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 twovolume 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 pretests 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 pretests, 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. Handwritten examples and exercises make work seem less formal. Vocabulary and reading levels are simple. Instructions are clear and direct. Each book is a complete textworkbook. Students develop understanding by solving equations & inequalities intuitively before formal solutions are introduced. a Full year's course that stands entirely on its own.

Saxon
Saxon Math Program
John Saxon
For starters, I want to put out there that my experience of Saxon is that either people love it or hate it and I think that is based on a lot of different things. What I am convinced of is that this program, if used correctly, will give your child a solid math foundation. Personally, I love it!
I love the Saxon program as I find it extremely solid. If you want to read my indepth review visit my site at
