At the end of the questionnaire, you will be provided with a recommendation. If you have questions, please contact our Sales team.
Are there chapters or modules entirely on fractions, decimal numbers, and/or ratios and percent?
If not divided into chapter/modules, are addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division covered for fractions and/or decimal numbers?
If YES, where are integers (negative numbers) covered? Are they covered towards the beginning of the course and then included in the chapters on fractions, decimal numbers, and ratios and percent?
If NO, are any of these topics covered?
US to US Conversions
Probability
Constructing linear equations or inequalities in two variables
Point-slope form or slope-intercept form of an equation
Functions and Function notation
Systems of linear equations or inequalities
Factoring polynomial expressions
Radicals (any topic other than evaluating square roots)
Solving quadratic equations
Rational expressions
If YES, are any of these topics covered?
Functions and Function notation
Point-slope form or slope-intercept form of an equation
A whole chapter/module on factoring expressions including solving equations by factoring
Systems of linear equations or inequalities
Radicals, including cube roots, rationalizing denominators, rational exponents, or solving equations with radicals
Solving quadratic equations
Rational expressions
If NO, are any of these topics covered?
Complex numbers
Systems of Linear Equations in Three Variables
Matrices
Determinants and Cramer’s Rule
Algebra and/or Composition of Functions
Exponential and Logarithmic Functions
Conic Sections
Sequences, Series, and the Binomial Theorem
If YES, are solving equations covered in detail?
This means that students begin by solving equations of the form ax = c and x + b = c. Normally at least one or two chapters will be devoted to this topic.
Is there a whole chapter or module on geometry?
If NO, are solving systems of equations covered in multiple lessons?
Are there lessons for each of the three methods (solving by graphing, solving by substitution, solving by addition/elimination)?
Will this textbook be used for multiple courses?
