MATH  "VIDEOTEXT" 3 Year Math Dvd Set Covering PreAlgebra, Algebra 1, & Algebra 2 (Modules A,B,C,D,E,F)  The DVDbased lessons of Videotext Algebra are a complete course covering Prealgebra, Algebra 1 and Algebra 2, with 176 instructor led lessons. 360 pages of course notes allow students to review the development of a concept as it follows the lesson, repeating exactly what was shown on the DVD, while the 590 pages of student work text provides a review, additional examples, and concise exercises to complete. There are solution manuals which include detailed, stepby step solutions to every problem as well as progress quizzes and tests which provide an opportunity for students to demonstrate their understanding of each lesson and unit. Two versions of the quizzes, tests, cumulative reviews, and final examinations allow for retesting or review to ensure mastery.  With each Module of the course, you receive the Dvd instructor taught lessons, course notes, work texts, solutions manuals, quizzes, progress tests, & instructor's guides with detailed solutions to all quiz and test problems, and a zippered case to hold the Dvds.  The reason that we named our program "Algebra: A Complete Course," is that we believe the best way to learn Algebra is to start at the beginning and end at the end! In this program you will find a complete study of the essential material covered in a traditional Algebra 1 and Algebra 2 course.  However, we need to continue a little further with this answer because Algebra 1 and Algebra 2 are terms that refer mostly to the traditional way that Algebra has been taught. Traditional Algebra 1 classes attempt to cover most of Algebra in the first year, but the methods that are used, and the speed with which the material is covered, hinders student understanding of the material. Instead, the student is just exposed to memorizing rules, formulas, tricks, and shortcuts. By the time they get to what is called an Algebra 2 course, (sometimes after they take a Geometry course), they have forgotten almost all of the Algebra that they memorized. So, that Algebra 2 course (which is by definition, a rehash of whatever has been called “Algebra 1”), must repeat practically all of the Algebra 1 course. In fact, it usually repeats a lot of the PreAlgebra material as well. This is usually referred to as the "spiral method" of learning, and it is not very effective in helping students to excel, especially at this level of mathematics.  We think that this huge overlap is generally unproductive, and largely unnecessary if the concepts are taught analytically. Therefore we call our program "Algebra: A Complete Course," because we employ a mastery learning approach, sometimes moving at a slower pace, but without the overlap. As a result, students often complete the course even more quickly.  When a student completes Algebra: A Complete Course, the student can claim credits for all of the following: PreAlgebra, Algebra I, Algebra II The complete 3 YEAR math program, that you can resell when you're done, for $265.00    TAPESTRY OF GRACE  Tapestry of Grace is a unit study curriculum that covers most of the major subject areas for all your students in grades K through 12. It covers the same general topics for all students simultaneously, but instruction and activities are divided into four levels of learning.  The divisions are: *Lower Grammar (Grades K3) *Upper Grammar (Grades 36) *Dialectic (Grades 69) *Rhetoric (Grades 912) There is a purposeful overlap here to address the reality that students at the same ages rarely progress at the same rate. This curriculum lasts for the full 12 years of your students' learning of history. Once they have gone through the first 4 years, they go back through again, but this time at the next level. Once they are through at that level, they go through again at the next level and so on. You will cycle through 4 times if you begin TOG in kindergarten. You can start TOG at any grade though.  Subject areas covered include history, writing, literature, fine arts, geography, church history, including missions, and Bible. TOG uses non fiction as well as fiction books. It includes multisensory learning options to address different learning styles and interests, ranging from reading, writing, comprehension/discussions questions, and simple art projects, to full costumed reenactments. Detailed lesson plans and discussion outlines enable parents to teach with confidence.  Year 1: The History of Redemption covers Creation through the fall of Rome. Comes with Loom and Map Aids. Year 1 is resalable when you're done using it. $175.00  Year 2: Between Ancient & Modern studies the medieval world through the signing of the U.S. Constitution. Comes with Loom and Map Aids. Year 2 is resalable when you're done using it.$175.00  Year 3: The Nineteenth Century addresses both American and European history. Comes with Loom and Map Aids. Year 3 is resalable when you're done using it. $175.00    Please email me if interested! Thanks!
