  5. Hi all, Thank you for your support!! I have learned so much. I have looked through the test prep book & realize you are all correct. My DS really needs geometry in order to improve his scores. And I think he could use the algebra break. I have ordered the MUS geometry so he can take a super quick spin through geometry & start algebra 2 in the fall. I am still not sure which algebra 2 course I will have him take but at least this will get him "caught up" and give him a break from algebra. This fall I will hunt again for an algebra 2 class, probably not MUS or Saxon, that quest will continue. Thanks again. Jean
  6. Sebastian thank you for all your input. Here are answerd to some of your questions. DS discalculia means that he loses his place in long multi step problems & that he just flat out works physically slower. In regards to our requirments I've talked to everyone about state standards at BOE & college. DS needs 4 high school maths. Algebra 1, Geom, Alg 2 & advanced math, there is no work around. Regarding the College Algebra course it is only offered at the semeter length & here is the coure description: This course provides an in-depth study of the properties of algebraic, exponential and logarithmic functions as needed for calculus. Emphasis is on using algebraic and graphical techniques for solving problems involving linear, quadratic, piece-wise defined, rational, polynomial, exponential, and logarithmic functions. Ds hoping to apply to a competitive nursing school. My understanding is that most of the nursing schools now are pretty darn competitive. So DS will need to keep his score really no lower than a B, which I recognize is going to be a stretch. His ACT math scores shows that he needs to work not just in geometry but also number & quantity, alebra & functions. I am disappointed that Saxon did not bring up his algebra score. So DS needs a solid curriculum to prepare him for the above college algebra class. Thus my quandry. Will MUS through pre-calc or cal prepare him appropriately? The final slap in the face is DS started MUS algebra 2 because we have it. He is really disliking how different the program presents questions compared to Saxon. They are almost too simplified & it's throwing him. I can't win. :(
  7. Thank you Elladarcy for the geometry link, I have never seen that & it looks very interesting. I have looked a lot at Jann in Texas posts. She really likes the Lials books. When my son & I look at them they seem very busy & there does not seem to be great video or computer instruction with them. So I don't think Lials will work. My son is documented with the discalculia & what it really means for him is extended time on tests, which as it turns out he has not actually needed. As someone stated earlier, he hasn't been exposed to a lot of the math on the ACT so that does not help. An interesting observation I did make, is that freshmen year in April while doing MUS algebra 1 DS took ACT cold & scored a 15 in the math. This Febrary as a sophmore about 2/3 done with the Saxon Algebra 1 book, DS took the ACT cold again & scored a 16 on the math. So I did not see the increase in score I had expected to see since we switched to Saxon. On the PSAT fall of freshmen year again just started MUS algebra 1 DS scored 390 in math. Fall of sophmore year having just started Saxon algebra 1 after completing MUS algebra 1 DS scored 380 in math,he actually went down. So I don't know what all of that means other than I did not see the expected increase in math I had hoped/assumed would happen afer taking Saxon algebra 1. So I guess to reiterate, I don't want a "soft" program to just pass him along. I want DS to be solid in his algebra skills but I'm not sure that is happening with Saxon. We like the layout of MUS, it's clean pages & DVDs but have grave concerns about its depth. Because of these concerns I was thinking if he got through MUS pre-calc maybe that would be the equivalent of other programs algebra 2 course. So we are still in limbo. Thank you all for your ongoing help.
  8. In our state DS needs a certain grade on ACT/SAT in math & english to DE. As of right now he does not have the necessary math grade. He needs a 18 on the ACT, he got a 16 this February. So maybe it will be an option senior year but not for junior year. So that still means I have from right now until next summer to complete 2 courses. I too want him to be solid in his course work & just not passed ahead which is why he did algebra 1 for 2 years & has passed both classes. I really "want" Saxon to work for him. I don't expect it to be easy but nor do I expect it to take 3+ hours. This DS was diagnosed with discalculia in 6th grade. He works like a Trojan but it is definetly harder for him than your "average" math student. He works doubly hard to stay on grade level in math. We are also enrolled in Mother of Divine Grace & they are unwilling to put algebra 1a & algebra 1b after the fact. His transcript already says algebra 1 for freshmen year, sophmore year is now blank. DS does have a tutor, she will work with him in whatever book we choose. That is helping but as I said he needs to progress forward. He doesn't have the luxury of 3-4 hours a day to dedicate to math. Perhaps I will have him look at TT again. Thanks for the ongoing help.
  9. Ok, what I'm hearing is to drop Saxon at this point & pick up a light/quick/easy geometry to get it done & then refocus on algebra 2 hopefully by fall. I already own MUS algebra 2 so I was thinking I would start that now but it sounds like I should quick buy a geometry course. It is a great idea to see about the college class spread out over a year but I think our CC does not allow that. Regarding needing more time on algebra 1, my son got a B in MUS algebra 1, he is finishing the Saxon Algebra 1 & he will finish with probably a low B or high C, so I am not making him remediate in algebra anymore. This is as good as it is going to get for him. One of the main problems with Saxon is the length of time it takes him to do the lesson, if he were younger I would just take 1 full year to do the Algebra 2 but I feel like we are getting into a real time crunch now. He has got to start progressing forward & I don't know if he would ever be able to do the saxon advanced math book (it sounds very difficult) that he would need to do to get the geometry credit. Since DS loves talking to Art Reed he feels like he is letting him down. And he calls MUS "baby math" so trust me he doesn't want to switch but there needs to be some other subjects covered each day, we can't spend 3+ hours on math. The reason I say MUS is because we have it & DS likes to DVD instruction. He doesn't like TT, he finds the animation babyish & distracting. Maybe I'll get MUS geometry but in the meantime have him start MUS algebra 2 & he can do it concurrently. If that is the case he may be able to get through MUS prec-calc & half the MUS calc book surely that would be enough to pass a college algebra class.
  10. Hi All, I am hoping for some pearls of wisdom here because I am really agonizing over a math decision. Here is the background. My DS is a sophomore & completed MUS Algebra 1 in 9th grade. He got a B in the class, he is not a strong math student & works hard for his grade. He had done MUS since 6th grade. Well last summer, after completing MUS algebra 1, DS decided he wants to be a nurse & get his BSN degree. Well after research we realized he will need college algebra & stats as general ed requirements & no other higher level maths. Thank goodness. So I decided he would do Saxon Algebra 1 until Thanksgiving as a quick review to solidify his algebra skills. Well long story short, he is now just finishing up Saxon Algebra 1 & it has been agony. Lessons take DS 3 hours & many test scores are in low 70's. We have talked to Art Reed on many occasions & he has been very helpful. He is having DS back up 10 lessons now & then charge forward. So here are my problems: Because I made DS repeat a class he already had on his transcript, he has no credit for math his sophomore year In our state he needs Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2 & an advanced math on his transcript to graduate DS really does better to split the Saxon lesson & half but then the next book will take too long Here are my questions: In looking at MUS Algebra 2, I think DS could whip through it because it has much of the same content as Saxon Alg 1-then he could be done by the end of summer & I could put it on his transcript, should I do this? If MUS in completed through Pre-Calculus is that enough for an low average math student to be prepared for College Algebra? Should DS finish out Saxon Algebra 1 & start Saxon Algebra 2 immediately, knowing it will take 365 days of agony to complete? Would a student like this even be capable of completing the first 60 lessons of Saxon Advanced Math he would need in order to get his Geometry credit? (It sounds like this course is difficult for a good math student) At this point I'm not interested in any other math curricula. Any guidance would be so greatly appreciated. I can't wrap my head around what the appropriate thing to do is. Jean
