I've been teaching math for 10 years and tutoring longer. Twice I've been awarded teacher of the year and I've been very involved in determining the accreditation of other high schools. I've seen a lot of algebra texts. This is the best text book from which I have ever taught. It gives excellent explanation for the student and the ancillary materials available to the teacher are great. It's a total winner. No complaints. I believe in this book so much that I just purchased a class set, with my own funds, for my son's private school.

The Algebra 1 book by Larson (et alia) is outstanding. Please note: The book on this Amazon page is Algebra 1, Volume 1. You also need to buy Volume 2 (Algebra 1; Concepts and Skills, Volume 2), if you want the whole course. As an alternative, you can buy the combined course in one book (McDougal Littell Algebra 1: Applications, Equations, Graphs).

This book is very easy to read and understand. I would guess that it is written at the fifth grade level.

It is obvious to me that the designers of this textbook employed a systems approach to (1) meticulously identify all of the knowledge and skills required in an Algebra 1 course; (2) translate these into learning objectives for the course; (3) systematically identify course prerequisites (the starting point for the course); (4) specify final course outcome (the end point for the course); (5) sequence and repeat training to optimize learning and retention; and (6) design evaluation measures to ensure that each student has met the course objectives. In addition to systematically developing math skills, the book also ensures mastery of associated vocabulary terms (Key Words), as well as skills in the use of graphs and calculators.

Algebra 1 is a very challenging course to teach. I think every school district in America requires Algebra 1 for graduation. There is a huge, huge diversity among the students taking this course. Some might take this course in the sixth grade, while others might take it in the tenth grade.

The complete process was good, book arrived in great condition in timely manner, but I did not pay attention during purchase process and this turned to be only volume 1. In order to get complete curriculum you would need volume 2 also. Other sellers had this as comeplete book ( including volume1 and volume 2 in same book).

As a parent from a public-school background making the transition to homeschool my teenager, I have found this book and the teacher's edition to be just what I needed. I chose this over both Saxon and Abeka, which are popular courses used in private schools. Ron Larson and his team have done a wonderful job clearly explaining the concepts, having plenty of practice problems, and what is more, giving practical application examples and keeping the interest of the students. Also the flow of the concepts is easy to follow. I have not had to deal with the "Why do I have to learn this?" question kids so often bring up. We made it through the first semester without the teacher's edition, but since it contains the test question answers I would recommend to purchase it as well. Both books were very reasonably priced as used books - please note the new book prices are extremely inflated. This book is useful for self-study as well. I had not studied algebra since 1985, and I had no problem re-learning everything I needed to teach my daughter.

I'm an adult re-learning what teens are expected to know. While not a naturally math-savvy person, this book is easy to read and learn. I'm quickly gaining the knowledge I wish I had learned in high school. I check in with a tutor periodically, but mostly am re-teaching myself from the book. My tutor recommended this book.

I bought this book from Amazon Marketplace for my 10-year-old son who wants to teach himself basic algebra. This book serves the purpose well. It explains the concepts clearly and thoroughly. With lots of examples and exercises, this book is great for self study.

I am trying to review my basic algebra skills and bought this textbook. I am glad that I was able to find it used. It has some pretty good explanations. My only criticism is that most of the problems are not very challenging. I see that this book is used in some charter schools and I am a little concerned that the students are working on problems that are at most mildly challenging.

I have two other algebra 1 books and those have more challenging problems which allow you to apply concepts learned and go to the next level.
