(About the Math Without Borders “Golden Logo”)

The challenge facing homeschool students and adults studying mathematics at home is that mathematics textbooks are not designed to be used alone. A lot goes on in a good math class besides reading the text and doing problem sets. Textbooks are designed to be taught by an experienced teacher. A good teacher should be able to:
 give an overview of the subject to “put the text in context.”
 model the thinking skills and strategies that go into analysis and problem solving.
 illustrate, demonstrate, and clarify (as well as prove) the underlying concepts.
 point out links between different parts of the subject and applications beyond what is in the text.
Rather than start from scratch with yet another textbook, I decided to start with the best existing textbooks (selected based on 35 years of teaching experience) and provide the kinds of additional support for home study students that a good teacher would provide in a classroom.
