  1. One of my kids is Deaf so we were in a position to learn ASL pretty quickly. We have used LifePrint (http://www.lifeprint.com/index.htm) It is very good and free. We also use Signing Saavy with the paid membership. The paid membership (about $50 a year) lets you have access and create lists. It also lets you use the Phase Builder feature. My kids are 9-13, so we have taken classes at the continuing ed program for my local college. This was fantastic and something we plan on continuing. :-) When they get older, we will do ASL through Dual Enrollment at my local college.
  2. Our previous math curriculum was great, but the video lessons didn't have captions. I need help finding a curriculum with video lessons that have captions. Thanks
  3. I really need an online Calc 2 class too and I really understand your frustration. The closest thing I have is an in person cc class. :( We currently take all our math classes through AoPS. This doesn't really answer your question, but the counting and probability, number theory and group theory might be another way to go. http://artofproblemsolving.com/school
  4. I think it depends on what they are talking about. I would think each and every condition has what a medical profession might consider severe. A severe hearing loss means that a person can not hear if a sounds is less than 71 decibels. It is a defined level of hearing. Here is a link to the degrees of hearing loss. http://www.asha.org/public/hearing/Degree-of-Hearing-Loss/
  5. How is his workload? My son wanted to do PreCalculus and Python next fall.
  6. Hi, I was planning on getting either ThinkWell or Plato for science. Have you tried both or one? Let me know what you think. If you have tried either, I would love to know your class and experience, I am not worried about having a lab, I just want my child to have the information in the class. I would also like something that tracks the students progress, either from their own portal or a teacher portal. Thanks
  7. First child took the online class, used the videos and did the homework for the class. He rarely used the pre-algebra book unless he had to look something up. My second child is taking an in person class with book work. He reads the book and does the homework in the book. He can't really watch the videos, so he relies on the book much more than my first child. I would think a solid late elementary reader could do it. The "writing challenge problems" in the online class require pretty good writing skills. Especially in the beginning of pre-algebra, I would read over my son's answers wit
  8. I just want to put this out there.... Counting and Probability has videos and Number theory doesn't. :)
  9. I found LifePrint too difficult. I could participate in http://www.signlanguage101.com/ lessons for a long time, but the LifePrint lessons for only 10 minutes or so. As far as how long it will take.... that is a hard thing to tell.
  10. Hi, my family did Beast Academy 3A, 3B, 3C and then my son took an AoPS Pre-Algebra 1 class. :) It was a bit tough doing the AoPS online class, we had to fill in holes, but after pre-algebra 1 he was caught up. :-) We would have gone through the other Beast Academy books, but they weren't released yet. :-)
  11. I tend to do classes, so it is really expensive. I figure it is worth it if my loves what they are learning and they are being taught by subject matter experts that love what they do.
  12. Thanks for suggesting this, it looks great! I love love love that it has captions. :D Most YouTube videos use automatic captioning and are OFTEN incorrect. We have been using this ASL channel with good results. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c8WIr61r1Do I have 9, 11, and 13 year olds and Signing Time wouldn't work in our house. It is definitely geared toward younger kids. Plus the music and background sounds are really distracting.
