For some students approaching high school, Algebra looms ahead as a fearful, threatening, and sadly misunderstood class. Christian Light's Algebra 1 course takes the fear and misunderstandings out of the equation.

This Algebra 1 course teaches concepts in small increments and then continuously reviews and builds upon those concepts to help students retain and master the material. Students will appreciate the reference numbers after each direction line that indicate the lessons where the concept was previously taught. "Math in History" notes throughout the textbook spark students' interest and broaden their knowledge.

The course is divided into 10 units with a total of 160 lessons.
