Publisher Description:

Student Book: Jacobs Elementary Algebra has come to be so highly regarded in the homeschool market. This high school algebra curriculum provides a full year of math in a clearly written format with guidance for teachers as well as for students who are self-directed. The primary student text is divided into 17 sections, covering functions and graphs, integers, rational numbers, exponents, polynomials, factoring, fractions, and more. As the student works through the text, select solutions are provided in the text, with full answers available in the solutions manual.

Teacher Guide: This is the Teacher Guide that goes with Elementary Algebra. This guide is filled with everything you need. It includes perforated tear out pages that include worksheets, quizzes, and tests. The answers keys are also included. We have done all the work for you. All you have to do is look at the lesson schedule and give your student that assignments for that day. It's that easy.

Solutions Manual: The exercises for each lesson in Elementary Algebra are arranged in four sets. Those in Set I review ideas from preceding lessons, affording continual practice with material considered earlier in the course. Sets II and III enable the student to apply the concepts of the new lesson. Because both sets have the same content, you will probably prefer to work on one set or the other. Answers to all of the Set II exercises are given at the back of the textbook. Those answers, together with those to Sets I, III, and IV, are included in this book.

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.

I have heard excellent reviews about this product and I am looking forward to trying it out with our homeschooling child. The reviews mentioned there was an element of humor in the presentation of this book as well and so I am curious about that. It is a comprehensive set with a teacher's guide and DVD which we will use for support and I like that as well. I also appreciate that this is a book because I like that my child will be working with a text versus the computer screen for mathematics.

Good reputation for being a well-taught program. I like that it comes with instructional DVD's and a solutions manual that shows how to work every problem. I look forward to using it with my children.

After much research, this seems to be the best fit for our son. Recommended by the author of Math Mammoth, DVD instruction is well-paced and helpful, and the price is best here at Rainbow Resources!

So many high recommendations for this ! We are excited to start this.
Cheryl M on Aug 5, 2019
After every year on Saxon, we got to Algebra and just didn't love it anymore. Highly recommended by two friend who were math teachers. Let my language loving son read through it and he actually became excited about Algebra!
Troy M on Feb 20, 2019
I LOVE Masterbooks curriculum, and this was the next recommended math set. I'm excited to see how I will love it!

I know this is put out by Masterbooks but does this have religious content? On a review website I read it said it was a secular course. I am wanting to know if I have to purchase this out of pocket or if I can purchase with funds? Maybe just the textbook and Dvd can be purchased with funds?
A shopper on Aug 2, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The book is math. There isn't a religious component to it. Same with the DVD. I will add that my daughter did not like this curriculum. The book was not laid out well. Even in my husband's opinion, the questions were not laid out well. My daughter stopped using the DVDs as they just confused her more. Best of luck!
Do you recommend completing pre-algebra prior to Jacob’s first year algebra course?
Wendy P on Oct 23, 2018
BEST ANSWER: As a general rule, yes, it would be best for the student to complete a pre-algebra course. Exceptions might be completing Primary Math (Singapore Approach Math) through Level 6 or Saxon Math 87 both of which cover pre-algebra as part of the course.

LOVE THIS!
My 13-year-old/8th grade son is really enjoying this curriculum so far. We ordered it on the recommendation of the author of the Math Mammoth curriculum, which my son used for grades 5-7. He's finding that this builds very nicely on the foundations that was laid and is similar is style and perspective. Price was best at Rainbow Resource Center!
