Category Description for Elementary Algebra (Jacobs):

Now published by Master Books, Harold Jacobs' Elementary Algebra is the same thorough algebra course it has always been. This course is the equivalent of Algebra 1 and covers the basic algebraic concepts from a review of operations and functions through quadratic equations and number sequences. The chapters are Fundamental Operations, Functions and Graphs, Integers, Rational Numbers, Equations in One Variable, Equations in Two Variables, Simultaneous Equations, Exponents, Polynomials, Factoring, Fractions, Square Roots, Quadratic Equations, Real Numbers, Fractional Equations, Inequalities and Number Sentences this is the same chapter sequence as found in the previous edition of this text. A midterm and final review are included in the text as well.

Master Books assures us that there have been no changes in content even the problems in the exercises have remained the same. If you are familiar with the older text, one thing you will miss is some of the cartoons; however, some were kept in the text to add to the readabilityand a bit of humor never hurts. Although Master Books is a Christian company, this text doesn't proselytize there is no Christian content.

Lessons in the Student Textbook begin with concepts, and Mr. Jacobs makes sure you understand the why' before tackling the how.' The text's thorough explanation bite-size amounts of information make this a very popular program for understandability. There are still four sets of exercises in each lesson Set I reviews ideas from previous lessons for that continual review; Set II and Set III practice concepts taught in the lesson (Set III exercises are found in the teacher guide more on this in a bit); Set IV can be optional or be used for extra credit these offer challenge problems that go beyond the lesson. Answers to Set II exercises can be found in the back of the student book, which allows the student to self-grade, if you would like.

Recommended by her CC Tutor. Jenna needs the why behind algebra-- a good challenge.

I chose this product due to the need for a change in presentation. We have used Saxon Math for 21 years and 5 children. My fifth and last child wanted to study in a different curriculum. Saxon was good, but she wanted a different presentation with regards to Algebra in order to comprehend some of the concepts. I am hoping this is a successful move.

So far, my son loves Jacobs Algebra. He has struggled with math for a few years. So, this is a nice change.

Elementary Algebra Set: Good Balance
Jacobs Elementary Algebra is a great curriculum for our homeschooling family. It is a bit more challenging than other programs but not dry and boring like other text. I find it to be a good balance for my daughter. A motivated child can also do it on her own as the explanations are very good.

So far, so good. This is my 5th algebra curriculum. My daughter has been doing well with very little help. I'm pleased.

Good program if you have a math background
This is a good challenging Algebra 1 program, but it is missing some explanations. Already in Chapter 2, I am having to look things up online so I can teach my son how to do them. There isn't a lot in the way of explanations and, with only 1-2 examples in the lessons, helping can be challenging. It definitely isn't a read the chapter and just do the work kind of book. There is the solutions manual and the solutions to one of the sets is in the back of the book, but they problems aren't worked out (only giving the answer). We will stick with the program, but I might have to do a lot of online searching for specific examples on how to do problems.
