$299.00

The Algebra Program is

  • Divided into 6 modules
  • Covers all the essential elements in Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1, and Algebra 2
  • Can be completed in one year if a student does 1 lesson each day, 5 days a week. Two years if your student does 1 lesson every other day.

Lessons are

  • Only 5-10 minutes long
  • Taught using computer generated graphics and animation.
  • Taught conceptually and for mastery.

Students are

  • Never taught tricks, shortcuts, rules or formulas.
  • Never asked to memorize anything.

Rules and Formulas

  • Just show up once the student(s) learn the how, where and why of the concept

 This program teaches you the language of math!!!

 How does this online program work?

  1. To begin a lesson, the student is told whether a quiz on a previous lesson is necessary.
  2. If a quiz is necessary, the instructor will give the student access to the appropriate online quiz or test, by clicking on the appropriate test icon. As well, the test may be printed out for the student.
  3. The instructor will grade the students' test by clicking on the appropriate icon.
  4. Watch the new Video Lesson online.
  5. Click on the prompt to automatically bring up the appropriate Course Notes.
  6. Click on the prompt to automatically bring up the appropriate WorkText pages.
  7. While viewing the exercises on the screen, the student works on a separate sheet of paper.
  8. Click on the prompt to automatically bring up the appropriate Solutions Manual pages.
  9. Click on the prompt to end the lesson for the day.

($299 pricing reflects licensing for two students. Add an additional student in your family's household for $49. A student license will last three years from the date it is activated for each student.)

FROM VIDEOTEXT-
The reason that we named our program "Algebra: A Complete Course," is that we believe the best way to learn Algebra is to start at the beginning and end at the end! In this program, you will find a complete study of the essential material covered in a traditional Algebra 1 and Algebra 2 course.

    However, we need to continue a little further with this answer because Algebra 1 and Algebra 2 are terms that refer mostly to the traditional way that Algebra has been taught. Traditional Algebra 1 classes attempt to cover most of Algebra in the first year, but the methods that are used, and the speed with which the material is covered, hinders student understanding of the material. Instead, the student is just exposed to memorizing rules, formulas, tricks, and shortcuts. By the time they get to what is called an Algebra 2 course, (sometimes after they take a Geometry course), they have forgotten almost all of the Algebra that they memorized. So, that Algebra 2 course (which is by definition, a rehash of whatever has been called Algebra 1), must repeat practically all of the Algebra 1 course. In fact, it usually repeats a lot of the Pre-Algebra material as well. This is usually referred to as the "spiral method" of learning, and it is not very effective in helping students to excel, especially at this level of mathematics.

    We think that this huge overlap is generally unproductive, and largely unnecessary if the concepts are taught analytically. Therefore we call our program "Algebra: A Complete Course," because we employ a mastery-learning approach, sometimes moving at a slower pace, but without the overlap. As a result, students often complete the course even more quickly.

When a student completes Geometry: A Complete Course along with Algebra: A Complete Course, the publisher states that the student will gain four math credits - Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Honors Geometry and Pre-Calculus.
