  1. This. I have some fairly significant challenges right now and I have considered posting for ideas many times. But, I'd have to go into so much detail about our particular situation. I don't feel comfortable revealing so much about this student so it is a tricky situation.
  2. I tried aops for my son mostly because of descriptions I read here. This was for a kid who in grade 7 could not finish more than 1/4 of a grade 6 math program. Aops geometry and algebra were a perfect fit for him. Some struggling students can use these programs, but of course it isn't going to be a good fit for all. This son has gone on to excel at higher math and we might not have unlocked this potential were it not for the board discussions. For OP: I have been considering starting a thread 'Minimal High School Help' because I am now homeschooling an average or below average teen.

  7. Thanks for all the great suggestions. :) DS has started doing a few of these things. I feel as though he is already so busy in 9th grade, I can hardly imagine him having much time in 11th grade to do a lot of college research. He is pretty sure he would like to go to graduate school and pursue a Ph.D. DH (who is a Prof at our state Univ) goes on about how where you get your undergrad degree is less important than your grad degree, but DS still has his hopes set pretty high for undergraduate studies. We did poke around a bit on the college board site for picking a college and we found
  8. I'd love to read some tips on narrowing down college choices. DS has been looking into colleges with strong programs in his desired area of study, but there are so many options it is overwhelming. Plus, the highly competitive schools stand out, of course, and it is easy for him to stay focused on them! How do we start looking for good match school? Ack!
  9. I sent you a pm.
