Math and Science
Apologia Science - Elizabeth's first choice for
Bibical high school science.
Teaching Textbooks - Dana's favorite for high
school math. She appreciates its ease of use for parents and students, as well as the solutions CD that provides
the answers for all practice and test questions.
Math U See - Elizabeth utilized this with her
high school daughter. After using more traditional programs, she found this much more user friendly including a
DVD that provides demonstrations of all problem types. Another advantage is the multiple tests offer daily,
unit, quarterly and semester testing allowing great flexibility for the parent. Allyson, Elizabeth's daughter,
claims it as her favorite math curriculum.
Professor B's - Elizabeth recommends this math
curriculum in elementary and middle school because it answers the question "why?" rather than just "how?". The
techniques are considerably different and require parent involvement, but customer service is excellent. When
calling, you often get the Professor himself.
Hymnal Online- Download words of classic
hymns, and listen to them online.

Where to go for Books
Book shopping: these sites offer great prices and most of the books in our curriculum.*
No shipping charge if you order more than $25 in new books. Do check out the cost of
used books, however; sometimes it is cheaper to pay shipping and buy used. Compare the costs before you choose.
Half.com: this site offers
some excellent prices on used books, but beware of postage as items are sold by individuals. Be sure that the
price plus the postage still offers the best deal.
