Christian Light Publications
Christian Light Education Mathematics Sunrise Edition
CLE’s Mathematics program offers solid math instruction that teaches from a Christian perspective at a very reasonable price. Each grade level course includes a one- or two-volume teacher’s guide and ten LightUnit student workbooks. (Third grade has a single volume for teacher's guide.) A few other items are either required or optional, especially in the early grades. CLE has built in continuous review. The program emphasizes mastering math facts and computation skills, often taking students into more challenging territory in some areas than do other math programs. Daily flash card practice and speed drills help students master the math facts. In first and second grade, students work on the addition and subtraction facts. Second graders also begin to learn the multiplication facts. Mental math exercises are included beginning at the end of second grade and continuing throughout all levels through eighth grade. CLE sells customized Addition and Subtraction Flash Cards that are coded and come with dividers for setting up a systematic approach for drill and review that both circulates the cards and arranges them for daily drills. While CLE sells multiplication and division flash cards, these are fairly standard, so you can use another set if you already have them. The speed drills are found at the back of each LightUnit book for grades one through five and then in the first LightUnit of grade six. The first LightUnit of each course after first grade thoroughly reviews previously taught concepts and facts with pre-tests and practice sets. The purpose is both for review after a ''summer break'' and as a diagnostic test for those who might just be starting the CLE program. If students do well on each of the pre-tests, they can skip the practice sets and move on.

Borenson & Associates
Hands-on Equations Learning System
Mary Pride says: ''Here's something really new-a hands-on approach to algebraic linear equations! You know what those are: fun stuff like 2x -2(-x+4)=x +(-2). With Hands-On Equations, learning pre-algebra and solving simple linear equations can be as fun and easy as playing a game.'' This patented teaching method empowers the teacher to successfully present essential algebraic concepts to students in grades 3 to adult. It does not require any algebraic prerequisites. Its system provides students with an intuitive understanding of the most fundamental algebraic concepts and makes algebraic linear equations accessible to 3rd grade gifted students, 4th grade average students, and 5th grade LD students. Hands-On Equations consists of: manuals for Levels I, II, & III; a student kit of game pieces with flat laminated balance; a set of worksheets; and an answer key.

Key to Algebra Books
Julie King
Key to Workbooks offer a positive alternative to large, expensive textbooks which students often find complicated and intimidating. Only one concept is presented per page, so students have time to understand new ideas without being overwhelmed. Hand-written examples and exercises make work seem less formal. Vocabulary and reading levels are simple. Instructions are clear and direct. Each book is a complete text-workbook. Students develop understanding by solving equations & inequalities intuitively before formal solutions are introduced. a Full year's course that stands entirely on its own.
