Algebra 1 integrates text, DVD, and manipulatives to teach all basic algebra concepts. These include basic properties, solving equations (including simultaneous equations), coin problems, exponents and square roots, scientific notation, unit multipliers, and metric conversions. Graphing lines is taught in detail, and graphing conic sections is introduced. Operations with polynomials are demonstrated with place-value blocks for conceptual understanding before being taught conventionally.
The Algebra 2 Tutor is a 6 hour course spread over 2 DVD disks that will aid the student in the core topics of Algebra 2. This DVD bridges the gap between Algebra 1 and Trigonometry, and contains essential material to do well in advanced mathematics. Many of the topics in contained in this DVD series are used in other Math courses, such as writing equations of lines, graphing equations, and solving systems of equations. These skills are used time again in more advanced courses such as Physics and Calculus.
