  1. My 12 year old boy is like that. We do math together, that helps. Some days I have to send him off to do it alone, but generally I sit side by side and we do it together.
  2. This is an old post. I haven't reread it, but did anyone ever mention James Tanton? Specifically, Exploding Dots (video lessons with PDF book) and Math Without Words (book or PDF). So good! http://gdaymath.com/courses/exploding-dots/ https://www.amazon.com/Without-Words-Mathematical-Puzzles-Confound/dp/1907550232
  3. His materials cover the how and why of the circuits. So there's reading and quizzes and tests involved along with building the circuits.
  4. We did EP1 but haven't moved on to the next level yet. I'm certain the other levels will be just more of the same. So if she's enjoying the first level I'd keep moving on.
  5. From what I can piece together, I think the author and some other WTMers had a bit of kerfuffle and the author threatened to sue TWTM over the negative portrayal of himself. So the moderators asked the hive to not discuss it any longer. And any unsavory posts were deleted.
  6. Ha ha! Yes the author is Paul, but I didn't see any posts by him. Looks like they've all been deleted. We'll see how it goes I guess.
  7. Ok fine. I just ordered it and I'll find out for myself. 😉

  9. It seemed like it was gaining some popularity here about 6 years ago. And then all the sudden there was no more talk about it. I'm interested in knowing if anyone uses/used it. If we aren't allowed to talk about it, can someone who's used it PM me?
  10. They have an ancient myths series too. https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/1904642306/ref=pd_aw_sim_14_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=RP8VG5CNZX4X38KE6KSY
  11. Roman Roads Media is excellent! My son took Good Books 1 and is currently enrolled in Good Books 2. They are reading great literature, and have awesome book discussions. The students are also required to write papers. In 1 they wrote fiction. In 2 they are writing essays. Mr. Nance is so great! My only complaint is that Mr. Nance had a family emergency and had to leave for the rest of the semester. The current teacher is just filling in. But hopefully Mr. Nance will return to teaching. But these classes have been so good!
  12. My oldest son took Latin through lone pine. The teacher was fabulous! The classes were engaging. A lot of the learning was done through immersion. Reading Latin from the very beginning. He took the National Latin Exam two years in a row, and came away with incredibly high marks, telling me he really understood the material. Quick study labs (Edison Project) is an online course, but isn't teacher led. Although the teacher is always available to answer questions. Each week there are reading assignments and electronic circuits to build, using the elenco snap circuits kits. There's a quiz at the end of each week, and a test every four weeks. The class lasts eight weeks. The projects are fun, and it has given my son a way to engage in something fun but still have a little responsibility to complete things on a time table. They offer several sciences courses.
  13. Lone pine Latin was amazing!! We've also been using Quick Study Labs for electronics (Edison project). It's been a lot of fun.
