COURSE OVERVIEW
Math U See Algebra 2: Factoring polynomials, quadratic formula, graphing conic sections and other algebra 2 topics.
COURSE NOTES
MATHEMATICS: General math, transition math/prealgebra, algebra, geometry, and various advanced math programs are available to the homeschooler. Math is required of all students each year. High school students should aim for four or more hours of math each week (36 – 45 hours per quarter).
Recommended junior high and high school math sequence is MathUSee Zeta, then Math U See PreAlgebra (or Saxon Algebra 1/2 or UCSMP Transition Math), then Jacobs Elementary Algebra, then Jacobs Geometry. Higher level math is recommended for those students with a gift or a tutor (!) for it, or consider a community college class, even. Most effective over the years have been Math U See Algebra 2 and PreCalculus, Paul Foerster’s Algebra & Trigonometry, Teaching Textbook series or Scott Foresman’s UCSMP Math series. See your advisor’s notes for recommendations for your student.
To place a student in a math text correctly, begin the year by assigning one unit test or review per day. When the student begins missing two or more problems because he does not understand the steps or concepts, back up to the beginning lesson for that test unit and begin the student there in the text. If a text is wrapped around to the following school year, this testing sequence should be repeated from the beginning of the text to find the student’s most comfortable starting point for the new year, encouraging deep review.
Math should be taught 4 to 5 days per week, with 1520 minutes of supervised instruction and 30 to 50 minutes of independent practice. Be sure to work through every error with your student until you are satisfied that he can reach the correct answer independently. Homeschoolers should earn no less than a B+ percentage grade BEFORE corrections before moving forward in the lessons.
Credit Information for Students in Grades 9  12: Credits awarded according to hours reported; 37.5 hours = 2.5cr; 75 hours = 5.0cr; max. 2.5cr per quarter; max. 2.5cr per work sample.
Scheduling Suggestions: 5x/wk for 50 to 75 minutes
