I'm looking for some feedback about a textbook series "Big Idea Math - Algebra 1" authors Ron Larson and Laurie Boswell. Our district is contemplating buying it and I must say it looks promising... but it is so new that I haven’t seen a review of the series that is either positive or negative.
If you have any knowledge of this series at all, please share your input. Who has taught through this series? Have you had a son or daughter who took the class? What do you think? Obviously, a new textbook series is a big commitment for any district, but especially so when $ is tight. So any and all input is welcome/appreciated :)
