I bought books 1-4 so far for my 7th grader. She is doing so well. These books do a great job of teaching prior to the lesson. She doesn't need me as much as I had planned. My memory has been refreshed as well. I am looking forward to seeing just how well she does in Algebra 1.
I purchased this for my 10th grader who isn't strong in math. She loves that the books are self-explanatory and she can work them at her own pace. Whenever she comes across any difficulty, we sit and work it out together. I already see her confidence in math growing.
i bought this set for my child who will be taking integrated algebra in the fall. unfortunately, we found this set to be too easy and elementary for my child. she's covered almost all of it in school this past year. These books weren't the right level for my child. However, Key To Algebra books are concise, easy to understand and follow. It is not overwhelming as Saxon books can be. There's plenty of reviews and problems to do to reinforce the concept learned in each "chapter"
I purchased this for my oldest son, who is now about to graduate. He did very well with it although book 4 was a little challenging. It is well written and easy to understand. I will be using it next year with my other son. I believe he will do very well with it. The only problem I have is that some times in the teachers guide, the answer is provided with no explaination as to how the answer is achieved. Since there were only a few like that we just skipped them. Other than that, it is great! I have recommended it to several of my homeschooling friends, and will continue to do so for years to come.
I never had Algebra in school and never thought I could teach it! I was given your curriculum from an old homeschooler. The first day I looked at it I reviewed 1 and 1/2 books just to see if I could understand it, and I did! It gave me a new confidence teaching a subject I knew little about. Wow! Thank you key curriculum Press.
