In the "Getting Ready to Learn" portion of the textbook lesson, "Check your readiness" exercises help students see where they might need to review before the lesson. "Check skills you'll need" list out the skills used in the lesson, and new vocabulary is listed before it's introduced. Sidebar helps tell students where to go for help in the textbook if they need to review, or note when an online tutor video is available.
The lesson itself includes "quick check" problems for students to see if they understand the concept just introduced; "key concepts" boxes that summarize definitions, formulas, & properties, online activities for review and practice; vocabulary sidebars and features that help focus on the language of math; and multiple types of practice activities that feature new material, integrate older material, and provide challenges. A homework video tutor for every lesson is provided online. Designed to especially help students prepare for high-stakes tests like the SAT and ACT, as well as standardized tests, test-taking strategies are included in each chapter. Skills handbook, Spanish/English glossary, instant check answers, and selected answers are included in the student textbook.
The workbook provides complete daily support for the lesson, and includes a daily notetaking guide, guided problem solving exercises, and additional practice for every lesson. For each chapter vocabulary and study skills are emphasized. The Daily Notebooking Guide is designed to be used while working through the text; each section corresponds to a section in the text, with objectives clearly laid out. Perforated, newsprint-like pages, softcover.

Sandra5 Stars Out Of 5A Great Choice for Mastery Based Middle / HS Math!November 6, 2013SandraQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 5We used Saxon for many years and were burned out on the spiral approach, monotony, lack of interest, etc. We wanted a mastery-based program, that would take us through middle school and maybe even high school. We wanted something with chapters that focus on one topic or related topics, but plenty of Mixed Review every day so old skills would not be forgotten. We wanted something with color, and we wanted something that matched most state standards or exceeded them. We found all of this in Prentice Hall Math. The sequence is Course 1, COurse 2, Course 3, or if you find your student struggling with course 2, you can use Pre-Algebra which is EASIER than Course 3. I believe you can also jump into Course 2 in 6th grade if your child is very strong or advanced in math. My son is doing very well with this math and I thought the little Homeschool Pamphlet was well done. The only downside is that the solutions manual is somewhere on the CD Rom and we don't have a computer with a disc drive. So I'll have to go to a friend's or Kinko's to access it.
