    I have always been strong in math and have looked forward to teaching math, especially the higher levels, to my kids. This is such a great curriculum that continues to point the student (and parent ;) ) to God every step of the way. It is full of REAL LIFE examples so students actually get WHY they are being asked to learn Algebra 2, which is something that was severely lacking from my own educational upbringing. There are 3 books needed - This is the set which contains all 3. The Teachers Guide has the worksheets for each lesson and the tests, the Student Text which is full of wonderful examples and explanations that make learning natural, and the Solutions Manual which gives you the answers to the worksheets and tests. As with all Master Books curriculum, it truly is open and go. There is an Academy Course which is super helpful as well! I would highly recommend for any High School student in need of Algebra 2!

    I received an electronic copy for my review - thoughts are my own!

    Shows students why they are learning concepts and how algebra's very existence points us to God.

    This course is written to the student with the intention of the student using it independently.

    Student Book: Each chapter gives many examples on how those concepts are used in real life. Which answers the question: Am I ever going to use Algebra?

    I especially like the notes (highlighted in green) within each concept. They point out helpful reminders or specific things to look for.

    The Keeping Perspective section of each lesson focuses on how that concept points to God and all that He created.

    There are many beautiful, vibrant pictures. Lots of graph examples which really help the student to see the problem worked out.

    There is an extremely helpful reference section in the back of the book with drawings, units of measure and other helpful reference items.

    The Teacher's Guide: Suggested schedule broken down into 36 weeks.

    Clear directions for each set of problems. I really like the extra hints/notes/reminders.

    Includes Challenge Problems which are designed to stretch a student's thinking and give them glimpses into how Algebra applies to real life.

    Instructions are given for when it is appropriate to use a graphing calculator which a student should become familiar with before they are taking standardized tests at that level.

    Plenty of problems to help a student to practice each concept, but not so many that it is overwhelming.

    The Solutions Manual: Includes many extremely helpful grading note suggestions. Points out that there may be more than one legitimate way to solve a problem. As long as they have the right answer, that is okay. Tips on grading and calculator usage are included.

    Step by step solutions are provided.

    Notes are added that tell you what the student was instructed to do in that lesson.

    I also recommend the ecourse for this curriculum. It is great for a visual learner to walk them through the steps.

    I had pretty strong education in math, and I still learned something new from this set. This Algebra 2 set has real application teaching combined with biblical worldview. I like that it is challenging enough, but also provides all the needed support the student and parent may need to go through the course.

    The author uses some problems from the Franklin Elementary Algebra which uses real life problems, not abstract only.

    Teacher's Guide includes the problems that are similar to the ones used in the main textbook, so the student can practice the skills but on the known problems. I really liked also that the set includes Solution Manual with all the answers and clear explanation/directions how to get there. It can be very helpful for busy parents and those who need to brush up their math skills (like me lol).

    In addition, the author constantly refers to God, and how the math reflects God's faithfulness to us which strengthens our trust in Him and His promises.

    This is nothing close to what I had to use when studying Algebra 2. I am excited for my kids to get a different perspective on Algebra 2 and grow closer to God through it as well. Beautiful work Katherine Hannon!

    Biblical Worldview Math

    Principles of Algebra 2 lives up to its name as applied algebra from a biblical worldview. The text is engaging, with full color pictures, diagrams, and highlighted areas to break up text and help the reader understand the concepts and easily find key information. Throughout, there are relevant, real world application problems. And the biblical worldview does not disappoint. Instead of just math with Bible verses here and there, this text really helps us see God in math, and how it is a tool He gave us to better understand creation. I am really looking forward to using this Algebra 2 text in our homeschool!



    Principles of Algebra 2 Teachers Guide is a necessary, but helpful supplement to the student text. Inside, you will find it to be very organized and easy to use. There is a daily schedule for what to read from the student text, as well as which worksheets to complete in the Teachers Guide. The work amount appears on-par with what I have seen from MB in the past: just enough to practice the concept, not enough to overwhelm. We have always liked MB style for that reason. My only drawback is that there is not enough room on the worksheets to complete the problems, so all the written work will need to be done a separate piece of paper. However, this is how most math books are, so not necessarily a drawback, just something to be aware of. Overall, I highly recommend this entire Algebra 2 curriculum.



    Principles of Algebra 2 Solutions Manual is a very helpful tool to have, especially if the parent is not confident in teaching Algebra. Each problem is worked out step by step, with the answer highlighted in gray to easily check answers. There are also grading guidelines to assist in grading fairly at this level of math, where the correct answer could be found in different ways. Together with the Algebra 2 Student Text and Teachers Guide, this is a comprehensive and well designed curriculum.

    This is a delightfully straightforward math Algebra 2 curriculum. The course book comes with full color images, tables, or examples that bring the material to life. This course is written where each concept is tied back to God and the Bible, showing that math is much more than just rules, but was wonderfully designed, allowing students to see the beauty amongst the complexity. The course book would be considered the "textbook" part of the course and offers explanation and example problems for each concept covered. I especially enjoyed the real world examples given for certain topics that answers the age old question of "when will I ever use this in real life?"

    The Solution Manual is a wonderful supplement to the Teacher Guide. This black and white text includes solutions for all worksheets, quizzes, and tests. Solutions include the answer, step-by-step instructions when indicated, and explanation of how/why equations are set up when indicated. The combination of the visual equations and the explanation make it easy for both student and teacher/parent to check the work and understand errors. The text is broken down with worksheets in order of how they are completed first, then a section with quizzes, and lastly a section of all the tests. This mimics how the Teacher Guide is set up, which makes finding the correct problem set easy.

    The Teacher Guide contains all the practical information you need in order to actually teach Principles of Algebra 2. The book starts with an overview of the course with some practical information including a list of supplies that might be needed (calculator, notebook paper, optional video course in Masterbooks Academy, etc.) and study tips for the student. There is a suggested daily schedule that clearly breaks down the lesson progression. This course is designed to be taught 5 days a week for 36 weeks (9 weeks for each quarter). This includes days for quizzes at the end of each chapter, tests at the end of each quarter, and a final exam. I especially love that it builds in 2 study days between the quarter 4 test and the final exam. Obviously, this course can be flexible to fit the needs of any family, but a clear schedule is something I always appreciate as a guide. All of the daily lesson worksheets, quizzes, and tests are contained in this book, so it is a necessary book for the course. I absolutely love how it's laid out.

    I was given these books for free in return for my honest review. All opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
