  1. Older dd received AA from CC & WA state diploma simultaneously. She enrolled at UW as a junior at age 18 but opted to double major, add a minor and study abroad. Looking down the road at master's programs currently as she's finishing up senior year. She's in no hurry to leave academia, it would appear. ? Dd15 is full-time CC and working toward pre-Nursing AA. She will hopefully receive direct-admit to dream BSN program. If not, she'll apply as freshman to many nursing schools and see what happens. She's pursuing BSN and eventually DNP so she's in no hurry as well. I'm only familiar with the way WA and OR handle CC credits. I do know that east coast schools were not impressed with CC credits a few years ago when older dd was applying. They told us they preferred IB and AP. Hope that helps ?
  2. What a hoot to find this 'old' thread on top today. I'm convinced the combo of pre alg methods helped dd adequately prepare for her current algebra 1 class this year at her public school. She enjoys helping the students at her table and considers it her favorite class. I wish she had more practice problems to work on at home -- so I recently registered her for Alcumus. I almost have her talked in to working through some of aops intro to alg. Her teacher emailed me this week: "Abi is typically the student who jumps right into the problems and completes them before the rest of the class!" Thanks for reviving this thread. I love reading how everyone is doing these days. :)
  3. X-post from other college thread... It's been a while since I was active on the boards, which were a huge blessing to me when I took the homeschooling plunge 8 years ago. I read TWTM and felt compelled to give my dc a better education than they were receiving at private school. I could not have navigated this process without the veteran homeschool parents here and SWB's wisdom and practical advice. I was in way over my head. I depended on the ladies here for daily/weekly help and encouragement. I did not imagine the impact that classical homeschooling would have on my kids. Latin helped launch my older dd into the world of languages. She is passionate about Spanish and French and is looking at linguistics courses. I could go on about the benefits of TWTM. It radically changed our world. I'm so thankful. It still influences my decisions with younger dds. Not sure if this will encourage a younger mom who wonders if all the planning and sacrifice is worth it. It is. You are in good hands here. In terms of college news, dd is most likely choosing UW in Seattle. We visited last week. It is truly magical. Here is her list: UW UC Irvine Honors UCSD UCSC Seattle U -- Trustee Scholarship 4 years Sarah Lawrence (Waitlisted NYU) ETA: Pepperdine

  7. My girls begged me to let them watch part 1 of The Elegant Universe tonight on the iPad in bed. :001_smile: (YouTube)
  8. I love your idea of using the MUS videos as a supplement. Regarding Ben/CR... After spending a fair amount of time with him and his boys in Hawaii, I have a much better understanding of his personality and where he gets that 'vibe' that you mentioned. He has quite a backstory. I know he rubs some folks the wrong way. He's been 'playing math' with my girls via google chat. They enjoy him and his out-of-the-box thinking. Glad to hear others are learning from his methodology. I bought his blocks to make it easier for my girls to do math with him online. The MUS blocks & C-rods have received a lot of mileage around here over the last few months thanks to MUS, CR & Rosie. These manipulative-based programs can be used with other math materials. It's ok to mix & match. :)
  9. Dh (yesterday): "Abi, What math do you want to do with me today?" Dd9: "Life of Fred Advanced Algebra. It's my favorite book!"
  10. Me to dd9 this morning: "I have to take Aly to violin. Your math is downstairs on the table. The video is ready. Just hit play." She then watches the MUS alg video for lesson 25 (difference of squares) and yells upstairs, "Can I do as many lessons as I want? This is fun!" :001_smile:
