Teaching math with Dr. Callahan

If you're anxious about what to do for high school math, my interview with Dr. Callahan from the Fall issue of The Old Schoolhouse Magazine is now online and may help you rest a little easier.
"Dr. Callahan has developed a remedy for your math anxiety: AskDrCallahan . AskDrCallahan is a complete college prep high school curriculum including courses in algebra, geometry, algebra 2 with trigonometry, and calculus.

Dr. Dale Callahan is both a homeschool father and an engineering professor at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. He knows exactly what you need to do to help your child master advanced concepts and succeed at the college level. His courses include a DVD for each lesson, along with the best standard college-level textbooks. Free support and a money-back guarantee are also available. (Read the entire article)

My son, Joshua (16), completed his Geometry course and my daughter, Katie (14) is using it now. They both had the same question, "Why can't all math curriculums be like this?" The combination of the text, Jacobs Geometry, and Dr. Callahan's DVD's make this an excellent course. Josh has now moved into the Algebra 2/trig course in preparation for Calculus next fall.

For more information about the Dr. Callahan and his courses, you can visit his website Ask Dr. Callahan.
