    Algebra 1 textbooks are basically designed to meet the needs of ALL Algebra 1 classes, basic through Honors. Companies used to do this in order to meet the needs of California and Texas, the largest two public school entities that purchased books. If you look at their “pacing guides” you will see that not all topics in a textbook are expected to be covered by most classes. Even GT and Honors classes may not cover everything, so don’t feel like you need to “cover the book”. Without a doubt, one CANNOT dig deep if ALL sections of a textbook are taught.
