Hello, I've been asked to teach some small co-op math classes next year. This year I'm teaching Geometry (Jacobs) and in the past have taught Algebra 1 (Holt). I love the Jacob's Geometry. The Holt, it's pages are busy but it has some good points, too. Ages ago I used Foerster with my son for Algebra I and II but I hardly remember it and the books are not in my personal library any more. I'm looking for text recommendations for Pre-Algebra, Algebra, Algebra II, and Pre-Calc/Trig. I had originally thought to use Jacob's Algebra I since I like the Geometry so much, but now I'm wondering whether consistency in all the classes (except geometry) would be a better idea and if so, what text? I did get my hands on some Lial's (how do you pronounce that, by the way?) but only the Beginning Algebra, Intermediate Algebra, and Pre-Calculus with Limits, not the Pre-Algebra. They were $4 per book so I'm not heavily invested here, they mostly quite old. I haven't had a chance to evaluate them yet. If I do use Jacobs for both Algebra I and Geometry, what do you think would be a good Pre-Algebra, Algebra II, and Pre-cal? Do you think consistency is important? Thank you for your input, I really appreciate your experience and your comments. Sandra p.s. I'm sure my sig line is very out of date.
My son's in public high school,a math lover and straight A+ grader and would like to strengthen more and advance his math skills.Usually,he's getting help with this YouTube channel The organic chemistry tutor.(lf anyone knows any other most useful free videos channel then please let me know for Algebra 2 and Geometry course). He's looking for self paced,rigorous and some practice problems course so he has narrowed down the search with these choices: Homeschoolconnectons: Recorded course: Forester Algebra 2, Parts One and Two ----How many practice problems are in each section of a unit usually? Mr. D Maths How many practice problems are in each section of a unit usually? https://coolmathguy.com/course/algebra-2 How many practice problems are in each section of a unit usually? Do we have to buy text books for all these courses? Would there be Solution Manual for these courses? ls the getting instructor access for grading and tutoring beneficial for this course?How does tutoring and grading work in self paced courses? Are the tutors available by email or any other source if the student will have some confusions during the coursework? Could I get some experiences of those who have used either/or or all three of these resources?Which one you prefer and why? I'm interested in the rigorous and stem career self paced Algebra 2.Geometry, Pre calculus and Calculus courses? lf anyone has experience with any one of these or any other even Summer intensive Math courses, then kindly let me know that how much time would he need to watch videos and practice for each day as he is enrolled in full time school and already has a load of full time six courses this semester. I need to know if the price is worth it with your feedback. Thx!
For anyone that has used Tablet Class math for Algebra 2, does anyone have any suggestions for ways in which the material can be compacted down a little. Are there any topics in Algebra 2 that maybe don't need to be covered as in depth? My dd wants to finish the course in a few months (2 to 3 months). I know that seems short, but this is her last course for high school and she is not taking anything else right now. She has already started and completed the first 2 chapters and we are about to start chapter 3, but looking over the material some of it seems a bit repetitive. Just want to see if anyone has any suggestions. Thanks!
We are using a Prentice-Hall Algebra 2 (Bellman, et al) with our 12 year old, which is going fine, and I think it will go fine throughout the year. While we were using Jacobs Geometry, my DS read P-H Algebra 1 and did some problems as an algebra 1 review, so the P-H Algebra 2 approach was familiar. We like that both P-H algebra books show a lot of applications of the algebra being learned. I also like that it includes some data analysis and very basic statistics along the way, since thatâ€™s so important in real life and the science weâ€™re planning next year. I also didnâ€™t find a compelling alternative. But now Iâ€™m wondering what weâ€™ll use next. Some possibilities are: Larsen Pre-calculus (havenâ€™t actually seen it); Foerster Pre-calculus AoPS Introduction to Counting and Probability as a short â€œdetour,â€ although we could do pre-calc simultaneously Counting and Probability. I actually have this book. Statistics. Has anyone here used the text â€œPractice of Statistics for AP, 4th edâ€ by Starnes, et al.? Anything else? We would like to learn more statistics to help with science next year. Very slowly start a calculus book and reviewing algebra 2 and filling in any gaps along the way. But weâ€™re in no rush to do calculus. Go to AoPSâ€™s 2nd algebra book, Intermediate Algebra. Iâ€™m a little hesitant here since we tried AoPS Intro to Algebra and it wasnâ€™t enjoyed by DS after a while. He feels he should â€œknowâ€ how to do the problems he sees and the AoPS approach stresses him out no matter how much I try to explain the approach and he reads their introductory materials. We tried the Intro to Algebra a while ago, when he was 9 Â½ and had a very solid background in pre-algebra, so itâ€™s been awhile and a lot of maturing has occurred. But my DS very much likes to see how what heâ€™s learning can be used and AoPS doesnâ€™t seem to have a lot of that. Yes, heâ€™ll play around with some advanced math concepts and logic, but itâ€™s not as much fun for him when itâ€™s assigned. Something else?? I've learned the hard way that just because the prerequisites are met and pre-tests are easy, sometimes the age and interests of the student makes a big difference too. Thanks for any and all insights!
