Product Description:

Homeschool Bundle includes Digital Access Card to the Pearson Realize platform, two student editions (Volume 1 and 2), additional practice, an assessment sourcebook and a Teacher Resource Masters Package.

If Saxon isn't your cup of tea, but you need a good secular math program Prentice Hall can fill that void. This series is written to meet standards and prepare students for standardized testing. The books are colorful and easy to use while the teacher resources give you everything you need to teach the course and a lot of extras.

Each course bundle includes a Student Text, All-in-One Student Workbook, and Teacher Center CD-ROM (PLEASE NOTE SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS BELOW). The Student Text not only gives you comprehensive colorful lessons, but a plethora of resource information. The front of the book includes web codes (for use at the publishers website) for easy access to vocabulary quizzes, chapter tests, chapter projects, and how to access them; how to use the book; diagnostic test; and a problem-solving handbook that teaches students how to work through problems understand, plan, carryout, and check. Resources are continued in the back of the book with chapter projects, extra practice, skills handbook with exercises, reference tables for measurement, math symbols, formulas & properties, an English/Spanish glossary, select answers to exercises (mostly odd problems), and "Instant Check System" answers. Each chapter in the student text begins with a short review of previous concepts and an introduction as to what will be covered in the present chapter. Chapters are broken down into lessons which include a list of skills needed for fulfilling the chapter content, concept presentation with examples, highlighted vocabulary, Quick Check practice, Check Your Understanding, homework exercises, notes for where you can go for help, guided problem solving, web codes for homework video tutors (short lessons on key concepts), test prep & mixed review, and activity labs. Sometimes there will be test prep tips, vocabulary builders, or "Math at Work" which highlights math in careers. At the end of each chapter you might find test-taking strategies, chapter review, chapter test, and a test prep which will be either reading comprehension with math reading and word problems or a cumulative review. The Teacher Center CD-ROM includes an extreme amount of information and resources and includes 4 discs for installation and program elements along with guides for installation and use. The resource disc includes test forms, answer keys, answer grids, progress charts, practice tests for ITBS, NAEP, and SAT10, project pages, note taking pages, activity pages in Spanish, transparencies, and the list goes on. One very helpful component in the teacher materials is a readiness test that lets you know if your student is prepared for algebra. The Teacher Center CD-ROM is awesome and easy to use, but I do have one complaint. The PDF files for all of the printable pages and answer keys, etc. dont have the

unhappy with Saxon and Teaching Textbooks. Trying a spiral approach with online resources, since these other programs seemed to confuse and frustrate him.

I think the Prentice Hall Mathematics program is a superior program. Having used many Math programs over twenty-plus years of homeschooling and teaching, this series breaks things down step by step, with ample resources to provide sufficient practice. I also love the "Skills You'll Need" section of each lesson which enables quick review or tutoring help prior to each lesson.

I like Prentice Hall materials and I need a pre-high school text

You show this book as a 9th grade book, but looking through the text it says its a 7th grade book. Can you explain?
A shopper on Jan 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We are presenting the series as it was given to us by the publisher. Our product description states:
"This series allows for some flexibility in the course sequence. Students can choose to do
Course 1 and Course 2, and then they have the option of doing Course 3 or Algebra Readiness."
In other words, Algebra Readiness is an alternative 8th grade course. I do not have an explanation for why the text would present itself as a 7th grade book.

I really like the layout of the book and presentation of the topics and my math-phobic daughter seems to be doing fine Beware the teacher support material if you have a fairly current Mac computer- it will not work on anything recent-their technology is old and my fairly new operating system will not support it (must be able to support Power PC) When I contacted the company they basically said too bad and I could buy the solutions manual for $129! So now I am having to solve everything as we go which is highly inconvenient and I can't use any of the nifty teacher support things If you have an older computer you may be fine I think Prentice Hall just doesn't understand their homeschool market and in the future I will go back to finding used public school texts and piecing together the support materials instead of spending a lot and not being able to use it
