This book builds on the topics learned in Algebra 1: Book 2 and Algebra 2: Book 1. If you have already learned about linear equations in Slope-Intercept Form and Standard Form, this book will guide you through a wide variety of scenarios that involve equations in those forms. You will then learn how the slope formula can be manipulated to create the Point-Slope Form for a linear equation. This book introduces you to the concept of a trend line, which is used to analyze data that follows a linear pattern. Vertical lines, horizontal lines, and linear inequalities are also explored in this book.

If you are searching for an independent algebra program or a supplement to teach specific algebra concepts, Summit Math is worth your consideration. Using the guided discovery method, students make their own connections as they learn to master each scenario before moving on to the next. Each section builds on previous concepts already learned. The first half of the book incorporates the guided discovery approach, while the latter half uses extra practice sheets to improve understanding of the topics. Each section has an answer key. A placement test and pacing guide is provided for each level. The author states this is a complete program teaching typical topics in the Algebra I and II sequence while preparing students for standardized testing. If students feel they need extra instruction, a video subscription is available from the publisher. Free downloadable tests and a more detailed version of the answer key are also available at the publisher’s website.
