Description
Algebra 1 is one of the most intimidating subjects for math students. The reason is that prior to this point students have been dealing with numbers such as "3" and "43" and now suddenly in Pre-Algebra And Algebra 1 they begin to deal with variables such as "x" and "y". This concept at first can seem a bit daunting with all of those letters running around!
The Algebra 1 Tutor starts off with the very basics - fractions - and assumes that the students knows absolutely nothing about the subject. A great deal of time is spent on fractions and the concept of a negative number before the student is presented with Algebraic Expressions, which is where most Algebra 1 Textbooks begin. In this way a solid foundation is laid upon which Algebra 1 can be conquered.
The core philosophy of this 7 hour DVD course is that "Algebra Is Easy". The way that you make it easy for a student is to start off with the basics and gradually move on to the tougher material. In this way the student builds confidence in his or her skills and confidence is the key to success in Algebra.
The Algebra 1 Tutor: Volume 1 is 7 hours in duration and is part of a 2 Volume series that covers Algebra 1. The entire course will help a student fully master all of the core topics in Algebra 1. After mastering the concepts in this DVD series the student will be ready and able to move and tackle Algebra 2, Trigonometry, and beyond. |
