Teaching Textbooks review, non grade specific, homeschool math curriculum for 2nd grade through pre-calculus. I just wanted to share our experiences and potential pitfalls with Teaching Textbooks. We have used pre-algebra, algebra 1 and algebra 2 and plan to transition our upcoming 2nd grader to Teaching Textbooks when we feel he is ready. To download placement tests, go here: http://www.teachingtextbooks.com/v/vspfiles/tt/Placement.htm To purchase this program or get more info, go here: http://www.teachingtextbooks.com I mentioned needing to get software updates, which can be found here: http://www.teachingtextbooks.com/v/updates.html UPDATE: My oldest has taken one official timed practice SAT and got 1180, and ironically got 590 on both the math and LA portions. This is in the 75th percentile. This was his baseline test as we start prepping for the official test and I see a lot of room for improvement as I can tell there were quite a few math problems that were missed just because of a misinterpretation of the question. To hats off to TT - it's been a struggle to get through but he DOES know the material he needs to know. Just thought I'd throw this out there for those who might be wondering if it will prep kids for college. :)
Basic principles when using Math Mammoth placement tests (which are work as free math assessment tests): - choose a test you THINK your student will pass - based on the results, you may need to administer the next lower or higher level test also... or in some cases, even three tests to get a good grasp of what your student knows and doesn't know. - if a student does well overall, except in one particular area (such as geometry) consider administering parts of the lower level tests in that area The tests are available at: https://www.mathmammoth.com/complete/placement_tests.php
In this video I review Saxon Math 3. We will look at the Teacher Edition, Student Workbooks, Fact Cards, and Manipulatives. This is a very in-depth review, so hang in there if you're looking for lots of information on this program.
Hi Friends!! Have you heard about #TeachingTextbooks and wondered what all the hoopla was about?? Well, in today’s video I will give you the scoop on this software based #homeschool math curriculum!! I’ll share: - our family’s history with Teaching Textbooks - a tour through the Teaching Textbooks program - our kids’ opinions about Teaching Textbooks - the Pro’s and Con’s of Teaching Textbooks - my personal recommendation regarding Teaching Textbooks *** Please share your comments and questions about Teaching Textbooks in the comments section below! We would LOVE to hear from YOU!! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Although it would be great to borrow Teaching Textbooks or buy it second hand, it is difficult to do so because it is a software. Once purchased, you must enter a unique code that comes with your specific CD-ROMs and it can only be used so many times before it is void.

http://saxonmathwarrior.com I wrote the biography, John Saxon's Story, a genius of common sense in math education, to memorialize the life of a powerful teacher, author, and publisher. Before retiring in 2006, I had witnessed success with Saxon materials as a K-12 principal/teacher on an Indian reservation and as the principal of an 80% white, upper middle class school in Seattle, WA. My students excelled in math. Several of the elementary teachers admitted they understood math "for the first time." Why, then, did John Saxon and his program become so hated by national and state leaders, district bureaucrats and many teachers? For one thing, he told them the disastrous results in math education have been due to their bad decision-making. Those decisions impacted the performance of teachers and students and they needed to accept responsibility for the disaster. That was not well received. They, unwisely, declared war on him. The book chronicles the battles of this ridiculed West Point graduate who held three engineering degrees, was a Korean War hero and test pilot among future astronauts, and an instructor at the U.S. Air Force Academy. He was not the dummy portrayed by math education leaders. In the battles, John Saxon would find his greatest passion in fighting a "good war" to save American math education. For that, he is still honored by tens of thousands of students and parents today. (More than half of America's 1.5 million homeschooled students use his materials.)
