Interesting comments about CORE Plus. I've heard a lot of positive comments from people that use it, but if I recall the courses don't match up with NYS courses. Has that changed? For example, I recall proofs and factoring are in the third course, reciprocal trig and complex numbers are in CORE 4, right triangle trig is in CORE 2 etc.
When you use CORE Plus do you have to jump around a lot from course to course, or is there a more recent version of the series that follows NYS courses more closely?
