Will you please help me figure this out? I appreciate your time and advice.
DD 15 (9th grade) will complete AOPS Intro to Algebra in a few weeks (mid to late April). It's my understanding that she's covered everything for Algebra I now.
Question: Should she take AOPS Geometry when she finishes Intro to Algebra, or will she need the skills from Number Theory and Counting and Probability first? Should she take MUS Geometry or Khan at the same time she takes AOPS NT and CP?
Background: She has not taken any geometry or physics yet. She is working on Intro to Algebra with a tutor. She covered AOPS pre-algebra in just a few months. However, she took pre-algebra with MUS the year before (she decided MUS would not take her where she wants to go in math, so she re-did pre-algebra using AOPS). Her total time for both pre-algebra and Intro to Algebra combined for both will be 10 months when she completes the book in April. Still,I have read of 8th graders finishing algebra I and that concerns me as she may be behind.
She has not had any Algebra II or Geometry yet. (well, except for the few last chapters of Intro to Algebra which supposedly correlate to Algebra II)
She plans to take the PSAT/NMSQT in both 10th and 11th grades. She took the PSAT 8/9 without prep to get a baseline and her math score was only 560. At the time, she had only completed a few chapters of AOPS Intro to Algebra.
Her personal goals change every few months but she wants to go to college.
Do you have any advice or insight? Thank you.
