Mathematics A Human Endeavor Curriculum By Harold Jacobs
It's a liberal arts math course that is used by homeschool students. Some customers use it for junior high students who advanced but don't want to start
the typical algebra and geometry track yet. Others use it for an alternate high school math course.
Unfortunately, the publisher is not reprinting these at this time. We have
limited stock.
Mathematics A Human Endeavor, Third Edition (1994), was written By Harold R. Jacobs who also wrote Elementary Algebra and Geometry, Seeing, Doing, and Understanding.
The introduction states that it is a high school and college introductory math course. Originally published in 1970, Mathematics A Human Endeavor has
exciting topics and a clear, friendly style. Cartoons, comic strips, photos, and drawings help make math interesting and illustrate concepts. It explores many
math topics outside those covered in algebra and geometry. Don't let "college level" scare you. Liberal arts math course means that it was written for nonmath majors.

If your student is a math whiz, don't let "nonmath major" discourage you. Math Human Endeavor covers useful math topics that are off the beaten track. When I was a science major in college, the required math courses were trigonometry, analytical geometry, calculus 1 and 2. I discovered another world of math when I switched my major to finance and business. Many of the chapters in this textbook cover the "other math" I was required to learn for my new major. Taking Mathematics Human Endeavor during high school would have helped me in the business math courses.

If your student has difficulty copying problems correctly or if copying problems increases the frustration level, I would recommend the
Math: A Human Endeavor Student Workbook. It is a well thought out because the publishers listened to suggestions from users of the textbook when they created this workbook.
The consumable student workbook is "designed as a complement to the textbook" and includes the exercises from the book with space to work the problems. The student doesn't have to copy them),
 Graph paper for the student (about 40 pages),
 Supplemental exercises with answers,
 Exercises to reinforce past lessons with answers, and
 Exercises for using the graphing calculator with lessons in the book with some of the answers.
