My student used Math U See for pre-algebra. Is my student ready for Shormann Algebra 1?

Yes! While there are some gaps between Math-U-See Pre-Algebra and Shormann Algebra 1, the first 25 lessons of Shormann Algebra 1 are the review of pre-algebra, ensuring the student builds a firm foundation for the remainder of the course.

The most important skills for success in Algebra 1 are fractions, decimals, percents, and converting between them. Unlike most other courses, our pre-algebra course, DIVE/Saxon Math 8/7, does an excellent job of developing fluency in these skills. For all students who did not use Math 8/7 for pre-algebra, Shormann Algebra 1 includes ten 5-minute drills to develop fluency in these skills. These drills can be completed along with Shormann Algebra 1.

Graphing Lines Not Taught in Math-U-See

We do teach graphing lines in our pre-algebra course (Math 8/7, 3rd Edition) and in Shormann Algebra 1. However, we would not say that this is required knowledge before starting Shormann Algebra 1. As long as the student has completed pre-algebra and you follow the instructions, the student will have the opportunity to learn these concepts in Shormann Algebra 1.
