Meet Teacher

David Shormann, PhD

With degrees in aerospace engineering and science, Dr. Shormann has spent the past 17 years teaching Saxon Math 5/4 through AP Calculus, as well as AP Biology, Chemistry, and Physics, to thousands of homeschoolers around the world. He teaches math as the language of science, a tool to better understand God and the world He created. I am majoring in Chemistry at the University of Nevada. I attribute my knowledge of Chemistry to the fact that I was able to understand the levels of math presented within the course. And that is all thanks to you. I appreciate all the time and effort you put in to helping me understand the concepts that were a little difficult for me. You are an amazing professor and such an outstanding person. I cannot wait to start this next chapter in my educational career and am so thankful that I understand the math needed to continue it. Your help really made the difference between having a basic understanding of a concept and comprehending the topic fully. You truly are the best professor ever :) ~Brittany

Saxon + DIVE = Success! Lesson 27

c2 - b2 = a2 + b 2 + b2 c2 = a2+ b2

Lesson 32

x+3=9 - 3 -3 x=6

Expert Video Instruction for every Saxon Math Lesson Math is the language of science. Like learning a language, the original Saxon curriculum begins with the fundamentals and provides students ample practice before gently introducing more advanced material. The only math program basesd on incremental development, continual review, and cummulative assesments, Saxon Math increases long-term retention and recall speed by continually reviewing previously learned concepts over a long period of time. Long-term retention increases recall speed, raising standardized test scores and making it easier to apply to other subjects, like science.

The lesson in the Saxon textbook is not the complete lesson. John Saxon designed his program to be taught by a trained Saxon instructor. The DIVE course provides this instruction! Teaching 3-5 practice problems, Dr. Shormann connects the new concept to previous ones, making complex concepts easy to understand. The lesson in the book does not make these connections. Without DIVE, the concepts can appear disorganized and confusing. DIVE into Saxon Math and reach higher levels of achievement.

Dr. Shormann teaches the new concept section of every lesson in the corresponding Saxon text. He provides important information, not included in the Saxon lesson, that makes it easier to learn. Lectures are 1015 minutes long. Students take notes and work problems with Dr. Shormann, pausing and rewinding as needed. The lecture has slightly different practice problems than the Saxon lesson. This provides additional practice and builds profieciency on the new concept.

This section provides practice on previous concepts. While essential to building longterm retention, this continual practice often requires re-learning recent concepts until they are stored in long-term memory. DIVE makes re-learning quick and easy. Simply click on the DIVE lesson (in parentheses, next to each question) and watch the lesson. Then try to solve the problem again. If you can’t, skip it and go to the next problem. You will correct it in the next step.

Parents should grade work for younger students but in Algebra 1 and up should grade their own work using the Answer Key. Missed problems should be corrected by referring to the DIVE lecture for that problem (printed in parentheses next to the problem). If needed, the Saxon Solutions Manual has step by-stepsolutions to every homework and test question. If more help is needed students can email Dr. Shormann.

Typically there is one test per week. The tests are cumulative, meaning they test over previous concepts. Tests should be graded by a parent then corrected by the student. A lesson reference number next to each question makes it easy to “plug any holes” by re-watching the corresponding DIVE lecture. If more help is needed students can email Dr. Shormann.

DIVE

Like the European and Asian countries that outperform the US on national math exams, Saxon integrates the teaching of algebra and geometry. This makes geometry easier to understand, increases long-term retention, and raises college entrance exam scores. One-half credit of geometry is earned in Algebra 2 and onehalf credit is earned in the first 40 lessons of Advanced Math. Therefore it is redundant and unneccessary to take a separate year of geometry.

Saxon Teacher

In 2000, Dr. Shormann created the DIVE into Math series to provide daily instruction for the students in his weekly co-op classes. Shortly thereafter, Saxon Publishers offered Dr. Shormann a job to create a secular version of DIVE. The offer was declined due to the restrictions on selling our DIVE CDs with Christian content. In 2004, Saxon Publishers was purchased by Harcourt Achieve. A year later Harcourt Achieve released Saxon Teacher, a whiteboard lecture very similar to the DIVE into Math courses. Following is our opinion of the differences between the two products.

DIVE

Saxon Teacher

Teaches from a Biblical Worldview, Scripture is used to inspire godly character.

A secular curriculum owned by Houghton Miflin Harcourt (owned by Irish company, Riverdeep)

Dr. Shormann teaches 3-5 practice problems, reviewing previous concepts and connecting them to new ones.

Reads the exact lessons in the book which do not include connections to previous concepts, lessons can appear disorganized or confusing

Students work interactively, taking notes and working problems with Dr. Shormann. Dr. Shormann teaches different practice problems than the Saxon lesson, providing extra practice on new concepts. This is not confusing since the book should not be open during the lecture.

No additional practice problems

All the lectures are in 1 file, making it easy to re-learn previous concepts instead of seeing the answer. This builds retention and fluency, making math easier. A quick reminder is usually all that is needed. The Saxon solutions manual in the kit provides step-by-step solutions, if needed.

Saxon Teacher is a multi-disk program, which makes it difficult to go back and review previous lessons. Students typically just watch the solution. Each time they do this, they lose the opportunity to build rentention and fluency, making math harder.

A Q&A email service with Dr. Shormann, is included with each course. Questions are answered by Dr. Shormann within one business day. Dr. Shormann has taught Saxon Math and Saxon Physics courses since 1997.

Support provided by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt employees. Experience level may vary.

This curriculum was published by Houghton Mifflin, not John Saxon. Saxon was a firm believer in the integration of geometry and algebra because it makes geometry easier to learn and raises college entrance exam scores. Saxon’s original Algebra 2, 3rd edition and Advanced Math, 2nd edition have all the geometry required for a high school geometry course while providing excellent preparation for the PSAT, SAT, and ACT. This course is only recommened in rare circumstances. Read more about the new HMH editions of Saxon on the opposite page. Read more about

NEW SAXON 4TH EDITIONS

ARE THEY WORTHY OF THE SAXON NAME? John Saxon died in 1996. In 200Saxon Publishers was sold to Harcourt Achieve Incorporated. In 2007 Houghton Mifflin Publishers purchased Harcourt, acquiring Saxon in the process. Recently, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (HMH) released their newly revised 4th editions of Saxon Algebra 1 and 2 as well as a Geometry text. But are these new editions worthy of the Saxon name? Or do they go against the very principles on which John founded Saxon Publishers? John Saxon was an Air Force test pilot with three engineering degrees. After retiring, he began teaching algebra at the local junior college. Appalled at the skills his students possessed, Saxon began writing lessons to bring his students up to speed. His methodology produced great results so he wrote and published his first algebra book in 1981. When he died in 1996, Saxon Publishers annual sales were at $27 million. Math is the language of science. Just like learning a language, the original Saxon curriculum begins with the fundamentals and provides students ample time to practice these before gently introducing more advanced material. John Saxon created a unique system of

incremental development (small bite-sized lessons), continual review and assessment, and the integration of geometry and algebra. Researchers have found these common-sense methods increase long-term retention and recall speed, thereby improving standardized test scores. More importantly, students are able to use these skills and apply them to new situations, like science.

 

John Saxon’s systematic integration of algebra and geometry is essentially gone. The European and Asian countries that consistently outperform the United States on international math exams integrate the teaching of algebra and geometry. A student who is learning algebra and geometry together will understand all math better , enabling them to apply math in science and engineering fields. These students will also generally outperform their peers on college admissions exams because algebra and geometry are tested on these exams.

The new editions of published by HMH significantly reduce the amount of review over previously learned concepts. The lessons do no not make the proper connections between the incremental concepts, making the lessons appear disorganized and confusing. The most disappointing change found in the new editions is that

Since Saxon Publishers was first sold in 2004, I’ve feared that any new editions might lose their original methodology that strives to teach mathematics like the language of science that it is. I have often prayed that if that happens, Lord willing, I would be able to stand on the shoulders of giants like John Saxon, Leonard Euler, Isaac Newton, Euclid, and others to build an even better math curriculum. These new editions confirm that time has come. Coming soon from DIVE: Shormann Math.

Do I Need a Separate Geometry Course?

Like the European and Asian countries that outperform the US on national math exams, Saxon integrates the teaching of algebra and geometry. This makes geometry easier to understand, increases long-term retention, and raises college entrance exam scores.

Course Algebra 2 Advanced Math

High School Credits 1 Algebra 2 1/2 Geometry 1 Precaluclus 1/2 Geometry

One-half credit of geometry is earned in Algebra 2 and one-half credit is earned in the first 40 lessons of Advanced Math. Between these two texts, all the geometry required on the PSAT, SAT, and ACT are taught. Therefore it is redundant and unneccessary to take a separate year of geometry.

Why Take Calculus in High School?

by Dr. Shormann

Many students can finish calculus in high school. Setting a high standard for your homeschool will increase the risk of failure. But, shouldn’t we be training our kids to try hard, and possibly fail, than to set a low standard? How will they know what they are capable of if we simply plan their K-12 curriculum based on government school standards, which never include calculus? In the following paragraphs, Dr. Shormann presents some thoughts on why Christian home schools around the world should plan to complete calculus in high school.

What is calculus? Answer this question: If you drove 60 miles in one hour, how fast were you going? If you answered “60 miles per hour”, then congratulations, you just did calculus! Calculus is nothing more than a tool for studying rates of change. And rate stems from the word ratio, or fraction, so calculus can even be thought of as a study of fractions. Rates of change in position, speed, temperature, volume, etc. can all be studied with calculus.

Why is it important to know calculus? Understand History Calculus began with the ancient Greeks, but their cyclical view of time caused their progress to stagnate. Because their worldview was flawed, they were not able to grasp the reality of infinity. But Christians know from Scripture that God is infinite (eternal). It is no surprise then, that in the 1600’s, Newton and Leibniz (both Christians) discovered calculus. For the next 300 years, practically every development in science and mathematics was connected with calculus. The discovery of calculus is a powerful lesson that worldview matters! Enjoy Life Understanding how things move and change, from motion pictures to engine pistons, has been one of the most intellectually satisfying experiences in my life. The fundamental idea of change is at the basis of our whole perception of phenomena. Life is full of change and predictable patterns of change. Jesus said that He came to give us an abundant life (John 10:10), and the study of calculus allows us to enjoy God and his works in a more abundant way. Know God It helps us understand the Trinity One of the biggest differences between Christianity and other religions is the theme of

unity and diversity. Some religions have one god, and others have many gods, but the only true God is both one and many. He is our Father, Son and Holy Spirit, a triune God. God’s invisible attributes have been clearly seen by humans from the beginning (Romans 1:20). The attribute of unity and diversity is quite visible. Tides would cease without the sun and moon, dolphins would starve without their sonar, and calculation of speed would be impossible without a measure of time elapsed. One cannot study calculus for long without noticing that unity and diversity abounds, and realizing this will help a student understand that a biblically-based math and science education makes the world so much easier to figure out!

Why complete calculus in high school? Easier Than You Think What usually intimidates most students is the whole host of strange symbols like ∂y/∂x and ∫, and confusing words like function, limit and continuity. However, with a little patience and perseverance, coupled with skill in working with fractions and basic algebra, students will find that difficult things readily become easy things. A Liberal Education Not that kind of liberal, the “free to think,” “free to pursue” kind! Up to 80% of undergraduate degrees offered at 4-year universities require at least one semester of calculus. Calculus knowledge frees a child up to pursue any college degree. But, calculus should not be considered just by the college crowd. The problem solving skills and understanding of God’s creation that naturally flow from a study of calculus are invaluable to anyone who loves the Lord and loves to learn. A Liberal Education Many children are capable of completing calculus in high school, and it is up to parents to provide the love, encouragement and godly counsel that will motivate them to succeed. Parents must teach their children well, demand excellence, and set high standards, remembering also that knowledge puffs up, but love builds up(I Cor. 8:1), and that God considers as “nothing” those with lots of knowledge but little love (I Cor. 13:1-3). All parents want their children to have a better education, better job, and a better understanding of His Word and His works than they had, and planning for your children to finish calculus in high school will help them succeed. Humble application of this great knowledge will result in a child who is better prepared for restoring His kingdom on Earth, as it is in Heaven.

Audio Adventure

Based on the true story of Dr. Shormann’s research expeditions to a powerful volcano in the remote Alaskan wilderness!

On June 6, 1912, the biggest eruption in over 100 years occurred in what is now Katmai National Park, and The Valley of Ten Thousand Smokes in Alaska. Ejecting over 30 times more material than Mount St. Helen’s, Novarupta exploded for more than 60 hours. Catastrophic processes consistent with Biblical history are clearly revealed in the story of Novarupta. The volcano deposited ash and tephra at rates exceeding 10 feet per hour, dropped worldwide temperatures up to 2 °F, caused large parts of mountains to disappear in the blink of an eye, plus a host of other cataclysmic events. Novarupta provides many challenges to the uniformitarian assumption that normal everyday processes are responsible for Earth’s surface features. It is a powerful testimony to the young and active planet we live on, a planet shaped by the hand of God as revealed in Scripture.

“We just completed the CLEP

16 points to spare! Thank you Dr. Shormann for your great CDs. We have used them for all Nick’s HS Maths, Biology, Chemistry and Physics with great success. We recommend these to all users out there. As always, Dr. S., you have done a great job!” Peter S.

*This is the typical number of credits awarded. However, each college determines how much crediit is awarded and the course the credit is applied to.

HOW DOES IT WORK? DIAGNOSTIC TEST Each CLEP Professor title has a diagnostic test that determines which of the 20 lessons to complete. VIDEO LECTURES Twenty video lectures teach every topic on the corresponding CLEP or AP Exam. Students work interactively, taking notes and working problems along with Dr. Shormann.

What are CLEP and AP Exams? CLEP and AP exams, administered by the College Board and accepted by over 2900 colleges and universities nationwide, allow students to earn college credit by passing an exam instead of taking the college course.

What is the difference between CLEP and AP exams?

CLEP exams are amultiple choice and last 90 minutes. AP exams PRACTICE PROBLEMS WITH VIDEO SOLUTIONS To reinforce understanding, each lesson has 10-15 practice problems. have a 90-minute multiple choice section and a 90-minute free response section. Because AP exams are more rigorous, they are Video solutions are provided for each question. accepted by most colleges. COMPUTER BASED PRACTICE EXAMS After completing the prescribed lessons, take the first practice exam. Each question on the practice exam is referenced to the CLEP Professor lesson the topic was taught in, making it easy to re-learn missed concepts. Each title contains two or three practice exams.

TAKE THE CLEP OR AP EXAM While AP exams are only offered in the spring each year, CLEP exams can be taken anytime at your local university or community college. You do not have to be enrolled in college nor are there any age requirements. However, a picture ID is required. EXAM SCORES HELD BY THE COLLEGE BOARD Exam scores are stored at The College Board. Upon request, exam scores are sent to prospective colleges. Colleges determine the number of credits awarded for each exam. FREE Q&A EMAIL SERVICE Dr. Shormann will personally answer any questions about your course via email..

When and where can I take CLEP and AP exams? AP exams are only administered once a year, usually in May. We recommend talking to your local Christian or public school in the fall to register. CLEP exams can be taken anytime at your local community college or university testing center.

Which exams will my college accept? Visit www.collegeboard.com and click on the CLEP or AP link. Since most students don’t know which college they will attend until their senior year, we recommend taking each CLEP or AP exam after completing the corresponding high school course and CLEP Professor course. Even if your college doesn’t award credit, good scores on these exams make your college admissions and scholarship application more competitive.
