Saxon Math Grade 9 Algebra 1 4th Edition, Student Textbook
Algebra 1 covers all the topics in a first-year algebra course and builds the algebraic foundation essential for all students to solve increasingly complex problems. Higher order thinking skills use real-world applications, reasoning and justification to make connections to math strands. Algebra 1 focuses on algebraic thinking and multiple representations - verbal, numeric, symbolic, and graphical. Graphing calculator labs model mathematical situations. Hardcover
Provide students with a college-prep math course that will give them the foundation they need to successfully move into higher levels of math. Saxon Algebra 1, 4th Edition covers all of the traditional first-year algebra topics while helping students build higher-order thinking skills, real-world application skills, reasoning, and an understanding of interconnecting math strands. Saxon Algebra 1 focuses on algebraic thinking through multiple representations, including verbal, numeric, symbolic, and graphical, while graphing calculator labs model mathematical situations.
Incremental lessons include a "Warm Up" activity; "New Concepts" section that introduces new concepts through examples with sidebar hints and notes; and "Lesson Practice" questions with lesson reference numbers underneath the question number. Online connections are given throughout for additional help. Real-world applications and continual practice & review provide the time needed to master each concept, helping students to build confidence in their mathematical abilities.
Distributed, color-coded strands cover algebra foundations; functions and relations; equations; linear equations and functions; polynomials; rational expressions and functions; inequalities; systems of equations and inequalities; radical expressions and functions; quadratic equations and functions; absolute-value equations and inequalities; and probability and data analysis.
This 4th Edition is perfect for students who are interested in taking the Saxon Geometry course. Featuring the same incremental approach that's the hallmark of the Saxon program, the 4th Edition Algebra textbooks feature more algebra and precalculus content and fewer geometry lessons than their 3rd Edition counterparts.
