Using the same format as the pre-algebra in the Horizons series, Algebra continues the consistency of staying with one program. Students will explore math through sports and real-life applications throughout the 160 user-friendly lessons. The Horizons Algebra Set includes everything you need to do the course - Student Book (consumable workbook), Teacher Guide, and tests/resource guide. Topics to be covered in this course include exponents & powers, absolute value, radical expressions, multiplying and dividing monomials and polynomials, the FOIL Method, factoring trinomials, as well as solving, writing, and graphing linear equations. Interviews are found in the Algebra I course (just as in the pre-algebra) of people who use math in everyday life - some are more unusual and might present options for careers not yet thought of by your student.
