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 Addison-Wesley, it is now available through
Pearson/Prentice Hall. Go to 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, You might also investigate Harold Jacobs' geometry
text, published by Bedford-Freeman-Worth.
