 Algebra I Video Series

The Algebra I video series on DVD was made to give students clear, concise explanations of topics in a manner that the student may enjoy while acquiring the skills necessary to be successful in current and future mathematical courses. Throughout each DVD segment, pertinent definitions, theorems, and steps are shown and clearly explained. To reinforce these mathematical ideas, they are continually referenced and reviewed as examples are worked. Careful attention has been given to the NCTM Standards.

An ample number and variety of examples are solved on each tape segment by the lecturer. Each example solved is thoroughly explained step by step for the student. The examples on a single tape are graded in difficulty. Students are first exposed to examples that increase their confidence and problem-solving skills; then they are eased gradually through more difficult problems.

Algebra I consists of 89 video segments. Each segment is approximately 15 minutes in length. Topics include algebraic expressions, exponents, real numbers, solving equations and inequalities and applications, polynomials, factoring, rational expressions, graphing linear equations and inequalities in two variables, relations and functions, solving systems of linear equations, radicals, and solving quadratic equations.

Algebra I is made primarily for the junior high school or high school student. Objectives are clearly stated at the beginning of each segment. This series is extremely helpful to students enrolled in an algebra I mathematics course, students wanting to prepare before enrolling an algebra I course, students wanting a comprehensive review before enrolling in an algebra II course, or anyone wanting to review their basic algebra skills.
