New Math Programs Available
RightStart Math is easy to teach and gives children the foundation they need for everyday living in our technological world. With an ideal math education, students understand 95% and memorize only 5%. When children understand, they need to spend less time in review and practice. When they don’t understand, they memorize until the burden becomes too great and they give up.
RightStart emphasizes understanding. This unique program de-emphasizes counting. Instead, students visualize quantities and use visual pictures to learn facts. The primary learning tool is the AL Abacus, a specially designed, two-sided abacus that is both kinesthetic and visual. For Grades K-6.
VideoText Interactive Math offers students an enjoyable way to learn Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry, Trigonometry, and Pre-Calculus.
Students master a particular concept before going on to the next. Because each concept is bite-sized, students efficiently understand how and why a particular procedure works. Students will conduct their own error analysis and teach back the concepts they have mastered, and use the information already mastered in future lessons.
The online multimedia presentation (with closed captions), in conjunction with hardcopy Course Notes, Student WorkText, Solutions Manuals, and Progress Tests, provide an opportunity for students to grow mathematically and develop confidence in their ability. Algebra and Geometry bundles available.
Learn more about RightStart Math and VideoText Interactive.
New Chemistry Program
By customer suggestion, we now offer the Berean Builders Chemistry program by Dr. Jay Wile: Discovering Design with Chemistry. This independent-study, college-prep course covers the foundational aspects of chemistry and their mathematical applications. The accompanying Science Supply Kit includes items for the experiments that illustrate the various concepts being explored.

Language Arts Updates
The 2017 & 2018 Language Arts IGs included many well-received upgrades, including rubrics to help you evaluate how your children are performing, teaching scripts you can read to your children as you introduce new ideas, concepts or assignments, big picture explanations and overview summaries for each week. We have continued to upgrade our Language Arts programs through several of our high school literature programs: American Historical Literature 130 and Classical Literature 230.
All Language Arts IGs, levels K-230, now include all of these updates to take out all of the guesswork so you’ll teach language arts with confidence.
Additionally, the Creative Expression assignments in Literature 130 and 230 have been edited for clarity and SAT preparation assignments have been added to match the new essay section of the SAT.
Classical Literature 230 has also been updated to include two new titles and removed multiple titles from previous years so there is no longer overlap with Literature J. The 230 IG has also been updated to include poetry notes.
