This FULL SEMESTER COURSE (BUNDLE) is comprised of 9 units representative of over 75 topics from grade 4 to 9. They are IN THE SAME ORDER in which I teach Algebra 1A at my charter school to at-risk students.
Also included are 12 FINAL EXAM formats of varying difficulty.
INCLUDED is a TEACHER's GUIDE of every teaching reference utilized by the enclosed problems as well as every (large) diagram needed by the problems. From this alone the units can be thought through and designed. Also included is a SPECIAL RUN of level 1 (simplest) problems that basically provides you with a preview of each of the units and skills within them. A READ ME FIRST text file puts the whole course in perspective.
Further, for each UNIT I have added a READ ME FIRST text file detailing what has worked well for me.
The course was designed and created when it was asked of me to create a course that at-risk secondary students could master--as they were incredibly uncomfortable with the on-line courses available. So, I created a course with lots of FRACTION and DECIMAL REVIEWS, CONCEPTUAL UNDERSTANDING OF ALGEBRAIC EXPRESSIONS, SKETCHING and VISUALIZATION and, frankly, CHALLENGING material The course is the result of a lot of experimentation and thought--which is still going on.
[The problems in All UNIT WORKSHEETS and the PREVIEW are printed in difficulty (1 [easy], 2 [not so easy], 3 [proficiency] up to 4 [mastery]) order within a skill. The actual difficulty level appears slightly to the left of the DK box of each problem in a very small font. Also, instructional references appear on worksheets but are optional on quizzes.]
Look at the PREVIEW and, of course, the snapshots. But the Preview will give you an excellent idea of the flow of the course itself.
The units are UNIT 1: Fraction BASICS
, UNIT 2: Decimal BASICS
, UNIT 3: Percent & Signed Numbers BASICS
, UNIT 4: Real Numbers & Algebraic Expressions
, UNIT 5: One Variable Equations
, UNIT 6: One Variable Inequalities
, UNIT 7: Word Problems
, UNIT 8: Two Variable Equations w/Graphing
and UNIT 9: More Slope & Graphing
