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.

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.
