  1. It would not be a science post without daijobu sharing her great infinite wisdom. Thank you 🙂 Did your child take 1 and 2 in the span of a year? Or did you do it over 2 years?
  2. Is there a curriculum that combines history/literature together through HS? We already do IEW for writing, but want to do more literature this year. I want to combine it with history, preferably US history at his request. He is a STEM kid, so want to make this fun but also help him become more well-rounded.
  3. I have searched, and looked through the physics thread but still have questions. I was hoping to find a synchronous AP physics class, but no luck so far. Any suggestions would be appreciated. If not, I am assuming my options come down to Derek Owens or PAH. Anyone take either over this past year that could share their experience with the course?
  4. Just so difficult to find synchronous classes. We found 1 options for AP calculus next year that has live classes, but nothing for any of the other AP classes we are interested in.
  5. Did he take both in the spring, or did he do one in the spring and one if the fall? Curious about the timing of the classes and the tests.
  6. Here is one more option. https://www.flvs.net/flex/courses?source=AP . I can't speak from experience, but have heard that FLVS in general can be a lot of busy work. We are thinking of giving it a try, but are on the fence.
  7. Can anyone who applied to the college board and received approval for an AP CS A or AP CS principles share their syllabus? Please and thank you! PS: how long did it take for them to approve it after submission?
  8. Do you think AP chemistry and AP calculus in the same year is too much?
  9. Can I bump this thread about updates or any other thoughts looking back?
  10. What is the secret to getting your DS to read ALL these books in a summer. Please share - I am lucky if I get through a quarter of this!
  11. Exactly opposite for my STEM inclided one. We had an amazing experience with IEW. We tried BW, which neither he or I liked. IEW is very heavily teacher dependent, I agree. We have done their courses online, and through our local HS co-op. We are going back online as that experience was very different. IEW gave my kiddo structure and confidence, which for us was invaluable.
  12. I think geometry is just a different type of math than algebra based math. We had to change our expectations - we probably spent the most time doing homework in that class of all the AOPS classes we have taken. I'm not sure there is anything we could have done honestly to prepare. Apparently there are a lot of B&M kids who take AOPS geometry b/c they struggle with it or want to get a head start. Good luck to you daughter.
  13. Arcadia: can you share how much physics he had taken before to be doing Physics C? Did he do 1&2 before? Did you do an AP class to prepare for this?
