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.
**Honors or Standard High School Course? **Shormann Math was designed for use by either an honors or standard course. For detailed instructions, select Honors on the Table of Contents in the Teacher Guide for details.
Earn College Credit
- ALGEBRA 2: After completing Shormann Algebra 2, students can spend an extra 2-3 weeks using the included CLEP Professor for College Algebra. This course prepares students for the CLEP College Algebra exam which earns up to 3 college credits and 1 high school math credit.
- PRECALCULUS: After completing Shormann Precalculus, students can spend an extra 2-3 weeks using the included CLEP Professor for Precalculus. This course prepares students for the CLEP Precalculus exam which earns up to 3 college credits and 1 high school math credit.
- CALCULUS: After completing Shormann Calculus, students can spend an extra 2-3 weeks using the included CLEP Professor for Calculus to prepare for the CLEP Calculus exam and/or the AP Calculus AB exam. A passing score on the CLEP Calculus exam earns up to 3 college credits and 1 high school math credit.
- While students are not required to achieve this level, they have all the tools they need to succeed, if they choose to do so.
**Is Shormann Math only 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 32-36 weeks. 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.
