Publisher Description:

Explore the world of algebraic concepts with the Horizons Algebra I Student Book! Making advanced math more appealing and easier with eye-catching illustrations and an easy-to-follow lesson format, this colorful Alpha Omega curriculum reviews factoring, prime numbers, scientific notation, and algebraic expressions, while introducing your child to systems of equations, rational expressions, systems of linear equations, basic operations with monomials and polynomials, quadratic equations with radicals, graphs of exponential functions, and more.

Each teacher-directed Horizons Math lesson in the student book includes a teaching box that outlines the new concept being introduced, a classwork section that reinforces the information with teacher-guided practice questions, and an activities section with problems that cover the current lesson topic and concepts from previous lessons. The Horizons Algebra I Student Book also prepares your child for standardized testing with a set of college test prep questions that follows each block of ten lessons. Plus, the student book contains 16 sports and real-life applications that give more meaning to math.

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.

Which addition is this? I am looking for 2015 or later.
A shopper on Jun 6, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It doesn't say which addition this is anywhere. But it does say Apr '15 printing on the back cover.
The teacher's Guide which goes with this student book says June '12 Printing on the back cover.
Hope that helps.
Can I buy the test booklet separately?
