**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
