We use Algebra 1 by John Saxon along with the accompanying Algebra 1 Test Booklet. Algebra 1 presents the principles of algebra in an orderly manner and reviews the concepts regularly. Saxon also provides a solutions manual for the daily lessons, tests to be used throughout the year, and an answer keys for the tests. The Algebra I Syllabus has a day-by-day breakdown of this course along with a variety of teaching resources including Ninth Grade Subject Rubrics, Learning Objectives, and grading charts. This is a 1 year, 1 credit course.
