After studying Keyboard Enterprises
and Algebra II with Mr. Firebaugh, my son
scored high enough on the SAT to be awarded 6
of college credit in math, including College
Algebra, and a full four-year academic
to Angelo State University.
Mr. Firebaugh's instruction is thorough and
understandable, and requires virtually no parent
As a homeschool veteran of 14 years, Keyboard
Enterprises Algebra stands out as one of our most
successful investments in curriculum.

"I Disliked Math
Before I Used These
Keyboard Enterprises' Algebra videos made
fun for me. This is an amazing feat
I greatly disliked the subject before I began
these videos. I had been using textbooks
The videos are not only extremely understandable,
but interesting as well. When I had completed the
series, I came away with wonderful algebra grades
and a great understanding of algebra that was
useful in college.

Then my mom ordered a new way to learn algebra
— on video! We (my brother and I) had never
had a video course before. Keyboard

One Full Year of Algebra
Divided into Three Phases
Each phase constitutes about 10-12 weeks of
or roughly 1/3 of the school year.
(See "Algebra I Course Description" below.)
Each phase comes complete with:
Nearly 50 video lessons
50 assignments and tests
50 answer and solutions keys
Approx. 250 pages of instructional material
Everything you need for a stand-alone
Algebra I Course Description
Phase 1 - The Basics of Algebra
This first phase covers the major topics and
operations needed to understand algebra. It deals
primarily with equations and factoring, including
the main properties that are necessary to
equations (commutative, associative, and
- This phase can be used in a pre-algebra
and is currently used as early as 6th-grade
- Many schools do not cover material beyond
in an entire year.
Phase 2 - Continuation of the Basics
Additional concepts are presented in this second
phase to supplement the
basics. These topics are not as common, but are
needed to fully understand the subject of
Concepts are covered that apply more heavily
future studies in geometry, trigonometry, and
calculus. This includes extensive work with
fractions in equations and a large number of
operations with square roots, which are
future studies in mathematics.
- There are several lessons dealing with word
problems, an area which can significantly affect
- For students who work slowly, Phases 1 and 2
constitute a full year of credit in
- Students who do not plan to attend
terminate studies at the end of Phase 2.
Phase 3 - Advanced Topics
This third phase provides material which prepares
the student for additional work in mathematical
subjects including graphing and coordinate
Phase 3 gives introductory study of graphing,
straight lines. This topic appears in all future
math courses. Our course has extensive
"completing the square" (needed for graphing
and the quadratic formula. Most Algebra I courses
only touch lightly (if at all) on these two
- We have had several reports of students
calculus and statistics classes in college
our Algebra I course as their background, and
have received top grades in those courses.
Algebra II Course Description
This level of algebra is a continuation of
I, containing new concepts while reinforcing
from the Algebra I level.
All three phases are needed to complete the
of algebra. When completed, the student is
easily able to be highly successful with College
"Basic operations" of advanced algebra.
Heavily emphasizes "word problems" in addition to
advanced topics for higher math.
Quadratic Formula and Functions.
Five Ways To Use Each Phase
1. As a Core Curriculum
The tapes can be used either with or without a
teacher; the course is comprehensive, without
for additional instruction.
However, we strongly recommend supervision as a
source of motivation (most students tend to
encouragement to study mathematics, as well
2. As a Curriculum Supplement
There are many good programs of study
Christian suppliers, but sometimes students have
difficulty reading a textbook and understanding
Students can then locate corresponding subject
matter on the tapes or DVDs to receive verbal
3. As a Tutoring Tool
When a student becomes confused and seems "lost,"
these tapes are an excellent resource for the
comprehension of algebra concepts.
4. As a Means of Variety
This is particularly needed for students who use
Boredom and lack of self-motivation are
greatest enemies which stand in the path of
for these students.
5. As Additional Practice Exercises
There are thousands of sample problems, covering
every type of situation which arises for any
Every exercise is accompanied by a detailed
solution, helping the student to trace the steps
that are required to get the answer.
Additional Information on Algebra I
- It is assumed that the student has no
whatsoever of algebra concepts; pre-algebra
- Minimal arithmetic skills are needed.
- Parents do not need to prepare anything.
The course is designed so that the student

minutes for each lesson.
- After watching this instructional
student has worksheet assignments which average
- If the student has difficulty with a
problem, the supervisor may allow him to view the
solution which is worked out in detail in the
- There are quizzes or tests about every seven
lessons. The end of Phase 3 contains a two-part
final exam for the entire course.
All three phases are needed to complete the first
course in algebra. Also, all three phases are
for students who plan to attend college.
