  1. EKS... I'm not willing to switch at this point as we are 35 lessons in. I think this could be a good learning experience. He is medicated fairly effectively. If at the end of Saxon Algebra 1 it really doesn't seem to be working, I'll look at Jacobs. It has to have teaching DVDs, though, as I said above I'm only here two days a week.
  2. The weekly tests brought the problem to light. I hadn't been giving them to him, but he asked me to. I really wanted him to finish Algebra 1 by the end of the summer, but if it takes longer, it takes longer. He's got until June 2020 to finish through advanced math, so he has time.
  3. He did better yesterday. He has to correct those and so another test today. Hopefully it'll get better over the next couple of weeks.
  4. Thanks, Arctic Mom, for the help. He just needs to be able to pass the CC placement test by next spring, so he can get into the Auto tech dual enrollment program. I don't want him missing out because of sloppy mistakes!
  5. That's what I was doing, but read on here that you shouldn't do that with Saxon?
  6. He's 16, and I don't really want to have to hold his hand. Also, unfortunately, I'm only here two days a week. (I work full-him.) That precludes my sitting with him doing the lessons (and he'd probably lose his mind being that micro-managed. Lol) He does have pretty severe ADD, and had an IEP in public school. However, at his age he has to learn to accommodate his weaknesses, too. It's hard to balance that I think. Parenting almost-adults is just hard! :) Maybe just making him redo all the problems he misses every time will do the trick. He might get tired of doing them over and over again.
  7. My 9th grader came back home after 4.5 years in public school. He's always done very well in math, and had a 98 average in his last math course (called Foundations of Math, which is Pre-Algebra.) I have him in Saxon Algebra 1, and he's about 35 lessons in. He seems to understand the concepts. He asked me to start giving him the tests, and he bombed his first one. The ones he missed were for little math mistakes (ie. didn't reduce to lowest form, switched a negative to a positive, copied incorrectly, etc.) He knows his math concepts, it's just these little mistakes. Any ideas on what I can I do to help him be more accurate?
  8. Unfortunately, you can't make a 15yo go to counseling. Counseling only works if the person is willing and wants to change. (((Rose))) I cannot imagine the heartache.
  9. I plan to get a breast lift and tummy tuck after I have lost all my weight and maintained it for one year. I birthed and nursed 7 children, so everything sags. Add to that the tremendous amount of weight I have lost (and more I will lose) and it just needs to be done. If I am going to work this hard, I am going to go all the way.

  13. Everything can be wrong, even IQ tests. Trust me!:D
  14. You stole 181 cookies!


    Rules of the game: if you find this (anyone except the cookie thief themselves) then post here to say "I caught the cookie thief! BUT... someone else took 182 cookies from the cookie jar!" That way we know this player has been caught and we'll look on another profile. Next, copy this entire post and paste it onto someone else's profile (player must have more than 100 posts and must have been active in the last month.) Lastly, change the numbers so each increase by one. It will be easier to track that way. Please post your findings in the thread entitled SOMEONE STOLE A COOKIE! Forum Game. Have Fun!
