We use Algebra 1 by John Saxon along with the accompanying Algebra 1 Test Booklet. Algebra 1 presents the principles of algebra in an orderly manner and reviews the concepts regularly. Saxon also provides a solutions manual for the daily lessons, tests to be used throughout the year, and an answer keys for the tests. The Algebra I Syllabus has a day-by-day breakdown of this course along with a variety of teaching resources including Ninth Grade Subject Rubrics, Learning Objectives, and grading charts. This is a 1 year, 1 credit course.

Or the student can begin with Lesson 1 of Algebra 1, on Week 3, Day 1. Note: Please take a moment to review the resources attached to this syllabus (these are found on the Family site - Syllabi tab; please click on "Resources" at the far right for each syllabus title). The PDF files found here are taken from the printed copy of the corresponding syllabus, if there is one. Some resources are generic to the grade level or subject and others are specific to the particular course.

Some of these resources will be assigned or referenced within the syllabus assignments. Others are here for support. |
