Category Description for BJU Press Consumer Math:

This edition of Consumer Math is as practical as ever, covering essential topics for high school students. Basic math skills such as rates, ratios, proportions, percents, operations with integers, algebra, and integer exponents; as well as customary and international measurement systems, conversions between the two, linear measure, area, and volume are all covered prior to continuing on with the study of math in specific consumer areas. These include: figuring and calculating income; short and long term budgets; personal banking - different accounts and interest rates; borrowing money; transportation (the world of new cars, used cars, insurance, gas, oil, tires, and such); food; clothing; housing - including mortgages, renting, owning, and home maintenance/improvements; life and health insurance policies; income taxes - becoming familiar with the tax forms; and the financial aspects of taking vacations. With a very clear and easy-to-follow layout, and an emphasis on wise stewardship based upon biblical principles, this is a thorough presentation of practical, daily-life consumer math.

Category Description for BJU Press Curriculum:

We are pleased to be able to distribute BJU Press curriculum to our customers. Most homeschoolers are already familiar with their materials. For those who are not, BJU is a Christian university located in South Carolina that produces and markets curriculum materials for Christian schools as well as home schools. Probably the most homeschool-friendly full-curriculum supplier, they have not only accommodated homeschoolers, but have continually worked to make their materials better suited to the homeschooling family. Many of their courses now contain manuals written specifically for the home school setting, and visuals and supplemental materials have been "pared down" from the bulkier visuals still used in classrooms. While other curriculum suppliers initially frowned on distributing teacher materials to homeschoolers, and provided only expensive classroom versions, Bob Jones quickly embraced homeschoolers, readily allowing them access to teacher's editions and, eventually, producing less expensive spiral-bound or paperbound versions to save money for homeschooling families. Their materials are all top quality. They are professionally prepared, educationally sound, and Biblically-based. Used in Christian school classrooms across the country for years and constantly improved, they are courses you can trust in your homeschool as well. We have long been fans of Bob Jones curriculum materials, having used courses in almost every subject area for one child or another through the years. In our particular situation (seven children, Mom and Dad sharing in teaching as well as in running Rainbow Resource Center), a well-constructed, teacher-ready course can be a God-send. Although we have used a variety of methods and curriculums in our homeschool through the years (and continue to do so), we strongly feel that the Bob Jones materials we have used have helped to produce excellent, college-ready students. Unless you have a particularly strong aversion to textbooks of any kind, at any level, we highly recommend these materials to you.

Curriculum can be found by subject area in our catalog; see index for page numbers. A free scope and sequence is available below, with specific information by grade level.




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.

Challenging
This course is thorough and well-explained. I appreciate the Biblical application and the built in daily reviews. My previous experiences with consumer math courses is that they were designed for non-college bound students - more of a practical math. Not so with this course, so it is very challenging for my non-traditional learner.

Liking everything about this curriculum
I would def. recommend this product. After completing ALG2, we were faced with the options of Business Math, Consumer Math or Pre-Calc for our humanities-oriented, rising 11th grader. We are all SO GLAD we went with consumer math. Obviously practical and the text is quite comprehensive. Our son will still have the option in gr12 to take pre-calc, if he so chooses. In looking over the content, you'll wish you had taken consumer math in high school. We also looked at Abeka's Consumer Math and also their Business Math, and also considered (Pearson's?) Business Math (approx $250 for texts!) but ultimately decided on this one from BJUP. This is our first experience using anything from BJUP. We love the paperback/softbound textbook format, the stewardship principles that are woven throughout and the cost. Highly recommend! You won't be disappointed.
