  1. Hello, I'm looking at using Acellus Academy for a few classes for my daughter who will be a sophomore next year. If anyone has experience with Acellus and their high school courses please share them with me. Respectfully, Joe
  2. Hello, my 9-year daughter loves looking at tiny objects under our cheap microscope. I would like to get a better microscope and some kind of Biology or Life Sciences kit that has lesson plans that include experiments using the microscope. If anyone can recommend such a course/kit please let me know. Respectfully, Joe
  3. Hello, I am looking for comments on the Instructor Led courses at BYU Independent Study Online Courses. I am planning on enrolling my 9th grader next fall and I want to make sure I'm making the right decision. If anyone has comments or experience with BYU please let me know. Thank you, Joe
  4. Hello, this year we thought to try Introduction to Algebra by The Art of Problem Solving for my 8th grade daughter. The previous years we used Singapore Math. The Intro to Algebra comes with a text book and a workbook but no test book. Can anyone who is familiar with Art of Problem Solving's Introduction to Algebra suggest how I should do testing? Thanks, Joe
  5. Julie, I found this web sites: https://www.artofproblemsolving.com/store/list/aops-curriculum Is that it?
  6. Thanks Julie! I'm not familiar with Art of Problem Solving, can you point me in the right direction where I may order a copy?
  7. Hello, my daughter is currently in the 7th grade and is using New Elementary Mathematics Grades 7 - 8 by Singapore Math. We are thinking ahead to the 9th grade and wondering what will be the next math curriculum. Can anyone suggest a math curriculum that would be as challenging as Singapore Math New Elementary Math? Thanks, Joe
  8. Hello, I need help finding the title and the author of a book I read a few years ago. I came across this book while reading "The Well-Trained Mind" but have searched and can't this book. The book was about two wooden toy dolls. Both are asking each other the question, "who made them". One doll believes that he evolved into a doll. The other doll believed that he was made by a creator. It was a wonderful book and I made the mistake of not writing down the title or author. If anyone recalls of this book please let me know. Thank you very much, joe
  9. Hi, I was wondering if anyone would be able to comment on the curriculum from Logos Press? They offer curriculum for grades 2 - 12. Thank you very much, joe
  10. Hello, I am now reading the book, "The Well-Trained Mind" by Susan Wise Bauer and would like help finding a complete homeschool curriculum. I want something that best mirrors what is taught in the book. I have looked at Memoria Press but not sure they follow the same pattern of study as the book emphasizes. For example, on page 46 of the book they show this pattern of study for science. I like Classical Conversations, they appear to follow the pattern of study as in the book but I need to find out if you must have a tutor or be involved with their online community. I get so busy that I think I would miss most of the online events. My daughter is 6 and we have used Rod and Staff which I really like because it is simple. If anyone has some suggestions or comments, please let me know. Thanks, joe
