Algebra 1 Details
Thinkwell's Algebra 1 course has online videos and automatic grading that teach algebra the way today’s students want to learn it. Whether you need a complete course or algebra homework help, Algebra 1 has everything you need.
Students enjoy our online video lessons with award-winning teacher Edward Burger; he's smart and funny, and his multimedia lessons work with any learning style. His step-by-step lessons focus on examples and real-world applications, which makes learning algebra fun and easy.
Thinkwell's Algebra 1 has all the features your home school needs:
- Aligned to Algebra 1 National Math Standards
- 34-week lesson plan with daily assignments (see lesson plan)
- More than 95 topics with 250+ engaging video lessons (see sample)
- 100 available contact hours (What is this?)
The number of contact hours in a course reflects the amount of time a student will typically spend completing the assignments in each course (i.e. watching videos, doing exercises, taking exams, etc...). Many people think about contact hours as the "seat time" for a course. Thinkwell provides this information so you can ensure that the amount of instruction in a Thinkwell course meets the standards and requirements for your state or region.
