Thanks a lot for the suggestions. I did do a search on the web that led to the 
publisher's site, where I found an online Algebra I book. Although its a great 
idea, it obviously didn't solve my problem. And I appreciate you taking the 
time to search. You're right, those weren't the lessons I needed. (I did get 
excited for a minute, though, because I needed Chapters 6 & 7, and your "find" 
was for lessons 6 & 7, but the wrong chapter!)Thank you for the effort, though!
