Product Description:

Geometry text "Geometry: A Guided Inquiry" by Chakerian, Crabill, and Stein is digital and included with the digital download. Download information will be emailed to the email used for purchase from the publisher.

Publisher Description:

The recently revised course now contains a complete digital copy of the textbook, Geometry: A Guided Inquiry, by G. D. Chakerian, Calvin D. Crabill, and Sherman K. Stein, an introductory video for each chapter, a complete pdf solution guide to all problems in the Central and Project sections of the text, a video solution guide to the Review sections, commentary, extensions, and over 200 dynamic demonstrations, using GeoGebra. GeoGebra is available (free download) from the website GeoGebra.org.

Pair a well-loved high school math series (Foersters) with video instruction and you have a winning combination. Math Without Borders Home Study Companions provide an element of confidence; the conviction that a challenging high school math course is completely manageable. Why? You have a teacher in your corner. One who calmly and clarifyingly teaches math. Initially programs were on thumb drives, but all have transitioned over to digital downloads. The videos provide electronic whiteboard presentations to accompany the textbook lessons plus worked solutions to selected assigned problems.

The Paul Foerster math courses are considered an excellent choice for college prep math, but were not as readily available. Sometimes, it was even hard to get an answer key. David Chandler and Math Without Borders changes all that. These excellent courses (the geometry uses "Geometry: A Guided Inquiry") provide a quality, college-prep, high school scope and sequence and they are do-able in a homeschool setting even if mom is a mathophobe.

The idea is to read the day's lesson, then watch the video. Use half of the lesson problems as a daily assignment; use the remainder if additional practice is needed. The Math Without Borders videos include explanatory videos plus worked problem solutions for either select problems or the even problems. These solutions can be used to get over a roadblock. Many of the courses include a Resources File which provides spreadsheets and material referred to in the lessons.

Each course includes material on how to set up the course, what texts to use and how to use them, as well as links for obtaining suggested free software downloads. Some courses include printable pdf material.

Although a mentoring approach to assessment is encouraged, Mr. Chandler does provide suggestions for material that can be used as self-tests or assessments. ~ Janice

Algebra I text is Algebra I: Expressions, Equations, and Applications by Paul Foerster (Prentice Hall Classics edition). The odd-numbered problems have answers given at the back of the book (use these for homework). Lessons are useful with older editions of the text.

Geometry text is Geometry: A Guided Inquiry by Chakerian, Crabill, and Stein. (several publishers and different printings but all with identical content). Demonstration files from the lessons require a free program Geogebra - (available as download).

Algebra 2 with Trigonometry text is Algebra and Trigonometry: Functions and Applications by Paul Foerster (Prentice Hall Classics edition). Mr. Chandler notes that trigonometry is rarely taught as a separate course anymore but rather paired with either Algebra 2 or Precalculus. Paul Foerster includes it in both courses. Math Without Borders strongly suggests that taking both courses (don't skip the Precalculus course) is recommended because work leading up to calculus is foundational for later math courses and mathematically based professions. Lessons are useful with older editions of the text.

Precalculus text is Precalculus with Trigonometry: Concepts and Applications, 3rd ed. by Paul Foerster (copyright 2012). Lessons are useful with older editions of the text.

Calculus text is Calculus: Concepts and Applications, 2nd ed. by Paul Foerster (copyright 2005). Lessons are useful with older editions of the text.

I chose this because my son has done Algebra 1 and Algebra 2 with MWB. He likes it fine, and wants to continue Prof. Chandler's HSC. He provides an excellent, thorough instruction, I'm glad MWB has worked out so well for my son.

We used HSC for Alg. 1 and want to continue with this series. Prof. Chandler is a genius. It's also nice to hear a calm voice explaining the math.

I have used both the Math Without Borders Algebra 1 and Algebra 2 HS Companions and they provided a rigorous and thorough class with all the help we needed. I am sure the Geometry HS Companion will be the same.

My daughter struggles in math, and this is the only program we've found that makes sense to her.The videos are extremely helpful.
Misty D on Mar 26, 2019
We have been using this program with Alg 1 and have been thoroughly impressed. My daughter has never done well with the other programs we've used. This made a real connection for her and she feels confident in math now. That is most important to me, that she feels confident.

My son and I used the Algebra 1 program and did very well with it, so we decided to continue with Geometry. The program is easy to use and an affordable math option with video instruction.
Jeffrey S on Sep 8, 2018
We used home study companion for Algebra1 program and liked it very much. I like that the book is included on the thumb drive along with the video lessons and that the answers to practice questions are worked out in video form. I think this is a good deal for all of that.

We enjoy the math material from Math Without borders and it is a rigourous math curriculum.

My son loved the teaching video
Tricia H on Aug 18, 2017
I used this with my oldest child, so I am ordering it now for my middle child. It is a rigorous course yet explained well so the child understands the material. Prepares the student well for college level work.

Are you able to print pages from the thumb drive to have a physical page to work the problems? And can you print the Answer sheets?
A shopper on May 13, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Yes, you are able to print pages from this product - but it is no longer a thumbdrive. It has recently changed to a download product.
Is this a thumb drive or just a digital download?
A shopper on May 1, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I recently received a thumb drive as described in the product description. GeoGebra, the geometry app used in demos, may be downloaded as an app (for free) on iPhone or iPad or used directly from their website. According to the instructor's website (mathwithoutborders), all courses are now available for immediate digital download, which is perhaps why this is now showing as available for backorder here at Rainbow Resource Center?
