Introduce your students to Algebra 1 with AGS Publishing: Algebra from Pearson Learning. The content provides learners of all abilities with essential preparation in problem solving, calculator usage, and application lessons that demonstrate how algebra is integrated with geometry, probability, and statistics.
The Student Text offers high-interest, approachable lessons that break concepts into small, manageable sections. Numerous exercises help students learn how to apply the primary concepts, while step-by-step examples of problem solving strategies provide examples to follow. Chapter reviews provide an opportunity to check for skill mastery, while a skill review section at the back of the book summarizes the skills presented throughout the course. 526 indexed pages, hardcover.
The Student Workbook provides the reinforcement and practice necessary for students to master Algebra. Workbook pages are clearly linked to the chapter and lesson in the student text for easy usage. Examples and a variety of problems are included with short directions. 126 non-reproducible pages, softcover.
The Teacher's Edition includes a planning guide for each chapter that aligns the student page numbers, text features, teaching strategies, and learning styles. The daily lesson plans are in the margins around reduced-size student pages that have the correct answers overlaid on the page by each problem; if answers are too large to fit on the page, they are moved into the margin. Each lesson starts with an overview and lesson objectives, and includes an introduction to the lesson, a chapter project, a warm-up activity, examples to teach, common errors, helpful tips for differentiating instruction based on learning styles, and various interesting lesson helps such as mental math and math history information. Workbook activities are line-listed in the back. Smaller reduced-size versions of the final and mid-term mastery tests as well as other activities on the (not-included) teacher's resource CD are also included, with answers in the back of the book as well. 554 pages, hardcover. Grades 6-12.
