Math-U-See Geometry: Math-U-See is a complete, skill-based mastery curriculum for grades K-12. Designed to teach students specific skills in a definite, logical sequence, this systematic and cumulative approach will help students learn how to solve math problems and discover why they're solved in such a way. The Math-U-See system features step-by-step procedures for introducing, reviewing, practicing, and mastering concepts with each lesson. Teachers watch the video lesson to learn the new concept and how to demonstrate it; they then present the new concept to the student; finally, students practice the new concept using lesson practice problems from the student workbook. Student-paced, teachers are given clear guidelines for determining when students have achieved mastery and are ready to move to the next lesson or level. This Geometry Universal Set includes everything you need for the Geometry level, including the Instruction Manual, Instruction DVD, Student Workbook, Tests Booklet and lifetime access to the Geometry Digital Pack. The Geometry level covers points, lines, planes, angles, circles, triangles, quadrilaterals, the Pythagorean Theorem, conic sections, proofs and more.
Apologia Chemistry: Give your student a firm understanding of the basics of chemistry with Apologia's Exploring Creation with Chemistry, 3rd Edition. Sixteen modules cover measurement & units, atoms & molecules, atomic structure, molecular structure, polyatomic ions and molecular geometry, stoichiometry, acid-base chemistry, thermodynamics, kinetics, chemical equilibrium, and more. Experiments are designed for home-use, though some more "specialized" equipment is required; they include measuring specific heat, discovering the electrical conductivity of compounds dissolved in water, measuring the width of a molecule, exploring freezing point depression, using the ideal gas equation, recognizing the effects of catalysts, and more. Lessons integrate "on your own" questions to check for review and comprehension throughout the lesson, as well as examples, tables, and images where helpful. Modules end with a "study guide" that includes review questions and practice questions, along with answers to the "on your own" questions. Each of the 16 modules should take students approximately 2 weeks to complete at 1 hour of study per day at a minimum; the course itself should take 32 weeks to complete.
Notgrass World History: From Creation to the 21st century, Exploring World History presents ancient, medieval, and modern history from the perspective of faith in God and respect for His Word. It offers a thorough survey of Western civilization with significant coverage of Latin America, Africa, and Asia. The hardcover books feature hundreds of full-color photographs and illustrations. Completing the full course provides your child with a year's high school credit in World History, English, and Bible. Depending on how fast your child reads and how much time he spends on the unit projects, he may need an average of 2-3 hours for each daily lesson. The history credit involves reading the lessons and the original documents (and answering the questions in the optional Student Review if desired). The English credit involves completing writing assignments and reading the assigned literature. The Bible credit involves reading large portions of the Bible and completing the Bible study lesson for each unit. The unit projects offer a wide variety of activities that tie into history, English, and Bible and covers all three subjects.
