This book is designed to teach students tricks and tips on how to produce a better score on the math section of the SAT test. The content of the book is laid out so that concepts are explained in short, easily digestible bits immediately followed by several examples with detailed solutions. Topics covered include but are not limited to fractions, comparisons, roots, averages, number theory, percents, substitution, exponents, factoring, quadrics, perimeter, area, volume, and surface area. The book ends with 3 sets of practice tests that simulate the types of problems you are likely to see the day of the real test. Although the author's claim that the contents of this book will improve your score by 100 points or more may or not be accurate, I do believe mastery of the material presented in this book will certainly work to improve your overall math score.

Leasing a car, buying on credit, planning a budget  these are just a few examples of "survival math skills." This book contains 46 reproducible activities, each of which is categorized by math content and computational skill for easy integration into your math curriculum. Activities are organized into eight main topics: food costs & nutrition, transportation & vacation costs, saving & checking accounts, household budgeting, buying on credit, job benefits & income, taxes, and miscellaneous. Teacher pages and solutions are included. Although no grade level is recommended, I would recommend these activities for middle school to high school students because activities require students to work proficiently with monetary computations, percents, proportions, and decimals. ~ Anh

The first of four units in the MFW high school program, this one is considered foundational to the rest and covers Bible, history and English and is worth 3 fullyear credits (1 credit per subject). The lesson plans are designed for the students to work independently the majority of the week, with a parentstudent conference and discussion of topics covered on Fridays. You will need to add math and science to the curriculum (MFW recommends Saxon Math with DIVE CDs for math and Apologia Science) and may also want to consider adding foreign language, logic or other electives. For Bible and history, students will read through the Old Testament along with Taking the Old Testament Challenge. The Old Testament Readings are also central to the ancient history study along with Notgrass Exploring World History. Students will fill in an Ancient History Timeline Book to record events from their reading. There are comprehension questions, map work and service projects as well. In English, the focus is on essay writing, particularly the argumentative essay, and students will write five of these during the year. Literature from the periods covered is also read and analyzed from a Christian perspective. The Limited Edition Package includes Lesson Plans; Ancient Literature Supplement; Ancient History Timeline Book and figures; Daniel Inductive Bible Study for Teens; Unwrapping the Pharaohs; Student Bible Atlas; Exploring World History set; What On Earth Am I Here For?; The Odyssey; The Cat of Bubastes; Bulfinch's Greek and Roman Mythology; New Answers Book; The Iliad; Encyclopedia of the Ancient World; The Tabernacle; Eric Liddell; the Epic of Gilgamesh; Taking the Old Testament Challenge and Journey Through the Bible.

An easy program to use, for both student and teacher. This three CDROM set contains a year's worth of lessons in consumer mathematics. The SwitchedOn Schoolhouse program creates an interactive learning environment by combining written instruction with video clips, audio clips, animation, and vocabulary games (that's right, even in math it's important to learn the appropriate vocabulary). Like other SwitchedOn Schoolhouse subjects, this computerbased course is NOT intended for selfstudy. Personal instruction is required. This software is not intended to replace the teacher, but to free up some of the teacher's time by taking care of administrative tasks such as grading and writing lesson plans. This course consists of the following ten units: basic math review, personal finance, statistics, taxes & insurance, banking & credit goods, purchase & sale of goods, leisure & travel & retirement, jobrelated services, and consumer math review. Each unit contains approx. twenty lessons, two to five quizzes, and one unit test. Once the teacher sets up the student calendar, lesson plans are automatically generated by evenly spreading the course work over the total number of school days. Up to five students can be registered on this software, and access for each student is password protected. One feature I really enjoyed using was the message posting system. Before each new lesson, the teacher can skim the material and post hints or explanations to potentially confusing sections. During the lesson, the student can read these messages and post his or her own comments and questions (which is really useful if the teacher is not onhand to answer questions when the lesson is actually completed). The more familiar the teacher is with the course content, the easier it will be to answer student questions, especially since answer keys, but not solutions, are provided. Although no recommended grade levels were given, I would consider this elective a high school level course. System requirements: Windows Vista (Service Pack 2)/Windows 7/ Windows 8 & 8.1 / Windows 10; CDROM drive and printer (recommended).  Anh

For the dedicated math student who wants to push the envelope, here you go. Join Fred at Kittens University for the summer session – at least for the first five days – in which he lectures (from 4am8am) on, respectively, Set Theory, Modern Algebra, Abstract Arithmetic, and Topology. Prerequisites for this course include more than a passing knowledge of algebra as well as a course in Geometry that taught and required proofs. Prior algebra instruction should have included:
 • Union of sets
 • Math induction
 • Associative property
 • Onetoone functions
 • Inverse functions
 • Multiplying matrices
As you can see, this includes most high school seniors. However, final prerequisites I would add are an appreciation for math, an ability to think outside the book, ability for creative thought, and a willingness to take a peek at "real" math. I got this opportunity when I took some upperlevel university math courses. There is truly a "magic" and beauty to math (which Prof. Schmidt alludes to in the introduction to this book) that most people never get to experience. If your student would like to experience the same, I heartily recommend this summer session with Fred.
Unlike other LOF books, there is no real storyline outside of Fred's lectures. There are fun puzzles (which look suspiciously like proofs, for the most part) to solve  139 of them that require thought, creativity, and, for some, dedication. Some are easily solved, others are going to take some time. Solutions to all exercises are in the back of the book. If your student loves math or just wants to get a glimpse of higher level math, this course is a great introduction to math beyond calculus.

Designed to prepare students with the business skills necessary to manage a company or to be a perceptive employee who understands the intricacies of running a successful business, this onesemester course covers a wide range of practical concepts.
Within the textbook are thirteen chapters, each providing anywhere from two to five lessons, an application situation with discussion questions and a chapter review. Also included is a section focused on the review of basic math skills which covers place value, rounding, adding/subtracting whole numbers, multiplying/dividing whole numbers, exponents, order of operations, fractions, common denominators, decimals, and scientific notation. An included retirement planning guide will help students intelligently prepare for their future. Technology connections are sprinkled throughout the lessons. A glossary and various math formula guides complete the text. It is worth noting that there are no answers provided.
Diverse topics are covered and include wages, computing hours worked, tips, commissions, raises/bonuses, benefits, profit sharing, employee ownership, stock options, various business types (manufacturing, retail, sales, service, and nonprofits), the role of human resource departments (including hiring, employee performance and labor issues), business travel and expenses, corporate banking (simple and compound interest, credit lines, cash flow and production payment costs), business operation expenses, casualty insurance, government regulations, risks of business ownership, sales and marketing, and the ins and outs of mail order businesses.
One thing I really appreciate about this book is the reading and comprehension level. While many business math or consumer math courses are written at the upper high school and college levels, this course has been written at a 3rd4th grade reading level, allowing nearly all young people to learn these vital skills. While some of the information may be outdated (copyright 2002), the skills taught are timeless, providing students an excellent introduction to real life math applications. HC. 326 pgs. ~Deanne

Yes, a book that covers all the math you'll ever NEED. Numbers are everywhere, like it or not, and are a very important part of our lives. A surprising percent of people are mathematically illiterate and have trouble doing even grade school math without using a calculator. But this book makes us use our brains so we can once more solve problems in our heads or on paper, without depending on a calculator! A good refresher course for high schoolers, college graduates, or even adults, the 24 chapters go through math from the multiplication table to personal finances, to business math. Advanced word problems, interest rates, exponents and square roots, and much more are covered. Selftests are included starting in chapter three, with at least two selftests in every chapter. If you're inclined to skip some chapters, it's good to take the selftests anyway, to see how well you really know that area. Don't feel intimidated by numbers any longer! Push aside that calculator dependency and use your head!  Megan

This is a very extensive writing lesson book providing detailed, thorough instruction in many areas of writing that students need to master for success in college. It's probably not geared toward students who hate writing, because although it's easy to read, it provides no extra "fluff" to get students interested – it just gets right to the point. It focuses primarily on ways to master writing skills for compositions, term papers, essays, SAT essays, theses, and dissertations. Unlike a lot of writing books, this one doesn't define writing terms, focus on grammar, or review areas of writing before suggesting how to improve your skills. It assumes the student has basic writing skills and does not need to be told what brainstorming or essays are, or what's expected in a research paper. It really just goes through different areas of writing and shows students some faster, better ways of writing a variety of different assignments and getting good grades on them. The book is broken up into five sections. The first covers compositions and gives tips and guidelines for prewriting; argumentative, descriptive, and explanatory writing; editing; style; and more. The second covers writing about complex subjects and instructs students how to write in the fields of business, science, technology, statistics, and public finance. Not just writing techniques are included here, it also touches on key information you need to know about these areas in order to write about them effectively. The third deals with the term paper and highlights the Internet's best research sources; discusses format and organization; covers preparing tables, graphs, and other illustrations; and more. The final section focuses primarily on college admission essays and how to write the perfect kind of essay that colleges are looking for. While the text instructs, it has a nice, conversational flow to it and uses examples of both good and bad writing. No real exercises are given; the book simply prompts students to apply the tips to papers they are assigned in other classes. This is a perfect book for a competent writer who wants to become more advanced and prepared for college, and it is a great reference tool on organizing and presenting material. Note: This is the 4th edition of the book formerly titled How to Write Themes and Term Papers. 318 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel
