    The Home Study Kit includes all materials necessary for one student and one teacher for a full year of study. Algebra 2 Kits include a textbook, test forms and an answer booklet. Solutions manual must be ordered separately (Stock #91116). Algebra 2 not only covers all the topics of a second year Algebra, but also includes a considerable amount of geometry, including writing proof outlines. When your child completes this course, he will have studied the equivalent of one semester of informal geometry as well.
         

    Algebra 2 is made up of five instructional components:

  • Introduction of the New Increment
  • Examples with Complete Solutions
  • Practice of the Increment
  • Daily Problem Sets
  • Cumulative Tests



    Algebra 2 not only treats topics that are traditionally covered in second-year algebra, but also covers a considerable amount of geometry. Time is spent developing geometric concepts and writing proof outlines. Students completing Algebra 2 will have studied the equivalent of one semester of informal geometry. Applications to other subjects such as physics and chemistry, as well as real-world problems, are covered, including gas laws, force vectors, chemical mixtures, and percent markups. Set theory, probability and statistics, and other topics are also included.

    Algebra 2 includes such topics as:

  • graphical solution of simultaneous equations
  • scientific notation
  • radicals
  • roots of quadratic equations including complex roots
  • properties of real numbers
  • factoring
  • inequalities and systems of inequalities
  • logarithms and antilogarithms
  • conic sections
  • exponential equations
  • basic trigonometric functions
  • algebra of polynomials
  • vectors in polar and rectangular form
  • algebraic word problems

    The Home Study Kit includes all materials necessary for one student and one teacher for a full year of study. Advanced Math Kit includes a textbook, test forms and an answer booklet. Advanced Mathematics interweaves topics from algebra, geometry, trigonometry, discrete mathematics, and mathematical analysis to form a fully integrated text. A rigorous treatment of Euclidean geometry is also presented. Conceptually oriented problems that prepare students for college entrance exams (such as ACT and SAT) are included in the problem sets. Solution manual is ordered separately (Stock # 57311). Grades 9-12.
         
    Advanced Mathematics is made up of five instructional components:

  • Introduction of the New Increment
  • Examples with Complete Solutions
  • Practice of the Increment
  • Daily Problem Sets
  • and Cumulative Tests.

    In Advanced Mathematics, topics from algebra, geometry, trigonometry, discrete mathematics, and mathematical analysis are interwoven to form a fully integrated text. A rigorous treatment of Euclidean geometry is also presented. Word problems are developed throughout the problem sets and become progressively more elaborate. With this practice, students will be able to solve challenging problems such as rate problems and work problems involving abstract quantities. The graphing calculator is used to graph functions and perform data analysis. Conceptually oriented problems that prepare students for college entrance exams (such as the ACT and SAT) are included in the problem sets.

    Advanced Mathematics includes such topics as:

  • permutations and combinations
  • trigonometric identities
  • inverse trigonometric functions
  • conic sections
  • graphs of sinusoids
  • rectangular and polar representation of complex numbers
  • De Moivre's theorem
  • matrices and determinants
  • the binomial theorem
  • the rational roots theorem

    Saxon Physics First Edition 2001 is taught at an introductory level and does not require that the teacher have a background in physics. Anyone who has taught second-year algebra, especially Saxon's Algebra 2, can teach this book successfully. Saxon Physics was written with both average and gifted students in mind.

    The entire program is based on introducing a topic to a student and then allowing them to build upon that concept as they learn new ones. Topics are never dropped but are instead increased in complexity and practiced every day, providing the time required for concepts to become totally familiar.

    The subject is taught at an introductory level, allowing the average high school student to grasp the concepts of Newton's laws, statics, dynamics, thermodynamics, optics, DC circuits, waves, electromagnetics, and special relativity. The topics are covered to a depth appropriate for college students majoring in non-engineering disciplines. Consequently, gifted students who use this book will have great success with the Advanced Placement Physics examination, and average students who are willing to do the homework will also be able to pass the examination. Topics from the Advanced Placement Level B Exam can be covered before the exam is given in early May.

     Calculus

    Understanding the abstractions of calculus requires far more than limited exposure. Through the 148 sequential lessons in this comprehensive text, future mathematicians, scientists, and engineers will incrementally build and reinforce their knowledge through continual practice and review. Following a condensed summary of key algebra, trigonometry, and analytic geometry topics, students explore limits, functions, and the differentiation and integration of variables. Includes test and answer key booklets. 758 pages, hardcover.
         

    Calculus is made up of four instructional components:
  • Introduction of the New Increment
  • Examples with Complete Solutions
  • Daily Problem Sets
  • and Cumulative Tests.

  • Calculus treats all the topics normally covered in an Advanced Placement AB-level calculus program, as well as many from a BC-level program. The text begins with a review of the mathematical concepts and skills required for calculus. In the early problem sets, students practice setting up word problems they will later encounter as calculus problems. The problem sets contain multiple-choice and conceptually-oriented problems similar to those found on the Advanced Placement examination. Whenever possible, an intuitive introduction precedes a rigorous examination of a concept. Proofs are provided for all important theorems. For example, three proofs, one intuitive and two rigorous, are given for the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus.

  • Numerous applications to physics, chemistry, engineering, and business are also treated in both the lessons and the problem sets. Use of this text has allowed students to take the Advanced Placement examination and score well.
