What Should We Do After We Finish Dimensions Math 8B?
So your student is nearly finished with Singapore Math Dimensions Math 8B.
According to the publisher (Singapore Math), a student who has completed Dimensions Math 8B:
- “Should be able to do either a second-year Algebra textbook (Algebra 2)
- Or a Geometry textbook at the high school level.
- A bright homeschooled student could potentially do a college level Intermediate Algebra or possibly a Pre-Calculus text since there is so much repetition between different levels of college texts. However, not all geometry topics generally expected for high school and formal geometric proofs have not been covered.
Here’s what is available at Lamp Post Homeschool after Singapore Math® Dimensions Math 8B:
- If you want to go with Saxon, the Algebra 2 Third Edition includes some geometry
- Or you can choose to start with their stand-alone geometry.
- Saxon Algebra 2 and Geometry are secular-based.
