    This software, now packaged in a USB flash drive format, contains a year's worth of lessons in consumer mathematics. The Switched-On 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 Switched-On Schoolhouse subjects, this computer-based course is NOT intended for self-study. 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, job-related 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 on-hand 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. I would consider this elective a high school level course. System requirements: Windows 7/ Windows 8 & 8.1 / Windows 10; printer recommended. - Anh

    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

    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. -Enh

    You've made it to high school and math is still a challenge for you. A little review and practice is all you need for the math basics to click, and now you're ready to move on to the next math level. The Practice makes Perfect: Basic Math offers over 500 exercises in the areas of number sense, calculation, algebraic reasoning, geometric relationships, and statistical thinking. Basic math skills are imperative for passing the GED and/or preparing for community college, and this book reviews the basics – multiplication, division, negative numbers, square roots, fractions, and more. 184 pages of clear explanations, examples, and practice provide help for the struggling student and prep for standardized testing. The book is not reproducible and the answer key is found at the back. pb. ~ Donna

    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 full-year credits (1 credit per subject). The lesson plans are designed for the students to work independently the majority of the week, with a parent-student 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.

    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 4am-8am) 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
    • • One-to-one 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 upper-level 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.

    Learn about scale and proportion with this humorous, whimsical story. Set in the old frontier town of Cowlick, two barbers compete to drive each other out of town. The key to barber Louie's success has been surprising his clients with haircuts resembling various objects, all cut to scale. For example, Louie can sculpt large objects (such as a horse or a stagecoach) out of a person's hair because he knows how to measure and calculate proportionately. His rival, barber Buzzsaw, is skilled at the opposite type of haircuts that make smaller objects appear bigger. Can the barbers learn to work together?
