In this version, EVERY "city" has the answers to it, which makes it a little harder for me to assign work from it and know for sure that it is being done based on knowledge, and not sneaky sneaky lookaheads. I'd rather have a separate answer book again. On the flip side, at least in chapter 3 (which is as far as we are), pretty much all questions seem to be worked out with full solutions.
I assign one section ending in a "your turn to play" each day, until we get to the cities, where there is a city assigned per day. Unfortunately, the sections seem to vary pretty wildly in their length. I'd rather have them more evenly paced.
There were some nice review sections near the beginning.
We use this to supplement "Math-U-See", which I find to not be challenging enough.
After completing this (and Geometry), he started Pre-Calc as a freshman in high school.
He got an A in the class.
Dr Schmidt is funny and inspires children to want to learn.
sappy humor to understand math. We need numbers and lots of examples. It didn't work with the learning style in our house. To much talk talk talk. We tried it for a few months and it wasn't for us. Also, which may have been a contributor to our dislike, was that my teen had only taken flvs previously so the jump to Freddy was frustrating.
