It appears that the prices of the geometry books have been marked up very recently. As I stated below, the books are older and their prices before the CORONA-pandemic were quite low. I am sorry if some sellers are trying to take advantage of new homeschoolers. I do not sell the books. I maybe able to find the geometry book from my prior students. Let me know if you cannot find one at reasonable price.

I have chosen 2 algebra textbooks (they has been in publication for over 15 years) that are excellent for several reasons. They contain hundreds of examples and thousands of problems to work. The books are required for 3 of my classes. For all examples, the answers and the steps to work the problems are given . The answers to all odd problems are also given. At the end of each chapter is a review and a test. The answers to these are also given. The organization and layout of the algebra books is excellent.

Be sure that you order the book by confirming the isbn number. There are several books with the same title as these. You must have the book I have stated below for your respective class. Not all classes require a book.

It is wise to consider paying a little extra for shipping if you want to begin quickly.  Some sellers offer faster shipping.   The book should be cheap so spend a little extra to get the book quickly.
