Publisher Description:

Engage your students in the learning process by providing learning opportunities for both guided and independent practice with Math 1 Worktext, 4th ed. Skills for writing equations, reading graphs, and problem solving are introduced using theme characters Digit the Clown and Cecilia, his pet seal, to help young students foster a love for math. Two new chapters have been added to the worktext—a chapter on plane figures and one on charts and graphs. Within the worktext, students are provided with ample opportunities to practice new concepts as well as space to show their solutions by drawing pictures or using the pictures that have been provided. The worktext includes colorful theme counters, puppets, a Digit clock, and work mats.

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.

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.

When is this expected to be available?

BEST ANSWER: We do not expect it to become available. For some reason, BJU pulled the 4th edition from homeschool sales and we have not been notified of any change in the near future.
