Take your child into the world of upper-level math with the Horizons Pre-Algebra Student Book from Alpha Omega Publications! Making advanced math easier with eye-catching illustrations and an easy-to-follow lesson format, this colorful workbook reviews basic math skills before introducing algebra, geometry, and trigonometry concepts like absolute value, transformations and nets, compound interest, permutations, combinations, and two variable equations. Each 45-60 minute, teacher-directed lesson includes a teaching box that details the new concept being taught, a classwork section that reinforces the information with guided practice, and an activities section with problems for reviewing both the current lesson topic and previously taught concepts.
The Horizons Pre-Algebra 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 pre-algebra concepts in their daily vocations. While students may find some of the topics in Horizons Pre-Algebra 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 pre-algebra in their daily lives. These testimonies are designed to show students how math can play a role in their future.

"We just started Horizons Pre-Algebra after trying another company, and we are so delighted. The pages are updated to make them look appropriate for this age range. They have also included real-life examples of missionaries and others using their math skills, a great example for those who want to know, When will I ever need to use this? The teachers guide is very concise and easy to follow. I am so excited Horizons is going beyond 6th grade. What a difference it makes in our homeschool!"
