  1. Good Afternoon Often toted as the “1960’s” natural extension to the Dolciani series is Limits; a transition to calculus (1966) by O. Lexton Buchanan May I ask if anyone who has experience using this text could recount there experiences. I am able to find true text still available but I have been unsuccessful in finding a description or a even a Table of contents. It’s the “transition to calculus” that gives me pause and questions. Is this best classified as a “preCalculus text”? Or given the era it was published in might it be better classified as introductory calculus?

  3. I'm posting this request here because of the title of her book: Pre-Algebra: An "Accelerated" Course 😀
  4. So...I thought since there are quite a few threads going now on the topic of Pre-Algebra, it might be helpful to have one master thread to discuss texts, and to link to previous conversations. (Links at the bottom) I will post a link to my blog once I get photos up, as I know some of the texts are hard to preview online (Lial's, in particular) I have received Dolciani PreAlgebra: An Accelerated Course (1985) and Lial's Pre-Algebra Third Edition in the mail this past week. I already own Lial's BCM and AoPS Pre-A. So I think I have shopped enough that I can now safely make my decision...:D
  5. We toured a local private school today, and had the privilege of speaking with several of the teachers. I asked the algebra teacher which curriculum she used, and she picked up a classic Dolciani Algebra textbook with a publication date in the 1980's. She saw me almost pass out in rapture, and an instant kinship was formed-Math Curriculum Nerds! I thought we only existed on the forum, but I got to meet one in real life!: :hurray:
  6. My 10-year old son just finished Saxon 8/7. (Hooray!) He is going to tackle Saxon Course 3 next. After that, Algebra. We are very happy with Saxon, and will be using Saxon Algebra 1. However, I am considering supplementing the Saxon text with a second Algebra book, just to make sure he has a very strong foundation. He is young, so I see no need to rush things. We tried Art of Problem Solving a few months ago. My son disliked it. I didn't like it much either because helping him required too much of my time. I would like to try Jacobs or Dolciani, because so many people here have rec
  7. I just bought dh an early Christmas present--the Dolciani Pre-Algebra 1985/1988 Teacher's Edition. I think it will be his favorite gift of the year. Thank you for indulging my telling that bit of news. You people are the only ones I know in the whole world who can share my joy. :laugh: Anyway... Are there any pre-algebra topics either not covered well enough or entirely missing in Dolciani? Since it is such an old textbook, I am wondering if we may need to supplement it. Or else... Does anyone know of a thorough scope and sequence for Pre-Algebra which I could compare to
  8. I own Dolciani's Modern Algebra Structure & Method Book 1, and Modern Algebra & Trigonometry Structure and Method Book 2, however I haven't been able to find the Teacher's Editions which, I believe, contain the answer keys. Has anyone contacted Houghton Mifflin for the answer keys and, if so, do you have the contact information? I've tried online but their 1-800 numbers don't work in Canada (where I am), and I was only able to reach an obscure department who didn't know what I was talking about. I'd appreciate any information anyone can give. I have seen some WTM threads about t
  9. Ok, so I am in research mode for Dolciani information. I came across a 1971 version of this college text. Can anyone explain how it is different than the high school texts? Is it as good as the high school texts? Are there other college texts by Dolciani that might be of interest? I am an engineer who has had 3 courses of calculus and differential equations although by the time I would get around to teaching algebra to dd it will have been 30 years since taking high school algebra classes. How important are the teachers editions to have? Are the explanations clear enough that if y
  10. After my DH and I decided to go with the older Dolciani math textbooks, I started my search for the books on-line. My 1st purchase was made on April 21, 2008, and I received my last book of the series yesterday, June 23, 2008. Here's what I ended up with: Modern Algebra Structure & Method Book 1 Teacher's Edition and Student Text with answers (1965) Modern Geometry Structure & Method Teacher's Edition and Student Text (1965) Modern School Mathematics Algebra 2 & Trigonometry Teacher's Edition and Student Text with answers (1971) Modern Introductory Analysis Tea
  11. Dolciani Experts: What is the difference between Dolciani "Pre Algebra"and "Basic Algebra" The books I'm looking at are from the 1970's and 80's. Thanks! Bean
  12. I've tried to search for it but couldn't find the link to the online version of Dolciani Pre-Algebra. Can anybody point me in the right direction?
  13. Jane in NC or someone who has done this level or understands Geometry.... We're in 6-5 Proving Corresponding Parts Equal question 31 p207 (c1962, 1965)... In the answer there are 22 steps and dd is wondering.... In general - this is a big jump from the B-level problems that have average 7-8 steps.....How do you plan for arriving at the "Prove"....ie how do you prepare the path mentally? She doesn't want to go down too many dead ends.... Ahhh - strategies? I was terrible in Geometry... Thanks for any help, Joan
  14. For those who use Dolciani for Algebra: 1. What do you like about Dolciani over other textbooks such as Foerster? Why is this your curriculum of choice? 2. Do you intentionally have a really old version? Is it that much better than the newer versions such as this in your opinion: http://www.amazon.com/Algebra-Structure-Method-Book-1/dp/0395430526 3. How hard was it to get the solutions manual, expensive? 4. Are you aware of any instructional videos which align fairly well with the text such as Khan Academy, Math without Borders, AoPS, etc..? If so have you used them with any success? I
  15. For all Dolciani math text users who have or need solutions...I'm wondering how we can work together in a legal way to amass the solutions from OOP books.... Eg. I have the Modern Algebra and Trig Structure and Method Book Two c1963, 1965 solution book. It was partially cut apart by a previous owner so it is really falling apart. Earlier I posted about Google books but no one answered. I don't really have the time to pursue it with them because you have to show traffic for the book and other stuff which I have no idea how to do. Nor would I want to part with my book for an unknown pe
  16. Mary P. Dolciani co-authored several books in the Houghton Mifflin Modern Mathematics Series, starting in the 1960s, and the books were used widely. I think a sequence that could be used from grades 7 on are Pre-Algebra: An Accelerated Course (1996) by Mary P. Dolciani Modern Algebra Structure and Method (Book 1), revised ed. (1973), by Mary P. Dolciani and William Wooton Modern Algebra and Trigonometry: Structure and Method (Book 2) (1963) by Mary P. Dolciani, Simon L. Berman, and William Wooton Modern Geometry: Structure and Method (1965) by Ray C. Jurgensen, Alfred J.
  17. What's the difference between "Modern School Mathematics Algebra I" and "Modern Algebra Structure & Method Book 1"? I bought a 1967 version of the former today and am wondering if this is the text that is so well liked or if it is the latter.
  18. I've been reading Myrtle's blog for most of the afternoon, so that may give you an idea of where my thoughts are coming from. :001_smile: I have both the 1965 (1962) and 1970 (1967) Dolciani Algebra 1 texts. The 1970 text is the one written by Dolciani and Wooton, Beckenbach, Jurgensen, Donnelly. The authors of the earlier edition are Dolciani, Berman, and Freilich. I also own an 80's edition of the algebra text. (I have been searching for teacher's editions for these books, but have not been successful yet, so I'm hanging onto these copies and not selling them at this time. ;)) Af
  19. Will you please let me know if I have the right book? The book I received today does not have any marking that designates it as a "Teacher's Edition" anywhere in the book. It does contain the answers to even and odd numbered problems in the back. There are no teaching notes, which I would assume would be in red on the regular text. This book was sold to me as a teacher's edition, so I want to make sure this is as good as it gets before I send it back. If you have the 1962 TE for Dolciani Algebra I, is yours the same as mine?
  20. Just popping over from the K-8 board..... Is there any significant reason to choose Dolciani over Saxon for pre-algebra/ algebra? Or vice versa? Has anyone done one with one student and the other with another student? Did you see any advantages to one over the other? I'll have to outsource geometry and up, but I'm not sure where yet, if that makes a difference in choosing one over the other. Thanks in advance for any thoughts!
  21. The School Mathematics Study Group (SMSG) put out a two-year curriculum for junior high, circa 1960. Free PDFs. I came upon them this evening and had to share - enjoy :) http://static.cemseprojects.org/smsg/Math_For_Jr_High/
  22. I'm looking into getting Dolciani's Mathematics Structure and Method books, and her algebra books. Does anyone know if any version is better than the others? Thank you! Anna
  23. I have Dolciani's Modern School Mathematics Pre-Algebra from 1973 and her Pre-Algebra: An Accelerated Course from 1985 (which many of you have recommended). The 1973 one was mine and the 1985 one just arrived yesterday. 1973 begins with set theory and uses sets to explain new concepts (like input/output with functions, identifying different types of numbers - whole, integer, rational, etc). But 1985 doesn't use set theory, at all, anywhere. Other than that the books cover pretty much the same material. 1985 looks more user friendly and covers strategies for solving word problems, which I d
  24. Silly me. I thought that the trig portion of the Dolciani Algebra II/Trig text that my son is currently using would be the same as the Dolciani Modern Trigonometry text that I picked up at a library book sale last spring. (My new hobby is collecting old Dolciani texts on the cheap.) Imagine when I pulled the latter off the shelf and saw the name Bechenbach on the cover. Understand that the Dolciani/Bechenbach collaboration on Modern Introductory Analysis created a stellar high school math text that I used in the mid '70's. So my curiosity was piqued. This 1966 text begins where every o
  25. between a 1962 and 1965 text? I've previewed a newer text but would really love to get my hands on one of these older ones! Thanks~
