Included in the Geometry DVD Bundle
The course itself is designed to not only teach, but to show, students about Geometry, and where it applies in their lives today. Even a student who may not be a "math person" should be able to navigate this course independently and successfully. Parents who are great at math will find ample opportunity to supplement the course and add creative material, while parents who may not have an extensive math foundation will find their students soundly supported and provided with many resources to succeed and learn Geometry. Wherever you are on the spectrum of learning, we can help. This course is college prep.
Geometry is designed to be taken prior to Algebra 2 with Trigonometry and after Algebra 1.

We are very pleased to have had this product recommended to us, and now that we have it in front of us, we are delighted by its value!

Although Dr. Callahan is straightforward and teaches without theatrics, he makes the geometry come alive and make sense for the student learning at home on his own. There are some cheezy skits that probably were intended to make it "fun" but only take away from the level of instruction Dr. Callahan is giving. My son enjoys the DVD and the discovery method of Jacobs Geometry. He is doing great all on his own and that helps this Geometry-phobic mom happy!

My 16 year old son is breezing right through this curriculum and enjoying it too! I am so glad! As a mother of 11 (with #12 on the way), and home schooling all my children, I am really grateful to have Dr. Callahan do the explaining of Math at the higher levels! What a relief! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

As Mark from MN indicated... this curriculum seems to be more geared toward the creative, intuitive types.. and I for one am THRILLED!! Like Mark - I am a left brained Systems Analyst who struggled to understand why my daughter could not understand the Saxon methods through Algebra. But as she struggled and I tried to help I realized it was a clash in our learning/teaching styles. With this Geometry curriculum she has a 94% average on her tests and I don't think she has asked me more than 10 questions all year so far. (she used to ask me 10 Saxon questions daily.) I see her holding her Geometry book at angles for perspective. Using Toothpicks to illustrate an example in the book. More than 75% of the time I DON'T see what she is seeing - or understanding!!! But SHE DOES! this is where Homeschooling is such a blessing!! As her teacher I can't teach nor learn the way she does for this subject and if she was in a PS - she would probably have a left brained teacher like ME! But THANK YOU Dr. Callahan for putting together this curriculum. No more math tears in our home! :) :)

We are just finishing our second year using AskDrCallahan curriculum and we love it. We homeschool our son and originally used Saxon Algebra I. My son got an A for the year, but he HATED algebra. I made the decision to do Algebra I again, using AskDrCallahan Algebra I. He loved it! It made sense to him and he could see how he would be able to use it to solve everyday problems. AskDrCallahan explains how algebra is used in the real world. It is broken down and illustrated step-by-step in clear language. There is no unnecessary information or fluff. We're finishing up with Geometry, and we've already ordered the Algebra II set. My son likes doing his math now, and his ACT scores reflect that!
