Jacob's Algebras has extra credit questions in the daily assignments (Set IV) and on the tests, but I don't see any suggestion on how many points to assign. What do you think would be a reasonable amount (percentage of the total?) to offer for extra credit?. The daily assignments seem to have about 45 questions with 1-3 extra credit questions and the tests run from 20 to 50 questions with 1 extra credit question. How do other math programs handle this?
Looking for suggestions for my DD (6th) - math seems to come naturally to her. I'm wondering what to do for 6th grade - last year she did Singapore 6 and Saxon 7/6. For this coming year I'm considering jumping her right into Jacobs Algebra w Dr Callahan. Has anyone else done this without doing Saxon 8/7 or some other pre-algebra course first? Thanks!
My completely-different-from-her-sister Dd#2 will hopefully be ready for Algebra next year. She is an artsy, writing-type who hates math. (She'll be in 9th next year.) She struggles with it and has to take more time to solidify both the math concept and process. I am looking at using Jacobs Algebra for her. I already own the text. I did a search, but can't find many reviews of the Ask Dr. Callahan materials. She will either need instruction from me (daily) or a video. I will have to help anyway, so would prefer to save my time for working through problems she is having issues with. Having a syllabus and tests is a plus. My question is, how US the DVD instruction and do I need the DVDs? Anyone use them and have a review- pro or con?
I've been leaning towards AoPS for ds but now I'm leaning towards Jacobs. I know it's hard to find and have to do a search for it! I've found a couple of copies around $40. That's pretty good right? Can someone who has a copy confirm the ISBN number so I can make sure I'm buying the correct book? And what else do I need? Teacher manual? Solutions manual?
Cross-posted at High School Board I'm following the syllabus in the Teacher's Guide for Jacobs Algebra published by AskDrCallahan.com. They've broken down the lessons into a handful of problems. I don't see any advice about what to assign for homework. What have others done?
