    Another uncluttered, fresh-looking math course from author Christy Walters. Again, I love that the book is addressed to the student, has plenty of workspace for problem-solving, and uses a no-nonsense approach. There is nothing "cute" here; just a direct, front-on approach to learning math. If you are not familiar with the Algebra courses, PLEASE READ description of Algebra: A Fresh Approach, as all of the same applies here. If you have used the Algebra I course above, you will equally enjoy Geometry.

    In the Geometry book, I like that she begins with a mini logic course (much like Jacobs). Instead of waiting until introducing geometric theorems to have the student begin doing proofs, she immediately introduces them in the context of what the student already knows (using algebraic principles). In this way, proofs are not a "new" thing used to prove just geometry theorems, but are familiar to the student as an extension and organization of logical thought. Although non-Euclidean geometry is an interesting topic in the Jacobs book, your math-reluctant student will appreciate not having to deal with such abstract concepts here. For a more complete idea of the scope and sequence of this course (and other geometry courses, for comparison), please visit our website to view the table of contents.

    The thirteen chapters are broken into parts (lessons) with direct instruction followed by problems. Again, I like the self-discovery incorporated into the exercises as well as the short-answer questions, which require the student to put principles into words. The last part of each chapter is a mixed review including material from previous sections and chapters of the book. While the book is thick (730 pages before the answers to odd-problems section), the larger typeset font is easy on the eye and the less bulky text per page helps the instruction seem less intimidating and overwhelming. Since this book is intended for use between Algebra I and Algebra II, there is an Appendix devoted to a review of algebraic concepts. This is a great mini-refresher course and I am glad to see it all in one place at the end of the book rather than parceled out in the middle of the geometry course. I found the latter approach to be unnecessarily distracting in the Jacobs book.

    Another notable feature of this series is the ability to work directly in the book or to photocopy the student problem pages rather than recopying the problems and working on a separate sheet of paper. In the geometry course, this goes a step further in the inclusion of blank coordinate graphs on problems that require them.

    I really like this math series and would recommend it to any student, but particularly for children who seem confused by other math courses and for children who are working grade-levels ahead. It is a good text for the easily-distracted and math-phobic student as well – who needs to see things organized clearly and appreciates the less-cluttered feel of the text. If your child has had difficulty using other math programs, don't throw in the towel until you've tried "A Fresh Approach".

    100 paper origami puzzles require you to transform each 3.5" sheet into a square shape so that only black shows on one side and only white on the other side. They start off simple and become more challenging. Great for an individual, or pass out a few around the table and see who finishes first! ~ Sara

    A safe, plastic compass (no sharp points, made with SAFE-T plastic) that lays flat on your paper. Held in place with one finger while you insert a pen or other writing implement in a drawing guide hole. It's called a Bullseye compass because of the Direct View compass point which allows you to exactly place the center of the circle at any point. A sliding radius indicator lets you select radius in metric or standard units. Holes in the indicator that line up with the arrows provide extremely accurate construction. The compass also has a built-in protractor for measuring and constructing angles and the radius arm doubles as a ruler with both standard and metric markings.

    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, pop-ups, lift-flaps, spinners, colorful cartoon-like illustrations, and a wealth of understandable information, this book intends to "hook" your kids (and you) on the "amazingness" of math. ~ Janice

    This kit includes the contents of #49103 plus the VideoText Interactive Algebra Module A. What makes this set different than the set sold by Activities for Learning is that they include instructions on how to incorporate the VideoText Module A along with the RightStart Geometry which aren't included in our kit. If you feel confident that you can teach this course without the instruction provided by Activities for Learning, then this kit will work for you.

    An alternative to copying appendix pages from the back of the lesson manuals, this packet includes pages printed on cardstock and paper with the corresponding appendix page printed at the top, and some of them have multiple copies as required for lessons. These are copies of the reproducible pages only, not the reference pages found in the appendices.

    Explore math concepts in a fun, unique way with the Tree Blocks Math Kit! This set contains 66 rustic blocks cut from tree limbs in sizes from 1 cm to 12 cm, a stand with cm ruler (hewn from wood) 2 number dice, 1 color die, and about 90 activity cards. A few other cards included in the set offer tips for use, a materials list, and NCTM standards supported by the activities in this set. There are three levels of activity cards – level 1 is appropriate for PK/K, level 2 for 1st/2nd, and level 3 for 3rd/4th. Some activities require items found around your home, such as a plastic bucket, plastic cups, paper plates, colored sticky dots (like you would use for marking items in a garage sale), chart paper, bucket balance, etc. Adaptation of the activities can make them usable for multiple age groups with practice in the areas of measurement, data analysis & probability, geometry, algebra, and number & operations. Some activities include finding similar weights of the blocks, playing a matching game, measuring blocks, and find a missing number. Some activities may seem simplistic, but all work to instill math or pre-math concepts. Cut from tree limbs, these blocks aren't uniform in width, but the thickness or height is the unit of measure.

    So, enough about math - remember they're blocks too! Not only can you do the activities included and make up your own, but you can also build with them! Building helps develop fine motor skills, spatial awareness, and critical thinking. There are many reasons to buy blocks, and this unique set provides multiple opportunities for education and fun! ~ Donna

    Practicing any skill can become boring. Sometimes, you need to mix it up a little; vary the routine for a little burst of motivation. Instead of using a "just practice problems" book, this one has an added incentive for completing each page. While the title makes the book sound like just a graphing book, its 56 activity sheets actually practice a wide variety of math skills. Besides obviously familiarizing your child with a coordinate grid, graphing, and negative numbers, this book has engaging exercises to review: basic operations with integers, basic operations with variables, prime numbers, factors, GCF, operations with fractions, percents, ratio and proportion, mean, mode, reading graphs, rounding, absolute value, money, sequences, logic, geometry, probability, and word problems. There are about 10 problems per sheet (labeled A-J). The inducement for solving the problems on each worksheet is discovering the picture formed when solutions are graphed. After students solve a page, they place the answers in blanks to form sets of coordinate points. Answers are used multiple times and placed in blanks corresponding to the letter of the answer. Points are plotted on a coordinate graph and lines drawn connecting points in sets (an END OF LINE marks the end of each set). When all the lines are drawn, a picture is formed. I have seen books like this for younger students, but this one is unique in that it is for middle school grades with resulting pictures correspondingly more complex (helicopter, airplane, eagle, windmill, etc.). Pages are all reproducible as are the two formats of blank graphing paper with axes. Book may be used as a consumable if you cut off the answers on the bottom of each page. Reduced graphs showing completed drawings are at the end of the book. Use these worksheets to practice or reinforce specific skills or use them once a week as review. If your child enjoys a bit of creativity with her math practice, she'll relish creating pictures using math skills (and a pencil!).

    This new edition of Exploring Creation with Chemistry makes chemistry approachable and doable in a homeschool setting. Now authored by Kristy Plourde, you will notice a few changes from previous editions.

    The chapter order has been changed from the previous editions (1st and 2nd) of the curriculum. There are still 16 modules measurement, units, and the scientific method, atoms and molecules, atomic structure, molecular structure, polyatomic ions and molecular geometry, changes in matter and chemical reactions, describing chemical reactions, stoichiometry, acid-base chemistry, chemistry of solutions, gas phase, energy/heat and temperature, thermodynamics, kinetics, chemical equilibrium, and reduction-oxidation reactions. The front of the book offers a suggestion on how to use the book and the length of time typically spent to complete the course. "On Your Own" questions are found throughout the modules and are to be completed as the student reads the text answers are included at the end of the module. "Review Question" and "Practice Problems" are found at the end of each module to help students recall and apply important concepts presented in that module. The text is generous with examples, illustrations, and photos for clarity of concepts.

    Some helpful resources are found at the back of the text glossary, tables/laws/equations, extra practice problems for each module, and a complete list of lab supplies.

    Experiments are homeschool-friendly and can be completed using the lab kit (#008778) that is assembled by Nature's Workshop and items that are easily accessible. If you want to do more advanced experiments, you can purchase the MicroChem Lab Kit (#020028). These experiments aren't printed in the student text, but are mentioned and marked by a flask and test tube symbol along with where that experiment can be found in the MicroChem Manual. The experiments in this 3rd edition are a combination of some new ones and the tried-and-true from the previous editions. If you don't want or need to purchase the lab kit (#008778), the required items to complete experiments are a 1 mass scale (0 to 500 grams), blue and red litmus paper, 1 thermometer (-10 to 110 degrees C). If you have these three items, the text makes suggestions within the experiments for household substitutions of the other items needed.

    A special website is available to accompany this course, offering web links and additional information for specific concepts. The web address is printed in the front of the text with instructions for access. Textbook is now in the 4th printing. ~ Donna.

    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 'no-nonsense' 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 self-contained lessons can change the world of algebra for your student. 280 pgs, pb. ~ Donna
