  1. medium is not a peer reviewed scientific journal
  2. You know a class must have a fabulous reputation if not just one, but three students arrive in the classroom at 7:30am to secure good seats for a 9am class. (No, not my class, but my DD was one of the students)

      Kudos to your DD!


      This sort of thing happens often at middle son's school. It really surprised me, but they have "fun" with it. Some kids will even sit through earlier classes in the same room to get a jump!

  3. Proud of DS who just spent two hours working on an AoPS Challenge problem with a star and three hints - without looking at the hints. He stuck with it and figured it out himself.

      I wish we could use smileys in status updates. Wanted to add the one of the bouncy, cheery one or at least the 2 thumbs up one.

  4. Interview went well I think. He let me basically talk for half an hour, with a few question. I felt a bit nervous, primarily because I was not jst speaking on behalf of my home school, but acted as a representative for an extremely diverse local group, with very divers motivations and schooling philosophies. But I think it went OK.

      Yea! Hope you're pleased with the article!

      I'm sure you were a great representative of the home school community and a great "Myth Buster".

  5. What have I done? I have just agreed to being interviewed by a writer for our local paper about homeschooling. Wish me luck.

      You'll do fine! Hope you have some fun with it. Have some math/physics equations hanging around....intimidate the heck out of the reporter ;)

      Hey Dana, I *like* that idea... not that I have to make this happen on purpose, I am still prepping for the semester and physics books and papers are strewn all over my living room ;-)

  6. DD finished her last round of subject SATs this morning - and we are now officially done! Let there be summer!

    1. Dana


      Yea! Enjoy the break!

      Fantastic. Can I ask you how many she did and what she thought. You can pm me too. Are you done with your school too?

  7. Two hours into puzzling over an AoPS geometry problem. It is a challeng problem with star and three hints. No, I am stubborn and will not look at the hints. At least not until tonight. The funny thing is that I must have solved that same problem three years ago with DD.

      I figured it out! While sitting at the hair salon, LOL. Something about having my scalp massaged translated to my brain.

      LOL...all the bits of info floating around must have merged into a cohesive whole.

      I found myself drawing on the shower door, trying to solve an AoPS Geometry problem we were stuck on. Dd solved it before I returned downstairs...

  8. Hey, I just want to say that I've really appreciated your posts over the past few months. Esp. the ones about science study, math, and university experience.

  9. Regentrude stole 15 cookies from the cookie jar!Rules of the game: if you find this (anyone except the cookie thief themselves) then post here to say "I caught the cookie thief! BUT... someone else took two cookies from the cookie jar!" That way we know this player has been caught and we'll look on another profile. Next, copy this entire post and paste it onto someone else's profile (player must have more than 100 posts and must have been active in the last month.) Lastly, change the type in red so that the numbers each increase by one. It will be easier to track that way. Please post your findings in the thread entitled SOMEONE STOLE A COOKIE! Forum Game. Have Fun!

  10. I really like your posts. You make me feel like less of an alien on here sometimes ;), plus you often show a capacity to say, in fewer words and more coherently, what I think as well. I also discovered AoPS for my middle daughter largely thanks to you.


    Overall, I like your presence on the boards. Thank you for it. :)
