  2. Understanding Algebra 1 (Grades 7-9)  The Critical Thinking Company

    Understanding Algebra 1 (Grades 7-9) The Critical Thinking Company

    SKU: 12994

    $39.99

    This is a one-year Algebra I course for Grades 7-9.

    Students who have a solid algebra background will have no trouble with the algebra problems from SAT and even the GRE.

    This 384-page book highlights vocabulary and notation, and has examples from the history of math.

    What makes this book unique and different from other algebra textbooks is that it is built from the experiences of an award-winning algebra teacher with more than 30 years of teaching experience.

    Many textbooks are written by a committee of authors, and many of those authors have little experience teaching beginning algebra students in middle school or high school.

    Understanding Algebra I presents the most essential concepts and skills needed to fully understand and gain confidence in algebra in a step-by-step fashion, teaching students that algebra is generalized arithmetic.

    It helps students see the connection between mathematics that they already know and algebra, so that learning algebra becomes easier and less abstract.

    This book provides students with real strategies to succeed in solving word problems by using charts and translating strategies that guarantee success.

    Recommended for grades 7 and up.

    Vocabulary Virtuoso increases vocabulary, stimulates imagination, and boosts standards-based language arts skills. Each of the fifteen lessons teaches 12 PSAT (Preliminary SAT–a great primer for the SAT) vocabulary words, which are made up of dynamic, real-life words students may encounter while reading or use in their writing. Each lesson contains definitions, pronunciation keys, parts of speech, and alternate choices for each word made up of synonyms, idioms, and/or phrases. Lessons also include a story involving middle school students that introduces language arts concepts such as alliteration, idioms, fallacies in reasoning, foreign words and phrases, mythology, and journalistic writing. Students complete a variety of exercises requiring critical reading and writing skills to contextualize the words. The exercises deliberately use other forms of the words as different parts of speech, so that students learn to recognize these forms as variations of the original words—further expanding their vocabulary and enabling them to use the words in more contexts. Vocabulary Virtuoso emphasizes the correct spelling of the vocabulary words with Jumble activities that ask students to unscramble the word before writing the correct spelling. Whether used in the traditional classroom, as a homeschooling resource, or for independent study, Vocabulary Virtuoso is a highly effective and fun vocabulary resource! 168 pages. Contains Answers.
