Thanks for the e-mail. Even though I’m a few years away from high school yet I know it will come before I know it. I don’t know if you can offer any help but I thought I’d ask any way.

There are videos of an enthusiastic math professor to go with each lesson. It also includes exercises and tests. I can't say enough good things about this program. It is a year long subscription and can be purchased several times per year on Homeschool Buyer Co-op for half price. After you buy the subscription the year doesn't start until you sign on for the first time.
