The full color Student Text offers a thorough study of Euclidean geometry beginning with an introduction to geometry then topics builds incrementally nature of deductive reasoning, lines & angles, congruence, inequalities, parallel lines, quadrilaterals, transformations, area, similarity, right triangle, circles, concurrence theorems, regular polygons and the circle, geometric solids, and nonEuclidean Geometries. Each chapter ends with review and a midterm and final review. For every lesson, there are three sets of exercises all three practice the concepts presented, but the third set may offer a bit more challenge. Each exercise assumes knowledge gained in previous lessons in order to construct proofs. An appendix containing a glossary, all presented theorems, postulates, and formulas, and selected answers to exercises is most helpful.

Second Edition materials are now available for the K and 1st grade courses. These materials reflect an obvious graphics and appearance update as well as a complete lesson "redo." The courses have retained all of their many excellent features but there are some differences – welcome ones, I might add. In general, within the colorful and engaging books there is a greater emphasis on skill development, mastery, cumulative review and formative assessment. The STAR methodology is still foundational but there is a greater emphasis on STEM's interdisciplinary approach. Chapter assessments are available in a traditional test format as well as in an editable test bank. Lessons include handson activities, conceptual understanding, problem solving, application, modeling, reasoning, and strands of algebra and geometry. The many course resources found on the included CDROM and PowerPoint presentations (editable) have been added to the blackline masters, transparency masters, memory masters, and test banks. Software links have been removed altogether – a good call since they are difficult to keep updated. Cumulative reviews are provided every third chapter and a comprehensive yearend cumulative review is usable as the next grade's preassessment test. Although in this edition, the daily Moments with the Master has disappeared, there is still a chapter emphasis on Biblical worldview and the Life in the Sea theme is still part of the First Grade material. Second edition Teacher's Manuals are even more userfriendly and attractive (and they were excellent before); reduced color copies of the student pages are found in the TM. Also, the TM format matches the other Purposeful Design Bible and Science courses. As with the previous edition, the 176 daily lessons each include an introduction, directed instruction, and lesson review. "Around the edges" topics include lesson objections, vocabulary, preparation (materials list is in chapter overview), extension, recovery, and enrichment activities, as well as key ideas. I'm glad to see this quality update of an excellent math series. ~ Janice

My daughter majored in math and physics, my husband is an engineer, and I have always been good at math. But it took this book for me to understand tessalations. A fascinating introduction to various, intriguing aspects of numbers (triangular numbers), statistics (pictograms), geometry (the golden rectangle loved by the ancient Greeks), measurement (the man who measured the earth), transformations (where tessalations come in), probability (lottery chances), and sequences (fibonacci numbers), this book will also acquaint you with some of the historical "biggies" of mathematics. With oversized, heavy cardstock paper, popups, liftflaps, spinners, colorful cartoonlike illustrations, and a wealth of understandable information, this book intends to "hook" your kids (and you) on the "amazingness" of math. ~ Janice

From America's Math Teacher, Richard W. Fisher, comes a very straightforward and logical approach to mastering algebraic concepts. From the beginning of the book to the end, each lesson builds on previous knowledge in a very 'nononsense' fashion. The book is divided into chapters – tools for algebra, solving equations, graphing and analyzing linear equations, solving and graphing inequalities, systems of linear equations and inequalities, polynomials, rational expressions, radical expressions and geometry, quadratic equations, and algebra word problems. Every chapter is divided into lessons, and every lesson is one to two pages in length and follows the same format – introduction and explanation, helpful hints, examples, written exercises, review. There is even a final exam to assess the student's understanding. A reference section at the back of the book includes lists of formulas, symbols, multiplication table, prime numbers, squares and roots, fraction/decimal equivalents, and an answer key (not solutions). The author offers 6 steps to using this book so it will be the most effective. 1) Read the introduction that contains essential information on the topic and includes important terms and definitions and explanations. 2) Read the 'helpful hints' section that offers tips and shortcuts. 3) Go through the examples by writing them out on your own paper, which will aid in better understanding. 4) Work the exercises, and refer back to the 'helpful hints' as needed. 5) Complete the review section. 6) Correct your work. Seems pretty easy! The bonus for this book is the free online video lessons. Mr. Fisher, America's Math Teacher, will narrate students through the concept of each lesson as writing appears on a white board. He works through some examples (different from those found in the book) using visual prompts and making suggestions for ways to remember. He suggests that the student watch the video lesson before going to the book lesson. These short concise selfcontained lessons can change the world of algebra for your student. 280 pgs, pb. ~ Donna

Twins Matt and Bibi accompany their parents to Egypt on an archaeological dig. When they are trapped in a pyramid, they must follow the hieroglyphic symbols to find the burial chamber and a way out. The hieroglyphics are made out of geometric solid symbols instead of traditional ciphers. As the twins follow clues that tell them to look for shapes with different numbers of faces, they talk about the geometric solids they encounter. It's not a thorough review of geometric solids, but it's a fun introduction that kids will enjoy, with fullcolor illustrations, puns and humor. By Cindy Neuschwander, 32 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel

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.

Exactly what was needed in the Apologia elementary science scope and
sequence – the Human Body. We waited awhile for this, but it was worth the
wait (as we knew it would be). Continuing their pattern of indepth studies,
exciting information, engaging activities, and biblical worldview, this latest
course examines the body systems – skeletal, muscular, respiratory,
digestive, cardiovascular, nervous – along with nutrition, health,
embryology, the immune system, and the major organs. It also provides a brief
history of medicine and an introduction to cell structure and DNA. Activities
within the fourteen lessons include finding blood type, making a cell model,
and building a skeleton. Oh! And be prepared! Your student will be looking for
household bacteria. ~ Janice

Birds, bugs, and bats – if it flies, it's explored in this fascinating
introduction to zoology! The first portion of the book focuses on birds and
their unique characteristics. Kids will learn bird anatomy, how they are able
to fly, why they build nests, how they raise their young, and more. They'll
also learn to identify the birds they see every day and do activities that
explore the habits and preferences of different species of birds. Students will
learn about bats, some of the most useful and wonderful flying creatures in the
world. As they study the physical characteristics and lifestyle of the bat,
they'll gain a new appreciation for these creatures. Finally, kids will get
up close and personal to the insect world. They'll learn how to identify and
classify the many different types of bugs they see, and they'll even get to
design their own experiments with different insect species. Kids will get the
opportunity to keep their own field journals as they are encouraged to be their
own scientist as they observe and understand the world around them.

Homeschool teachers will go to great lengths to help their students overcome difficulties. Take Beverly AdamsGordon, for example. An engineer and Montessori teacher, she left her teaching job to homeschool in an effort to solve her youngest daughter's severe spelling problems. Finding no suitable material, she thoroughly researched the subject and developed her own spelling curriculum.
So what is different?  * It's all in one book. One purchase for all years for all kids.
 * A chapter on research details the most effective methods of spelling instruction.
 * Complete instructions for introducing, implementing and evaluating the program. Directions are given for adapting to different learning styles and ages.
 * The program takes only 15 minutes/day.
 * Extensive Word Lists are based on research done after 1979 of most frequently used and misspelled words. Word lists used in most other programs are based on lists created in 1915 or 1947. Two lists are provided, with 5,000 and 12,000 words, respectively.
 * General and specific placement tests start each student right where he needs to be.
 * Program is based on phonics and spelling rules, not phonics alone.
 * Review is built into the program which uses a "spiral" approach (repeated and spaced review) similar to the approach Saxon takes in it's problem sets.
 * Directions for over 100 games and activities are included which concentrate on specific skills and make spelling more interesting. Most are individual or partner games, but some can be played by up to 6 players.
Now available in its 4th edition. Spelling Power retains all of its awardwinning effective procedures, but it is more userfriendly with larger type and more graphics. Easier to read and less intimidating, there is also improved organization of resources. The 4th edition Spelling Power package includes access to the Teacher's Online Resources on the publisher's website and an updated Quick Start DVD seminar. The Quick Start DVD provides a personal stepbystep introduction to using the Spelling Power program featuring author Beverly AdamsGordon who explains each step as "real" homeschool moms and students demonstrate. The Teacher's Online Resources includes printable forms, searchable word lists, charts, printable Activity Task Cards, bonus activities, and the Digital Spelling Tutor which allows you to create spelling lists for multiple children, offers learning, drill and testing activities, tracks several children's progress, allows you to create and print progress reports, and can be used with any spelling word list. Spelling Power provides the most thorough coverage of spelling that we have seen. This one is a "classic."

A wonderful unit study incorporating geography, history and science, based on the Holling C. Holling books. Students learn about three main geographic regions of the U.S. as well as a basic introduction to World geography. Designed to be used with maps (see below) that children color, label and complete as they study each region via the books. PaddletotheSea covers the Great Lakes, St. Lawrence River, and North Atlantic. Tree in the Trail includes the Great Plains and Southwest. Minn of the Mississippi leads children on an adventure down the Mississippi River and into the Gulf of Mexico. Seabird presents an overview of world geography. Pagoo follows the life of a young hermit crab, trying to grow up in a tide pool  without being eaten along the way. If you've never read a Holling C. Holling book, you're in for a treat! These are lovely, "old fashioned" books that simultaneously educate and entertain. Each blends science, history, and geography into a narrative told from the viewpoint of a central "character"'s adventures or experiences. It's difficult to imagine a more appropriate choice for studying these topics. Can be used as a onesemester course at 23 lessons per week or a 1year course at 12 lessons per week.
