Pre-Algebra Subject Kit (2nd ed.)

Pre-Algebra Subject Kit (2nd ed.)
Pre-Algebra (2nd edition) eases the transition from arithmetic to algebra. Algebraic expressions and linear equations are applied throughout a thorough review of operations on integers, fractions, decimals, percents, and radicals. Students explore relations and functions using equations, tables, and graphs. Chapters on statistics and geometry extend foundational concepts in preparation for high school courses. Problem-solving and real-life uses of math are featured in each chapter. Dominion through Math exercises regularly illustrate how mathematics can be used to manage God's creation to His glory.

Pre-Algebra Subject Kit (2nd ed.) is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent book I have found that this is an excellent source of pre-algebra concepts. The explanations are easy to understand and the cumulative review at the end of each lesson is helpful in reviewing previous lessons.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lengthy lessons, unfair tests While I do feel the actual content of this course is excellent and very challenging with a plethora of word problems and application, the teaching time (non-DL) is far too long, and the tests (non-DL) are unfairly complex and tricky with problems not introduced or studied in the chapters. Teaching the lesson, working the problems, and correcting the work takes 2-3 hours each day, which is far too much time. The teaching itself is often 45 minutes if you follow the TM. Regarding the tests, I can see using slightly different problems than the ones in the exercises, but it is unfair to use problems in a context never seen before or studied that require assimilation of too many new topics at once. My diligent and hard-working student does the part C and Dominion problems and still struggles with some problems on the tests that she has never seen before. I don't feel any further amount of studying would help. Our main two issues with this program are the lengthy lessons and the unfair tests. In discussion with other parents on the FB forum, it appears this is the general consensus, and these issues need to be addressed in the next revision. These two factors are making me reconsider using BJU for the remainder of our math levels, even though I very much like the conceptual teaching and the abundance and types of word problems. The TM could certainly be reformatted to be used more efficiently. Having to follow a paragraph format requires me to highlight what to actually present and emphasize and when to refer to the textbook. These upper level TMs could be reformatted to the same format as the elementary levels, which are so easy to follow. I am able to teach upper level math, but it does take unnecessary time to comb through the paragraphs of information before presenting the lesson. Using a different color for the times when you are to break with the TM and refer to the textbook would be helpful. Using the sentence/bullet format of the elementary lessons would also streamline the presentation. I use non-DL so that I can gauge my student's understanding of the material and move ahead without further examples once that child has grasped the concept. This TM could certainly be reformatted for more efficient presentation of the material. Also, there are a few topics that should be rearranged (e.g., the introduction of sets and types of numbers, which should be moved to the first chapter).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect I really like the convenience of having a 'real' book to work from vs the online e-book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent We are very pleased with the organization of the curriculum. The teacher's edition is very helpful. The quizzes and tests help with accountable. We plan on using the Algebra 1 curriculum next year.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well done. The booklets are put together well and are easy to use. The test questions are challenging but doable.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Difficulty of material Due to the difficulty of the problems, I have to give help. Some of the problems are way too difficult for an 8th grade student. But I love the way the Lord is included in the material.
