  1. For various reasons, the scale has tipped to algebra 2 this year over geometry for this year. Dd has done some geometry, and will finish it the next year. She did well with Foerster Algebra 1, and we hope to do Derek Owens Precalculus after geometry. My two thoughts: Foerster Algebra 2, Kolbe honors. Dd wants to be more familiar with her TI84 she got from an older sib, and this is scheduled. She did well with Foerster Algebra 1, and I really like the solutions videos from MWB. I like the idea of the Kolbe syllabus because I want her to cover algebra 2 before she takes the SAT next year
  2. I recently purchased a copy of Foerster Precalc with Trig and am disappointed with the number of problems that are plug and chug with a calculator. Can anyone tell me of a text that has good real world problems and teaches precalc without so much reliance on using a calculator? Thanks, Debbie
  3. Jacobs Elementary Algebra vs Foerster Algebra 1. Which do you prefer and why?
  4. I'm looking over options for home schooling calculus. We'd like something for 11th grade and DS would like to take the AP Calculus BC test. He finds AoPS frustrating (likes an explanation first then problems rather than trying them first as in AoPS), yet doesn't want something that's just a drill of exercises. So we're somewhere in the middle: a little beyond the minimum for the AP Calculus BC test, but not much. (FYI, I can answer questions if DS has them, but he prefers using a text.) In looking over a number of texts and reading the pinned High School Math thread on the WTM board, I'm consi
  5. 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?
  6. Lost Math Without Borders Algebra I thumb drive during our move and my computer crashed and did not have it backed up. D12 is on chapter 10.8 and rarely uses the videos but asked to watch one tonight. Does any one have a Math Without Borders Algebra I disc/thumbdrive I could purchase? I have looked in the classifieds already
  7. I've spent a lot of time looking for online samples of Foerster's Algebra 1, as I'm considering ordering the text for my son, but have had no success. I was wondering if anyone could tell me how review is built into the Foerster's text. Do the daily assignments contain a review section, which covers material learned in previous lessons and chapters? If not, is there cumulative review built in, in another way? We've used Rod and Staff Arithmetic since grade 1 and love the way each lesson has a review section, so I'm trying to find an algebra that has a similar format. Also, how long does
  8. DS12 will finish up Saxon Algebra 1, 3rd ed., in a few months. He does well with Saxon and we plan on eventually proceeding to Saxon Algebra 2 and Saxon Advanced Mathematics. He has been doing fine, scoring 85 or so on most of his tests. I think his conceptual understanding is excellent, but he is prone to making sloppy mistakes. After he finishes the Saxon Algebra 1 book, here are some options: proceed directly to Saxon Algebra 2, assuming he scores 85 or higher on his last three tests; spend a couple of months reviewing Algebra 1 using AoPS, Lial, Foerster, or Jacobs. I think he'd b
  9. D12 has been working through Foerster Algebra I text. I had her skip the end of chapter test because she was going to her dad's for 6 weeks and I wanted to use them for a retention check. So she started back up this week, working through the end chapter test, having no problems..........Then............ She gets to Chapter 5: Polynomials........did not retain that chapter (also that was the first chapter of new material she had never seen before. What to do know? Work through a chunk of problems from Foerster chpt 5 or something else. What does her lack of retent
  10. Hello, I just got off the phone with the math Cheif at the most expensive, best reputation in our town, private school. I inquired as to what text they use for Algebra I, Geometry and Algebra II. She stated they use Glencoe for all. The edition we spoke about was Glencoe Common Core 2014 Algebra I. She said they also use Foerster as a supplement. Does anyone have any experience with Glencoe? I can not afford to send my daughter to this school, but feel she is being woefully under challenged in public school and sadly, home school is not an option.
  11. 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 that’s so important in real life and the science we’re planning next year. I also didn’t find a compel
  12. Has anyone used the Math without Borders DVD to go along with the Foerester's algebra and trig book? I'm wondering if it gives enough instruction as I can't really help my son in the subject. Thanks.
  13. Any ideas? I am fixing to start one or the other with my ds (age 12). He gets concepts quite well. Makes a lot of what I call "careless" math errors. Doesn't particularly like to think but is capable of doing it. Any suggestions? Thanks!
  14. Hi everyone, I'm stuck on a problem from Foerster Precalculus (1-3, #13) - I just can't figure out how to input an equation into the y= editor of my TI-84. First I must enter f(x) = 4 x square root of (1-x) + 2.25 x (x-l). I put this in y subscript 1. Then I also have to enter -2 + 3f(x-6). My problem is that I can't figure out how to write f(x) in this way in the y-editor. (After I input these two equations, I am supposed to graph them and see if they match up to the graphs in the text. The topic is transformations - dilations and translations - of functions.) Hopefully this wa
  15. My ds (9th) is wrapping up Ch. 11 of Foerster's Algebra. The last three chapters of the text are: Ch. 12: Radical Algebraic Expressions Ch. 13: Inequalities Ch. 14: Functions and Advanced Topics I know that there is no possible way for him to finish those chapters before summer is over. (He works slowly in math, and we are also preparing to move out of state.) Here are our options as I see them: 1. Finish the book in the fall (probably by Christmas) and then do a lighter geometry over 6 months (MUS or LOF maybe?) 2. Finish Ch. 11, take a break to move, etc., and then do a
  16. So... I had all planned to use Foersters for Algebra with my dd. I had gotten a bunch of programs out of the library (Lials/Foersters/Jacobs) and she had chosen Foersters. Then last summer we did AoPS Number Theory (fun math, she calls it!) and I changed gears and decided to give her AoPS Algebra when the time came (I admit to loving AoPS myself). She liked that idea. Then this past year we've done DM1. She did fine with it, but had to spend a lot of time on it - there are some really tough problems in that workbook! She saw her twin sister blasting through Lial's Prealgebra and spendi
  17. Does anyone have a website that would let me look at samples of the Foerster's Algebra 1 or any other of his maths. I can't seem to find any samples. Also, is a teacher's edition necessary to teach the course? Thank-you, Annette
  18. My 6th grader is doing fine in pre algebra this year, so I'm looking into algebra programs for next year. I would appreciate any advice you have to offer about these 2 programs. Feel free to throw in another program if you like it better! BTW, I prefer programs that give lots of example and instruction - not a ps text that assumes the teacher doesn't need a lot of help explaining concepts.
  19. PBWM (please bear with me) after my Calc thread earlier this year.... After that thread, I thought it best to use Larson for Calculus and got all the materials in prep for December. Then ds started Precalculus first with Dolciani, then dipped into Larson Precalc, then moved to Foerster Precalc because he did not like how Larson was written. He really likes the way things are explained in Foerster Precalc and is now steaming ahead. He really did not like the way things were explained in Larson and found it hard to understand.. So I got worried and ordered all the materials for
  20. Can someone compare Jacobs, Lial, Foerster, and Teaching Textbook math curriculum? Thanks.
  21. After spending much time searching through the many forums I have finally narrowed down my search of Algebra 2/Geometry books. Algebra 2 Foerster Algebra and Trigonometry Dolciani Algebra and Trigonometry Structure & Method Book 2 Lial Intermediate Algebra Geometry Jacobs? Jurgensen I am looking for a very rigorous course with thorough explanations. I have seen many comparisons on the Forester/Dolciani/Lial/Jacobs book's in past posts and I was wondering which has the most rigorous approach and also a somewhat self teaching method. Also in reference to the Dolciani
  22. If you do Foerster's Algebra 1 do you use Math without Borders and do you like it and find it useful. Do you think it could be used without the cds.
  23. Pros and cons please! Heather
  24. Hi all - my son is finishing up the last chapter of Lial's BCM and I'm ready to get him started on Foerster's Algebra I. Tell me what I need: student text for sure, but what about solutions manual, and teacher's manual? Does the student text have answers to evens or odds in the back? I'm fairly confident about my ability to explain the concepts and teach, so I'm not too worried about the teacher's manual, but I would like to check my son's work without having to work all of the problems myself! Also, where is the best place (cheapest) to get these things? Amazon, direct from publish
