Approved by the CLRN for high school classroom instruction.

Some school districts are drastically cutting classes offered and you may have trouble getting in. The College Tutor series comes to the rescue. Our textbooks can be used in the classroom or as stand-alone teaching substitutes. Our content covers more ground than a typical course does and at lower cost. If your school is reluctant to give credit for your work ask for and insist on a Challenge Test.

Prerequisites: Completion of Geometry, Trigonometry, and Algebra 2 or 3.  A Texas Instruments (TI)-type graphics calculator is recommended.

This textbook is written in a private tutoring fashion for grade levels 10 to 12 to earn advanced placement credits for college admission.  Newer and faster methods, and tools for learning and problem solving with memory aids are introduced that become helpful to memorize the concepts.  Our emphasis is on basic concepts and their proper application to everyday problems.  The approach is interactive and problems are not solved in textbook style; rather they are handled here as they would be solved in a classroom by defining each step and why that step has been chosen.  For example, if a Calculus problem requires 5, 10, or 15 steps to reach the final answer then the College Tutor shows those 5, 10, or 15 steps in detail.  Between solutions, various tips are given at appropriate places about how to approach the problem.  The student may also click on various short videos for further explanations of concepts.  Students will get the feeling of having a discussion with the teacher.  Various queries, which could have arisen in such discussions, have been answered.  The stress is on the concept or general approach, not on the formula or a type-set approach.
