Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Is Algebra Simple for Homeschoolers only?
A: No. This program has been set up to teach, test and grade. This makes it very useful to Homeschoolers and other self-contained schooling systems. However, the videos can be easily used as a supplement to a regular public or private school Algebra class. I have found that most students would rather fail than ask questions in class. Algebra Simple provides the answers to these questions.
Q: What is the cost of Algebra Simple?
A: Algebra Simple requests a donation of $25. Please see detailed information at Donate.
Q: Did you write the textbook??
A: The text book is an open source book written by Tyler Wallace. For a free copy of the original book, please go to: http://www.wallace.ccfaculty.org/book/Beginning_and_Intermediate_Algebra.pdf .
(Wallace and ccfaculty are not in any way associated with Algebra Simple.)
The actual book that is used for Algebra Simple is a version of Mr. Wallace's text that has been heavily edited.
Q: May I use a calculator in this course?
A: Calculator use is at the discretion of your "teacher." There are two schools of thought on the use of calculators. I am pro-calculator, but many schools are opposed to them.
Q: May I use a calculator on the SAT, ACT or ASVAB?
A: You may on the SAT and ACT, but the Military (ASVAB) does NOT allow you to use a calculator.
Q: Is Algebra II available?
A: At this time Algebra II is not available. If we receive enough donations, we will have the time and resources to build an Algebra II class.
Q: Do I take the tests online?
