    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

    Student Packages include student worktext and test booklet.

    Consumable student worktext contains a mix of practice problems and word problems. Space is provided to work out the problems, but some students may prefer having access to "scratch paper" to work problems, especially at the higher levels. The front of the student worktext includes space to record grades for worksheet pages and tests. Consumable test booklet is provided to evaluate student progress. Parents are encouraged to reteach previous lessons if the student does not do well. Mastery is the goal, and lessons build upon one another so that future success is dependent on students really knowing the previous concept.

       Learn logic in a day!  That is, a day in the life of Fred.  Here is a complete coverage of logic in a mere 176 pages.  No ancillaries required.  That’s right.  No separate teacher book, no test pack, no workbook needed.  It’s all right here – the whole “Kittens” caboodle.  Fred, now six (and still a professor at Kittens U), is preparing to give a logic lecture.  Ironically, and somewhat conveniently, Duck (first introduced in Life of Fred: Apples) pays Fred a visit and provides ample fodder for some of the first topics covered in the book.  Duck, who always speaks in sentences that are false, helps to illustrate both logic sentence structure and the concept of every sentence being True or False.  As always, Dr. Schmidt manages to both entertain and train.  Along with the levity and random bits of eclectic knowledge provided in chapter 1, Dr. Schmidt gets right down to introducing us to both pure and applied logic and the language of logic (the use of symbols, modeling, and structures) – all in the first few pages of the book.   From there, the course progresses through the topics of truth tables, connectives, the language of logic, inductive vs. deductive reasoning, logic fallacies (covered all in ONE conversation), and predicate logic.  These first six chapters provide a complete high school logic course.  Once logic as a second language is mastered, working through the remaining ten chapters is the equivalent of completing a college-level logic course.   This part of the course is more heavily theoretical.  It uses the structures and models learned in the first part of the course, progressing to proofs, introducing more complex structures and lemmas, and giving much thought to Gödel’s Incompleteness Theorem.   No prerequisites are required to begin this course, though I think it would help if your student had completed Algebra and Geometry before tackling it.  While the math skills themselves are not needed, the ability to reason well and think logically (and somewhat mathematically) is.  There are no exercises to complete, though there are 99 “puzzles” to solve.  In addition to a very alert and thoughtful mind, familiarity with and understanding of symbolic language, proofs, combinations, set theory, and other topics typically covered in higher-level math would aid solutions.  As far as teaching time, there is none.  The course is totally self-instructional.  Instruction is directed to the student/reader and all answers are included in the back of the book.  Dr. Schmidt goes to great lengths as the book’s narrator to make sure the student does not take the easy road and check the answers before first exercising his/her brain.  He also already anticipates questions and objections the student might have, with many “reader” interjections, shown in distinctive font, at these points.   One quibble I have with the book (and a caution to parents) is Dr. Schmidt’s unnecessary incorporation of drugs (cocaine) and drinking used in one of the early examples in the book.   I can guess the reason for this, but I wish he had considered another option….  This course will appeal most to those who enjoy math, enjoy Fred, and enjoy a good story along with their study.

    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.
