If your family already has the required Integer Block Kit and Algebra/Decimal Insert Kit, the Math-U-See Algebra 1 Level Up Base Set includes the rest of what you need for success with this key course:
Studying algebra will develop your student's abilities in problem-solving, reasoning, and logic. Major concepts and skills include graphing linear equations and inequalities; describing linear equations in slope-intercept and standard form; solving systems of equations using graphing, substitution, and elimination; expanding understanding of exponents; solving basic quadratic equations with factoring; and using unit multipliers to convert between units of measure. Some of the other topics your student will explore include adding, multiplying, and dividing polynomials and applying significant digits to computations with scientific notation.
Algebra 1 is a critical course in secondary mathematics, providing the foundation for future success in critical thinking and problem solving. Math-U-See's hands-on approach is an especially good option for learners who struggle with abstract concepts. Each lesson teaches using multisensory tools designed to appeal to any type of learner. With these resources, you can adapt the program to your student's homeschool style.
