Saxon Math Calculus 2nd Edition Compass Teaching CD-Rom
Compass Teaching Cd-Roms are video clip lectures developed for use with Saxon's Home Study Kits (though designed FOR, they were not designed BY Saxon).
Lecture sets, which contain one lecture per lesson, are available by level for Math 54 through Calculus and Physics. The lectures are approximately 15-20 minutes long. Each lecture is stored in its own file. To use, the student opens his text to the next lesson and opens the corresponding lecture file on the computer. Lectures take place on a chalkboard/whiteboard screen. You hear the teacher, but don't actually see him - rather you only see what he writes on the board. The student's job is to follow along in the text (please note: the CDs do not follow along with the text on a problem-by-problem basis) and to take notes. In a typical lecture, the teacher gives a short explanation and works several practice problems. Lectures are given by Dr. David Shormann, an experienced math and science teacher. Lectures can easily be paused, rewound, or fast-forwarded so the student can work at his own pace.
Four quarterly exams, with video solutions, are also provided (these are based on the exams found in the Saxon Physics test book, so students can study these to prepare for those exams). At each level, these tutorials provide valuable verbal instruction for students. System Requirements: Windows 95 or greater, Mac OS (all versions, including Lion), speakers, CD-ROM drive.
