Elementary levels of Math-U-See:
Primer: In the Primer level your child will learn not only how to write numerals but also addition and subtraction, basic counting, skip counting, geometric shapes, telling time, and they will be introduced to the manipulative block system. It’s a gentle introduction to “doing math.”
Alpha: Alpha focuses on teaching the concepts of single digit addition and subtraction. We use systematic teaching strategies to help students commit the addition and subtraction facts to memory.
Beta: Beta builds on the foundation in Alpha by applying students’ mastery of single-digit addition and subtraction to multiple-digit addition and subtraction. One of the stepping stones between these two levels is the concept of place value, which is an important milestone for truly grasping any multiple-digit operation.
Gamma: Once students have mastered the concepts of addition and subtraction (covered in Alpha and Beta), they are ready for multiplication. Gamma teaches single-digit facts and multiple-digit multiplication skills.
Delta: Division is presented as the inverse of multiplication. Single-digit division facts are learned and the concepts of division and place value are applied when solving long division problems.
Epsilon: Now that students have learned basic operations with whole numbers,Epsilon covers these same operations with fractions. Fractions are presented in an intuitive way with visual explanations of equivalent fractions, common denominators, and fractions and numbers larger than 1. Fractions and operations are illustrated using our proprietary Fraction Overlay manipulatives.
Zeta: Zeta extends the student’s concept of place value to the right of the decimal point. Students learn to complete core operations with decimals. The connection between fractions and decimals is presented.
The Mystery of History is a four-volume world history series, which will take you around the globe through the study of chronological events. (It is recommended but not necessary to complete the volumes in the order they are written.)
Christian The Mystery of History is written from a Christian worldview and uniquely weaves world cultures and stories of the past into the history of Christianity. But more than that, lessons in The Mystery of History are like fragments of a mosaic that, when put together, reveal a much bigger picture and tell a much larger story—one that points toward God’s plan for mankind.
roviding students with an overview of American history from Columbus to the present day, Exploring America from Notgrass Company is a full-year high school course that presents US history from a Christian perspective. This course is comprised of two primary texts and a volume of primary documents (“American Voices”). Each textbook unit is filled with conservational chapters and many full-color photographs of archival images, artifacts, and locations. In addition to reading the narrative about events, issues, and people, students will read original documents, speeches, poems, and stories in American Voices. They will also read classic literature (in books obtained independently) that help bring to life the time period under review. Units begin with a summary and list of lessons, memory work, books used, and a project. Each lesson ends with readings from the book American Voices, additional literature assignments, and instructions for questions and quizzes (the optional review questions, quizzes and tests themselves are in the sold-separately Exploring America Student Review Pack).
This updated 2014 edition features an expanded last chapter to take readers through the present, as well as a new layout that features full-color photographs, illustrations, and a hardcover binding. The literature used has also been altered.
One hundred and fifty lessons are divided into thirty units of five lessons each; students should expect to spend 50-60 minutes on each subject each day (total of 2.5-3 hours per day). This course, when all assignments are completed, provides one credit of American history, one credit of English, and one credit of Bible.
TeenCoder: Windows Programming is the first semester course in the TeenCoder C# series, and introduces 9th-12th grade students to the C# programming language, which is commonly used in business, academic, and industrial settings. Students will learn to create graphical Windows applications (and a chess game!) using object-oriented design concepts.
Each chapter explains a programming concept in detail with corresponding sample code. Activities at the end of each chapter prompt the student to write their own program based on the material learned in the chapter; students are encouraged to be creative and personalize their programming projects as they learn to create applications.
One Semester. Grades 9-12. 252 pages, softcover. CD included. 3rd Edition.
