Unless your child is excellent at understanding math or you feel fully competent to instruct them at home, I recommend one of the following:

Full kit, including DVDs with self-grading program and completely worked out problems. Cost is about $150 (includes CDs, student textbook and answer key).   The set allows for more in-depth explanations of mathematical concepts when not in class.  If your student is good at understanding math and good at self-teaching, then this CD would not be as necessary.
