Sorry so late with this reply. I haven't been active on this board. I chanced upon your question weeks ago and am just now getting to respond. You are probably finished with Chapter 6!
I teach math using the Foerster's Algebra II Book. For word problems, do you mean, for example, the problems about pH and log tables in Chapter 6-10? I do some of those in my class, in particular, I love the log table problem. I just polled the other teachers and one said she did only did those in her honors course.
I could go on. And on and on. If you have another student you need to use the book for or if you just want peace of mind for last year I would be happy to go through it and let you know what we cover in my class.
