  • Bible

    Sunrise Edition – Christ in the Old Testament

    1 Credit

    Engage students’ hearts, not just their intellect! From the Garden to the tabernacle, to the return from exile, Bible 9 is a study of the glimpses of Christ we see in the Old Testament.

    Each lesson directs the student to read a portion of Scripture and provides commentary that explains the passage. Exercises help students interact with and remember what they read. Vocabulary sections explain KJV language as needed, and Bible memory work is included. Some exercises require Strong’s Exhaustive Bible Concordance (print or digital) and Baker’s Bible Atlas. All Christian Light Bible courses use the King James Version. The course includes Bible memory work.

    This course consists of ten LightUnit workbooks and two Answer Keys. The optional Teacher’s Guide includes helpful teaching resources but does not include answers.

  • Math

    Sunrise Edition Algebra I

    1 Credit

    Algebra isn’t easy, but it shouldn’t intimidate students. Sunrise Algebra 1 helps students succeed by using the same methodology of incremental teaching and continuous review found in elementary Sunrise Math. Students will appreciate the reference numbers after each direction line that indicate the lesson where the concept was previously taught. “Math in History” notes spark students' interest and broaden their knowledge.

    Algebra 1 is available in two formats: a textbook or 10 LightUnits. The exercises are the same in both the LightUnits and the textbook. The textbook is more colorful than the LightUnits. View the course scope and sequence.

    Textbook Study Method

    The textbook requires students to work the exercises on a separate paper. It is easier to refer to previous lessons using the textbook. The quiz/test pack must be purchased separately for the textbook study.

    LightUnit Study Method

    The LightUnit study option allows students to work exercises directly in the LightUnits. The quizzes and tests are included in the LightUnits and do not need to be ordered separately.

    Solution Keys

    The solution keys are the same for both study methods. They feature a complete list of steps for each problem to make it easy to find errors in students’ work.
