Students with a solid foundation in arithmetic are now prepared to apply it to the study of algebra. They will appreciate right away that every algebraic concept logically builds on the previous one, a demonstration of the truth and order that God has built into the universe. Using the properties of equality, your teen will learn step by step how to solve linear equations that include fractions, decimals, rational expressions, radical expressions, and absolute value expressions. Inequalities are similarly introduced using inequality notation and inequality properties. The equations, inequalities, and functions are graphed, analyzed, solved, and expanded in systems of equations. The Abeka Academy teacher provides clear explanation and the text provides abundance of practice and review exercises to make it possible for your teen to master and retain the concepts. To emphasize the practical use of algebra, word problems in the course materials highlight applications from daily life and career situations.
As your teen becomes acquainted with his classmates on the video, he will enjoy feeling as though he is a part of the class. The teacher will even pause to allow “students watching” opportunity to participate. In fact, he may enjoy it so much that he will choose to watch the designated optional lessons on such topics as solving mixture problems, writing equations for polygons, and factoring by grouping.
The prerecorded online video streaming or DVDs give you the flexibility to set your own daily schedule. The video lease provides a full 12 months to complete the 170 lessons and 6 months to complete 85 lessons for a semester. You also have the option to purchase either the Video & Books or Video (for those who may already have some of the materials and wish to purchase individual items separately). A video manual is provided with either option to help you stay on track with the video teacher. Also, record-keeping progress reports are included with both options to document your child’s progress through the school year.
Abeka Academy offers two different program types to meet your family’s specific needs. The Unaccredited program allows for more course flexibility and relies solely on the home teacher to keep track of student records. For an additional charge, the Accredited program provides official report cards and standardized testing as well as reliable record-keeping by our academic team. With either option, academic assistance is accessible through email, live chat, or phone. Conveniently view our Homeschool Agreement before purchase to understand the requirements. Recommended grade 9.
