  1. I know there are so many posts about accreditation and they've been very helpful. We were going the unaccredited route (why should I pay someone a lot of money to keep track of something that I could do on my own)....until we started looking into colleges with my dd who is finishing her junior year of high school. I have found that the private colleges do not have any problems with a homeschooled student with an unaccredited transcript. But the public colleges (University of Georgia and Auburn) look at me funny when I ask the admissions about unaccredited transcripts. I'm not worried ab

  3. It's too bad they didn't include the answers with the workbook (without having to spend another $30!). And I looked at a sample of the Test Bank - it's a shame they include the answers right with the problems so you have to copy your own test. Don't they know we're busy homeschool moms that don't have time to copy math problems for a test? :tongue_smilie: Thanks for your helpful input!
  4. Perhaps this needs to be a new thread? Matroyska and WishboneDawn - which books did you purchase for Discovering Mathematics? Student text, teacher text, workbook? Is the workbook supplemental or necessary in your opinion? Does the teacher book add value? I'm ready to try DM for next year!
  5. Thanks for all the responses! It seems that DM is more broad-scoped and covers more than just algebra where AoPS is more topic focused (i.e. a separate book for Algebra, Geometry, etc.). To those that have used both, do you think a year of DM is enough pre-algebra to move into AoPS?
  6. My 6th grade dd has finished Singapore 6B and I'm trying to decide where to go from here. We've used Singapore exclusively since 1st grade and she's done very well with the curriculum. What are others doing after Singapore? What are some things I should be considering when making a decision? Thanks for your advice!:)
  7. We started using CE2 for my 6th grader this year. My dd came up with her own game called "Weekly Word Nut" where she picks a vocabulary word and uses it all week in her writing (school and non-school related) and conversation. Last week, her word was "ostentatious" and I doubt our family will forget what that word means b/c it was used so often. I realize it's only one new word a week, but I thought it was a clever idea.
  8. Hello- I'm researching the MCT Language Arts curriculum for my 6th grader and came across the "Self-Evident Truth Series" which are studies of famous speeches in history (Declaration of Independence, Gettysburg Address...). It looked interesting so I read on and discovered that the most recent speech added was Barack Obama's speech on race that basically puts his speech on up there with Abe Lincoln's and Jefferson's. Not that I'm afraid to analyze speeches and learn about them, I am afraid of the potential slant a curriclum's author might put on something so recently spoken. This may be
  9. My 3rd grade dd is using WWE and FLL3 but I feel she needs some extra practice with the grammar exercises. I'm looking for something she can do on her own that supplements what we do in FLL together (such as diagramming sentences or labelling parts of speech, etc.). Any suggestions? There's a lot out there! Thanks!
