Algebra Teachers: Supplement Your Algebra Curriculum with Worksheets and Videos Guaranteed to Help Your Students Succeed!

Are you an Algebra teacher who...

is exhausted and tired from spending endless hours creating your own Algebra Worksheets?

has trouble finding examples and homework problems to supplement your curriculum?

could use a sequential set of video tutorials to supplement your one-on-one tutoring program?

If you can answer "Yes" to ANY of the questions above, then I have GREAT news for you.

How Can I Help You?

My name is Karin Hutchinson, and hopefully you've had a chance to peruse Algebra-class.com. I am the sole creator of this site, and my ultimate goal is to help ALL students find success with Algebra.

After teaching for ten years, I decided to stay home and devote my time and energy to my darling girls; however I quickly found out how much I missed teaching, helping students, and seeing the smile on their faces when all of sudden they "got it".

You know that feeling - it's that "Aha" moment that makes teaching so rewarding!

So, in order to continue my passion for teaching, I created Algebra-Class and the experience has been amazing because I am now able to help students all over the world.

Although, I don't always get to see the "Aha" moments, I definitely read about them in emails.

I Still Love Teaching ...

I began tutoring Algebra 1 when my first daughter was just six months old. I couldn't wait to start teaching again.

I realized as soon as I started tutoring (which was in a completely differnt school district than where I taught), that students were struggling because they were missing a solid math foundation.

As teachers, we all know that students must have that solid foundation that builds year after year. Those who don't have the foundation, struggle year after year.

As I helped my students go back and build that foundation, their grades improved, as well as their love for math!

And.... I learned something else!

A lot of my students struggles was with the order in which topics were being taught. One week they were working on solving equations and the next week something completely different, like probability.

They never had a chance to continue building on that foundation, as they jumped around from concept to concept.

I know that some schools call this "spiraling", but it's not a method that I endorse. If feel that this is where we are creating gaps in our students' learning.

So... I've Created a "No Gaps" Algebra Program Just For Teachers

When I decided to sit down and tackle my own Algebra curriculum, I knew that I had to create a curriculum that builds a solid foundation for our students.

Algebra Class does just that! Each unit is studied extensively before moving on to the next unit.

And... even better, each unit builds on the previous unit. So, as students leave Algebra 1, they have a strong, solid foundation of Algebra skills!

How Can You Use Algebra Class?

If you teach in a district that does not have a solid curriculum, you can use this curriculum from beginning to end and your students will have completed an entire year of Algebra 1!

This curriculum includes everything you will need, including video tutorials, notes worksheets, practice problems, step by step answer keys, formative assessments, quizzes, unit tests, a mid-term, and final exam.

If you have a set curriculum, then you can supplement your curriculum with the materials in Algebra Class.

The video tutorials may give you other ideas for how to each a concept, or they can be used for individual study. The worksheets are available for classwork or homework purposes, and the quizzes and tests are available for additional assessment information.

Algebra Class is a great addition to any Algebra curriculum!

Here's What You Will Get from the Online Algebra Class Program

  • Teach your students how to solve any linear equation in one variable using my unique, step-by-step "Solving Equations Organizer"

  • Special strategies on how to "break apart" word problems so that you can write an equation and solve the problem with no frustrations!

  • Video tutorials that can be used with the whole class or with individual students. This is also great for the "flipped classroom" approach.

  • Practice worksheets for every lesson that can be used for classwork or homework assignments. Just think... no more spending time creating worksheets for homework!

  • A LOT of real world problems that are authentic and meaningful to students. These problems will challenge students to think critically and apply their knowledge!

  • Quizzes, tests, mid-term, and final exam that can be used to ensure that students are building a strong foundation!

  • A step by step answer key that allows to you quickly check students' work.

  • Easy access to all lessons. They are categorized by unit, so you be able to quickly find the lesson you are teaching.

How Does The Online Algebra Class Work For Students?

  • You will log in to the E-course from any computer that you choose.
  • Students will start by watching a video lesson. Each video explains the concept in "bite size pieces". Through several examples, they are guided step by step through the process.
  • Students are also given a pre-designed "notes worksheet" to take notes on as they watch the video. In this way, they will have notes to refer back to when completing their practice problems.
  • Students will then have ample practice problems to complete in order to fully master each skill.
  • Each set of practice problems ends with a small formative assessment to make sure that they've mastered the skill.
  • The BEST part is that you will have step-by-step solutions to every single problem! You will never have to spend time trying to figure out where your students made their mistake.
  • If you are using this online algebra class as your only curriculum (for home schooling or teaching purposes), I've also included chapter quizzes, tests, and a mid-term and final exam. (Yes - with step-by-step solutions!)
  • Click here to download our sample lesson "Compound Inequalities". This document contain the notes worksheet, practice problems with mini assessment at the end, and the step by step answer key. Every lesson in the course is set up exactly the same way!

So... What Units Are Included in This Algebra Program?

I know you are wondering if this program will cover the units that you are teaching.

Below is a list of all the units and the lessons contained in the units. If you are using this as a curriculum, you can see that this Algebra Course contains a very thorough study of Algebra. If you are using this as a supplement to your curriculum, you will find many individual lessons guaranteed to suit your needs.

One teacher says...

I simply love your work! I teach Algebra I, Algebra 2, and Geometry at a charter school in California for at-risk youth. I have small classes of twelve, which is very helpful with this population.

I stumbled across your site when I was desperately looking for curriculum to use in my classroom. Our company got rid of its math books and had some relatively new, inexperienced, and ambitious teachers get together in June 2015 and write the math curriculum for all the subjects I teach.

It's horrible, but it's all we have available to use now. I paid the membership fee out of my own pocket to get your lessons and worksheets on Algebra I and Algebra 2 (when do you think the complete course will be done? Lol!).

Your work is a breath of fresh air and makes so much sense in the order of topics covered and the specific concepts taught. (In our new curriculum, the authors have us teach quadratic equations before learning about polynomials. It makes no sense to me.

I love your videos (I plan to play them and walk the room to make sure students are always on task). I love your worksheets...you evidently put a lot of thought into the different types of problems the students need to know and also the types that might be a little tricky for them.

I feel such a sense of relief, knowing that I don't have to rely on our school's "homemade" curriculum. I have been watching every video and taking the notes, as if I were a student. I am logging down the length of each video in order to make sure I have plenty of time during the class period to play all of them.

I can't help gushing about the tremendous quality of your work...it is a godsend to me. I can't wait to try it out!

Thank You!


Another says...

It's been a week since my purchase and I am absolutely thrilled with your material.

The word problems are fantastic. I used some of your compound inequality word problems in class and presented them on the whiteboard.

I showed the content with the other two eighth grade math teachers and each of them in turn purchased your materials.

What a great bargain!!! Thanks again for your hard work. Everything is organized beautifully.
