    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".

    If you can sing, you can learn! Sing 2 Learn is an audiovisual program that teaches foreign language to kids with catchy, appealing songs. Using a full immersion approach (no English), each course component contains 15 songs that teach basic vocabulary on an audio CD and DVD. The DVD's feature animated children going about their daily routines at home, in the neighborhood, and in school while the songs play. Subtitled lyrics appear in the target language so you can sing along (again, no English here). As students listen and sing, they learn and retain the vocabulary quicker than if they were merely studying a textbook. Repetition is the key!

    A songbook is included with each CD/DVD. It has lyrics to the 15 songs, both in the target language and with English words and phrases off to the side. Complete song translations are in the back. The CD and DVD store easily in vinyl pockets inside the back book cover. There is some general instruction how to use the program and what you can expect from your student as they work through the levels. (See our website for information on the topics covered at each level.). 52 pgs, pb.

    The Beginner level of the program is recommended for grades PK-2. No textbook is used at this level, as the emphasis is on auditory learning.

    Intermediate level 1 is intended for grades 3-4, and Intermediate levels 2 and 3 are for grades 5-6. These levels introduce more advanced vocabulary than the beginning levels, with the addition of a textbook component. (As of press time, we are unable to provide detailed information on the textbooks. However, according to the publisher, "Textbook and workbook exercises reinforce vocabulary and introduce grammatical patterns learned through songs and animations.")

    Each Combo set includes the song book, music CD and animated DVD for the relevant level. Textbooks are sold separately. ~Sara/Lisa

      Geometry meets Chess meets Math; that's the best way to describe this intense strategy game. Each player begins with 10 geometric shapes, such as Cubes, Cones, Pyramids, etc. These pieces all have three traits associated with them: Volume, Area, and Flat Surfaces. These are ranked in order from “most” to “least”; higher-ranked pieces capture lower-ranked pieces. So, while Squares may have the largest volume for their size, Cones have the largest area, and the Dodecahedron has the largest flat surfaces. But the trait used to determine “piece strength” changes over the course of the game; for example, if the strength changes from Area to Flat surfaces, a Cone will drop from Rank 1 (most powerful) to Rank 8 (least powerful) in the blink of an eye! Players also receive two "special" shapes: the Sphere and the Helix. The Helix trumps all other pieces, while the Sphere is trumped by all other pieces. Piece by piece, players move one or two spaces across the board capturing and avoiding other players’ pieces until their (defenseless!) sphere reaches the center of the board. The first person to do so wins the game. While the primary focus of this game is strategy, players will pick up a quick-reference knowledge of shapes & geometry along the way. For 2-4 players; 45 minutes.
