Math 911: Review

The Introductory Algebra course may be downloaded for free at Math 911.  Topics are categorized  by chapter, section and levels. Within each level, you will find problems that identify the concepts that your students must be familiar with in order to be successful in algebra including word problems and graphs.

I noticed  that the program was pretty "no frills"  in appearance. It is a far cry from other math programs that we use that are more "fun" to look at and to operate.  Because there isn't really any teaching or lessons to speak of, it would be difficult for us to use this as a full program. If a student got a problem wrong, the only way to figure out why they got it wrong would be to study the solution.  The website does have free downloadable PDFs for algebra that teach the concepts, but these teaching helps are not provided for the upper level courses.

However, some students may not need the slick appearance if they are self-motivated and the content itself is quite good.
The content of the program is as follows:
 Step By Step Introductory & Intermediate Algebra Tutorials:
Intro Algebra
Intermediate Algebra
College Algebra

There are also free PDF lessons consisting of:
Intro To Whole Numbers
Addition & Subtraction
Multiplication Factors
Division of Wholes
Intro To The Integers
Multiply Divide Integers
Combine Like Terms

Math 911 Premier Version can be purchased as a USB flash drive, it is regularly $49.95, now $9.95, using code homeschool. There is also a free version so you can try it out first. I think that the price of $49.95 is fair for what you get with the program, which is essentially five high school level math courses.

**Disclaimer:  I was provided with a free download of this program in exchange for an honest review.
