    Re: Prentice Hall Algebra 2

    And sometimes, even with the "direct" approach, you still have to "discover" what you are doing!!!

      I am trying to purchase the solutions manual for the Alg II (Smith) book. I don't see it with the link provided. I've contacted Pearson and waiting to hear back. Could someone please post the ISBN number if you have the book?
      Thanks!

        Thanks!
        For the Smith Classics edition with ISBN 0-13-133798-X (or 97801313379895, depending which code you use, but it's the same book), I purchased (eBay or Amazon, can't remember) a PH Algebra 2 with Trigonometry Solution Key from 2001, ISBN 0-13-053359-9 (you can omit all the dashes when searching) or the longer code 9780130533593. It includes both the Try This! exercises, and those at the end of each lesson. I checked just a handful of solutions, and they matched the exercises in the book, so I'm confident this is what's needed for that textbook.

        Good luck!

          The series is currently in process of going out of print so I doubt you will get much help from Pearson directly.

              All the more reason to get ahold of a solutions manual now

                Yes! We're actually about to begin Algebra I, but I wanted to be all set for II well in advance! Glad you were able to find one!

                  I just found a website called Slader that has solutions for Algebra 1 Prentice Hall Classics that recently went out of print. I was looking for the solutions manual and came across this. Is anyone familiar with it? I’ll link it below. Would a solutions manual have the same ISBN as the textbook? Sorry if that’s a silly question.

                  Is the Algebra 2 also out of print?

                    The Solution Key book for the Smith Algebra 1 has ISBN 9780130444035 (or the shorter 0130444030. The ISBN of the Smith textbook itself is 9780131337701 (or 013133770X), so no, it's not the same ISBN. Thank you for the link!

                      It looks like it isn’t exactly a solutions manual, but a website where people upload answers to the problems.

                        This is why high school students should not receive much (if any) grade credit for doing homework. These solution/answer websites are ubiquitous, and students can find them easily.
                        Math homework is practice for the purpose of learning the material/skill, it is not a tool for assessment.

                          This is an interesting take! I just thought of that website as giving *me* another option for quick access to the solutions... My kids are still kept offline, except for MPOA classes. But I see that it's wise at some point to switch from a homework mentality to a test/quiz mentality, so to speak: though I feel quite naive for having had this epiphany only now

                              Cindy, It never even occurred to me that a student would discover this! How naive! I, too, was thinking of it for myself. I’m glad I posted and you shared your wisdom. I’m going to be teaching Algebra 1 to my oldest and a friend’s child. I’ll have to be sure and let the other parent know these sites exist.

                              This will be my first year teaching Upper Level Math and first time teaching a child besides my own. In fact, I did everything I could to not teach Algebra, but none of it worked out. I’m going through the lessons myself and doing the homework, while making notes for how I want to teach. I’m thinking I’d like them to read through the lessons and write out all the definitions before I teach the material. Would this work? One student struggles with math and the other catches on fairly quickly.

                              Thanks for your help!

                                Courtney,
                                How often will you meet to teach the lesson? That will affect my answer.
                                Will you will meet in person once a week (4 lessons)?
                                or
                                Will you meet in person twice a week (2 lessons each meeting)?
                                or
                                Will you meet in person for every lesson?
