  1. I know these editions are new. Has anyone done RS and gone on through levels G and H? My son is in level F (fifth grade) and I'm trying to figure out what to do for middle school and beyond. I emailed RS asking about the progression they used to recommend (starting videotext midway through the old level G) and I got the following response. We now have a Second Edition Level G and Level H that has taken the place of First Edition Level G. There was a lot of work done with the First Edition Level G that provides the teacher and the student with many improvements that help the student work through the program. The improvements are so vast that we are no longer selling the First Edition Level G.. In addition, more lessons have been included in Level H that will include the final elements to Pre-Algebra. So, when the student has completed Levels G and H, they will then have the Pre-Algebra math credit and are ready to start high school Algebra. No longer does the student need to work through any RightStart Math level along with VideoText Algebra Here is a sample schedule that your son can use: 5th Grade - Complete Level F 6th Grade - Level G 7th Grade - Level H 8th Grade - Algebra program of your choice Now I'm confused because the Videotext algebra sequence includes prealgebra so if we do both G and H we would have to skip the Videotext prealgebra course. I think that might be a bad idea. It makes sense to stick with the same curriculum for prealgebra and algebra so the teaching method is the same. Has anyone done RS through middle school (G&H) and gone to something besides videotext for HS? The question I'm asking may be unanswerable simply because the new edition hasn't been out long enough.... Just looking for input/suggestions from anyone who has been there. Thanks so much!
  2. I posted a question about a year ago about using Khan as a core curriculum along with Zacarro Algebra Problem Solving for pre-algebra. Here I am a year later with a similar question. My daughter used the above combo for pre algebra last year in 7th grade. It seemed to be working well, other than there not being detailed enough solutions in the Zacarro book, until half way through the year when she panicked that Khan might not be covering everything she needed to know. Since there wasn't a preset lesson each day, she didn't have confidence that she was doing enough. We jumped ship and purchased Saxon algebra 1/2. She did only tests until she came upon things she was uncertain about and then did the lessons to correspond to those topics. Neither of us liked Saxon though, and towards the end of the year, I purchased VideoText Algebra. They suggest you always start with the pre algebra portion and cover all of their material to complete all the way through algebra 2. She is nearly through Module A, which is roughly equivalent to pre algebra and wants to find something else to stick with through high school. The explanations don't make as much sense to her as Khan, which worries her for what it will be like when she reaches more difficult material. And the many pieces to the curriculum make it hard for her to face every day. She is begging to go back to Khan Academy. She enjoys the videos in Khan and the way things are presented. She likes puzzling through the problems and using the hints and videos when necessary. She even enjoys watching more advanced topics for fun. She just plain likes Khan even though she doesn't like computers or videos that much in general. The general consensus around here though seems to be that Khan alone is not enough. Is there an inexpensive resource we could put with it to add problems, and more particularly to have some sort of assessment so she can be certain she thoroughly understands each topic before moving on? Unfortunately I am no help since I have forgotten over the years all the algebra knowledge I once possessed. She needs to be fairly independent. Her preference would to have Khan be her core with the other resource as the supplement rather than plugging through a textbook and using Khan for the video explanations. Is this possible? I don't want her to be lacking in anything, but I need to find something that works for her that is inexpensive, but can be used mostly independently. I had hoped Videotext would be the answer for us. I would greatly appreciate any suggestions.

  4. I'm looking for reviews of VideoText math. Has anyone used Algebra, Geometry, or both? Can you tell me about your experience? I'd also welcome being pointed to threads where this has been discussed in the past, especially recent threads - I've found some very old ones, but not much recently. TIA!
  5. My ds12 completed RS Math thru Level E, LOF thru Decimals & Percents, and is currently working simultaneously thru RS Geometric Approach and VT Mod B (after finishing Mod A). We have been frustrated, here and there, with gaps in the instruction. The most recent example is: VT Mod B Unit II Lesson 5, problem 9. In order to understand this problem, we referred to a separate algebra source on word problems, which taught the term "total minus". This has happened many times and ds has been asking for a different curriculum. When I go through it with him, I see the cause of his frustrations, and am inclined to "jump ship". I have loved RightStart for my kids. I have grown to trust Dr. Cotter - and she recommends VT wholeheartedly because it is as conceptually strong as RS. But I have been wondering if this is not really so. I need an algebra curriculum that is comprehensive and teaches concepts, not just algorithms. What has been your experience with VT? Also, we don't necessarily need a video program. What other curricula would you suggest I look into? Thanks for reading this and for help.
  6. Has anyone used Algebra: A Complete Course by VideoText Interactive? If so, what have you thought of it? My dd13 is currently using Life of Fred Decimals & Percents and Teaching Textbooks Pre-Algebra. She likes LoF, but she keeps saying that she's not a fan of TT and wishes she could go back to R&S, but they end at 8th grade. R&S Publishers sells Algebra: A Complete Course as their high school math option, but they do not produce it. They have a very positive review of the program by Dr. Jay Wyle on their site, and we like the Apologia science materials. I have ordered the sample CD, but it is a pricey program, so I'd like as much feedback as possible before scraping together the money for it. Thanks.
  7. I am preparing for Algebra. Any thoughts pros and cons to Videotext Algebra? I could really use some thougtful input ~ Thank you! :)
  8. Hello. I'm new to the board; however, I'm not new to home schooling. This is our 6th year educating our three children. Is VideoText Algebra confusing or is it just me? This is my first year using this for my 8th grader. We used Teaching Textbooks pre-algebra last year and liked it. I heard that VideoText had more solid content, so we switched after viewing samples. Fastforward to now.....I've never in my been more confused. I don't like VT's teaching style at all. I'm not a mathy person; my husband is and he gets it. My son and I BOTH get confused. I've heard the same thing from a few other home schoolers who have used VT. We are taking it slow because he's only in 8th grade, but I can't help him because I'm not understanding the lessons either. Any suggestions? Val
