TAKING SHORMANN ALGEBRA 1 & 2 For 3 SEMESTERS EACH
 Shormann Algebra 1 includes 1/2 credit of geometry and 1 credit of Algebra 1, for a total 1.5 credits. Therefore, it can be taken over three semesters. Shormann Algebra 2 also includes 1/2 credit of geometry and can be taken over three semesters.
Sample Schedule*
Year 1  First 2/3 of Algebra 1 
Year 2  Last 1/3 of Algebra 1 + First 1/3 of Algebra 2 
Year 3  Last 2/3 of Algebra 2 
* Instead of creating a strict schedule, allow the student to learn at their own pace by using the Timed Method (Teacher Guide).
 At the beginning of each school year, if you took a break of one month or more, the student should retake the last 10 Practice Sets to provide review and develop fluency before learning new material.
 If the student struggled during the school year, it may be advisable to have them take all of the quizzes before retaking the last 10 Practice Sets. This is a good way to fill any gaps the student had developed. For details on how to list the credits for this situation, see: High School Transcripts

SHORMANN PRECALCULUS

 If you used Saxon Algebra 2 (2nd or 3rd Edition): Saxon Algebra 2 users earn the first 1/2 credit of Geometry. The remaining 1/2 credit of Geometry is earned in Shormann Precalculus. Therefore, these users can complete the Shormann Precalculus course over 3 semesters.

 Generally, students would complete the first 2/3 of the course in year 1, then take the last 1/3 in the first semester of the following school year. Instead of planning a strict schedule of lessons per week, allow the student to learn at their own pace by using the Timed Method (Teacher Guide).
 After the first 20 lessons or so, a minimum of three assignments should be completed each week. If you take a summer break, retake the last 10 Practice Sets to provide review and develop fluency. For details on how to list the credits, see: High School Transcript

 Other Publishers: If your student did not use Saxon or Shormann for Algebra 2, and completed only 1/2 or less of a geometry course, they can earn the remaining 1/2 credit of geometry in Shormann Precalculus. Since they are earning 1.5 credits, they can take the course over three semesters instead of two.
 If you used Shormann Algebra 2: You have completed your geometry credit. Therefore, in Shormann Precalculus you will earn 1 credit of Precalculus with Trigonometry. Because only 1 credit is earned, you should complete the course in one year (3240 weeks). However, allow the student to learn at their own pace by using the Timed Method (Teacher Guide). If your student takes more than a typical school year to complete it, that's okay. They won't earn .5 credits of math per semester but, the important thing is to make sure they complete a minimum of 3 lessons per week. If you take a break of four weeks or more, retake the last 10 Practice Sets to provide review and develop fluency. If the student struggled during the school year, it may be advisable to have them take all of the quizzes before continuing in the fall.

 I have earned a full credit of geometry in a previous course: Because you have already earned a full credit of geometry, you cannot earn another 1/2 credit in Precalculus. In Shormann Precalculus you will earn 1 credit of Precalculus with Trigonometry. Because only 1 credit is earned, you should complete the course in one year (3240 weeks). However, allow the student to learn at their own pace by using the Timed Method (Teacher Guide). If your student takes more than a typical school year to complete it, that's okay.
