By Cthulhu #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on September 10, 2009
Dive into Algebra 1/2 closely follows Saxon's Algebra 1/2 THIRD Edition - and there is a separate CD for the Second Edition. This CD should NOT be used as a stand-alone product. It should ONLY be used WITH Saxon's Algebra 1/2 or the students will lack the practice drills and the tests that come with the printed kit and are not likely to improve significantly.

Having taught my kids Saxon's Math since Math 3/2, I decided to order our Algebra 1/2 with the CD with the hope of saving some time - I tend to go 'long' when I teach. I wasn't disappointed. Allowing Prof. David E. Shormann to do the teaching does save time and his insistence that the students copy everything that he writes on the blackboard - blueboard, really - keeps them focused on the lesson. The teaching of the lesson taking only 20 minutes makes the kids happy and leaves them with more energy left to tackle the practice questions and the 30-questions problem set (known as 'mixed practice' in the pre-algebra Saxon math books) that comes with each of the lessons.

Contrary to the claim made on the CD's cover, these lessons are NOT interactive. They can't be because they are recorded on a CD and the teacher can't take questions and answer them and the students don't interact with the computer either, they only listen to the lesson, take notes and do some practice exercises on paper. I was also surprised to see this product being marketed as Algebra taught from a 'Christian' point of view. There is very little that's specifically Christian about Shormann's teaching other than him stating in the introduction that he is a Christian. He is only following the Saxon math book, paragraph by paragraph and he is doing a good job expressing it in a way that is more dynamic that simply reading the text.
