  3. 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!
  4. I'm finding some great free and low cost stuff for teaching Euclid, so I'm starting a thread. It is going to take me a bit to add all the links. If you have ones you like, please add them. If you have seriously self-educated or taught Euclid, please share. If you have anything to say at all, please do. If you have no words and want to just post emoticons, go ahead. :D I'm really drawn to spending time on Euclid for its ability to be a book that can be bonded with like a favorite novel or holy book. It seems like some people have a life-long love-affair with this book. This book review of Euclid is inspiring.
  5. How and when do you use this curriculum? Thank you!
  6. For our mathematicians boardies :D From BBC http://m.bbc.com/news/science-environment-28739373 "An Iranian mathematician working in the US has become the first ever female winner of the celebrated Fields Medal. In a landmark hailed as "long overdue", Prof Maryam Mirzakhani was recognised for her work on complex geometry." "In becoming the very first female medallist, Prof Mirzakhani - who teaches at Stanford University in California - ends what has been a long wait for the mathematics community." "Prof Dame Frances Kirwan, a member of the medal selection committee from the University of Oxford, pointed out that despite being viewed traditionally as "a male preserve", women have contributed to mathematics for centuries. She noted that around 40% of maths undergraduates in the UK are women, but that proportion declines rapidly at PhD level and beyond." ETA: From Stanford "Mirzakhani became known to the international math scene as a teenager, winning gold medals at both the 1994 and 1995 International Math Olympiads – she finished with a perfect score in the latter competition. Mathematicians who would later be her mentors and colleagues followed the mathematical proofs she developed as an undergraduate." http://news.stanford.edu/news/2014/august/fields-medal-mirzakhani-081214.html ETA: Lovely write up in Simons Foundation http://www.simonsfoundation.org/quanta/20140812-a-tenacious-explorer-of-abstract-surfaces/ ETA: Her paper http://arxiv.org/pdf/1302.3320.pdf ETA: "Stanford mathematics professor Maryam Mirzakhani, the first and to-date only female winner of the Fields Medal since its inception in 1936, died July 15 after a long battle with cancer. Mirzakhani was 40 years old." http://news.stanford.edu/2017/07/15/maryam-mirzakhani-stanford-mathematician-and-fields-medal-winner-dies/
  7. My rising 9th grader will be using VT algebra, which includes algebra I & II. I am thinking of switching to Saxon Advanced Math after that, since she has been using Saxon algebra 1/2 with great success. For those of you who have experience with Saxon Advanced Math, will my dd be able to go right into the geometry section in Saxon Advanced Math since she won't have geometry background in Saxon algebra I & II? If not, will say a geometry course on khan academy or EDX (https://www.edx.org/course/introduction-geometry-schoolyourself-geometryx-1) be sufficient to fill in the gaps before she is able to handle the geometry in Advanced Math smoothly? Does the geometry section in Saxon Advanced Math covers completely different material in the geometry sections in Saxon algebra I & II or does it cover similar topics, just going deeper?

  9. Hello, In looking over the various Geometry texts I really like Jurgensen a lot. So I am considering using it next Fall as ds12's primary text. I've already purchased the book and am looking to get the Solutions Manual ISBN-13: 9780395677667. Has anyone who used Jurgensen also purchased the Solutions Key? The reason I'm asking is that it is 6 years older than the student workbook. Yet I could not find an answer key with the same publish date as the text. If anyone has experience using Jurgensen I'd appreciate hearing from you. Thanks,
  10. We are starting Thinkwell Geometry in a few weeks. I've seen some posts on the forum that suggest it needs supplementation, while others say it doesn't. Would I need to supplement for a mathy student on an engineering/computer path? Would it be helpful to buy the Holt textbook to use as extra practice? If so, are there any solutions in the book or is there a solutions manual available? Are those in the One Stop Planner?
  11. Any experience with IUOHS? I noticed they use Tarbak for earth science and Hewitt for IPC, so someone who knows what there doing may be there, somewhere. ;) I'm looking specifically at their geometry for next year: https://iuhighschool.iu.edu/courses/highschool/courses/9886 The course description says they teach some proofs, the exams are open-ended questions, and students need to show their work. The price is around $200/ semester. It's completely self paced (but only six months to finish a semester). I think this is exactly what we need, but I'd love to here of anyone who has used them. I'm also looking at their French b/c they go through French 3 and then the university has online French, Any experience? The cost is sure good, and dc prefers self-paced over live classes usually. Thanks!
  12. Does anyone know if there is any way to get answers to the third sets of problems for the 1st edition of Jacobs Geometry? Thanks so much.
  13. I'm trying to figure out which edition of Harold Jacobs Geometry to buy. Any suggestions? Thanks so much! Debbie
  14. Dd will be in 10th next school year and possibly taking Geometry at co-op. They use Teaching Textbooks. This year dd has been thriving with Alg 1 using Tablet Class. I'm wondering if we should just stay the course with TC or let her take TT with local teacher once a week?! Can anyone give me their thoughts on TT or TC's Geometry? Pros, cons,...... Btw, she says she doesn't like Geometry. Thanks🙂
  15. By "basic geometry" I am referring to the material covered on the SAT or ACT, plus an introduction to geometric proofs. It seems to me that all of this material is in my old Saxon Algebra 2 book, which covers a mix of Algebra, basic trigonometry, and Geometry. (I may be wrong about this. If so, please let me know!) It seems to me, further, that every Geometry and trigonometry problem in this book can be completed in about one month (assuming roughly 20 problems per day and five lessons per week). If I'm right -- that is, if all the geometry a kid needs to do well on the SAT or ACT can be covered in one month -- why do most public school students spend an entire academic year on Geometry? Are they spending a lot of time on material that isn't in the Saxon Algebra 2 book? I feel like I must be missing something.
  16. I'm referring to Saxon Algebra 2: An Incremental Development, Third Edition. Thank you.
  17. My son is taking the MyHomeschoolMathClass Geometry with Jann in Texas and I need your help to come up with a good course description for what they have covered. If your child is in this class I would love to see what you are using as your description. If your child is not in this class I would still love to have your input. =) Here is what I have so far: This is a Pre-AP Algebra-based Geometry class that emphasizes the study of the properties and application of common geometric figures in two and three dimensions. Euclidean methods are used to solve proofs of geometric figures. The student uses inductive and deductive reasoning skills in problem solving. The text emphasizes real world applications of geometric principles. Constructions and transformations are explored as well as tessellations. Numerous axioms and theorems are introduced with regard to congruence and triangles. The study of triangle is further amplified by the study of the Pythagorean theorem and other properties of right triangles including the introduction of trigonometric ratios. Primary Text used: Holt Geometry, by Dr Edward Burger (2007) ISBN 9780030358289
  18. Help needed. My 10th grader daughter has just finished Algebra 2 at the college. So she now has Alg. 1 and Alg. 2 done, and well. She is not a mathy student however. She has had a little geometry from Alg 1 Saxon, but I believe she may need more. I think we were hoping she would take Trig and then pre calculus at the college maybe Junior year and/ or senior year. When should we do geometry? Can we do it this year in one semester? Can we skip it? Does anyone have a good book idea? Will collegeswant to see Geometry? Trig and precalculus are semester classes so we have some wiggle room. Looking for guidance! Thanks. p.s. I will be looking through old threads too.
  19. DS 12 started AOPS Introductory Geometry last week and is enjoying it so far. One thing that he is missing are the videos that he used with AOPS Algebra and C&P courses before. In checking with AOPS folks, there is no definitive time frame for those videos. Has anyone paired the AOPS chapters/ class with videos from other sources (Khan academy etc)? Would love any suggestions for videos that could accompany the AOPS geometry course.
  20. Bouncing around ideas...... Background D12 is in 7th grade public school Algebra I We supplement her PS Algebra I class at home. . She is just now starting back to Foerster Alg I after taking a long break and working through another text (Advanced Math for Young Students: A first course in Algebra). I am thinking she will finish the Foerster Alg I text by the time 7th grade is over at the latest. I am thinking of starting Foerster Alg II right after that and taking it very slow. So she could do that over the 8th grade while in geometry and 9th grade while in Alg II. While in 8th grade she would also supplement geometry with something like Keys to Geometry and maybe Great Courses An Interactive Journey to Mastery. Any ideas?? Thank you
  21. Has anyone tried: Math in a box with Susan O Johnsey? I am looking for a geometry program that uses the Jurgenson geometry text. My DD is In public school so that sadly rules out the Wilson Hill online geometry course. I have never taken geometry so I would not be able to help my DD. I am searching for something that is more rigorous than the public school class that will do a much better job of teaching proofs. My hope would be that she get used to feeling some degree of frustration and not give up. I have found a tutor but he is not familiar with the Jurgenson text, but willing to look it over. I would like to supplement this with more comprehensive type lectures. Asynchronous classes would be fine. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
  22. I am having a smack down on my over reaching "after schooling" and reality. I am heaping too much on my kid to do as "after school" and need to dial it down. I am embarrassed to ask if geometry supplementation is any less importance than algebra? D12 is working on Foerster Alg 1 and I am adding WWS 1, easy grammar, Spelling to this and all of it to be done after she gets home from 7th grade public school each day. I definitely want her to continue Algebra with Foerster for 1,2 and precal. I am hoping/praying that WWS really helps my reluctant writer became a solid writer. The Easy Grammar is really needed and she is not a very good speller. The plan is to slow the after school Foerster Alg 1 down to 30 mins 3-4 X a weekly depending on how time consuming WWS 1 turns out to be. She will be in alg 1 in public school 7th grade starting in 2 weeks. I am hoping she can successfully complete WWS 1 in 7th grade and WWS 2 in 8th grade. It seems like we will not have enough time to complete full programs of Alg 1, geometry and precal at slower pace. I was wanting to cut down on geometry. One idea is The Great Courses Interactive Geometry program with James Tanton. Do you think that would be a good idea? Or TabletClass geometry.
  23. We are founds of Lost Art Press around here, and were excited to see they are coming out with a new geometry/furniture design book that we are going to order for Willem (combining woodwork and maths in our household is considered an awesome thing). There is a free excerpt of the book available as a pdf. As the blog post about it says: (and if you are in to things like woodwork, furniture design and such, the blog and website are well worth looking around)
  24. Has anyone ever used REA Problem Solver to supplement math text? Wondering if it would be a good fit to supplement Tablet Class geometry.
  25. I have the student textbook and teacher's guide. I'm looking for the Tests. The only ones I see are listed in Amazon with the ISBN: 978-0716717478. When I look in other sites that may have had it at one point, it says that the Test Master or Test Book is 668 pages? This can't be right? I'm assuming this is just a booklet of tests so it should be about 50 pages at the most? (They might be misposting it as the textbook itself) If anyone has one, can you tell me about how many pages it contains? Does anyone know of a site where I can download these tests as a PDF? Prices on Amazon are too high...for one that is in acceptable condition, and then it soars from there.
