Expansion of Civilization covers both Western and Eastern Civilization. It is an in-depth study of the rise and fall of the Roman Empire. Students will learn how a great empire rises, and how it falls. Studying the art, music, architecture, and literature will greatly contribute to their study and help them to realize exactly what took place.
Created for the independent, homeschooling student, Teaching Textbooks has helped thousands of high schoolers gain a firm foundation in upper-level math without constant parental or teacher involvement.
Extraordinarily clear illustrations, examples, and graphs have a non-threatening, hand-drawn look, and engaging real life questions make learning pre-algebra practical and applicable. Textbook examples are clear while the audiovisual support includes lecture, practice and solution CDs for every chapter, homework, and test problem. The review-method structure helps students build problem solving skills as they practice core concepts and rote techniques.
Teaching Textbooks’ new Pre-Algebra Version 2.0 edition now includes automated grading! Students watch the lesson on the computer, work a problem in the consumable workbook, and type their answer into the computer; the computer will then grade the problem. If students choose to view the solution, they can see a step-by-step audiovisual solution.
TruthQuest History puts God back at the center of the past.
Centered on “living books,” this creative approach to history integrates elements of both Charlotte Mason and Classical methods.
Short, very informal introductions are written directly to the student and open up each topic with a distinctly Christian perspective. Suggestions for activities or writing exercises are often included as well. The booklists follow, with selected annotations on what pages or sections to read and appropriate grade levels for each entry. Incredibly flexible in nature, families can proceed at the pace that’s best for their students as they select “spines,” biographies, in-print books, and out-of-print classics from the extensive lists.
Proceeding chronologically, entries include lists for Greek life, the Geography of Greece, Greek beliefs, Pythagoras, the Persian Wars, the Delian League, Lysander, Exnophon, Greece’s Silver Age, Alexander the Great, and other relevant unit-study topics.

Each chapter features a conversational lesson and features multiple illustrations before moving on to practice exercises and a problem set-both of which include questions based on problems found in the CLEP and SAT II math tests. Function basics are covered before moving on to polynomial, rational, exponential and logarithmic, radical, power and trigonometric functions; vectors, polar coordinates, systems, matrices, determinants, analytic geometry, sequences, probability, statistics and calculus.
Bible Study Guide for All Ages is an in-depth bible study in 416 lessons. The Student Pages guide you through each lesson and come in four levels covering ages 3 through 6th grade. The Beginner level (for ages 3 – Kindergarten) and Primary level (for 1st – 2nd grade) require a parent’s guidance throughout the lesson. The Intermediate level (3rd – 4th grade) and Advanced level (5th-6th grade) may either be guided by the parent or completed by the student on their own. You can have all of your children study through the same Bible text at the same time. Recommendations on how to do it may be found here.
Optional materials that are referenced in the Student Pages teach chronology, the contents of the Bible Books, maps and more.
Graphing, simultaneous equations, exponents, polynomials, unit multipliers, and more
