Unformatted text preview: Algebra 1 Lecture 1 Video Lectures and Notes by David V. Anderson Click me for video > QuickTime and a decompressor are needed to see this picture. 2 Introduction Welcome to the Stellar Schools course Algebra 1. As in our other courses, Stellar Schools follow a curriculum very similar to the one used by the Hillsdale Academy of Hillsdale, Michigan. In the case of Algebra 1, Hillsdale uses the text: Algebra 1: An Incremental Development, 3 rd Ed. John H. Saxon, Jr. Saxon Publishers, Inc. At Stellar Schools we assign this book as a secondary but required text. You are requested to obtain the Saxon book before continuing with this course. The primary text for Algebra 1 is this set of lecture notes which is provided to you both in hardcopy and digital formats. Our curriculum for Algebra 1 is mostly based on the Saxon text but also includes some additional items that we believe adds clarity to the presentation. In fact, the curriculum for this course (in accordance with the Stellar Schools format we apply to all courses) is defined as the universe of all possible examination questions and answers. All students are expected to master these knowledge items by demonstrating examination scores of 95% and above. In this text we specify these knowledge items in what we call learning concept statements or LCS.

For an example, we show LCS 149 in the display below. Each LCS tells you really all you need to know to study its concept. It specifies the textbook reference- here to a specific Saxon Lesson. That information will help you study the concept. For convenience in record keeping- both the schools and the students- we give each knowledge item a Learning Concept Statement Number. The key aspects to be mastered are contained under Concept Name and Description. Finally, a possible question and its correct answer are shown in the last two columns. To each LCS, there can be many different sub-species questions and answers. The course is designed so students will be able to answer any of these questions if they understand the LCS (and all previous LCS because sometimes a concept builds on items learned earlier). The banks of examination questions will contain far more questions than the number of LCS on which they are based because we will often have several questions for each LCS.
