elegantlion Posted February 21, 2011 Share Posted February 21, 2011 I would use the pre-algebra books. Beginning Algebra is Algebra I Advanced Algebra would be Algebra II The home companions are like the lesson plans and additional tests for LOF. There are no home companions for the pre-algebra books.

Trish Posted February 21, 2011 Share Posted February 21, 2011 Don't forget he's coming out with Pre-Algebra with Physics this year! I have to admit, I adore listening to Fred talk about math, plus whatever other subject he has his little heart set on. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...

He has put Pre-Algebra with Physics on hold to work on a series for elementary children. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...

Guest Cheryl in SoCal Posted February 22, 2011 Share Posted February 22, 2011 (edited) I see a Pre-Algebra w/Biology Pre-Algebra w/Economics Beginning Algebra Beginning Algebra Companion Advanced Algebra Advanced Algebra Companion Are all of the above required to complete LoF Algebra? In the sequence listed? Then comes Geometry? MUS I believe does Pre-Algebra Algebra 1 Geometry Algebra 2 I use LoF about a year behind MUS so my children are introduced to the concepts in MUS and then the concepts are expanded on the next year in LoF. My schedule looks something like this: MUS Pre-Algebra - LoF Decimals & Percents MUS Algebra 1 - LoF Pre-Algebra with Biology & LoF Pre-Algebra with Economics MUS Algebra 2 - LoF Beginning Algebra MUS Geometry - LoF Advanced Algebra MUS Pre-Calculus - LoF Geometry etc, etc, etc I like it because the learning is extended over more than one year. I also like the Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry sequence that the author of LoF uses and since the student is doing LoF Advance Algebra at the same time he is doing MUS Geometry his/her Algebra skills are expanded instead of forgotten so they begin Pre-Calculus well prepared (more so in my opinion than if they had taken just a 1 year Algebra 2 course because they have been working with Algebra 2 over 2 years). LoF Statistics can be done as a separate course anytime after Algebra 1. Edited February 22, 2011 by Cheryl in SoCal Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
