## Volume 5 Overview

**Included:**

270-page paperback book with 36 lessons, 36 worksheets, six chapter tests and one final test

Answer Key in the back of the book with full solutions

****

If your student scores well (B+ or better) on the final test, then one credit for Algebra 1 has been earned.

Topics covered in volume 5 are typically taught in tenth grade, but we don't mention grade level in the books.

Upon purchase, you will receive a password to access a page on our website that contains printable pdf versions of every worksheet in the book.

An older student can complete this book in about three months.

**I'm looking for an Algebra program. Can I start with Volume 5?**

If your student is unclear about linear equations, then start with volume 3. You can skip volume 4, if your student knows the three special triangles and the Pythagorean Theorem, otherwise read volumes 3 - 5 to make it a solid stand-alone algebra curriculum.

**OPTION:******

__ Our Big, Big Bookmark __is an 8 1/2" x 11" sheet that contains hints to all the most easily forgotten math concepts from volumes 1 - 4. So, let's say you're in pre-algebra and you have to divide fractions, but you can't remember if that's when you flip the fraction or not. Just look down at your Big, Big Bookmark and see that you flip the second fraction and then multiply straight across. Available for purchase at our store.

## A TESTIMONIAL FROM LISA

My 16 year old daughter (dealing with depression & anxiety) is about halfway through Volume 5. I want you to know that LMFS's straightforward presentation and supportive instruction to the student has made a HUGE difference in my daughter's mental health and confidence. She completes a lesson every evening and her book is always waiting for me to check first thing in the morning. She seldom misses a problem. She enjoys math now and is also working harder at her other subjects as a result. She has gained confidence that I can detect spreading into other areas of her life, like her interactions with others and how she spends her free time. I can't tell you what an answer to prayer this has been!!!

A few weeks ago I also switched my 12 year old daughter to LMFS. She was struggling with Singapore math and then I switched her to Saxon (which made us both cry). I backed her up all the way to LMFS Volume 1 for a summer review and she, too, is enjoying the program and loves feeling like she is rebuilding her foundation and making steady forward progress.

LMFS has addressed some very important needs in our homeschool and I will continue singing its praises. ~Lisa
