Subject: Re: AM and Textbooks


I have used AM for 4 consecutive years now both as a principal and
math teacher.  And I have experienced tremendous improvement in
student test scores on standarized and "high stakes" tests.  The AM
program can be taught successfully both as a "stand alone" or
supplanting program or with the SAXON math textbooks (versions can be
purchased to match the SAXON math textbooks as well as a few other
publishers).  I have used it both with a textbook and without.  I
prefer to use Accelerated Math with the Saxon math textbooks since the
students need a textbook to refer back to when they don't understand
something.  If anyone ever tells you that Accelerated Math doesn't
work, then they are either an idiot or have never used it.  It should
be used in every school in the country because the students love it,
the teachers love it, and it does raise student performance and test
scores.
