A friend of mine recommended that I fill out a list of topics covered in each text book as we finish it for my daughter's transcripts. It seems over and above to me, but apparently some __colleges__ require this. It is good to listen to the advice of those who have been there and done that. My daughter is finishing the last lesson of algebra 1. Here are the topics covered in her textbook. She used Math U See copyright 2009.
