Publisher Description:

Take the unknowns out of advanced math with the Horizons Algebra I Set from Alpha Omega Publications! Daily lesson topics include properties of equality, factoring and scientific notation, basic operations with monomials and polynomials, and other advanced math-building concepts like complex fractions and rational expressions, quadratic functions, exponential growth, compound inequalities, and more. To make algebra come to life, this year-long course includes sections on today's sports activities and other real-life applications before each set of ten lessons.

This Christian curriculum comes complete with one consumable student book divided into 160 lessons and a student tests and resources book with 16 tests, four quarterly exams, 80 practice worksheets, and algebra square manipulatives, as well as a time-saving teacher's guide complete with answer keys, a readiness test, and a scope and sequence. Plus, each block of ten lessons in the Horizons Algebra I Set contains a challenging set of problems that prepares students for the rigors of standardized math testing.

Category Description for Horizons Algebra:

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.




Category Description for Horizons Math:

Admittedly, no math program will work for everyone - but I find few flaws in this motivating and well-laid out program. Although it may be more advanced for grade level than the "average" program, I don't consider that a negative. Because of the developmental approach to learning in this program, even a non-math type can easily succeed, while the "math whiz" will be challenged by the advanced topics introduced early. Concepts are introduced incrementally, then practiced, developed, and continually reviewed as other concepts are introduced. Horizons lays a solid foundation for numerical literacy with an early emphasis on hands-on, concept learning via manipulatives and one-on-one lessons. The program relies on few separately purchased manipulatives by utilizing common household items and including charts and number lines found in the teacher's handbooks. A useful table in the handbook shows the integration of manipulatives in lessons so you can tell at a glance just what you'll need. Analytical reasoning and mental acumen are stressed throughout the series, and memorization and drill are not neglected. The teacher handbook is the heart of the program, containing daily lesson plans that are easy to implement. Reduced student pages are a tremendous aid in planning and supply answers to the worktext exercises. Besides plans, the handbook contains an overview, materials list, activities, and supplemental worksheets (approx. one for each 4 lessons). Designed for homeschoolers, the activities, language, and lessons require no alteration. There are 160 lessons per level, each requiring approximately 20-30 minutes per day. Tests are given after every 10 lessons to assess retention of cumulative skills. While a good part of each lesson is oral (especially at the K level), the enticing, colorful student worksheets lay foundations for lessons and review concepts previously taught. There are two workbooks per grade level. Please note that the actual lesson is to be taught by you - there are only brief instructions on each page of the workbooks, which are not intended to be self- instructional. Boxed set contains the teacher book and 2 student workbooks. Additional Student Worksheet Packets contain one photocopy of each reproducible master in the teacher book.

I have used Horizons Pre-Algebra for a number of years in a home school Co-Op and really like the format. I am looking forward to using Algebra 1 for the first time this year.

As always, Horizons provides the best visual aids with the Algebra tiles and we have always loved the three book approach and the instructor's guide is really easy to work with.

We have been using Horizons for Math for years. My kids retain more information because it repeats the topics.

Can I use Horizons Algebra 1 for 9th grade math?
A shopper on Apr 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: My oldest is completing the Horizons Pre-Algebra in 8th grade and would be using the Algebra 1 for 9th. They cover a lot of the same topics, just progressing in the difficulty of the topic. We used a different math for 7th grade that left him unprepared to move into Algebra 1 for 8th. As far as I know, if your student plans to take A/P Honors classes in High School, they should have completed Algebra 1 during 8th grade.
What program would you use after Horizons Algebra?
User on Jun 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I suggest you take a look at the Jacob's Geometry program. It's a good, solid program with user-friendly features - #23426, #23427, and #23428.
How can I tell which edition the box set is?
User on Jun 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: There is only a single edition of this course. The copyright is MMXII (2012).

Need way more instruction in the teacher's guide
Barely any help in the set to learn the book, we are at lesson 19 and struggling to complete the lessons. Having to get tutorials elswhere on line for how to do things. We had no problem with him passing pre algebra last year in his school. It seems like the book was made for a class where the teacher is teaching and then you do the work at home. My husband is great with math and has been helping him but he is not impressed.

Horizons Algebra 1
My son has used Horizons Math from the beginning and he really enjoys it. My only complaint is that there is not any real review for the tests and sometimes the things that were covered at the very beginning of the chapter have been forgotten. I overcome that with saving some of the worksheet questions to do before the test as a review.
