How We Got Math Relief

"We Are so Excited!"
My son, who has used your Algebra I
and Algebra II courses, just got his first
ACT scores.
His composite was a 28 with a 27 in
mathematics –
And that is for a sophomore with no advanced
math experience.
We can not thank you enough for a wonderful
math program
that more than prepared my son for the
ACT and higher
level mathematics. He knows
Algebra!

"I Was at the Top of My College Algebra
Class."
My name is Faith, and I was a homeschooler
who used
your video series for both Algebra I and
Algebra II.
Your math more than prepared me for College
Algebra.
I was at the top of my class, and my teacher said
that I must have used a "really great
curriculum" in
high school.

"He Can Tutor Others."
Our son has improved in his Algebra to the point
where he can tutor others. This skill would
not have
been possible without your curriculum.

"My Daughter
Now Understands."
This series has been the best I have ever
seen for
math tutoring. You are doing a fabulous job,
and I
can't say enough about how thankful I am to have
found this.
Math has been our tough subject, and I have tried
several algebra programs. My daughter now
completely
understands the lessons.
I am so pleased. Thanks!

"Awarded Scholarship and Earned College
Credit."
After studying Keyboard Enterprises
Algebra I
and Algebra II with Mr. Firebaugh, my son
scored high enough on the SAT to be awarded 6
hours
of college credit in math, including College
Algebra, and a full fouryear academic
scholarship
to Angelo State University.
Mr. Firebaugh's instruction is thorough and
understandable, and requires virtually no parent
assistance.
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
Tapes."
Keyboard Enterprises' Algebra videos made
learning
fun for me. This is an amazing feat
considering that
I greatly disliked the subject before I began
using
these videos. I had been using textbooks
before.
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
very
useful in college.

"Your Format Is Easy
To Understand."
This past spring our daughter took the
standardized
CAT test and scored 16 out of 19 perfect scores.
Three of those perfect scores were in math.
Your format is easy to understand and the
instructor
is clear and easy to follow.
Thanks for all your hard work.

"Finally an Algebra
Course Designed To Go
at the Student's Pace!"
If you are looking for a good, visual math
curriculum that is simple, thorough, and
accompanied
by easytouse workbooks, tests and answer keys,
then the Keyboard Enterprises math series is for
you.
I recommend this often to families looking
for real
help in mathematics.

"Mr. Firebaugh
Is a Great Teacher."
When I first began learning algebra, I hated
it. I
would think of reasons why it is an unnecessary
subject, saying "What do I care about what
'x' is?"
For a year I struggled, loathing it, but
doing it as
my duty to my parents. I didn't understand the
concepts and would get most of the problems
finished, only to find that I had misunderstood a
new rule (or even an old one) and after all
my work,
I had to admit failure again.
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
Enterprises was
just what I needed.
Mr. Firebaugh is a great teacher. He explains
each
new level clearly and we can rewind to catch
something we missed.
Bryan and I did the course together. We
worked out
the lessons with Mr. Firebaugh and wrote out
everything. We enjoyed finding the answer to his
sample problem before he'd finished working
it out!
And as we listened, humor would come out in the
lesson.
Soon I not only had stopped despising
algebra, but
it became one of my favorite academic subjects!
Bryan and I are enthusiastic about doing
Algebra II this year and are deeply
grateful to
Mr. Leonard Firebaugh for his clear, enjoyable
instruction.
I would endorse this course to anyone who has
problems with understanding algebra!

"Mr. Firebaugh's Algebra
Was the Answer to Our Prayers."
We have a wonderful 13yearold son, whom I home
school. We were not able to understand or
learn from
a correspondence manual, found private
tutoring too
expensive, and would have had to wait on a
waiting
list for questions to be answered at a community
college lab.
Then I remembered Mr. Firebaugh's
advertisement.
I was pleasantly surprised when Mr. Firebaugh
answered the phone himself. I could tell he was a
dedicated teacher. He told me that if the program
didn't work we could return it in 30 days.
This was
wonderful news.
The program arrived promptly. My son and his
father
turned into algebra sponges. His father
didn't want
to be in a situation where he could not help,
and he
wanted to be sure our son was learning. Sometimes
they both watch a lesson over and over again. You
don't mind working hard when you know you
will see
progress.
We were relieved that we did not have to
compromise
our son's homeschool education, and we feel
confident that we are providing the best
education.

One Full Year of Algebra Divided into Three Phases

Each phase constitutes about 1012 weeks of
study,
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 standalone
curriculum




Algebra I Course Description

Phase 1  The Basics of Algebra
This first phase covers the major topics and
basic
operations needed to understand algebra. It deals
primarily with equations and factoring, including
the main properties that are necessary to
work with
equations (commutative, associative, and
distributive).
 This phase can be used in a prealgebra
situation
and is currently used as early as 6thgrade
level.
 Many schools do not cover material beyond
this level
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
algebra.
Concepts are covered that apply more heavily
toward
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
crucial to
future studies in mathematics.
 There are several lessons dealing with word
problems, an area which can significantly affect
aptitude tests.
 For students who work slowly, Phases 1 and 2
could
constitute a full year of credit in
Algebra I.
 Students who do not plan to attend
college may
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
geometry.
Phase 3 gives introductory study of graphing,
mostly
straight lines. This topic appears in all future
math courses. Our course has extensive
coverage of
"completing the square" (needed for graphing
curves)
and the quadratic formula. Most Algebra I courses
only touch lightly (if at all) on these two
important concepts.
 We have had several reports of students
entering
calculus and statistics classes in college
with only
our Algebra I course as their background, and
they
have received top grades in those courses.
Purchase
Algebra I.
Algebra II Course Description
This level of algebra is a continuation of
Algebra
I, containing new concepts while reinforcing
topics
from the Algebra I level.
All three phases are needed to complete the
2nd year
of algebra. When completed, the student is
easily able to be highly successful with College
Algebra.
Phase 1
"Basic operations" of advanced algebra.
Phase 2
Heavily emphasizes "word problems" in addition to
advanced topics for higher math.
Phase 3
Quadratic Formula and Functions.
Purchase
Algebra II.




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
need
for additional instruction.
However, we strongly recommend supervision as a
source of motivation (most students tend to
require
encouragement to study mathematics, as well
as other
academic subjects).
2. As a Curriculum Supplement
There are many good programs of study
available from
Christian suppliers, but sometimes students have
difficulty reading a textbook and understanding
mathematical concepts.
Students can then locate corresponding subject
matter on the tapes or DVDs to receive verbal
explanation of
the topic.
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
individualized curriculums.
Boredom and lack of selfmotivation are
probably the
greatest enemies which stand in the path of
success
for these students.
5. As Additional Practice Exercises
There are thousands of sample problems, covering
every type of situation which arises for any
given
concept.
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
knowledge
whatsoever of algebra concepts; prealgebra
is not
required.
 Minimal arithmetic skills are needed.
 Parents do not need to prepare anything.
The course is designed so that the student
can enjoy
individualized instruction.
 The teaching portion on the video tape
averages 15
minutes for each lesson.
 After watching this instructional
presentation, the
student has worksheet assignments which average
3045 minutes.
 If the student has difficulty with a
particular
problem, the supervisor may allow him to view the
solution which is worked out in detail in the
Answer
Key.
 There are quizzes or tests about every seven
lessons. The end of Phase 3 contains a twopart
final exam for the entire course.
·
All three phases are needed to complete the first
course in algebra. Also, all three phases are
needed
for students who plan to attend college.
