Product Overview

Give your homeschooler a solid foundation in algebraic concepts with the Horizons Algebra 1 Student Book. Containing 160 colorful math lessons, 16 sports and real-life applications, and 15 college test-prep problem sets, this workbook teaches basic operations with monomials, polynomials, and rational expressions, as well as linear equations and graphing, quadratic equations and functions, conjunctions, and disjunctions. A tests and resources book is sold separately.

The Horizons Algebra 1 Student Book also prepares your child for the future rigors of standardized tests with a set of college test prep questions that follows each block of ten lessons. In addition, a new collection of math-minute interviews brings concepts to life. Adding a human interest to word problems, these insightful interviews help your child understand how ordinary people use algebra concepts in their daily vocations. While students may find some of the topics in Horizons Algebra 1 challenging, they will learn more about math and God's carefully designed world. Throughout this book, students read interviews with several Christians who are using algebra in their daily lives. These testimonies are designed to show students how math can play a role in their future.
