A valuable resource for students and the adults who support their learning.
Mr. Dorey's Algebra Handbook
for Common Core Algebra I.
Welcome to Dorey Publications and thank you for your interest in Mr. Dorey's Algebra Handbook.
My name is Kevin Dorey, owner of Dorey Publications and author of Mr. Dorey's Algebra Handbook. I teach Common Core Algebra I at Pittsford-Sutherland High School, located in the suburbs of Rochester, New York. When I began teaching Common Core Algebra I, I found myself in search of a resource that would support my student's learning; a place where they could turn when questions arise and that would have everything all in one place. When I was unable to find quite the right thing, I set out to put together my own collection of explanations and examples that would become Mr. Dorey's Algebra Handbook.
Today, my students use their Algebra Handbook often and it has become an invaluable resource for them. I teach them how to use a math book (you would be surprised at how many don't know how to!) by having them look things up and preview topics at the start of class. I sometimes ask students to use a particular example as a model for solving a warm-up question or to review an important concept. In our class notes, we make note of which page of the handbook relates to the day's lesson and, when questions arise, my first response is an inquiry as to whether the student has consulted their Algebra Handbook. Typically students learn that they are able to find the answers to their own questions and that they don't need to see me after all. Resource teachers, parents and others who support our students have similarly found Mr. Dorey's Algebra Handbook to be a valuable resource.
I invite you to explore Mr. Dorey's Algebra Handbook and consider how it can be of use to your students or your child as they learn and work toward mastering Common Core Algebra 1.
We welcome your questions and feedback!
