## Algebra 1 (9th-12th)

**Teacher: **Kay Drake

**Description: **Building on Pre-Algebra, Algebra I students will learn skills needed to successfully complete the math portion of the ACT test. An emphasis is placed on word problems so 9th-12th grade students will learn how to apply algebra to everyday situations.

Each student will use the Abeka curriculum and will need a text book and a quiz/test book. (The best price I found is on the Abeka.org website. The Algebra I Homeschool Student Kit is only $61.60.) Families with multiple students in the class may opt to provide one textbook as problems will be worked on paper.) A syllabus will be provided with lesson plans and reference charts.

**Class Length: ** 16 weeks, year long

**Homework:** 1-2 hours

**Book: **none

**Supplies: **Abeka Homeschool Student Kit for Algebra I $61.60; folders for homework/quizzes for test review; graph paper; color pencils (optional)
