What to use for 8th grade Algebra 1

Recommended Posts

my 7th grade dd is doing Chalkdust Pre-Algebra this year. She has done pretty good. Not spectacular, but average. I am trying to figure out Algebra for next year. I have narrowed down to these options:


Lial's Introductory Algebra - I have all the Lial books w/DVT all the way through Pre-Calc.


Foersters Algebra - I would probably buy the dvd's from Math Without Borders. Can anyone who has used these tell me if they were helpful?


Chalkdust Algebra 1 - would buy these the cheap way, not through CD. We used the dvds with Pre-Algebra and they worked well.


I am considering trying to find the Foerster's and Chalkdust book and comparing them to Lials.


Any thoughts would be helpful.
