**Question from Terrie:**

I have a son using Algebra 1 with the dvd set and I am trying to determine if it is equal to a college Algebra 1? Or, would it take completion of algebra 1 and 2 to equal college algebra 1? Thanks for the help!

**Answer from Dr. Callahan:**

College algebra usually means Algebra II. So in your case, it would be both the Algebra 1 and 2.

Dr. Callahan, if I understand correctly Jacobs Alg 1 and Geometry is for 9th grade according to their website. What material do you recommend for Alg 2/Calc series? How do homeschool students earn credits for the successful completion of Alg1&2, Calc? Thank you.

The particular grades tend to be arbitrary but most do around 9-10 grade for algebra and geometry. For Algebra 2 with Trig and Calculus we provide these courses:

– Algebra 2 with Trig – https://www.askdrcallahan.com/product/algebra-2-with-trig-2/

– Calculus – https://www.askdrcallahan.com/product/calculus-1/

In terms of earning credit — most customers are homeschoolers and they (the parent) provides the credit when the course is completed. Those used in a public or private school setting make arrangements with the school first to determine how credit is applied. While our courses provide online video to teach the material – we do not do the grading and administration. That is up to the teacher and/or parent.
