  1. Definitely the first option. I second the above posts. :P
  2. There's a great app that I'm using called Remember Me that is specifically made to help you memorize Scripture. There's a version for smart devices and they also have a website here: http://www.remem.me/ I'd have to agree with Bluegoat. I'm in HS and I pick all the verses I want to do, but I started doing it independently. What's a fun challenge for me (that I'm working on atm) is memorizing a whole chapter. Romans 8 is fabulous and so I'm starting with that. Maybe your kids could race to see who memorizes a verse or passage first?
  3. I'm sorry I saw this answer so late! I'm taking HSLDA online classes for the first time this year, and I like them a lot. Mrs. Cockerham is my favorite teacher, actually. I enjoyed the Biblical perspectives in an AP level class. However, my family is a relatively new homeschool family (This is our 4th year), and I've never taken AP classes before. So I don't have anything to compare them to. In my experience, though, they are great and I don't hesitate to recommend them! Do you have any specific questions about them?
  4. I did Alg 1 and 2, and Geometry from a different curriculum in between. I'm currently taking AP Stat. I got a 28 on ACT math, which is a little better than I expected. As for topics they're covering that I haven't seen covered...hmm. I can't think of topic names off the top of my head, but graphing comes to mind. I don't see as much graphing in Saxon Alg. I don't plan on going into any sort of math-related field :P Thanks everyone!
  5. Thanks everyone! I'm planning on a gap year and I've heard it's better to apply a year from now (if this is a bad idea, please correct me).
  6. This is kind of a misleading question, as I am definitely retaking it (I've only taken it once). My question is, to what extent will retaking it help? I got a 31 but I hadn't studied many topics. I mostly reviewed timing strategies and took one practice test. This score is good enough to get into the colleges I like, but they are close to the average freshman score. I do know that I can do better if I study the trickier topics, but I've got a lot to do and I don't know how much time I can spend studying for the test. It would be worth it though, if I could get merit aid because of a higher score. My target score for the retake is 33. Could an additional 2 points in an ACT score give me a greater advantage in obtaining scholarships and merit aid? Thank you, and I'm sorry if this post was jumbled.
  7. Would you consider Saxon at a lower level than other math programs? I'm just wondering because I've done Saxon Alg 1 & 2 and I have friends in public school doing similar level math but they cover many concepts I've never covered or even heard of. I just want to know where Saxon stands in the world of math books :P I want to know because I may have to do a little extra math prep before college (It's senior year for me). Thank you very much!
  8. I have, and it's amazing! The only problem is, I talked to a lady who manages our homeschool umbrella, and they can't count it as high school credit. We will definitely use it as a supplement though
  9. I looked over it a little and it looks good! We want to compare a few, so I'm definitely adding it to the list. Thank you!
  10. Oh awesome! It's only been a week so far, but I can tell she's very good. I like the way the class is structured too.
  11. I'm sorry I haven't replied to the thread in a while. But I ended up doing AP Stats with PA Homeschoolers. I considered self-study, but it works out better for my family to do an actual class. Thank you all for the help and advice!
  12. I'm looking for a Spanish 1 curriculum for a younger sibling. We need books that are more suited towards self-teaching, and we'd like DVDs/CDs to help with pronunciation. We're also under a budget (We were going to get the ACE PACE Spanish 1 Set but the DVDs alone cost almost $300). Under $200 dollars is ideal, but if there is a very good curriculum, we'd consider going higher. What would you recommend as a good curriculum? Thank you so much!
  13. Do you know how difficult/time-consuming AP stats would be? I'm doing two other AP classes this year as well, and I just don't want to load too much on myself. I'm definitely not a math person as well, so it may be a little harder for me.
