I am wondering which would be more beneficial to do with my son next year, or whether to do both.
This year we are doing Apologia Biology and he has a solid A on the tests, and stays on task easily, but we didn't get to do Physical Science due to finances/ I about died (so I didn't add science test/ notebooking that year). He completed the General Science/ BF History of Science/ read Abeka's Physical Science and BJU Earth Science books in middle school (but it was for pure enjoyment-no testing), so I was wondering if we should step back and do that this year before moving forward to Chemistry. I was thinking that he could go at the pace of one lesson a week- and then go forward onto Wiles Chemistry for the 2nd two trimesters. What would you do? We plan on do Chemistry, Physics, and the Human Body before he goes off to college. I also don't care to double up on sciences in later years, as he is a strong student and this is what I did in HS.
We will be doing the following:
Ancient History and Literature and Bible:
MFW AHL with Easy Grammar and SAT vocabulary cards
Algebra 2 and Geometry: I don't care if he finishes these in one year or a year and a half
Doliciani Book 2 and Jurgenson and Brown Geometry with Khan Academy for fun
Total Health/ CPR/ First Aid class
Fallacy Detective / Thinking Toolbox/ Critical Thinking Co. Building Thinking Skills 3- Verbal
Undecided- leaning toward Wiles Chemistry, but would love to do both Physical and Chemistry with him..
Reading tons of classics, as he is a strong reader.
P.S. I just feel bad missing one of Wiles programs, when we just love them all-lol.
eta: I got all but the BF History of Science for free from a school that shut down, but they didn't come with manuals/ solutions/ tests- just the books.
