  1. I would very much appreciate recommendations for really good online honors or AP Physics classes for a STEM student. I am especially interested in providers that do not have a lot of 'busy work' associated with their courses. Thanks!
  2. I would love to hear back from others who have signed up with Kolbe Academy for high school classes or who have used Kolbe in the past. I signed up my student for one of their science courses. Before classes have even started, we are having a lot of time-consuming issues with wrong and conflicting information being sent out, random messages being sent to my student from random people who don't bother to introduce themselves, very slow tech support from folks who don't always seem to know what they are doing, etc. We are paying a ton of $$ for the course and I have a sinking feeling about the year that hasn't even started yet. If anyone has any good suggestions and/or can tell me that things will improve I'd love to hear from you.
  3. I would appreciate any reviews of Kolbe Academy science classes for high school. I have a STEM student and I'm looking for rigor. Thanks.
  4. We opted in to Great Courses Plus a couple of months ago when they offered 50% off an annual subscription. We own quite a few courses on DVD but jumped at the opportunity to have access to such a vast number at any time. Our library system offers a number of Great Courses on DVD but we strongly prefer being on our schedule (versus on the library system's schedule) and literally having access to any course we want anywhere we want.
  5. New net neutrality regulations have NOT gone into effect, nor does anyone know what the real effect on anyone is going to be yet. ISPs have NOT taken any measures yet, so anyone using the changed rules as an excuse for something or other is simply not acting on facts but on rumors, innuendos, speculation, erroneous interpretations, etc. The following article is relatively apolitical and does a good job, IMHO, of trying to separate fact from fiction/speculation. https://techcrunch.com/2017/12/14/the-fcc-just-repealed-net-neutrality-what-happens-next/

  13. Mrs. Up plans to return to teaching WTMA Biology for the school year 2018-19. HTH!
  14. Since the instructor is new to WTMA and so is the instructor for Physics, it seems that it would have made more sense to assign them to courses more in line with their education. Why have someone with a PhD in Physics teach Biology, and someone with a background in Botany and Entomology and Conservation teach physics? High school physics is and should be a focused course, and I personally wouldn't be comfortable having my student (who plans to major in Engineering or Physics) take the physics course with WTMA, at least not with the current lineup. It would make sense, for those of you who have students signed up for Biology, to ask if the instructor will have the same format and materials as last year or if she's going to totally revamp the course. I do know that Memoria Press also offers online Biology using the same Holt text used last year for WTMA, and I understand it's a very good course. In case you're looking for options! I would also inquire about refunds. Given the rather sudden changes and the fact that the instructor DOES matter for many, I would hope they will have a more lenient refund policy.
