    Algebra I

    Algebra is generalized arithmetic, so basic math skills are reviewed and built upon throughout the course.


    Saxon math is used in the study of Algebra I and II.  The Saxon approach uses incremental development and continual review.   The incremental development is the introduction of topics in easily understandable pieces (increments), permitting the assimilation of one facet of a concept before the next facet is introduced. Both facets are then practiced together until another is introduced.

    All material learned is then reviewed in every lesson for the entire year. Topics are never dropped but are instead increased in complexity and practiced every day, providing the time required for concepts to become totally familiar.

    Math concepts steadily become more familiar and the requisite skills become automated.  Learning is then demonstrated not only through the understanding of a concept, but also through the ability to apply that concept to new situations.


    Since Algebra I is the critical course for developing skills used in advanced math and science and for developing thinking skills used in modern technological society, this course involves rigorous practice.
