  1. 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?
  2. Jacobs Elementary Algebra vs Foerster Algebra 1. Which do you prefer and why?
  3. I'm trying to figure out which edition of Harold Jacobs Geometry to buy. Any suggestions? Thanks so much! Debbie
  4. 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 be fine proceeding to Saxon Algebra 2. However, he is quite young and I worry about him falling into the "Calculus Trap." At his current pace, he'll finish Calculus at age 15. I like the idea of building in some "detours" in between Saxon texts. He will probably tackle Jacobs Geometry after Saxon Algebra 2, for example. I am a little concerned about his sloppiness and would prefer to see him scoring a bit higher on his tests. So I am leaning toward option #2. However, I am not sure which book to use for Algebra review. We tried AoPS a few years ago and it didn't go well. My son is not passionate about math and is not a math genius. I own Jacobs' Algebra book; it looks relatively easy compared to Saxon Algebra 1. I don't know if this would be the right book for us. I have not seen Lial or Foerster. I know they are popular here.
  5. 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.
  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 recommended them. Unfortunately, I cannot find an affordable copy of either book. Also, I need a solutions manual, and I cannot find an affordable version of those either. Advice?
  7. Hi everyone - I purchased the Fred Pre-algebra series for my almost 10 year-old dd. She is about 1/2 way through the Physics book and I do not like the look of the Pre-algebra 2 with Economics book, so I have decided not to use it. I estimate that she will be finished with the Pre-algebra 1 with Biology book by February. My question is, where should we go from there before she takes Algebra? Jousting Armadillos and the other books in that series look good. I also have Fred Algebra (my older daughter is using that now) and Jacobs Algebra on my shelf, as well as Jacobs Mathematics a Human Endeavor. Do you see a natural progression from Fred Pre-algebra 1 to anything that I have, or should I bite the bullet and buy JA? Should I just get that now and switch her to that instead of Fred if I am not going to have her do the Fred Pre-algebra 2? In the past, we have used Fred for summer review - this is the first time we have used it for the main math. Should I get the JA now and then use Fred just for summer review again? I hate second guessing myself after we have started something! I appreciate any thoughts. Thanks! Kristin
  8. I have a three different sources of homework assignment pages for Jacobs Geometry. Some do not include or schedule the following chapters for study or homework: Jacobs Chapter 13: Concurrence Theorems -- Triangles and Circles, Cyclic Quadrilaterals, Incircles, The Centroid of a Triangle, Ceva's Theorem, Napoleon's Discovery and other Surprises Jacobs Chapter 16: Non-Euclidean Geometries -- Geometry on a Sphere, The Saccheri Quadrilateral, The geometries of Lobachevsky and Riemann, The Triangle Angle Sum Theorem Revisited Are these topics normally covered in high school geometry? If not, are they eventually covered in another math course? Do you think these topics are important or interesting? (Important for certain fields of study, follow-on courses, and/or standardized testing. Interesting as they tie topics together, extend thinking?) My dd, 16, would like to "finish" geometry and move on to Algebra II. But if these topics are really interesting or important I want to make sure I cover them. Thank you!
  9. Does ANYONE have these? In particular, I'm looking for the Geometry (2nd edition) set, but I'd be thrilled with the Algebra ones as well. Does anyone have any suggestions on where to look for them? I've googled multiple times with no luck. Is there a way to contact the publisher or Mr. Jacobs himself?
  10. 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!
  11. I am preparing to homeschool my dd who is going into 5th grade this fall. This will be our first year homeschooling; until this time she has attended public school. She loves math and picks up concepts easily. From K through 4th grade, her school used Everyday Math for her mathematics curriculum (which she did not like at all). ETA: My plan is to begin the year with a review of multiplying 2- and 3- digit numbers, division, and fractions and decimals (especially addition and subtraction of fractions) - all of which were covered at the end of 4th grade. While my daughter could do the work, I know that she doesn't understand deeply why she should solve the problems in that way. Based on recommendations here, I ordered Singapore Math, Life of Fred: Fractions, and Jacobs' Mathematics: A Human Endeavor to check out as possible resources to use for her mathematics curriculum this fall. (I was planning on some combination of the three.) I am also looking at working on math using Montessori materials. Now that I have the books in hand and have looked through them, the book that captivated me the most - and that my instinct says will also engage my daughter the most - is Jacobs. However, the concepts introduced in it seem very different in sequence and scope from typical 5th grade curricula. So, my question for those of you who have also used Jacobs: 1. At what grade level did you introduce it? 2. How did you use it? Did you work through it from front to back like a regular textbook? Did you combine it with another curriculum? If so, how did you integrate them? 3. Do you recommend the Student Workbook? Is there a Teacher's Manual? Thanks for any advice! Lori
  12. 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.
  13. Can someone compare Jacobs, Lial, Foerster, and Teaching Textbook math curriculum? Thanks.
  14. 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 books is it necessary to get the books from the 60's and 70's because I have an Algebra book from 90's but have read on here that it isn't regarded as highly as the earlier books. Also I heard that Foerster is lacking in proofs and explaining the why of things while Dolciani tends to explain it in more detail. Which texts are more for independent use and which are more teacher oriented? Also in reference to the DVT for Lial's text where are they available and could someone give me a link to them.Overall I'm looking for books for Geometry and Algebra 2 texts and any help or other suggested texts would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
  15. Since you all talked me out of using MUS for Algebra 1 ... ;) Now I'm deciding between Foerster, Jacobs, and Dolciani. Here are my requirements for a math program: 1) Must be mastery approach. We don't do well with the incremental/spiral method. 2) MUST have a solutions manual for Geometry, Algebra 2, & higher levels. For Algebra 1, a solutions manual would be great, but we'll be okay as long as there's at least an answer key. 3) Must have lots of step-by-step examples in the text, along with explanations about why each step is done (which property, etc.) 4) Must be visually appealing, with at least some color in diagrams, charts, etc. Photos are a plus, but not a necessity. Below are my options, as I see them now, for the high school sequence (which EK will actually begin next year in 8th grade). Option 1 Algebra 1 -- Dolciani's Algebra Structure & Method Book 1 Geometry -- Jurgensen's Geometry Algebra 2 -- Dolciani's Algebra and Trigonometry Structure & Method Book 2 Precalculus -- ?? Option 2 Algebra 1 -- Foerster's Algebra 1: Expressions, Equations, and Applications Geometry -- Jacobs' Geometry Algebra 2 -- Foerster's Algebra and Trigonometry Precalculus -- ?? Option 3 Algebra 1 -- Jacobs' Elementary Algebra Geometry -- Jacobs' Geometry Algebra 2 -- Foerster's Algebra and Trigonometry Precalculus -- ?? I have not actually looked at (as in, held in my hands) any of these except Jacobs' Elementary Algebra. So please tell me which, if any, of these options do NOT meet my criteria? Which do you like best? Why? Please tell me what you like and what you don't like about the individual books/courses.
  16. Thanks for the posts reguarding Alg 1. I had a few follow up questions relating to Jacobs & Foersters- 1) Will either Jacobs or Foersters be over my 12yo 7th graders head? She's finishing up SM 6B by May, so I was going to continue with SM Challenging Word Problems thru' the summer then start Alg 1. I'd say she is slightly above avg in math. But not the type that just "gets it" right away. Which one would you recommend? 2) I saw that I could purchase Foersters Alg 1 Student Edition on Pearson Learning website (thanks for the link Sharon). But, noticed I can't buy the TM or tests or solutions book. Where else can these be purchased? 3) Also, I stumbled upon this website -http://www.homeschoolmath.net/reviews/foerster_algebra_1_home_study_companion.php when I was searching by "Foerster Algebra 1" has anyone used this companion CD to Foersters Alg 1?? Was it worth buying? 4) For either text, do did you dc simply do one lesson day? (I need something pretty much independent as I'm also schooling 3 others) 5) For either text, is there a website where I can see samples? I requested a sample from Pearson Learning, just don't know how soon they'll send me something... thanks! Sharon, thanks for telling me to look for either texts at the MACHE fair. I planning to attend (unless something arises). DO you know of any other fairs in the MD/N.VA area that are latter in the summer?? Thanks so much everyone for responding! I'm all ears! :bigear:
