NOTE: This apcalculus EDG will be closing in the next few weeks. Please sign up for the new AP Calculus Teacher Community Forum at https://apcommunity.collegeboard.org/gettingstarted and post messages there.  David, et al. 
While you are looking at Algebra I texts, may I respectfully suggest that you examine my "Algebra I: Expressions, Equations, and Applications." Originally published by AddisonWesley, it is now available through Pearson/Prentice Hall. Go to www.phschool.com. In the search for authors box, type "foerster." You will also get reference to my "Algebra and Trigonometry: Functions and Applications."
For geometry, you might try Michael Serra's text, originally published by Key Curriculum Press, and now available through Kendall Hunt Publishing, www.kendallhunt.com. You might also investigate Harold Jacobs' geometry text, published by BedfordFreemanWorth.
Regards, Paul
