    While able to be used with any geometry program, it is designed specifically for use with Discovering Geometry and Jacob's Geometry. It's very easy to make just about anything in Sketchpad: you can simply highlight points and make circles about them, draw line, bisect line and angles, and measure them with only a click of the button. You can type on your sketch, name points, lines, and angles, plot graphs and prove proofs. You can also import and transform images. One of the coolest things (my brother got a kick out of this) is that you can even do limited animation! Very simple to use, and an excellent aid for any geometry student, I highly recommend getting into it. Please note that it is a downloadable application, not a CD-ROM, so you will need internet access to enter the code enclosed and download the program. System requirements: Windows XP or later, Mac OS 10.4 or later (PowerPC-based system) 300 MB free disk space, internet access. ~ Mark

      Jacob Tibbs is a cat, and the runt of the litter, to boot. He lives on a ship with his mother (Mrs. Tibbs) who has a stellar reputation as a ratter. Their adventure across the Atlantic in the 1840s is exciting! The story is about Jacob’s world, including the sailors on board the Melissa Rae. While this makes for a great family or classroom read-aloud, there are some topics to note: death of people and animals, talk of slave ships, someone with scars on their back, scary storms and rats. It’s a must-read for animal lovers, especially those of us who love our cats. Did you know ship cats could predict the weather? By author Cylin Busby. 266 pgs, pb. ~ Sara

    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 non-Euclidean 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.

    Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm, more commonly known as the brothers Grimm, were born in Germany. They had a dream to collect all of the old fairy tales of Germany before they were lost and forgotten. Although they read and researched, most of the stories came from being passed down through the generations. The brothers collected 200 tales, and published them in two volumes. This book contains 55 of their stories, some you may recognize, and others you won't. Even if they are familiar, this is probably a version different than you have seen. Either way, you will enjoy these fairy tales, some dark and some merry. Occasional black line drawings illustrate the story. 342 pgs.

    With the same quality presentation, you have come to expect from Cassidy Callahan, fromAskDr.Callahan.com, DVDs have minor edits to align them with the new printing of Jacob's Elementary Algebra from Master Books. Each set of DVDs provides approximately 12 hours of lesson lectures that parallel the respective texts. Concepts are illustrated and problems (like those in the text) are worked on a white or black board behind the lecturer. There is an occasional use of illustrative videos which provides a break from the teaching environment. Solutions for assignment problems are not worked on the DVDs. Content is compatible with any 3rd edition Jacob's Algebra.

    Jacobs' math courses – Elementary Algebra and Geometry: Seeing, Doing, Understanding – are known for their clear explanations and strong, college-prep math. However, they've lacked the depth of teacher support (complete solutions manuals and teaching videos) available for other courses, making them less user-friendly for homeschoolers. The Ask Dr. Callahan series ends that! Each set of DVDs provides approximately 12 hours of lesson lectures that parallel the respective texts. Concepts are illustrated and problems (similar to those in the text) are worked on a white or black board behind the lecturer. There is an occasional use of illustrative videos which provides a break from the teaching environment. Solutions for assignment problems are not worked on the DVDs. The general feel of these DVDs is unscripted and casual rather than slickly professional. Dr. Dale Callahan is the instructor for the Geometry DVDs. The Algebra course is taught by Cassidy Callahan, who is also the author behind the Elementary Algebra Solutions Manual – a new publication from Jacobs - which shows solutions for all problems. In addition to the support offered to confused students by the DVDs themselves, there is more. Both courses are supported online via email answers (askdrcallahan.com) and the website also has a support page that answers common questions and is constantly expanding. One interesting aspect of the Geometry DVDs is the parallel that is drawn with logic arguments which occasionally include examples of biblical apologetics. Some basic equipment is required to complete the geometry constructions in that course. We'll be adding a set soon that includes this equipment: a compass, 6" ruler, 180 degree protractor, 45 degree triangle, 60 degree triangle, automatic pencil, eraser and spare leads.

    Both DVD sets come with a printed Teacher's Guide that includes a course syllabus, tests (more about these in a minute), a test grading guide and grade sheets.

      This non-illustrated and unabridged biography by the famous 19th century historian and author Jacob Abbott, provides readers with a solid understanding of the life and times of the Russian Tsar known as Peter the Great.

Not suitable for students below the seventh grade, or for readers of any age who struggle to read small print. 110 pgs, pb. ~ Mike
