  1. Hello! I have done an extensive search online and cannot find any samples from Foerster's Algebra I textbook. If anyone can help me with a link (or selected pages copied from your own book), it would be greatly appreciated. TIA, Pamela
  2. I am trying to help a parent complete a transcript for her ds. He attended a private high school here in VA, but did not pass English 11 or 12. He was not allowed to return. I tutored him in both those subjects, he passed them, and he now needs a transcript to continue at the community college. I have listed two options below but would really like your input or other ideas. 1) Present a FULL transcript with the courses and grades from the private school and my two courses. The private school courses would be identified and then it would be noted that the official transcript is requested f
  3. Thanks everyone for the quick responses! They are pretty much what I advised her, but I just wanted confirmation before proceeding (just in case there was a "loophole" I didn't consider...and there's not...). Pamela
  4. I am trying to help another hs mom with the transcript and her daughter has a D from French 101 at the local CC. Since this is just an elective, is it possible just to omit it from the transcript? Also, it is possible they will hire a private tutor for French for the rest of this year. Would it be "legal" to include that course on her transcript? Along the same lines, if she withdraws from a CC course, does that have to be included on the transcript? THANKS in advance! Pamela
  5. Hello! Dropping back in after a long absence (my own have graduated)... I am tutoring a student and we are reading The Count of Monte Cristo. I am reading the unabridged version (because it is so much richer), but he is reading the Bantam Classic unabridged version. Has anyone ever matched up the chapters of these two? It would be helpful in my planning to know ahead of time. I have never read the unabridged version and don't want to "peek" ahead so I thought I'd ask here first before resorting to all night reading sessions. LOL! Thanks so much! Pamela in VA
  6. Hmmm...I'm wondering if the lack of response to my inquiry is a bad sign about this curriuclum :confused1:
  7. It's been a while since I've posted anything here since my children are both in college now (ds-junior, dd-sophomore), but this has always been my go-to forum for great advice, experience, and opinions. I will be tutoring a freshman who is supposed to be starting Algebra I with Shormann Math. His mom gave me access to the account and I have spent the last 3-4 days becoming familiar with the program. I have read the documentation of its success if the program is followed EXACTLY AS WRITTEN. I have reservations about using the program for a number of reasons and hope to get input from those
  8. I am interested in seeing samples of World of Chemistry by Zumdahl, but can't seem to find any on the web. Also, Amazon has several versions - can someone point me in the right direction for an honors (not AP) level course? We will use either it or the BJU text with the DIVE CD. THANKS!
