  1. Is there an online class for honors level Algebra 2 that is not an AOPS class? My older son connected well with AOPS, but my younger one hasn't. He's currently in an in-person Geometry class (not honors) and is bored senseless. He really needs an honors level class, but there are no in-person honors options for homeschoolers in my city. We are looking ahead to next year and want to find an online option. He is not autodidactic and needs an interactive class. Recommendations? (If AOPS really is the best option, we can try it again. He would need some hand-holding because he has an incr
  2. DD (3.5 y.o.) adores "writing" and "drawing." She has filled up every page of multiple notebooks and hoards pencils and paper. Now she is beginning to copy letters regularly, and I want to help her develop good habits. (Her pencil grip is fine, but she uses poor techniques for letter formation.) What do you recommend for a young child? We will go very slowly, and I want to find something with fairly large letters since she's young. HWOT? Something else? TIA! This so totally new for me. My older children hated writing/coloring/fine motor practice when they were young.
  3. My rising 7th grader does not have a strong vocabulary. I would like to use a program this year to improve his vocabulary, and I think something focusing on roots may be the best as far as retention and generalization of what he learns. (I'm very open to hearing other opinions about this strategy if focusing on roots isn't what you would recommend for him.) Bonus if it's fun and won't feel tedious. Recommendations?
  4. This is very helpful. It is possible ds will do an online AP Chemistry this year. It sounds like CTY is a good option for that class. Do you know whether there are other AP Chem classes of comparable quality?
  5. I don't know much about the Purdue class. These are the textbooks used in the class ds took: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1107177901/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/193642004X/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  6. It was at a brick-and-mortar school for advanced learners. I haven't homeschooled him for the past 4 years but am considering it again because of the Covid situation.
  7. The Linear Algebra course was based on the Linear Algebra class taught at Purdue U - using the same textbook, test, etc. I assume it was complete. They finished all the topics in the course/text. Thanks for the suggestions of AOPS.
  8. He completed both Multivariable Calculus and Linear Algebra. They were separate math subjects but he completed both at his B&M school this year. He has not taken stats or number theory (at least nothing with that title). He took a "Math Analysis" class a few years ago that may have had some of that content. We are considering AP Stats this year because it is an easy class to find. He hasn't taken Differential Equations or Discrete Math yet either. If you can recommend a specific Number Theory, Differential Equations, or Discrete Math class, I'm all ears. TIA!
  9. Thank you! It's been quite a journey, but it's nice to be here again!
  10. Ds15 was homeschooled years ago but has been in private school for a few years. Given the current circumstances, we may not enroll him in the fall. I'm starting to explore option for a Plan B. Math and science are often hard to find a good fit because he is radically accelerated in both. He completed Multivariable Calculus and Linear Algebra this year. Any thoughts about math options for next year? He's been taking advanced high school science classes for several years but has not had chemistry, and we've talked about possibly AP Chemistry for next year. I do not have the ability to lea

  12. Hi, Everyone! Life has taken some unexpected turns, and I've been away from this board for about 3 years. I'm ready to return. Can someone tell me how to edit my signature? I don't see the option in editing my profile. Thanks! Looking forward to seeing you around the boards!
  13. I did their help desk through chat--very professional and courteous. They said that it is "escalating to a Level 2," and they scheduled an appointment for help over the phone this weekend. *Really* hoping that my messages can be recovered and confidence restored. I've had this email address for a long time, and it will be quite a process to change my primary email--but I will, if necessary. It does seem odd that this isn't a system-wide problem. Not sure whether to be hopeful about that or not.
