Life of Fred
Teaching Textbooks is probably our favorite but I just couldn't see spending almost $200.00 each and every year for it. We have no other children to pass the product down to and these days resale you would be looking around $50.00 in our area. Next on the list was Math Essentials and I do like these books - we just finished Geometry. Well, while in the vendor hall I came across some inexpensive, no-frills Pre-Algebra and Algebra books made by Straight Forward. These we will start right away. The book I am most excited about using is "Real World Algebra" by Edward Zaccaro. This book was created for students 4th-9th grades. The material is presented in comic book fashion with easy to understand instructions and examples. The Straight Forward books were purchased for $4.95 and Real World Algebra for $24.95. Can't wait to see how Grace does with these.
