Use Math-U-See’s four step approach and try out an example lesson from the Algebra 1 level.

Step 1: Watch the video and review the material in the sample PDF below.

Step 2: Present the concept to your child using the build, write and say method.

Step 3: Have your student practice the concept using the sample PDF below.

Step 4: Evaluate their level of mastery and if ready move on to the next lesson.20

Each lessons A, B, and C pages are used to teach the current lessons concept. The lettered lesson pages that come after those are for systematic review.
