For math through Algebra 2, we recommend Saxon Math, first or second edition,
done as Saxon intended. That is, do all speed drills as scheduled
in the lessons, and do all problems until
they're all correct before moving to the next lesson.


For trigonometry and precalculus, The Ohio State University classes
Math 1149 and Math 1150 (see The Ohio State University
math course website) have excellent coverage. See also Dr. deLaubenfels's "Fun with Functions".
We also posted a probability book, "Fun with Introductory Probability", that only requires the first year of
high school algebra.


There are many misrepresentations of math in the world of "education"; we particularly encourage
you to avoid presentations of math that present it as a flashy spectator sport, or ones that
abandon a subject forever after one fleeting success. (Imagine a basketball program that removes
the basketball hoop once you've made a basket.) Learning math requires repetition over long periods
of time.
