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.

Curriculum & Courses


Understanding the Curriculum Included with the Curriculum Upgrade Plan...


36-Week K-12 Curriculum Overview

As a member of the Curriculum Upgrade Plan, you have access to structured Curriculum for grades K through 12, which includes a 36 week program corresponding to the 180-day school year.  Each week, you will find listed topics and resources to learn about specific subjects throughout the school year.  It is up to you and your family to cover, complete, and grade the material available to you.

We suggest that you use the Blog feature in your Profile to track your child's work, or use your own grading and portfolio system for documenting your children's work.  HLN does not currently have an internal grading system, and we do not provide teachers to grade student work.  We believe that YOU are your children's best evaluator of their work, and this also allows us to keep membership fees affordable for all homeschooling families.

36- Week Courses

Over the last year, HLN has released 36-Week Courses for Middle School and High School Math.  This year (2012-2013) we are releasing Middle School Science Courses in August, 2012.  Future plans include releasing a full curriculum of Courses in all subject areas for grades 6-12, as well as core courses for Elementary grades.

HLN utilizes e-book course content using Pearson Education Materials.  In order to have e-book access, each course requires a small book fee to access the e-book, and subscribers then have access to that content for a full year.  Use the link below to explore all courses that are currently available, including specific learning objectives for each week.

Grade 6 Math

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 Grade 06 Math Course includes a combination of rational numbers, patterns, geometry and integers in preparation for one- and two-step equations and inequalities.

Guided Problem Solving strategies throughout the text provide students with the tools they need to be effective and independent learners. An emphasis on fractions solidifies student understanding of rational number operations in preparation for applying these skills to algebraic equations. Activity Labs throughout the text provide hands-on, minds-on experiences to reach all types of learners.

Requirements: You must be an HLN Curriculum Upgrade Member  to take HLN Courses. To have access to your online book resources to complete this course, there is also a one-time fee of $24.95. Once a member, if you wish to take a Course, you will be guided to a page to pay your E-Book Resource Fee. Once you have purchased the book resources, HLN will send you an email within one business day with your Book Access login via the Pearson website.

Each Course has its own Course Access Fee.

Grade 8 Pre-Algebra

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 Grade 08 Pre-Algebra covers algebraic expressions and integers, solving one-step equations and inequalities, area and volume, and linear functions.

Students of all levels benefit from the structured leveled set of exercises in the homework sections. First, students practice by example. Next, they apply the skills they have learned, and finally, students are challenged with problems that require them to apply concepts on an accelerated level. The Go For Help icon refers students back to examples for help on similar problems previously introduced in the chapter.

High School Math


Algebra 1
For many students who struggle, 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. Prentice Hall Algebra 1 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.

Follow the Alaskan Pioneer Project

 

We have exciting plans this year!

Chuck Baird, also known as The Alaskan Pioneer, left for Latouche Island in southern Alaska in June, 2012, and will be spending a year in the wild, alone.  He will be building a small cabin to live in, and is taking a dog and goat.  He will live there for one year, alone, with no communication with the outside world, with the exception of an "uplink" to the web, via his  Alaskan Pioneer Facebook Page.

The Homeschool Learning Network was in contact with him before he left, and we asked him for his permission to follow along and create projects and lessons for our homeschooling families based on his adventure, and the information he shares via his uplink connection.

A Free Project for Our Homeschooling Community

The Homeschool Learning Network now provides a free community for homeschoolers, which includes collaborative and individual projects for our homeschooling families, along with many other features.

One of our main features this year will be our Alaskan Pioneer Project!  This will include:

  • Lesson plans and activities to learn about The Alaskan Pioneer 
  • Lesson plans and activities to explore the Island he will be staying on
  • Photos, maps, and information about Latouche Island
  • Lesson plans and activities that follow The Alaskan Pioneer as he reveals his experiences
  • Message boards to allow all students and families to participate in the journey
  • Much more to be revealed as his adventures unfold!

How to be Part of the Adventure

This year-long project is FREE to all our Community Plan members, simply register for free, and join in the adventure!  Just look for the Alaskan Pioneer Icon on your main Community Member Homepage, click, and read Chuck Baird's plans, read the history of the island, and any other information that is available and will become available throughout the year.

Special thanks to Chuck Baird for allowing us access to post all of his communications within our free pages for all to learn from. We hope to see you join in the adventures!

 


Good Luck Chuck!
