    Uses a hands on approach throughout. You learn by building your own simple circuits. You begin by blowing a fuse or burning out an LED to demonstrate voltage, amperage, and electrical resistance. As it says on the cover, "Burn things out, mess things up that's how you learn!" This is the perfect introduction to hands-on electronics.Paperback book in excellent condition. $15 ppd (media mail within the US)

    Making Things Move

    • FOR SALE
    • USED

    In Making Things Move, you'll learn how to build moving mechanisms through non-technical explanations, examples, and do-it-yourself projects--from art installations to toys to labor-saving devices. The projects include a drawing machine, a mini wind turbine, a mousetrap powered car, and more, but the applications of the examples are limited only by your imagination. A breadth of topics is covered ranging from how to attach couplers and shafts to a motor, to converting between rotary and linear motion. Each chapter features photographs, drawings, and screenshots of the components and systems involved. Emphasis is placed on using off-the-shelf components whenever possible, and most projects also use readily available metals, plastics, wood, and cardboard, as well as accessible fabrication techniques such as laser cutting. Small projects in each chapter are designed to engage you in applying the material in the chapter at hand. Later in the book, more involved projects incorporate material from several chapters.

    The Reader's Odyssey is a four-year literature program for homeschoolers that combines structure and flexibility to instill in students a propensity to engage in good and great books. Emphasizing the value of classic works that have endured the test of time, this program's developmentally appropriate, "errorless" approach allows students to focus first on exploring many diverse literary works and only later on applying what they have learned to interpreting and evaluating literature for themselves.

  11. DS was also accepted to Virginia Commonwealth University (back in November, but I forgot to post). He has made his decision..... Where: West Virginia University Why: Excellent forensics program. Beautiful campus and warm, friendly people. (He got a good merit scholarship and a small grant, but that wasn't part of the decision) Major: Forensic and Investigative Science
  12. DS was accepted into the forensics program at Virginia Commonwealth University. They said he qualifies for a scholarship, but we have to wait to find out how much.
  13. DS has been admitted to the Honors College at West Virginia University. Yay! Still working on other applications.
  14. Definitely check with private schools in your area. My ds took the PSAT at private school the first time and then at the local public school. Kim
  15. Thanks, Frances. That's what I was thinking. I think having a basic understanding will work so much better for my son than just jumping into calculus in college. I also found a Great Courses calculus course that looks good for a supplement.
  16. Yes, he did AP Statistics with PA Homeschoolers this year.
  17. Thanks, Debbie. Right now I am leaning toward light exposure next year and having him take Calc 1 in college.
  18. Thanks for the suggestions, Julie. My son does not want to do an online class, so PA Homeschoolersis out. I’ll look at Thinkwell. I toyed with teaching it myself, but math has been so painful for us in the past due to my son disliking math. It was just too stressful. We tried Derek Owens physics this past year and my son didn’t enjoy Derek’s teaching style.
  19. If you go with forensics, check out the Illustrated Guide to Home Forensic Science Experiments (ISBN: 978-1-449-33451-2) Kim
  20. I'm looking for a calculus curriculum for next year and came across Math-U-See. I would like to hear from anyone who has used it, what you liked and didn't like. My son, who will be a senior next year, does well in math, but does not like math. I feel it is important for him to take calculus next year since he will need to take it in college and I want him to be familiar with it before then. If you're reading this and used something other than MUS, I would like to hear from you too. TIA Kim
  21. Has anyone ever had a transcript rejected by a college because it wasn't in the requested format? One of the schools my son is interested in applying to (West VA Univ) requests the transcript be organized by year. Due to summer classes at a local university, I had planned to organize his transcript by subject. So, just wondering if anyone has ever had a problem due to the format of the transcript. Also, if anyone has applied to WVU, I would like to hear about your experience. Thanks! Kim
