InDepth Coverage of Concepts and Skills
Students learn and develop skills in preparation for trade school or collegelevel courses. Mathematical language, problem styles, and problemsolving and reasoning skills used in college entrance exams are used throughout the program to prepare students.
Examples and Practice Pages give students ample opportunities to practice what they have learned.
This Algebra 1 supports students planning to take the PSAT, ACT, SAT, and CLT tests as well as the course requirements of the NCAA.
Lesson content meets the skills and concepts required for standards alignment.


Enhanced Instructor Support
Instructors with little or no math background will appreciate that lessons are presented in an easytounderstand and use format.
Detailed instructional materials help instructors confidently support students.
Instructor materials include:
 Comparable student worktext pages
 Notes and tips to create opportunities for deeper connections with the curriculum
 Question prompts to check for understanding and misconceptions
 Suggested hints to prompt students without giving away the answer
 Answers, including fully worked solutions provided for all activities
 Record keeping sheets to help document progress and mastery


StudentDriven

Student Worktext provide:
 Clear lesson objectives
 Checkpoints to stay on track
 Example and practice problems
 Mastery checks
 Targeted Reviews for gradual Unit Test Preparation


Multimedia Tools
The Digital Pack is critical for the successful completion of this Algebra 1.
 Video presentations of lesson content and walkthroughs of example problems for the student
 Helpful resources such as links to Desmos, a digital copy of the Formula Sheet, Mastery Check Rubric and more
 Fully worked solutions that can be password protected by an instructor
 Student and instructor login options
 Progress monitoring tools
Video presentations provide a representation of abstract concepts, allowing students to understand and visualize problems.


Guided Notes
Guided Notes help students stay actively engaged while recording the most important information as they watch the lesson videos. Helping students identify critical items of each lesson helps them develop strong notetaking skills and study habits.
Guided Notes include fillintheblank statements, shortanswer questions, and detailed examples, with some missing pieces for students to fill in.


Warm Up and Review
Warm Up sections provide quick review and activate prior knowledge for each lesson.
Targeted Reviews allow students to gradually build their cumulative knowledge to prepare for the Unit, Midterm and Final.


SelfChecks
Students are given opportunities to selfassess and evaluate their understanding as they progress through a lesson.
Checkpoints highlight important concepts and ensure students can show understanding of the lesson’s objectives prior to moving to the practice.
Mastery Checks allow students to apply lesson and course objectives to show, and say what they’ve learned, using their own words to talk about the objectives for that part of a lesson.


Assessments
Assessments include Lesson and Unit Tests, a Midterm Test, and Final Test.The Unit, Midterm and Final tests include problems comparable to those seen on standardized tests.
