Good Math Students
Because TT Pre-Algebra is fairly weak, there are some gaps between Teaching Textbooks Pre-Algebra and Shormann Algebra 1. However, a good math student, who knows their multiplication/division tables and completed TT Pre-Algebra with an 85 or higher, can fill these gaps by completing the Fraction/Decimal/Percent Drills. Also, the first 25 lessons of Shormann Algebra 1 have some review of the missing pre-algebra concepts, ensuring the student builds a firm foundation for the remainder of the course. Keep in mind, the student may need additional days to complete some of these lessons.
Struggling or Reluctant Math Students
We recommend using Shormann Pre-Algebra. However, you can also try one of the following options:
- Option 1: Complete the Algebra 1 Prep Drills, then take this Placement Test. If the score is 80% or higher, the student is ready for Algebra 1. If below 80%, follow Option 2 or 3.
- Option 2: If the student use Saxon 8/7 third edition, try the Remediation Plan
- Option 3: Retake Pre-Algebra using Shormann Prealgebra Self-Paced eCourse
