1. ## whole to parts algebra

Clickie, thanks for the recommendations! I'll check those out.
2. ## whole to parts algebra xpost

Yes, I think I'll do that.
3. ## whole to parts algebra

Yes, I think that's basically what I'll do. I teach math and have come to this problem lots over the years. These skills have a purpose, but so many students never get to the part where they are used. I'd love to find a rearranged curriculum that focused on problems first.
4. ## whole to parts algebra

Thanks. I'll look at it!
5. ## whole to parts algebra xpost

He is in Algebra 1, but since the question in Jacobs asked what was happening to the ratios as the variable got larger, I told him about limits. That's the kind of thing he'd like to know about even if he can't do all the manipulation yet.
6. ## whole to parts algebra xpost

As an example, he is on the chapter of operations with algebraic fractions. I know he needs to have those skills to solve equations with algebraic fractions, but they don't come for 3-4 more chapters. (Also, limits and derivatives, which is what we talked about today ) He'd like to see the equations or word problems first.

Thanks! I used MUS for another child, so I'll look at it again.
8. ## whole to parts algebra xpost

I do that. This child wants to know what the individual skills are used for. Usually, I can look ahead in the book and show him, but it would be nice to have another source.
9. ## whole to parts algebra xpost

Is there an algebra program that is more whole to parts: starting with problems and then breaking down the skills? We are about half way through Jacobs Algebra, but I'm curious what else is out there.

11. ## Latin After GSWL

Thank you. I'll look at those.
12. ## Latin After GSWL

My 7th grader has gone through several introductory Latin books. He will finish GSWL soon. What are good suggestions for curriculum or classes to move him forward? I don't know Latin and don't want to learn, but my husband had a semester in college using Wheelock's. I need something that is going to do a decent job teaching. He likes reading Latin in GSWL but doesn't feel there is enough instruction to figure out why he misses sentences.
13. ## middle school logic curriculum

Is it helpful for kids to do Fallacy Detectives and Art of Argument? Is it repetitive?
14. ## Science for Co-op

I'm supposed to teach Apologia General Science to junior high kids at a Christian co-op next year. I don't love Apologia; it's long winded. The experiments seem not great. These kids have been using the Young Explorers books and Real Science for Kids. What would you suggest for alternatives? The leaders are young Earth, so it needs to be YE or not mention dates. Thanks!
15. ## Computer Project Resources + Raspberry Pi

I'm trying to help my new freshman deepen his interests and make them into something worth some high school credit. He is currently wanting to repair some old computers. I can see lots of potential in this, but I'm having trouble finding resources on the hardware and repair part of computers, not so much on coding and programs. Even our library system had very little. Any ideas? Also, any feedback on using Raspberry Pi would be welcome.
