**DID THE STUDENT SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETE A PRE-ALGEBRA COURSE?**

No: See: Student failed or didn't finish Pre-Algebra

Yes: See below.

**STUDENT SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETED PRE-ALGEBRA, BUT FAILEDÂ SAXON ALGEBRA 1**

Dr. Shormann recommends these students re-take Algebra 1 using Shormann Algebra 1 with Integrated Geometry

**FAQ: Why do you recommend Shormann instead of Saxon?**

- Shormann Algebra 1 earns 1/2 credit of geometry (Saxon only has 1/3)
- Has interactive assignments with auto-grading and video solutions that make learning faster and easier
- Provides better preparation for Shormann Algebra 2, which earns the remaining 1/2 credit of geometry, teaches every concept on the PSAT, SAT, and ACT, as well as the CLEP College Algebra exam (can earn 3 college credits).

**FAQ: If I repeat Algebra 1 with Shormann Math, can I skip some of the lessons?**

No. Shormann Algebra 1 includes all the concepts required to earn 1/2 credit of geometry, technology applications, computer math, basic calculus, non-standard solution concepts, and over 100 practice problems from the PSAT, SAT, and ACT. To ensure students develop mastery and fluency, Dr. Shormann recommends starting with lesson 1 and completing all the lessons.

**FAQ: If my student already took Algebra 1, then takes Shormann Algebra 1 & 2, how do I list them on my transcript?**

Upon completion of Shormann Algebra 1 & 2, students earn 1 credit each of Geometry, Algebra 1, and Algebra 2. If using a Subject Transcript, simply list these credits in the Math section. If using a traditional transcript that lists credits by year, list the original Algebra 1 course when it was taken, list Shormann Algebra 1 as Geometry, and list Shormann Algebra 2 as Algebra 2. To assign the grade for the Geometry credit, use the average of the grade for Shormann Algebra 1 and 2. Learn More: Transcripts & Credits
