  1. We have used Teaching Textbooks so far. I was going to continue with that but people keep telling me he should use something more challenging or with an instructor. Any suggestions for programs?
  2. We are looking for Pre-Calc. I have never heard of Asynchronous classes.
  3. My son will be a junior this year and has completed Algebra 2 and Geometry. I was planning to have him continue math at the community college this year but we are going to have several opportunities to travel this year and I know he can't miss that much time from the college campus. I am not sure what to do. Does anyone have suggestions for online classes at this level that he could do wherever we are?
  4. We have the GC Introduction to the Universe and the Filippenko book, The Cosmos Astronomy in the New Millennium. I was wondering if anyone has made lesson plans to use the two together.
  5. I am looking for a Catholic curriculum for my eighth grade son which he could possibly continue through high school. We have never used a box curriculum before but I think for this particular boy it might be helpful to follow a rigorous program this year to prepare him for high school. I have been looking at Seton, Mother of Divine Grace, and Kolbe. Whichever one I look at seems better until I go look at the others again. I have to say I don't think their websites are very helpful. Is there anyone who has used them or seen them in person who could help me see the differences so I can make a decision? He is a 13 year old boy so I don't want him to be bored or use something that is too easy.
  6. Muttichen - The scores are from his online teacher. As far as the MCQ's he seems to be having the most problem with really paying attention to what the question is asking.
  7. Unsinkable - Thank you so much! I had not seen that but it is very encouraging.
  8. My son is scheduled to take the APUSH exam this week and he is only getting about 50% of his mcq's correct. He usually gets 9's on his essays. Someone said he should not take it. What do you think?
  9. My son, who will be in tenth grade in the fall, is interested in taking astronomy. He found the Great Courses: Understanding the Universe course. I think this is the Teaching Company? The video download is $679. Does this go on sale? What else would we need? Would we need a textbook? I appreciate any suggestions. Thanks, Barb
  10. I just got the books for Henle Latin from Memoria Press. We have used their First and Second Form programs in the past with good results. The Henle program does not have any type of workbook, just a daily list of assignments, and only includes answers for some things. I have no background in Latin. I am very concerned about how well my ADD boys will do. If you have used Henle, can you please tell me how it worked for you.
  11. I have almost 30,000 photos in iPhoto. I have been having some problems with iPhoto lately and I don't know if there are too many or if iPhoto is just buggy but I don't trust it anymore. Is there a program like iPhoto (I love the faces part) that will store photos somewhere else besides my computer?
  12. I want to back up my photos somewhere outside of my house in case of fire, theft, or other disaster. I had carbonite but it was a pain and there were always problems. What do you do?
  13. I guess what I want to know is are AP exams and SAT Subject Tests interchangeable, or is it good to have both? My older boys only took AP exams but it has been a while!
  14. My son is taking the APUSH exam in May and I was wondering if he should also take the SAT subject test for US history. I am not really familiar with the SAT subject tests. Thanks.
