Algebra I

For many students, math shows up as a collection of rules, formulas, and properties that they learn temporarily, forget quickly, and never use again. Students find mathematics meaningless if they don't see the connections.

HLN's Algebra 1 Course, using Pearson Online Books and Learning Materials, teaches for understanding by incorporating an interwoven strand of thinking and reasoning into problem solving. This connects the math that students learn, from the first lesson to the last. By focusing on thinking, reasoning, and problem solving, students will become more prepared for success in school, in their careers, and in life.
