Review by Becky V.
Elementary Algebra is a math course is designed for grades 9-12, receiving 1 credit after completion. It is set up to be completed over 180 days (36 weeks) with a time commitment of 45-60 minutes a day.

I actually grabbed this set in order to brush up on my math skills before my kids get to this level of math - and I am impressed with this course and can’t wait to use it with my kids! The lessons are short and direct. Not really any fluff, though I know my kids will love the comics included. I found that just enough examples were given to be able to complete the exercises. Set I, II, and IV assignments are right in the student text, making it a good grab and go course.

The Teacher Guide is essential to successfully completing Elementary Algebra (Algebra I), as it contains full solutions to all of the exercises in the student text (for Sets I, II, and IV). It also contains the chapter tests, midterm, and final assessment as well as all the answers for each. The Teacher Guide also includes a recommended daily schedule to complete the course in one year.

The course itself is very flexible in the assignments given. Set I reviews previous lessons, Set II allows the student to practice the new concepts in the lesson, and Set IV is an optional challenge set. There is a separate, optional download available for purchase which contains Set III (additional problems to practice new concepts) and additional assessments. I would recommend using Elementary Algebra - I believe it to be just the right amount of work and appropriate for independent learning with or without the optional supplemental online Academy course!
a great next step after POM, get the academy videos!
Review by Sara
Our family is very excited to be continuing math with Master Books. We have done all levels of MLFLE, POM 1 and 2 and are now stepping into algebra. I am very thankful for the revised edition with everything available to me as a teacher inside the teachers guide. I have also chosen to use MB online course through the MB academy along with the books since they worked so well with my daughter through POM 2. I also can tell by looking through the material that having my daughter do both levels of POM in her 7-8th year is really going to help her with this course. She was able to get a start on a lot of the material that is in this book and I am thankful that it is not going to be overwhelming for us. We have already gone through it and enjoy the little stories and did bits at the beginning of each lesson that bring the topic to the real world. I am so pleased that she is not dreading getting started with this course!
Comprehensive Course!
Review by Krista
Jacob's Elementary Algebra is impressive with its thorough coverage of first-year algebra, presenting concepts in a user-friendly format. It makes learning enjoyable for students. With practical, real-life applications and structured lessons, this curriculum is an excellent choice for homeschooling families seeking a comprehensive algebra course for ages 13-15.
I think we found a winner!!!
Review by Sandie
This is the 3rd Algebra curriculum that we have tried. I love that it has a review for Set 1, and then the questions are all different, reguiring the student to think. This is so much better than 20+ problems of the same concept. I think my son is actually learning this now!
