  1. My daughter is in WHA Geometry as well. I agree that it is fast paced but She is very motivated. She hates to use the discussion board as well. But discussion board is where you can ask help for homework. If your ds does 45 mins everyday, she should be able to catch up. My Dd loves geometry. She thinks it is fun. Mine attends online on Tuesday and Thursday. Would you like me to PM my contact info? Maybe they can be study buddies? This is till early. If you help her catch up she should be able to pull through this and you can review in summer. Hang in there is my humble opinion.
  2. DD second year online classes: WHA geometry with Mrs. Smith WTMA physics Mrs. Nallakumar WTMA history story of Middle Ages Integritas academy ( Mrs. Cindy Lange) writing Clrc intermediate Latin She is in love with all her classes. Teachers are extremely helpful. Each course is rigorous.
  3. Well, the level 7 does say that it starts as a review from previous levels and ramps up. Hmm.... Now I am worried after reading the posts here. This child has pretty good grasp of grammar and I don't want her to sail through the rest without a challenge....
  4. I use Level 7 language arts with my 6th grader. She loves it. Very independent. We started with Ananlytical but she wanted something pleasant. Definitely lacks in writing but she does an online class. So i didn't bother much about it. Not sure if it will change for her.
  5. My Dd is like that and has two sports. She drives people nuts if not busy. She is very athletic and tomboyish though.
  6. CLE Algebra came in yesterday. I got it for a Friend's DS. I am really surprised at how thorough it is. It has extemely clear steps, spiral review and good word problems. You can supplement it with Forester word problems or Zacarro's if you want to add more. But It looks pretty sufficient.
  7. My DD used Jacobs through Veritas and it is a thorough program. It is discovery based. I have foresters and We do word problems from that. Out of the two, I highly recommend Foresters for its clear step by step explanations. Very doable. Jacobs not so much explanations. You learn doing the problem set.
  8. I revamped some of it... Math: WHA Geometry ( Review Algebra with Foresters word problems and CLE Algebra), AMC 8 prep with Math tutor Science: Wtma physics with Engineering class at the coop History: WTMA Middle Ages Lit and comp: Integritas Academy with Mrs. Lange ( extremely excited about it) Grammar: Analytical grammar Vocab: Baron's SAT words and Vocab from classical roots Latin: Clrc Spanish: College spanish with tutor Logic: art of argument, mindbenders, anologies, critical thinking Music: piano lessons continue Art: Art memory competition ( art and artists history) Coding: youthcode academy Cnn student news, science news, lots of biographies and free reading and audio books Sports: Fencing, Horseback riding Exams/competitons: PSIA ( UIL for private schools in Texas)Math, Vocab and art memory, AMC 8, National Spanish exam She wants to start a literature club for kids in the neighborhood. Depends on our schedule.. And above is subject to changeðŸ˜
  9. I spoke to Mrs. Lange today and what an amazing person! I am on a fence between two providers now. So want to enroll my daughter in Mrs. Lange's academy. She sounds like a wonderful wonderful teacher.
  10. My daughter will be there as well for your chemistry course if you start one in 2018-2019. Jetta, I cannot tell you how grateful I am for your help when I was in the fence about your physics course. You stirred me in the right direction. I knew then and there what an amazing person you are...
  11. Hi, Since WTMA logic stage physics is new and filled up pretty quickly, I am guessing lot of us from hive signed up. Can we check In here for fun? My dd is in Sec 3.
  12. Phew! Thank you so much. I almost signed up for WWS1 class. She is a STEM kid as well. And taking Too many math classes and science outside of online as well. I am so glad that you replied.
  13. Hi, In my clrc search, I kept running your posts on multiple threads. I saw that your son has taken intro to clrc and WWS 2 at the same time. Did you feel that clrc didn't hVe enough writing? Was it too much? My daughter is taking physics with wtma and geometry with WHA. I am worried that she might not have enough writing now.
  14. Ok. I like the syllabus which the teacher emailed me. Thank you so much. Will go ahead and enroll her.
  15. Hi, She is 11 years old but working mostly at highschool level. She is in Veritas lit 6 class and doing really good. I do want a class that includes lit and writing. I am also looking at WHA language arts 3 class. I had concerns and I couldn't get reply from the teacher. Also no one picks up the phone ever in WHA. It makes me nervous. I really like the looks of Clrc. She has taken 1.5 live lessons not sure about 2 hours. Is Grammar enough or should I supplement it? Thank you so much for the reply.
  16. Hi hive, Has anyone taken introduction to comp and lit from clrc online classes? If so 1. How effective are they in writing? If I enroll, this will be my DD's only writing and lit classes 2. Can kids see the instructors' face and/or chat on the boxes and use microphone? 3. How is the workload? 4. Is There any grammar instruction? If so how much grammar? Thank you so much veteran parents!
  17. AOPS won't appeal to everyone as well. My daughter loves it but I don't. Depends on each kid.
  18. We did MM 1-6 and moved on to Jacobs Algebra through Veritas online class and it has been great. Dd is doing Geometry next year through WHA while reviewing Algebra with Aops and Foresters. I would say she has a strong grasp of Algebra already. We are very happy with Jacobs.
