D.I.V.E. CD-ROM for Saxon Algebra 2 (2nd Ed./3rd Ed.) Win/Mac
This CD also includes College Algebra CLEP Professor.
Format: CD-ROM Prerequisite: Algebra 1.Compatibility: All Mac OS and Windows XP or higher. Required: Saxon Algebra 2 2nd or 3rd Ed Home Study Kit with Solutions Manual. High School Credit: 1 Algebra 2 credit and 1/2 Geometry credit (remaining 1/2 Geometry Credit is earned in Advanced Math). Includes Free CLEP Professor for College Algebra.
This CD can be used with BOTH the 2nd and 3rd edition of Saxon Algebra 2. The only diffference between these editions is that the 3rd edition has the lesson reference printed in parentheses next to every question in the problem set (homework). For those who want to use the 2nd edition, Dr. Shormann has created a Lesson Reference Chart and posted it on the Syllabi page. The lesson reference indicates which lesson the question was originally taught in so the student can quickly and easily re-learn the missed concept by watching the corresponding lesson on the DIVE CD.

VIDEO LECTURES TEACH STEP-BY-STEP
Dr. Shormann teaches every lesson step by step on a digital blackboard that looks and sounds like a real classroom. The only difference is, you can easily pause, rewind and fast-forward the lecture; learning at your own pace. With degrees in aerospace engineering and science, Dr. Shormann has over 15 years experience teaching all levels of Saxon Math. His unique experience enables him to understand how all the lessons in a book fit together as well as how the curriculum builds all the way through Calculus and Physics.
BITE-SIZED LESSONS INCREASE UNDERSTANDING
Teaching three to five practice problems in each lesson, Dr. Shormann reviews previously learned concepts and connects each "bite-sized" concept to the next. This makes complex concepts easier to grasp while showing students the big picture. During the lecture, students work interactively by taking notes and working the practice problems with him. They are encouraged to pause, rewind, and fast-forward until they fully understand the new concept.
TAUGHT FROM A BIBLICAL FOUNDATION
Connecting Scripture with math and science, he teaches math as the God-given language of science,a tool for understanding God's creation and the purpose and pattern evident in Creation. The history of mathematics is also discussed which shows the tremendous Christian heritage of mathematics and science, and how all mathematics resulted from a study of His creation. It doesn't take long to discuss, but it is important to remind all students that God is the Author and Creator of all knowledge, including mathematics. Consider this: in our world, there exists a huge collection of facts, all subject to interpretation. Who do you want to interpret those facts for your child, a Christian or a non-Christian?
CONTINUAL REVIEW INCREASES LONGTERM RETENTION
After the lecture, students complete homework problems in the Saxon textbook. Each homework set provides continual review of previously learned concepts. Research has shown this method superior for increasing long term retention and recall time but it can be a problem for students who need to re-learn forgotten concepts. With DIVE, the student simply re-watches the corresponding DIVE lecture which is printed in parentheses next to each question. Better than giving them the answer, the student relearns the forgotten concept and immediately applies it to the problem; significantly increasing retention.
The completion of algebra. Covers uniform motion, chemistry-related problems, simultaneous equations with 2 and 3 variables, non-linear equations, geometry, right-triangle trigonometry, conversion from rectangular to polar coordinates, addition of vectors, complex numbers, quadratic formulas. Revised in 2006, this version includes Lesson Reference Numbers for all problem sets and tests, which refer the student back to the lesson the concept was presented in, so they can go back and review when they come to a difficult problem. This edition also features complete solutions for test questions (located in the test packet), improved graphics, and a revised glossary and index. 3rd edition.
Homeschool Kits contain a non-consumable hardcover student text, an answer key to problem sets and tests, and a test booklet. Solution manuals are NOT included unless you purchase a Homeschool Kit with Solutions Manual. For each problem, these manuals take you step-by-step to the solution. A big help if higher level math isn't your strong suit. All books are the most current edition. Please note that Homeschool Kit contents for Geometry and 4th Editions of Algebra 1 and Algebra 2 are different and do include a solution manual.
Students like Saxon because they feel successful in math instead of overwhelmed.
The most popular homeschooling math program hands down! Highly recommended by both Mary Pride and Cathy Duffy, Saxon Math also wins our award for the "Most Requested Text." Saxon math is a "user-friendly" math program - even for Algebra, Trigonometry, Calculus and other usually difficult math topics. Learning is incremental and each new concept is continuously reviewed, so the learning has time to "sink in" instead of being forgotten when the next topic is presented. Higher scores on standardized tests and increased enrollments in upper-level math and science classes have resulted where Saxon has been used in public schools. Students like Saxon because they feel successful in math instead of overwhelmed. Because of the format, children are able to work more independently.
