  1. Has anyone used these 2 together? Fascinating Chemistry and Chemistry 101? Have you used any Fascinating Education courses? I'm not finding many reviews. Pam
  2. Well Master Books was not for us. We are doing BJU 6th for 7th grade and not liking it. We just never found our love for science. 😞
  3. Looking for Chemistry for 15 & 16 year old boys. Neither one is planning on college, but not totally ruling it out. I am specifically looking at Spectrum Chemistry right now. I’d like something self guiding with labs. Not heavy in math. Video would be nice, but not required. (I know SC does not have video lessons) pam
  4. This was very helpful. Thank you. I have dabbled some in EIW, FixIt, and IEW. I have often wondered if I would have done any of them all the way through if it would be a thorough coverage. I never had that confidence though. thanks for sharing!! pam
  5. I read some reviews on Exodus Books. C. Hollis Crossman says this about BJU history... "This course will give your kids a solid knowledge of history. It may not give them as much of an understanding, since it doesn't cover ideas or movements in as much detail as it might, but they will be familiar with the general flow of events." Do you feel the same? I'm trying to decide on BJU American vs Notgrass American. Maybe Notgrass will give them a better 'understanding'? or "cover ideas or movements... (and) be familiar with the general flow of events" better? But will Notgrass g
  6. Could someone tell me what you think of this program? Looking for 6th grade. Possibly 10th grade for a one-swoop review. Does GUM cover all grammar? Anything left out? (I'm not talking about all English aspects. I have writing and spelling covered.) Pam
  7. I heard from 2 people I know that they did the 2 together for 1 credit. My 16 year old son is doing FB. He really likes it. I know a family who has Biology 101, who I might borrow it from just to view it. Sorry, that's all I know. Pam
  8. We decided on TT this year because I looked at some samples of R&S, CLE, and TT, and TT had the best explanation on that particular topic. Then I just read this: "My kids appeared to thrive in TT until we tried math outside the TT program and books. Then unrealized though they aced the TT assign nuts, they had lost two full grade levels of math ability by the time we left TT. It was sobering to see how important it is to dive deeper and not just tell kids do it this way because that's just how it's done (which TT actually said!!) Oh, NO! So, I LOVE the way MUS teaches the
  9. Are you still using Writing Strands? Which levels have you used? How far do you think you will go with it? I would really like some feedback from someone who uses it, sticks with it, will continue to the end. Pam
  10. YAY!!! I am hoping to 'expose it' more for others! Thank you for sharing that. Pam
  11. Have you seen this Blog post?... https://www.joyinourjourney.com/whats-new-blog/friendly-chemistry-for-homeschooled-high-schoolers-review-and-giveaway "In addition to my initial scanning of the materials, I decided to select one chapter and compare it to the Apologia, Bob Jones, and RealScience4Kids textbooks I already owned. Guess which chapter I selected? Quantum Mechanics! (Dad, you would be proud!) ☺ First, I read through Friendly Chemistry's chapter on Quantum Mechanics. Um, okay. That seemed pretty straightforward and easily understandable. N
  12. Thank you for the update. I had all 3 courses (Biology, Chemistry, Anatomy) with videos given to me to review. I am planning on starting with Biology next school year. I cannot find enough reviews for them to convince me that I really want to do them for our high school science. I don't think that our boys are going for STEMS programs, but one is very good in math and I don't want to shortchange him if he changes his mind. It's good to hear that you will be doing the Chemistry again. Pam
