  1. Ok, so on hindsight would you have preferred moving from MM7 to DO Algebra 1 instead of Foerster’s?
  2. Did your son do well with DO Geometry? There are a lot of mixed reviews and my kids’ own experiences are quite mixed too.
  3. Thank you so much for sharing your experience. No, I’ve never tried Foerster’s but alive read some good reviews. My older kids have had different experiences with DO. My son did very well in DO Geometry to Precalculus and is now second year software engineering at Penn State. My daughter did well in DO Algebra 1 and really struggled with DO Geometry and needed live help so switched to MyHomeschoolMathClass for Algebra 2 and did very well. She’ll likely return to DO for Pre-Calculus though because it might not be offered live next year. However, my question for my youngest dd (who likes math and does well in it) is because I don’t know what the best transition is from MM7 and if there is any advantage to Foerster’s to DO (since MM recommends it). Also, I don’t know how to assess her readiness to transition from me as a teacher to asynchronous online classes as a younger Algebra student, if that makes sense.
  4. My daughter is starting Algebra 1 in 7th, so my concern is that has not had any video or online instruction yet (though her older siblings have). Any experiences (good or bad) with the above after MM7? My three options are: I teach her Foerster’s Algebra 1, she does Foerster’s with Math without Borders videos, or Derek Owens? (Note: I did post this both in high school and middle school forums because the question applies to both groups). Thanks

  6. Would you mind PM’ing me some names of the more available ones she liked to give us a starting point? Thanks.
  7. I’m considering it for my 6th grader. Is it too late to get good teachers scheduled if I join now? Also, how do you try teachers and find one you like? (Don’t quite understand how that works).
  8. After she finishes MM 7, dd will go on to Foerster’s Algebra 1. Should I purchase the old 1999 edition or the newer one? What’s the difference between them? Also, if you’ve used Foerster’s, how many problems did you assign in each chapter? All the odds or evens? Thanks in advance 😊
  9. Is community college Precalculus different than high school Precalculus? I mean is t taken after high school Precalculus or instead of? And what online AP Statistics class do you all recommend?
  10. My dd, now in 10th grade, wants to major in English. She’ll do Precalculus in 11th. What should she do in 12th? Is there a point in her taking AP Calculus? (Note that she’ll already be doing AP English). So what other DE or AP can she take that would count toward her general education math requirement in college?
  11. I second Erica Meltzer’s SAT prep books.
  12. I’ve been searching for a simple homeschooling planner for each of my kids but can’t find what I’m looking for. First of all, I want a 2 page weekly spread with weekdays on top and subjects on the left (like Well-Planned Day). BUT I don’t want the weekdays written (I live abroad and our week starts Sundays). I also prefer to write in the subjects myself. Any ideas? Thanks!
  13. Can you suggest which literature guides for individual books are good?
