**Why do we use these textbooks?**

At High School Math Live, we have chosen to use curricula that you might find in a public or private school near you. We believe the textbooks we have chosen will best further develop your child into a mathematically inclined student. Textbooks can be purchased inexpensively online. We have chosen older editions so that they are not cost prohibitive.

The Pre-Algebra, Algebra I, and Geometry classes use Glencoe textbooks. This publisher was chosen because of the extensive amount of extra practice available to the students. Some practice is in print form, which the teacher will give out as needed, and some of it is online and can be accessed by your student at any time. There will be plenty of opportunity for your child to gain confidence in their mastery of the material.

The Algebra II and Pre-Calculus courses use Addison Wesley textbooks by Margaret Lial. These books were chosen because of the excellent word problems and the well-written text and example problems.

The Calculus classes use a book written by James Stewart, which includes all of the necessary concepts to prepare for college calculus classes and/or the AP exam.

We have compared the scope and sequence of these books to ensure that they fit together and will provide our students with an excellent mathematical foundation for college level classes.
