    Leroy Shrode has combined a detailed geometry textbook with what would normally be a companion workbook so that all the materials are in one place. A new paradigm to me, the answer key to the chapters and unit tests are located at the very front of the book instead of the end - I don't know why - and perforated for easy removal. Shrode states that the real purpose of this book is to teach the student how to think logically rather than mastering geometry. That said, he packs a whole lot of geometry in the 201 pages of text/workbook and 36 pages of unit tests. I remember geometry fondly from my high school days, especially since it solidified my interest in mathematics in general. I'm a very visual person, and the concepts of geometry brought that to bear in my studies like none of my previous math classes could. Shrode's presentation of the subject is very reminiscent of my experiences way back when, especially in the way he helps the student with some prompting at the beginning to nudge them in the right direction without doing all of the work for them. This is definitely not a "fun" book, nor is it colorful by any stretch of the imagination (the only thing I think it lacks), yet it moves the student fairly quickly but thoroughly through the concepts. A good book for the self-disciplined student with an interest in math. ~ Tom

    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. 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 include a Teacher's Guide that includes a course syllabus, a test grading guide and grade sheets (either in printed, bound form or as pdf files that can be printed at home). The Geometry material provides an alternate testing option utilizing problems from the text, making the test book optional.~ Janice

    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.

    Beginning with Geometry, fewer MUS manipulatives are used and students will need a protractor, compass, and straight edge.

    The Universal Set no longer includes manipulatives, but does provide everything necessary for the course including: Instruction Manual with complete solutions, Instruction DVD, Student Workbook, Test book, and 12 months of access to the respective Digital package.

     The Student Edition begins with an explanation of the book and its content and a reference page for customary and metric measures. Each chapter begins by a statement of objectives, explanation of the concept being covered with examples, classroom exercises and written exercises. Self-tests are found mid-chapter, and algebra and mixed reviews prepare you for the next lesson or chapter. A chapter review and chapter test are found at the end of each chapter; these are different from those found in the Teacher Edition and are not reproducible. The chapter reviews have reference numbers for each section, for the lesson in which that concept was presented. Even numbered chapters are followed by a section titled, “Preparing for College Entrance Exams,” which is a multiple-choice test with questions like those found in some college entrance exams. Answers are provided for all mixed reviews, self-tests, “Preparing for College Entrance Exams,” odd-numbered problems for written exercises, chapter reviews, and cumulative reviews. A section of reference pages is also found at the back of the book that includes multiple-choice chapter examinations, lists of postulates, theorems, constructions, glossary, Handbook for Integrating Coordinate and Transformational Geometry, and more. 740 pg, hc.
