  6. When do you count working a part-time job as a work co-op?
  7. I know this is an older post, but wanted to see if anyone has any other suggestions...internet safe sites you recommend, etc.
  8. We are Christians, but I am interested in finding a comparative religion course. Does anyone have a suggestion? Alison
  9. Thank you so very much Lolly! That was greatly encouraging and full of some great nuggets. I really appreciate all of your suggestions. Alison
  10. Does anyone have a suggestion for an Algebra 2 course? I know I'm leaping here, but I do plan on buying a program and using it with whatever time I have. We are working okay through the Tabletclass pre-algebra course. If I continue with their Algebra 1, there will be some overlap between the pre-algebra and algebra 1. I could try their Algebra 2 also, but I wasn't sure if there was something out there I was missing. I really like the looks of Power Basics for geometry, but I see they do not have Algebra 2. Also, I found edX and their intro to geometry looks great for my needs. I boug
  11. I've written down all of the above suggestions of curriculum, etc. Thank you all. Honestly, I really wasn't looking for suggestions as much as I was looking for some in the same situation to discuss our situation and the handling of it. And success stories, I really was hoping to hear of success stories :). All that being said, I still do appreciate the suggestions. I had the wonderful opportunity yesterday to speak with a local public school guidance and career counselor. She was able to enlighten me on some of the confusion I had. Bottom line is that right now in my state (KY) all
  12. I am not doing nothing and calling it a something. I am doing something as best as we can and going to call it passable. We have consistently worked on math every year, summers, etc. Even the different math textbooks are not consistent. Our pre-algebra mathusee did not have a lot of algebra in it. Now our pre-algebra Tabletclass math has a lot of algebra, and comparing it to the algebra 1, has many of the same topics, one just works a bit slower than the other. I know you don't mean anything negative, and I'll admit I'm feeling like my toes are being stomped on a bit. As stated above
  13. I had to take a few days away from my own thread :). What was meant as a whiny post griping about the way things are set up making it difficult for some kids has me stressing out about it all over again. Storygirl, I wanted to thank you for the thought and hugs. Well, not just Storygirl, but everyone here! I really appreciate it. I do feel like I am in a situation where preparing this kid for college means I have to list a passing grade for algebra 1, 2, and geometry. It's what I've seen listed at the local community college and the closest state college. I really don't know what
