3 Semester Schedule for Shormann Math

SHORMANN ALGEBRA 1 & 2

  • Each course earns 1.5 credits and can be completed over three semesters. Instead of scheduling the course over three semesters, allow the student to learn at their own pace by using the Timed Method (Teacher Guide). If you take a summer break, retake the last 10 Practice Sets to provide review and develop fluency. For details on how to list the credits, see: High School Transcripts

SHORMANN PRECALCULUS

  • Saxon Algebra 2 Users (2nd or 3rd Edition): This course earns 1/2 credit of Geometry. The remaining 1/2 credit of Geometry is earned in Shormann Precalculus. Therefore, these users can complete Shormann Precalculus course over 3 semesters. Instead of planning out the course over three semesters, allow the student to learn at their own pace by using the Timed Method (Teacher Guide). After the first 20 lessons or so, a minimum of three lessons should be completed each week. If you take a summer break, retake the last 10 Practice Sets to provide review and develop fluency. For details on how to list the credits, see: High School Transcripts
  • Shormann Algebra 2 Users:  Upon completion of Shormann Algebra 2, 1 full credit of Geometry and 1 credit of Algebra 2 is earned. Shormann Precalculus earns 1 credit of Precalculus with Trigonometry. Because only 1 credit is earned, most students complete Precalculus in 32-40 weeks. However, allow the student to learn at their own pace by using the Timed Method (Teacher Guide). If your student takes more than a typical school year to complete it, that's okay.  They won't earn .5 credits of math per semester butThe important thing is to make sure they complete a minimum of 3 lessons per week.  If you take a break of four weeks or more, retake the last 10 Practice Sets to provide review and develop fluency. For details on how to list the credits, see: High School Transcripts
