  5. I have the video tapes and books of Latin Primer I and II from years ago. One daughter went through the course several years ago, but I'm not sure how much she learned (or how much she's retained). I've been seeing good things about First Form and have wondered if I should spend the $ or just stick with the old that I have for my 7th grader (different child than above). I have no background in Latin, and probably need something that child can do without me (given other responsibilities right now), but I would like something rigorous that will give 7th grader a real sense of accomplishment and lead to a desire to continue into later levels. Any suggestions appreciated.
  6. How do these courses work? What are your experiences? Is it a virtual classroom a few times a week? How does the interaction with the instructor work--live questions or email or what? Any comments re your experience would be helpful--we've got to make a decision, but I just don't know anything about this company/course provider.:confused:
  7. I have determined that two of my children (ages 13 and 15) need a structured writing class/experience this summer taught and graded by someone other than me. :rolleyes: They are bright girls and very solid in grammar. (They are just finishing the Rod & Staff grammar series.) Although they are not bad writers, they need more help, experience, motivation, and feedback than I am able to give them right now. And I also think that--for their personalities and what they are currently experiencing in life--they will work better under some pressure to meet the expectations and deadlines of someone other than Mom. I know that there have got to be a lot of online resources for writing tutors/teachers/graders/classes, and I am hoping to find something that is good but not too expensive. What are all of your recommendations?
  8. We have the dvds but have not gotten very far through them yet. From what I can tell, it is a basic high school level class and just has the lectures-no labs.
  9. For those of you that give grades, what format/forms do you use for recording the daily readings, assignments, weekly quizes, tests, etc.? I am "organizationally challenged" :ack2: and need some help in this area. Until now (oldest in 9th grade) we have not recorded a score for everything, but I'm thinking it is very important (for her and for me) that we do so now. I've considered making up our own forms, but I'm hoping that there is something out there that I can just start plugging into. Thanks for any advice.
  10. I am very confused about the various editions out there. :confused:Looking up used copies by ISBN brings up all kinds of years; some say 1981, some say 1981-2000; some say 1998, some say 2000. (And I think that there were some others.) How do I tell if there is any substantive difference? Also, specifically, does the 1998 ed. of Critical Thinking work with the 2000 ed teacher guide?
  11. Do you know the difference between the two TI-84 calculators they have in the ad?
  12. Thank you for all the great suggestions--I have hope now! For my future purchases--do most of you always contact the seller first to ask if a used book has a smoke odor, or do you assume that it doesn't if the seller hasn't indicated?
  13. I bought a book online from an Amazon used book seller, and it smells so strongly of cigarette smoke that we cannot use it. (Should I have expected this problem to be disclosed, or is this something you always have to ask about when buying used?:confused: ) Is there any way to eliminate the odor? TIA!
  14. For some reason, I'm having trouble locating the Algebra 2 ISBNs on Pongo's thread. Also, is the progression for Chalkdust go in this order: Algebra 1 Geometry Precalculus Calculus? We're celebrating with you!:hurray:
