Category Description for BJU Press Math Grade 1 (3rd Ed.):

Digit the Clown and Cecilia the Seal are your child's hosts in this 3rd edition. Changes in this edition are an earlier introduction of number concepts to 20, place value up to 3 digit numbers, addition up to 3 digit numbers, learning facts through strategies, Venn diagrams, elapsed time, more concepts with solid figures, and hands-on activities with thermometer manipulatives. Chapters include chapter and cumulative reviews. Manipulatives are used. Unifix cubes are also recommended for this program, but any counters will work. The Reviews workbook has two pages per lesson. The first page includes the lesson concepts and the second page is reviews previous concepts. The Chapter Review pages correspond with the worktext chapter review Mathematics pages. The teacher edition includes a Toolkit CD-ROM, containing reproducible enrichment pages (replacing some of the older components), and the Teachers Visual Packet. Adobe Acrobat Reader is required to access this program. ~ Donna

Category Description for BJU Press Math - Elementary:

Teaching Charts contain visuals and charts important to the presentation of math concepts. Student Materials Packets contain inexpensive manipulatives to be used in the lessons. Optional activity books at some levels provide extra practice and review. The "Spread Your Wings" books are for reteaching and extra practice needed on concepts taught in the course. Useful if your student "just doesn't get it" and needs a little more exposure. "Spring Into Action" activity books provide additional practice or review beyond the problems presented in the text. "Stretch Your Mind" books require going a little beyond the textual presentation, helping students to become resourceful and explore alternate strategies to solving problems. Cumulative review pages review skills from previous lessons. Concept Review pages cover a specific concept from an earlier chapter. Fact review pages provide drill practice.

Required materials are listed first at each grade level. Optional support materials are identified with an asterisk (*) preceding the

Category Description for BJU Press Math:

A solid thorough curriculum at all levels. Concepts are taught at the concrete level, with heavy use of manipulatives in the early grades. Elementary program texts are particularly well done - colorful, good variety of skills, and on-grade-level. For those that want to use a more traditional, yet appealing, worktext series at the elementary level, this is perhaps the best.

Teacher editions have complete lesson plans and answers to text problems. If you are using Bob Jones as your basal math program, you will want to invest in them, as they provide the one-on-one instruction, manipulative instruction, and offer many suggestions for presenting and enriching the concepts covered in each lesson. If you are not using Bob Jones as the core of your math program, consider using the student workbooks as such. We have long used the Miquon Math series and find it very effective to use the Bob Jones workbooks alongside (plus some drill products for mastery of basic math facts). If you are planning to use a different program at upper levels, we have found the transition seamless. Bob Jones supplies student worktexts though the 4th grade. This is particularly welcome for those of us with students who are not ready for a hardbound, copy-and-work system this early. Starting in grade 5, texts are hardbound.

Many homeschoolers have opted to use Saxon Math at the upper levels, but, like any program, it doesn't satisfy everyone. If you are looking for an alternative, I suggest the Bob Jones texts. One of the strengths of the Bob Jones program is the teaching of concepts, rather than the rote how-to-solve-it approach. Also, Christian principles and character traits are assumed and integrated throughout the program. Each level is themed, providing a motivation learning context. Lessons are "spiraled", meaning topics are reviewed throughout each level, delving a little deeper each time. This is not the same as the "incremental" approach used by Saxon Math (see description). Lesson exercises consist mainly of practice for that lesson, not a review of previous lessons or chapters. However, topics are not covered, then left forever; they reappear in more complexity throughout the course, allowing the student continuing practice. The approach you prefer depends on your child. Some children may need more concentration on the topic at hand, and Bob Jones Math will appeal to this group. Like Saxon, the people at Bob Jones are ever-ready to assist you with any difficulties you may have, including access to textbook authors.

Relatively new is the revised Geometry book for grade 10. For those desiring to approach geometry as a separate course, this revised text will supply a solid option to the Jacobs text. For those students who are not interested in pursuing math beyond algebra or geometry, Bob Jones supplies a Consumer Math course that presents math required for practical living. While there is no separate calculus course, the Advanced Math text does introduce the college-bound student to calculus.

I love BJU math for younger grades. This is very good and I am ordering this early for my next little one to use before they change or get updated.

I love BJU Math for the early elementary years. I especially like this 3rd edition, as opposed to the 4th edition. It seems more straightforward.

It is colorful, easy enough, but thorough.

To date, four of my children have used BJU math in the younger years. We have seen excellent results as they head on to higher math. I purchased this for my child in Kindergarten who is excelling in math and is ready to move on to first grade.

Great workbook, terrible binding
Love the BJU Math 2 curriculum. The last two worktext books I purchased both fell apart at the binding at the outset of the school year, however, which was a mess.

Great Math Text
I love this workbook because my children love it. Its colorfulness is a big attraction, but it is also very clearly and simply laid out and quite comprehensive. I use it without a teacher's manual, since it's pretty self explanatory at the first grade level.
