The Algebra 1/2 course focuses on introductory algebra topics. It is designed to facilitate your transition from the concrete concepts of arithmetic to the abstract concepts of algebra. One feature of Algebra 1/2 that you will find particularly useful is the lesson reference numbers in the problem sets. Beneath each problem number in the problem sets is a number in parentheses; this number refers to the lesson where the concepts and skills required to solve the problem are introduced. Should you have difficulty solving a particular problem, refer to the appropriate lesson for assistance.
The book contains daily lessons and investigations. Each lesson begins with practice of basic number facts and mental math that will improve speed, accuracy, and ability of students to do math. The pattern and problem-solving activities give practice using strategies that help solve more complicated problems. Practice problems focus on the topic of each lesson. Following each lesson is a problem set that reviews the day-to-day learning skills. Investigations are variations of the daily lesson.
Addition is the combining of two groups into one group. For addition example, when we count the dots on the top faces of a pair of dot cubes (dice), we are adding.
