### Algebra 1 curriculum advice

I have just finished writing a LONG article on homeschool algebra 1 recommendations and advice. It took me quite many hours to write and research.

Questions about what to do for algebra 1 have become one of the "frequently asked questions", so I decided to write down something that I can refer people to, from now on.

I realize you may have different opinions and even suggestions for algebra curriculum in homeschool, so if you let me know, I'm willing to look into other possibilities not mentioned in the article.

For the mathematically inclined student this is a wonderful book, and there are also online courses available. (As somebody else put it: the standard books give you the nuts and bolts - AoPS gives you the nuts and bolts and then has you build the Taj Mahal with them.)

Very in-depth on some topics, with only a few "skimmed." In the end, I did find it to be a hybrid of both Algebra 1 and Algebra 2 (as defined by "standard" textbooks for our state)... not quite covering all of either. But the few lacking topics were easily covered by tutorials from purplemath.com and others you have listed on your refence list.

Thanks for all your hard work!
