Shormann Algebra 1 with Integrated Geometry

#### The Best Algebra Program

Posted by Unknown on 5th May 2018

We were new to Shormann Math last year when I started my oldest with Alg 2 and my second child with Alg 1. I liked Saxon but felt it was too long, too tedious, and just not “right”. After a very nice, long conversation with Mrs. Shormann, we decided to try it and the program exceeded my expectations. Even a child who isn’t very math-y can do well. Here are a few things I love about Shormann Math: 1. It teaches students to work independently - he tells students what steps to take when they run into difficulty and it dies not include asking mom! 2. A strong Christian foundation and focus. 3. Automatic grading! 4. Younger siblings get a deeply discounted price when they reach the level you paid full price for (so it’s tge save as passing down textbooks) 5. Thr approach to having a time limit for each day versus finishing the whole lesson each day. I could go on and on, but bottom line: there is no better math program out there! My children are learning things I’ve never heard of and excelling in math! THANK YOU DR SHORMANN!

#### My son is thriving!

Posted by Denise on 13th Dec 2017

Shormann math (Algebra 1) is exactly what my son needs. He thrives on Dr. Shormann’s gentle style.. He is enormously gifted as an instructor. There are so many safety nets that students can’t help but succeed.

My son was written off as a poor student last year in math, but this year he has exceeded my expectations. This is a testament to the precise instruction given.

Look no further. This is a fantastic program.

#### Best Math and Test Prep

Posted by Babs on 11th Nov 2017

We have used Saxon in conjunction with the DIVE learning and Dr. Shormann live classes for years. My oldest is graduating college this year and my senior is graduating high school...both boys finished college algebra and calculus by the end of their junior years AND scored in the 93nd and 99th percentile respectively on the ACT! This was in part due to the integration of geometry with the math. Yet, as I sit with my third student as he goes through the Shormann Alg. 1 lessons, I can see that Shormann Algebra far exceeds what Saxon provided. And I often stop the lesson after Dr. Shormann shares Biblical truth to tell my son what a privilege it is to have that wisdom with our math! Additionally, my son really enjoys Dr. Shormann. Thank you all at DIVE for providing this wonderful curriculum.

#### An answer to prayer!

Posted by Kristen on 31st Oct 2017

We needed to change up our math program this year. I love Saxon math and have used it for years, but we needed greater accountability. I love that Shormann math is a similar math program as Saxon, but provides the accountability we need!

#### Loving Shormann Math

Posted by Unknown on 29th Aug 2017

I just wanted to let you that I am loving the Shormann math. I used Saxon and the DIVE CDS for my first kids, and it wasn't super successful because of the number of problems required for each lesson. I was hesitant to buy Shormann math because of the online component. However, I printed everything off (student text and the teacher books), and we are cruising. I love the Biblical integration, the historical references to important mathematicians, and the predictable 20 problem homework set. The online homework submission is actually much easier than other platforms that we have tried before (user friendly with multiple choice instead of having kids type in long equations that are likely to have typos). Anyway, this is a great investment, and I look forward to Algebra 1/Geometery now. Thank you for a great product.

#### Great Transition

Posted by Kemberly L. Moody on 23rd Aug 2017

Shormann math was a great purchase for my daughter. The program and videos allow her to work very independently and pace herself to be consistent and to mastery with her lessons. She enjoys the integration of the topics related to math shared in the videos.

#### Perfect All-Around Product

Posted by Jessica on 27th Jun 2017

This economical, self-paced math curriculum with video lessons has been an answer to prayer for our large homeschooling family. It fits in our budget, yet we don't sacrifice any features. The interactive, self-paced style takes the teaching load off of Mom and Dad. The links to the lesson where a homework question is addressed makes it easy for a parent to jump into the middle of an assignment and help the child find the answer; however, it's so well designed, that I do not receive many questions from my student. I tell everyone I know about these math and science products!

#### Life Saver

Posted by Grateful Mom on 7th Mar 2017

My child used Abeka her entire school career (which she loved). However, we switched to Saxon Pre-Algebra for 8th grade, because we joined Classical Conversations. But she hated Saxon and was in tears everyday. So, we tried Bob Jones for Algebra 1, but it wasn't working for us. I found Shormann at the end of the first semester and ordered it. My child loves Math again and is excited because she understands it and is once again doing well. Also, the logic taught in Shormann is a refresher of the logic course she took last year in Classical Conversations. I love how Shormann is such a perfect match for CC and the Biblical aspect to it. This is not just a traditional Math program with Bible verse scattered throughout. Shormann integrates Biblical teaching into the lessons so well. I have finally found a Math program that we can use for the rest of her High School years.

Shormann Math has been such a blessing and an answer to prayer.

Very good program. Took a bit to figure out how to use it, but once my son figured it out, it has been a great program. Prior to using Shormann we used Saxon with Dive CD.

#### So thankful for Shormann Math!

Posted by Unknown on 1st Oct 2016

Shormann Math has made my son more independent. He is learning and doing Algebra 1 without my assistance. I believe Shormann math is preparing my son for college. I am very pleased with his progress.

#### Like Saxon, but updated, interactive, and encouraging

Posted by Jeff Jarrett on 25th Sep 2016

This curriculum has been helpful to us while our 9th grader is re-taking Algebra 1. He did Saxon last year, but needed more instructor-led introduction to the material. We like how it keeps with the Saxon 3rd edition approach, but is updated. We like that the number of problems is reduced (to 20) compared to Saxon (30). They have been flexible to change grades / scores when I determined that my son should have gotten credit for an answer (i.e. computer glitch, typo, etc...).

#### Math for Values Oriented Kids

Posted by Susan Foster on 10th Feb 2016

Math was becoming a drudgery with my right brained gifted son who couldn't understand "why" math was purposeful. Now, with the guiding faithful voice of Mr. Shormann, my son experiences math daily the way God wants us to understand his world. A math tutor said it was the best curriculum he has seen.

Thank you Mr. Shormann

#### A Blessing for our family!

Posted by Yolanda Gutierrez on 12th Jan 2016

We have been homeschooling now for 10 years. After trying several math programs for years, we felt that our daughter needed the review that the saxon math offered, but we wanted a more updated program with video teaching instruction that would also help her see why she would get an incorrect answer if she needed assistance with a solution. Shormann Algebra I , has been an answer prayer!! She can do her lecture with video instruction, when she gets a problem wrong she is able to see a video presentation on the solution, after she has given an opportunity to solve it on her own with notes from lessons, this has been a great help, since she goes back and re-learns a concept on her own in an attempt to solve her answer before she can access the solution video. She has been progressing thru this curriculum in a satisfactory manner as she is self motivated to get a better grade. Her retention has been increasing as she gets to practice problems previously introduced!

If i could add something to the program it would be supplemental problems, so the students can get more practice on problems they may have some trouble with! Overall We are Glad we made the decision to make the change to Shormann Algebra I.

#### Wonderful Program!

Posted by Emily on 5th Nov 2015

Thank you for this absolutely wonderful program!!! After many years of homeschooling, after many different math programs, and after endless hours of research for the perfect program for our family...we have found it! My boys are both taking Shormann Algebra and we all could not be happier!

As I write this, my boys are sitting with me at the kitchen table on their computers doing a DIVE ICP vocab game. I think it's called "Space Race". Never before in the history of their lives have they ever been so excited to learn any kind of vocabulary. Seriously...I am in awe watching them learn science with such enthusiasm. Our table is shaking from them tying in answers as fast as they can. I can't thank you enough!

#### Loving It!

Posted by Shannon C. on 8th Oct 2015

We are loving Shormann Algebra 1! We have tried 4 different Algebra 1 curriculums, and this one is THE BEST!!! Thanks so much!

#### Comprehensive!

Posted by Unknown on 26th Aug 2015

We love Shormann Algebra 1. It not only teaches the operations but also math history which is so important in learning math. We also love the digital format because it is easy to use and can go with us anywhere.

#### Shormann Algebra 1

Posted by Bobbie on 1st Aug 2015

The Shormann Algebra 1 was great! My son grew so much. From the very beginning, Dr. Shormann presented the forefathers of mathematics. Then, giving God the glory for His creation, he proceeded to apply math to it. The process of review on every lesson was helpful and kept my son practicing the previous skills all through the year. The whole eLearning system was helpful, too. The student could flip back to previous lessons to quickly re-learn forgotten concepts, grades were posted to view. Having Dr. Shormann available via email was very helpful. Many thanks to Dr. Shormann for a terrific curriculum that is God honoring, well put together, full of test prep, user friendly, and prepares the student with confidence for more math in their future. I am very excited to see all that Shormann Algebra 2 has to offer.

"Love this math course! It is exactly what I was hoping to find for my daughter. I've been homeschooling for over 20 years and have used Saxon, but Shormann math is much better. My daughter plans to major in Civil Engineering and this will give her the foundation that she needs. Thanks Dr.Shormann!!"

Shormann Algebra 2 with Integrated Geometry

#### Standford testing results

Posted by DK on 25th Apr 2018

My daughter (8th grade, taking Algebra 1) would say that math is her least favorite subject, but after taking her achievement tests she changed her mind. She missed two problems and is in the 98th percentile. She loves the challenge of Dr. Shormann math and thought the Standford 10 was to easy.

#### It Finally Clicked

Posted by Sandy on 19th Feb 2018

Math was a drudgery before we started using this program. We switched after three years of Saxon. My daughter completed Algebra 1 in two and a half semesters and, nearly a quarter into Algebra 2, she is doing very well. I love that she is completing Geometry as she completes Algebra! I am completely hands off, except for looking at her grades each day., which is another plus. Lastly, I am grateful to be able to email Dr. Shormann with questions - a very appreciated bonus to using this program.

#### My daughter finally is getting it

Posted by Kristin Davis on 12th Feb 2018

My daughter has been stuck in certain concepts and can’t move on in Math. Finally this program has helped her get unstuck. She is very bright but has problems with Math plus she hated it. Now, it’s not her favorite subject but a joy when she comes to me and says, Mom!! I get this!!! So a great program when we have tried so many different ones. Pls ACT SAT aligned is a plus.

The only thing I wish they had is another side extra lesson for when then need even more explanation. She gets through it by re doing the same lesson but can be repetitive for a teen.

Also I wish you had more subjects, such as Literature, History and Writting !!

She loves the science as well.

#### Best High School Curriculum

Posted by Unknown on 16th Jan 2018

Love this curriculum. Video teaching combined with matching text and video explanations of answers. My child loves math again. This has been a God send.

#### Best online course we have used to date

Posted by Homeschooling Through High School on 4th Nov 2017

We made the switch from Saxon math to Shormann math from the recommendation of another homeschool family. We have used other online courses before, but this is the fist time using the DIVE course online. We are VERY pleased with the accuracy and functionality of this course. Would highly recommend it to other students and we plan on using it again next year!

#### I learn and it's not overwhelming!!

Posted by Jean Coyer on 29th Aug 2017

My daughter is using the Shoremann Algebra 2 this year and loves it! She did not like the DIVE with Saxon that we used in the past. She said this is much better and she really enjoys math now. Thank you
