Is Algebra Nation really free for me?
Yes! If you’re an Algebra 1 student in Michigan, Algebra Nation is absolutely free for you!
How is Algebra Nation different from other resources?
Algebra Nation’s videos break down each featured problem and allow you to select your own Study Expert, so you can move at a pace and with a teaching style that works for you. And, with your accompanying workbook, you can also follow along with each problem. If you get stuck, you can ask questions on the interactive Wall and, if you want extra practice before a test, you can use the Test Yourself! Practice Tool, too! No other tool offers such comprehensive, standards aligned materials to support all kinds of learners.
