What path do you suggest for Algebra, Geometry and Advanced Math? Which editions should I use?

Here are some recommended routes when it comes to Algebra and Geometry.

Route ARoute BRoute C
Algebra 1 (3rd edition)
Algebra 2 (3rd edition)
Advanced Mathematics (2nd edition)
Algebra 1 (3rd edition)
Algebra 2 (3rd edition)
Geometry (1st edition)

Advanced Mathematics (2nd edition)
Algebra 1 (4th edition)
Algebra 2 (4th edition)
Geometry (1st edition)
Advanced Mathematics (2nd edition)
This route has geometry woven into the above three textbooks with half of it being taught in Advanced Mathematics (which covers geometry, trigonometry, and precalculus.) This is enough geometry to complete your geometry requirement, but not enough to show a high level of mastery in the subject.

In this route, you would skip over the geometry chapters in Algebra 1, Algebra 2, and Advanced Mathematics. You would dedicate a year just to the Geometry textbook which prepares students taking standardized testing for college.

This route already has the geometry removed from the Algebra books. However, the algebra textbooks are written by the publisher (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt) and some say it lacks the feel of the earlier Saxon textbooks. In Advanced Mathematics, you would skip over the geometry lessons. This route is considered the most rigorous.

My recommendation is to find out the graduation requirements for your state.

Also consider whether your child is higher education bound and research the desired courses in math needed for admittance.
