There are three textbooks on the site:

A) The blue Holt California Mathematics Course 1 which my student used in 6th grade math.

B) The green Holt California Mathematics Course 2 which my 7th grader is now using in Pre-Algebra Advanced.

C) The red Holt California Algebra 1 text.

TWO QUESTIONS FOR PARENTS OF 8TH GRADERS:

1) Does PAUSD stay with the Holt McDougal line for 8th grade? Do 8th grade Algebra 1A students use the red Holt California Algebra 1 text?

My math is rusty and the farther along the advanced math lane my student goes, I fear the less I can assist with math homework. I'd like to start studying a bit ahead of this child so that I can refresh those algebra skills and it makes sense to me to utilize the book that this kids will actually use next year. Is the red Holt California Algebra 1 text the right one?

2) How does one find a good math tutor for the advanced math track? Any recommendations?

I stopped at basic not-for-science-majors calculus in college, and, believe me, I don't remember anything except the word "derivative". How/who should we find to help us at the 8th grade and high school levels?
