Category Description for Foerster Algebra 1:

This text is a one year, high-school algebra course that the author used in his own classroom. The first part of the book leads up to the Quadratic Formula by mid-year; this is a break from a more traditional sequence. As a result, students are able to work more realistic word problems using decimals. The second part of the book covers expressions with two variables, harder factoring problems, algebraic fractions, radical equations, and inequalities. This book is in its third edition and now includes a chapter on probability, scattered date, and linear functions, which wasn't included in the previous edition. Chapters, in order, are: expressions and equations, operations with negative numbers, distributing: axioms and other properties, harder equations, some operations with polynomials and radicals, quadratic equations, expressions and equations containing two variables, linear functions/scattered data/probability, properties and exponents, more operations with polynomials, rational algebraic expressions, radical algebraic expressions, inequalities, functions, and advanced topics. Each chapter begins with an introduction to the topic, a visual example, an objective for that section, and exercises. Some chapters include oral practice, but all examples are shown in a step-by-step fashion for thorough understanding. The chapter wraps up with a chapter review and test, and a final review and examination rounds out the text. The back of the book includes reference materials such as a table of square roots, table of trigonometric functions, glossary, answers to selected problems, indices, and a skills handbook. The skills handbook is a reference section for basic skills such as problem solving strategies, the four basic functions, fractions/decimals/percents, line and circle graphs, and spreadsheets.

The Solutions Manual contains all worked out problems, step-by-step, for the exercise sets, oral practice sets, chapter reviews, chapter tests, and the final review and examination that are found in the student text.

I chose to add the Solutions Manual to our order so that we would have answers for all the problems we choose to do, including the review questions. I have not seen the book in person, but from asking around, I understand (but have not verified) that the review questions otherwise don't have answers in the back of the book. In the event that we do more problems for mastery, I wanted to be prepared.

Foerster's Algebra I is well-organized and, I think, the most intuitive way to teach the subject. I wanted to be able to give tests based on instruction from the book, so I purchased the Solutions Manual.

My daughter will be going into Saxon Algebra 2, which Foersters Math would be similar?
A shopper on Jun 6, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Assuming your daughter has completed Saxon Algebra 1 (3rd edition), she has had an introduction to geometry. Algebra II (3rd ed) continues with some geometry integrated with the algebra and a student completing both Algebra 1 and Algebra II with have the equivalent of about a half-credit of geometry. Foersters takes a more traditional approach covering Algebra 1 and then assuming the student is continuing with a full-credit geometry course. Foersters Algebra 2 and Trig is the next course and requires both a credit of algebra and a credit of geometry as a prerequisite. While Foersters Algebra 2 and Trig would be the most similar to Saxon Algebra 2, it will not really work well to do it instead of the Saxon unless your student has completed a geometry course.
Is this solutions manual for the Prentice-Hall Algebra 1 classics for the regular Algebra 1? it is very confusing looking online. I bought the classics version and plan to buy the tests and quizes by Memoria Press. However, I feel like I need a solutions guide that shows how the problems are solved. Does this book do that?
A shopper on May 15, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, this is the solutions manual for the Algebra I Prentice-Hall Classics (Paul A. Foerster).
It provides you with the answer to all the problems of the textbook, using a few steps (or no steps at all, depending on the nature of the problem).
I personally have found this book to be very useful to check students' answers. In fact, this is the only solutions book I have been using for the past two years and I think it has been more than enough. However, have in mind that it does not necessarily show you all the steps needed in order to get to that answer.
Hope this helps.
Does this manual work for the second edition Algebra 1? I think it was printed back in 1990?!
Becca R on May 31, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The inside of my manual says the answers are for the "Third Edition of Algebra 1: Expressions, Equations, and Applications. " My text book is the Third Edition, and says there are changes between the two, so this answer book would not work. I did puchase my text book used, on Amazon, for around $11, so it shouldn't be too expensive to replace yours. I would do it-the Third Edition is more comprehensive, and this answer book is perfect. If you need teacher instruction, I ordered the "Math Without Borders" flash drive that instructs this curriculum. Well worth the $75.
I have a 1999 printing of this book; will the solutions manual still work for it?
A shopper on May 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, I have a 1999 print as well. There have been a couple times where the answer did not match up to the original problem, but it hasn't been a problem yet; I was still able to figure out the correct answer. I love the solutions manual! It has been a wonderful help for me.
This has an older publication date. Is there a solution manual for the 2006 textbook? Or do I need to buy the older (1994) textbook to go with this?
A shopper on Feb 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have the 2006 "Classics" edition and it lines up perfectly.
Are the test answers in the solutions manual?
A shopper on Jan 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the test answers are in the solutions manual. It is such a great help because it doesn't just give answers to every problem in the text, but it also shows the steps that should be taken to get the answer.
Are the word problems worked out in the solution manual?
Kerstin D on Oct 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes! 100%! Worth every penny! We didn't have $ for an online class, so we bought Math wo Borders for $80 and added the solution manual. We got the text for free. You will not regret it. Like Saxon - every step is broken down so she can see where she needs support.

Correct Solutions Manual for Foerster Algebra 1 3rd Edition!
Exactly what I needed for the Prentice Hall Classics, 3rd edition, Foerster Algebra 1: Expressions, Equations, and Applications text. Came in excellent condition as well. Glad that I was able to find this solutions manual! The text offers very good, clear, and complete instruction on how to solve each problem. It makes it so much easier to check my child's work!

Paul Foerster Algebra 1 solution manual
I normally do not care much for solutions manuals, but I like the way this one is arranged. He gives all steps on the problems so it is easy to follow.. The final answers are clearly marked with double underlines. I also appreciate the comments that are along side certain answers. He points out details like "note the negative sign" because when grading in a hurry, you might accidentally skip by that simple important distinction. On open ended questions he gives some great diverse comments that will also help instructors use for discussion of some of the not so simple answers. I encourage parent teachers to take a look at the answers each chapter to find nuggets for teaching rather than just allowing the student to grade their own work. When the students do use the book for grading their own work remind them the final answer is the goal and they should not count a previous step as correct if they did not simplify all the way.

Like a few others, due to cost, I opt not to purchase the manual. But despite the use of MWB video instructions, and parent assistance, we found that the answer key was desired and needed for even the end of the chapter review (used as their test). glad I bought it.. :)
