Hope you are having a swell summer. After a grueling week in Orlando, I'm happy to get back to the more relaxing (and definitely less taxing) resource planning for the upcoming school year. 

For those of you also in planning mode, here are some high school materials  you may find useful: 

Prentice Hall Algebra 2: So far, I've homeschooled two children at the high school level, and have used a variety of math resource types, including textbook-based (with a hodgepodge of videos not specifically correlated to the text); CD-ROM-based lessons with textbook from a homeschool academy; and totally online courses with no textbook at all. I have found that my high schoolers, although typical "cyber-generation," actually prefer hard-copy when it comes to certain things, math being one of them. So, I'm thinking of using the Prentice Hall Algebra 2 textbook, which appears comprehensive, and has a companion website with projects and real-world applications, and computer-scored lesson quiz.zes, and chapter tests. In addition, here are three sites with video lessons that correlate specifically to each chapter of the Prentice Hall text.

Other Math Textbook/Video Correlations: If you are looking for teaching videos related to specific textbooks for other maths, try HippoCampus. The site has also just added an Art of Problem Solving collection with videos that break down how to solve problems.

Saylor's K-12 Section: Not sure if I mentioned this before, but, which has hundreds of free, online, self-paced college-level courses, also offers some middle- and high-school courses. Currently, there are 9 of them in the areas of English Language Arts, high school math, and two "electives" (one on the Common Core and one on SAT prep).

Enjoy your summer.
