    Hmm, I have a teacher guide I bought used years ago. It has tests in the front of it and it also has the answers to the tests right after the tests. I’m not sure why there would need to be a separate answer key unless there are different tests they are answering.

      I know there was a book of tests, and I had assumed the answer key went with that, but if HLS used it I thought maybe I had missed something. The answer key has answers to 60+ tests and it does not match the ones in the front.

        I have no idea where the tests are that go with this Test Key. I just found it on our shelf and assumed it was the solutions to the tests in the book, but it's not. So maybe I just randomly have this for no reason?

          There was no test book for geometry when I purchased. I don’t believe Cindy wrote any because I thought she didn’t have permission from the publisher. The tests were/are in the front of teachers manual along with answers, but no worked out solutions like you find in the solutions key for homework. I guess it is possible she did more thorough answers for the chapter tests in the teachers manual.

            Is it a Memoria press published answer key or a publisher book?

              The publisher sold it. It must go with the book of tests also by the publisher.

                It is a product that goes with the textbook. We didn't generate it.

                  Maybe it was meant to go with this test bank? https://www.amazon.com/McDougal-Litt.../dp/0395555973 It has the same 1990 publication date as the mysterious Answer Key. It's sort of a moot point, though, since this test book is not available anywhere. Not sure if Tanya may remember ever having seen it at HLS.

                    I feel like our teachers always wrote their own tests. They never seem to like the tests in the textbooks. Teachers are like that. We reinvent the wheel.

                      Has anyone done Algebra and Geometry together? Would that work doing Algebra 1 and Geom or wait until Alg 2 is started?

                        I haven’t done it personally, but I know my niece in public school doubled up by combining algebra 2 and geometry. I have been contemplating working on algebra 2 and geometry together with my rising freshman. I haven’t really figured out the best way to do it, but I hate to drop all the algebra to switch to geometry especially for this kid.

                          You could do both Geometry and Algebra 2 the same year, just remember each is a full class. There is a lot of basic algebra used in Geometry so I wouldn’t do Geo and Algebra 1. Students need to be able to set up equations and solve for c and also have a very solid understanding of ratio algebra to be successful in geometry.

                            Ha! That should have said solve for “x” . No idea what “x” autocorrects to “c” as neither is a standalone word. 🙄 Basically, solve for an unknown quantity.
