  2. Hello! I have done an extensive search online and cannot find any samples from Foerster's Algebra I textbook. If anyone can help me with a link (or selected pages copied from your own book), it would be greatly appreciated. TIA, Pamela
  3. I've been out of the loop for a while since I've just been using what my 1st child used for math. My 2nd child isn't understanding algebra 1 at all. She doesn't have dyscalulia, but just simply is in over her head. We've used grades K-6 grades CLE Sunrise math (did ok, but wanted more detail), 7th & part of 8th grade Teaching Textbooks (didn't like online), and remainder of 8th - now part of 9th grade Chalk Dust math with no luck 3 months into algebra 1. Every year we are just not getting it 100%. We repeated pre-algebra. We are now in Chalk Dust Algebra 1 and getting nowhere. There are n

    Alg. 1, 2011: DVDs with automatic grading Answer key and Tests Spiral-bound textbook no writing, corners slightly turned up on answer key


  5. My daughter does very well in every subject and is advanced in all but math. She is at level in Math, but ahead in Science. She wants to go to vet school in the future and is starting Biology as an 8th grader. The coop we're in won't allow her into Chemistry as a 9th grader unless she is has taken or is taking Algebra 2. So, we are speeding through Pre-Algebra this summer to try and prepare her for Algebra 1 in 8th grade. My dilemma is that I want her to enjoy Math like she does everything else, and I want her to have a thorough understanding of Algebra 1 before moving on to Algebra 2 while no
  6. Read this in a city daily while waiting for library to open. Something to think about if choosing B&M for high school. A few issues were raised in the article. "The problem lies in the kinds of students enrolled in Algebra I in eighth and ninth grade. Students who take algebra in middle school are on a more rigorous pathway through math classes, and are able to master concepts in the class quickly. Students enrolled in ninth-grade algebra, on the other hand, are all performing at varying levels of math proficiency, Sarraf said. That means one high school algebra class might have studen
  7. Here's my dilemma: 9th grader starting Algebra 1 and I am trying to decide b/w Saxon Algebra 1 and CLE Algebra 1. I realize CLE goes no further and there is no geometry. The draw is that CLE workbook style looks appealing and the reviews all good and much cheaper than Saxon. So what's the problem you say? Well the attraction of Saxon is that I am looking to go to Saxon for Algebra 2 and beyond. I heard that the geometry credit doesn't start until Algebra 2 and on into Advanced Math. So I am thinking to get his geometry credit it won't matter if we do another vendor for Algebra 1...ri
  8. For those of you who have used Foerster's algebra for Algebra I, did you finish all 14 chapters? If not, how far did you get? Is some of it reviewed in Algebra II?
  9. My daughter is using Derek Owens for Algebra 1. I have worked problem #3 on 7.9 more than 3 times, and I "think" the answer key is incorrect. Does anyone here know if there is an errata sheet available? Is anyone willing to work the problem and tell me what you get for an answer? TIA ps. I get 2 over x cubed y cubed.
  10. Can you help me pick an algebra course that my daughter can possibly complete in the next 4 months? It will be her only course work over the summer. I can help her, but she is so resistant to sitting down with me to do the lessons, I am looking at something she can do more on her own, like Tabletclass or Teaching Textbooks. She has gotten through the first five chapters of Jacob's, and has done ok with it. She's not a great math student, (the first half of this year was spent reviewing pre-algebra) and she puts a lot more time and effort into her other assignments. I want her to take an onlin
  11. I will put my daughters schedule below, but I am just stuck. We made it through lesson 78 in Saxon Algebra 1 last year. This year I was hoping to finish it and then start alg. 2 Saxon. Here is the problem. She hates it. Algebra should be fun or at least comfortable IMHO. I have a math degree, it is not that I don't know the material backwards forward. If we decide to use some other book, we will be following the schedule of Alg. 1 in 9th, Geometry in 10th, Algebra 2 in 11th and trig. in 12th. Will she be ready for the sat or psat on this schedule? Also she doesn't want to "start over"
  12. My daughter is quickly moving through LoF Pre-Algebra and is about ready to move to Algebra. There are 3 books listed on the Life of Fred website, Lof Beginning Algebra, Fred's Home Companion Beginning Algebra, and Zillions of Practice Problems Beginning Algebra. It appears that Stan recommends getting the first two. Have you found a need for Zillions of Practic Problems? She has done well with Pre-Algebra thus far with the exception that sets tend to trip her up. TIA Sarah
  13. My ds is 1/2 way through MUS Algebra 1. He got sidetracked by his academic load in other courses and fell behind in keeping up with the math curriculum. But he's on his way now. At his current pace he should finish in early June. Now that we're into it, we're both feeling a pull in a different direction. The Math U See text doesn't offer the depth he's looking for each week. He loved using Singapore and liked the way of looking at everything through a different lens! I'm thinking about having him finish MUS Algebra I, but he wants to go through something quickly to fill-in any
  14. I am ready to make the switch from MUS Algebra over to Foerster's Algebra 1 and use the Math Without Borders dvd along with the textbook. Which textbook did you use? (An ISBN number would be appreciated.) On the Math Without Borders site, it states that you can use this book or earlier versions. I will most likely purchase the newer version. I plan to do many of the problems alongside my son. Do I need both the Teacher Manual AND the Solutions Manual? If so, what are the ISBN numbers for these texts that will match up with the most recent Foerster's Algebra 1 book? Do I purchase them
  15. It has been brought to my attention that many middleschoolers are taking Algebra I. Is this seriously the norm? I have read materials that sway one from letting their children take Algebra until high school. Dh and I have talked about this and we tend to agree... I have a friend that is a math teacher and her children used Saxon. She said that they did not do well on the ACT and that they took Algebra I in 8th grade.... What are your thoughts on this? I know some children are math oriented and NEED to be challenged. I am referring to our 'regular' children. ;) By the way my dc will
  16. My 8th grader is using TT Algebra I, although he "uses" it in that he reads the lesson, we usually do the practice exercises together, and then he does the problems. He will not watch the lectures or examples on CD. (Yes, I realize this defeats the purpose of TT). So, he's struggling with chapter 4 or 5, simplifying equations. If he sees: 17 - 4(2x + 10) He wants to turn it into 13 - 2x + 10 and then into 23 - 2x and then he'll still sometimes want to make that = 25. It really throws him when they do a "simplify this expression" without giving him the = side of things. Not that h
  17. I have a daughter that is home schooled and a son in public middle school. The school uses different text books for Algebra 1 -- one text book for advanced students and another for regular math students. The advanced track will use Foerster's Algebra I book next year while regular will use Larson's Algebra 1 Concepts & Skills book. When I asked one of the math teachers about this, she said that "Foerster's is great for calculation-type problems but not as strong in critical thinking problems." Do those of you using Foerster's Algebra 1 book agree with that assessment??? I've
  18. Up until yesterday, I had planned to use Chalkdust and LoF with my oldest son. I know those programs are "solid." I'm comfortable with them. After some back and forth with some people on the accelerated learner board, people who know the various math programs gave me some feedback, and I went back to revisit some selections, and suggestions. I don't want TT. My son is "good" at Math, shows interest in technical/technological fields, and at this point he needs something a bit "more." The Dolciani Pre-Algbera course was a nightmare. Neither of us liked the text, examples, explanatio
  19. Seriously I am DEEPLY concerned my daughter's SAT scores will be plummeted by her inability to grasp Algebra. I'm INCREDIBLY comfortable with math & Algebra. My DH is extremely math capable, having gone onto extensive math classes throughout his college career. She simply isn't grasping it. More than that, it takes us about 6-8 LESSONS (not problems) before she can grasp a new concept and then I don't feel she's understanding the "why and wherefore" but just doing rote math without any true comprehension. She constantly must go back and look up formulas. I'm concerned. I'm
  20. Which is the best algebra 1 curriculum for a concrete thinker? Ds12 is just not an abstract thinker at all. And he struggles with math. He is not (at this point in time) headed into a mathy career field, but he will be going to a four year college, so I do want him to take algebra 1 in 8th grade. TIA,
  21. We're in chapter 5 of Larson's elementary/intermediate algebra book (planning to stop at chapter 10 this year) My ds is getting more and more confused by Algebra...entering a "can't see the forest for the trees' muddle in which he gets so caught up in rules and formulas that he's losing sight of why he's doing what he's doing. He's not doing badly with Larson--gets low A's or high B's on most of his chapter tests--but I get the feeling it's all not clicking and that he's forgetting what he's learned as soon as he's done with the chapter (though, again, he did fine on the cumulative 1-3 t
