  1. I don't think the Mays book uses trig because he had only had Algebra 1 when he took it. He needs a 4th science. Just need to figure out what. He plans to major in Computer Science. He will have to take a calculus based physics his first year of college so like regentrude said, another algebra physics might be overkill. What are some other options for a fourth year of science that he could take as an online class?
  2. @regentrude In your opinion, should he take another physics class? It seems like the first one was conceptual physics.
  3. Thank you for the link. The following was a quote from @regentrude in that thread so I think taking another physics course would be a good idea before he goes to college. His major will be Computer Science. Just wanted to make sure Derek Owens would be a good one. "In my experience, taking an algebra based physics class first is a valuable preparation for a calc based physics course at college. The completion of calculus is necessary, but really does not play such an important role. The students who struggle in calc based physics because of math typically do so because their algeb
  4. My son took Physics 1 Honors at Wilson Hill Academy in 9th grade using Accelerated Studies in Physics and Chemistry by John Mays. Is Derek Owens Physics more advanced or will it be a review? Mathwise, he is taking Precalculus dual enrollment this semester so I don't think he can take a calculus based physics class yet.
  5. Thank you for the feedback! I will look into Clover Creek and Derek Owens. Any other suggestions or reviews?
  6. Ds planned to take physics dual enrollment next year at the community college, but they don't have any classes that will work with our schedule and location. What do you think is the best option for an online class (live or asynchronous)? He might be interested in AP but hasn't had any calculus yet. He plans to major in Computer Science. Previous math and science background: Physical science, Chemistry, Biology Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2, College Algebra, Trigonometry He will be taking Pre-Calculus Fall 2020 at local community college and plans to take Calculus 1 Spr
  7. I had planned to start my daughter in CLE Algebra 1 in January after she finishes 800 light units. Now I see there are two options, a new textbook and an alternative course of 10 units. Can anyone who is using the new textbook tell me what you think of it? Are they basically the same? Thanks!
  8. Does anyone have experience with Debra Bell's AIM Academy? I'm looking for an online class for my upcoming 8th grader. This will be her first online class other than Outschool. I didn't find many reviews of AIM Academy, but several of the classes looked like good fits for her. Info on any of the classes or instructors would be helpful. Any specific info on these classes or instructors would be great! Life Science - Dr. Karen Joseph Intro to Chemistry & Physics - Susan Habacivch American History Through Literature - Bev Graybill

  10. Thank you for your reply, 4ofus! My main questions: I'm assuming it isn't a live class since I didn't see any days/times listed. Am I correct? How many projects were there? How many hours per week did you need to devote to this class? My son is also taking 3 live online classes and I want to make sure he'll have time for this. Anything else you'd like to add? Thanks!!
  11. Can anyone give me a review of the FundaFunda High School World Geography course? It looks fun and engaging, but I'm having trouble finding reviews. Thanks!
  12. Does anyone have experience with Fundamentals of Latin with K. Songer? We have been happy with math and science classes this year for my 9th grade son and was thinking about starting my daughter with WHA next year. She will be 7th grade (12) and has no latin experience.
  13. I recently discovered Wilson Hill Academy and am almost decided to enroll my son in Geometry. I inquired about seeing an archive class and was told they couldn't send one to me based on privacy concerns. They sent me a link to the parent meeting from January and I was intrigued by the science classes. We had planned to use Miller-Levine for Biology in 9th, but am now rethinking whether WHA's sequence of physics first is better. We are currently doing Exploration Education Advanced Physical Science course in 8th. Anyone who has taken Physics 1 Honors, what did you think of the class and te
