  1. Anyone have this for the reset of parent password? It's the weekend and we're in Hawaii so I missed business hours :(
  2. Does anyone have any feedback for these classes with a student who wants to pursue a STEM major in college? Thanks.
  3. Thank you for this example. The TLP guides are one per book with the exception of Poetry. I'm starting to think I might use AG instead. What did you do for grammar and vocab?
  4. No, no not 75% of a 1 credit class. More like, one class equalling 25% of a 1 credit class.
  5. For those of you who have used this program, do you consider this .25 of a .50 program. I'm referring to Expository Essay. I was considering doing this for English this year with Total Language Plus study guides for .50 credit? What do you think?
  6. We could have it electronically sent, but that took 5 days to arrive as well. We would request expedited shipping, but it took the same amount of time. It was extremely frustrating and very suspicious 😒
  7. RegGuheert- I completely agree with you about PreAlgebra. I feel like we rushed past it and we really should've given it more mind. He's actually had to spend a lot longer on Algebra so that he can understand the concepts.
  8. Thank you for your replies. Midori- his classes were self paced. You are given a start date and an end date. There wasn't a weekly deadline for assignments. You turned them in once you finished them. You must finish the final by the end date. If you don't, there is an additional fee to extend the class. We were trying to get it in before we would have to pay the extra fee, although we ended up paying it anyway just to avoid the cramming situation. The exams are 25% of the grade, but you must receive a 70% or higher to pass the class. He was receiving a B+ in Algebra and anB- in English before his exam. Fried Clams- "Can he normally wait until the last minute on stuff and get a pass?" Obviously I don't know you and your family, but I don't think "smart" is any where near as important as diligent, consistent, and hard working and by giving a pass and essentially fudging grades I don't think he'd learn anything." We live in Hawaii. It would take over a week for the exam to get to the proctor after we requested it. During that time he was studying for the finals, so it wasn't as though he was cramming for the exam the night before. We ended up even extending the classes anyway so that wouldn't be the case. It wasn't my intention to "fudge" grades. That would not benefit anyone in this situation. On My Own- thank you for your suggestions. I am evaluating his skills in both classes and seeing how to proceed.
  9. Ds is a smart kid. I'm not just saying that because he's my kid. He did classes through UT Austin HS this past year. Two classes that he was getting Bs in, he ended up failing because of the exams. Admittedly, there was a mad rush to complete the classes before the deadline. However I think he has test anxiety because this has happened before. We are in the process of changing his classes so they are traditional homeschool classes versus all online. Still, what do I do about these core classes- Algebra and English, that he completely failed because of the final exam?
  10. We are breaking away from using all online high school. Ds is just over having so much online work. So what it everyone doing for 11th? Tentative Schedule: History Odyssey- US History Writing- Bravewriter Literature- Science- dual credit at CC Math- Thinkwell or TT Extra curricular- archery, Boy Scouts, Robotics
  11. Greetings, I was wondering if anyone has used these online classes and what the experience has been. I'm considering using them for World History II, English III and Geometry. My son is STEM oriented. Thank you for your feedback. Tina
  12. I'm looking for a less Eurocentric history spine for my 7th. Grader and see many of you use Zinn's A Young People's History of the United States: Columbus to the War on Terror (For Young People Series). I've seen criticism on the accuracy of the information, but I believe some of that is colored by the political biases of the critic. What is your take?
  13. :lurk5: and BUMP! I'm also curious about what power to order.
  14. :lol: I was kind of laughing about the "fashionable" part at the beginning. I do it strictly for the glamour ;)
  15. Hi, We just got here to Okinawa in December & wanted to see if any fellow WTM'ers were here. :) Tina
  16. I rented it from Netflix but couldn't bring myself to watch it :P I read the book, so I kinda knew how it would go. My dh saw it (he's in Korea) & told me it was sad.
