Our Shormann Interactive Math is a college preparatory curriculum that emphasizes mastery, long-term retention, and fluency (speed and accuracy). Together, our Shormann Algebra 1 and Shormann Algebra 2 courses earn 1 credit of geometry, 1 credit of Algebra 1, and 1 credit of Algebra 2. These courses go beyond meeting high school math standards by teaching every concept on the newly redesigned PSAT and SAT, as well as the ACT. These courses have over 200 practice problems from these college entrance exams.
Earn College Credit
After completing Shormann Algebra 2, students can spend an extra 2-3 weeks using the included CLEP Professor course. This course prepares students for the CLEP College Algebra exam which earns up to 3 college credits and 1 high school math credit. Therefore, our courses are not only college preparatory, they can replace a college level math course. Students are not required to achieve this level. But, if they want to they have all the tools they need.
Is Shormann Math for strong math students?
Shormann Math can be used as a remedial, standard, or honors math course. The incremental development and continual review described below means that all students who have completed pre-algebra can successfully complete Shormann Algebra 1. The difference is that strong math students will complete the course in 36 weeks or so. Average math students usually complete the course in three semesters or less. Because the student earns 3 semesters of credits (1 credit of Algebra 1 and 1/2 credit of Geometry) and the subscription period is 24 months, spreading the course out over 3 semesters is perfectly acceptable.
To ensure all students learn at their own pace, we recommend using the timed method. Instead of requiring the student to complete a lesson per day, have the student work on math four or five days per week for no more than an hour to an hour and a half per day. At the end of this time, stop math. Then, pick up where you left off the next day. This ensures students have the time needed to go back and re-learn forgotten concepts using the help links above each question. See the article below for more details about the timed method.
