Next Year’s Teaching Slate

New school, new classes to teach. And lucky for me it’s classes I’ve never really taught before!

First thing is a hybrid Algebra/Geometry class. First half of the year is Algebra 1 (with the Common Core Regents at the end), and the second half of the year is Geometry (again, with the Common Core Regents, or whatever they’ve released by next June).  The other course I’m teaching is Algebra 2/Trigonometry (for the whole year). The books we’re using are…

Algebra 1: Barron’s Let’s Review Integrated Algebra

ISBN-13: 978-1438000176

ISBN-13: 978-1438000176

Geometry:  Geometry (McDougal Littell Jurgensen Geometry)

ISBN-13: 978-0395977279

ISBN-13: 978-0395977279

Algebra 2/Trig:  Algebra 2 (McGraw-Hill)

ISBN-13: 978-0078884825

ISBN-13: 978-0078884825

I’m open to any and all suggestions or warnings about these texts as I head into next year. Also, any suggestions on where I can get them for cheap? The Barron’s book is only $10 so that’s fine, but the others seem to be a bit pricey. I’m sure my school has some version of the teachers edition so if not I’m not super worried.
