CHALLENGING!
My teen has found A Fresh Approach Algebra & Geometry to be better than other math curriculums we have tried. One was so bad (I forget the name of it) that we got a refund 6 MONTHS into it because we realized the ANSWER KEY was WRONG for several problems!! THAT was a HUGE disappointment to have spent 6 months only to have to start over again with a brand new curriculum because we didn't know which problems were right & which were wrong... and the publisher wasn't going to update that edition for several years (YES! With an INCORRECT answer key!) & someone else told us the next book in their series also had many errors in it, so we ditched it entirely... too bad they didn't tell us that before we spent 6 MONTHS on the curriculum.

Anyway, I then spent even more hours & hours researching again to find a new math curriculum that was not dumbed down AND had a correct answer key. I came upon this curriculum & the rest was history after I contacted the curriculum writer & she assured me there was not a large number of errors in the book (she said there may have been one... maybe two, but that if we brought any errors to her attention we would get PAID to do so...at that point I was very confident she KNEW her stuff & risked buying the curriculum... best math decision!).

A Fresh Approach can be VERY challenging, but WOW!, my daughter knows her stuff now. She may not LIKE math any more than she did, but it MAKES SENSE with THIS curriculum after treading water with two other curriculums she did NOT want to go back to.

This is DEFINITELY NOT for math challenged kids..it is high level math without a doubt, but how accomplished a student feels when they succeed at it!

We are back to order Algebra II. This is the FIRST math curriculum my daughter ASKED for when given the choice, even being harder than any of the others.

For kicks, she & I looked at the scope & sequence for one of the old math curriculums she had used. Everything in that math curriculum for Algebra II she had covered in Algebra I & Geometry with A Fresh Approach. I found that exciting as a parent to know how she is excelling in a subject that we used to cry in frustration about & she pretty much SELF teaches it now. She is far from being a dumb kid; the other curriculums just did NOT make sense & THIS one makes sense! My husband checks over her work & helps if she has a question (he's the math whiz in the family).

Words can't describe how awesome it is to have her do so well in such a high level math AND she GETS IT!!

I'm not sure if I will use this for my other kids, but I will at least start them out on it & see if they do just as well. It is not for the faint at heart when it comes to math. That said, there are NO MORE TEARS from her or me :).

LOVE this curriculum!

I hope Algebra II goes as well. I'll review that after we go through it.

My daughter has done well in this course although the blank space on the pages translates into a daunting number of pages to cover per lesson It is very frustrating that there is no index and the table of contents is not detailed enough to find a particular topic: my daughter wastes too much time leafing through pages to find references Overall it's more workable than Jacobs more straightforward than Life of Fred but still not the answer to my prayers for higher level math

It looks like a friendly, but through geometry text. This kiddo is a few years ahead and being able to write directly in the text will be less daunting. We really liked the sample chapter from the website.

We chose A Fresh Approach Algebra I & the supplies to go along with it after MANY tears & trials with other math curriculums.
