz and test answer key, and the Solutions Guide for the Units. Please note the publisher refers to the units as **Preliminary Units**. The publisher plans on the preliminary edition being available for several years until they refine the materials into a full color textbook. ~ Deanne
