    Prepare your middle school student to excel at upper-level math with the new Horizons Pre-Algebra course! Along with exciting real life applications, this year long math course takes students from basic operations in whole numbers, decimals, fractions, percents, roots, and exponents and introduces them to math-building concepts in algebra, trigonometry and geometry. Divided in to 160 lessons, this course comes complete with one consumable student book, a student test and resources book and an easy-to-use teacher's guide. Every block of ten lessons begins with a challenging set of problems that prepares students for standardized math testing and features personal interviews showing how individuals make use of math in everyday life.

    Horizons Pre-Algebra includes several areas of new content, including:

    • Absolute Value
    • Volume and Surface Area of Solids
    • Transformations and Nets
    • Compound Interest
    • Representations of Data
    • Permutations, Combinations, and Odds and Events
    • Two Variable Equations
    • Four Operations with Monomials and Polynomials
    • Trigonometric Ratios

    The set consists of the student book, teacher's guide and tests/resource book. Similar in format to other Horizons K-6 courses, the consumable, full-color Horizons Pre-Algebra Student Book includes 160 daily lessons. Each lesson begins with a teaching box that details the new concept. A class work section has been added to this area of the lesson for guided practice of the new concept. Typical of other Horizons math courses, the activities section of each lesson includes a set of practice problems for the new concept and review problems for previously covered concepts. Another new feature of the Student Book is a set of college test prep questions that follows each block of 10 lessons. These problems are designed to help students prepare for standardized math testing. This book also includes a new collection of interviews with everyday people who use math in their daily vocations. Setting the stage for each group of lessons, these interviews bring the lessons to life by adding a human interest touch to word problems. (Perfect-bound, full-color, 8.5 x 11, 360 pages). The Horizons Pre-Algebra Teacher's Guide includes a readiness test, scope and sequence, appearance of concept charts, teaching tips for each lesson, reduced student and worksheet pages with solution keys for daily lessons, tests, exams, and worksheets. (Perfect-bound, black-and-white, 8.5 x 11, 400 pages). The Horizons Pre-Algebra Tests and Resources Book includes tests from the student books and worksheets from the teacher's guides of previous Horizons math courses. This book also provides tear-out tests, exams, and worksheets, as well as full-color net diagrams, algebra squares manipulatives on cardstock, and formula strips for tests and exams.

    A very user-friendly introduction to pre-algebraic concepts. This workbook contains skill introductions, practice problems, and drills for students needing review and extra practice or to challenge beginners. The book is divided into 11 sections with each section featuring student work pages, a review page, and a unit test. Each page covers a different pre-algebraic concept or topic with a box on the top explaining the concept and giving an example of how to work it followed by 10-20 student practice problems. Concepts covered include integers, variables, metric measures, formulas, operations, inequalities, properties, exponents, fractions, mixed numbers, decimals, graphing, percents, rational numbers, square roots, the Pythagorean Theorem, probabilities, and much more. An answer key is included in the back with answers to all of the practice problems, reviews, and tests. The overall workbook is very clean and well organized with more practice per topic and less wasted space than the Pre-Algebra (Step-by-Step) workbook. It is comparable to the 100+ series in the number of practice problems, but explanations are better in this workbook. A very complete, easy to use workbook. ~ Megan

     The Student Book (textbook) is the instruction, divided into chapters, then into lessons. Important notes about the curriculum and its use are found in the front of the book. Students will read the lesson in the Student Book and complete the activity page found in the Teacher Guide (sold separately or as part of the Book 2 Set). That’s how easy it is to use this curriculum. Don’t confuse easy-to-use with over-simplified content. After comparing the content of this course with that of Bob Jones, Saxon, Alpha Omega etc., Principles of Mathematics stays with the pack. It covers all pertinent topics for algebra preparation. While there is quite a bit of reading, the language is fairly easy to read and comprehend (conversational). The text is black and white with examples and illustrations, so may not appeal to your more visual learner. Lessons that have recommended calculator use are marked with a calculator symbol. 

    Book 2 is considered the pre-algebra portion of the program, so students need to be competent in basic functions of fractions, decimals, percent, and basic geometry. Book 2 assumes the knowledge of content presented in Book 1; so if you aren’t sure where to begin, have your student take the placement tests available on our website.
