  1. College Confidential's list has been going strong. Congratulations to everyone who qualified. Good luck with the deadlines and applications. :)
  2. College confidential is tracking responses. CA, MI, KY, and NY have posted so far. Post 730 was the last list updated that I saw. http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/national-merit-scholarships/1696275-class-of-2016-nmsf-nmf-qualifying-scores-p49.html
  3. Love it that he responded to my email! :) Unfortunately there are not any resources out there other than what can be found used. I've done pretty well and have 2 student editions, the test masters, and a teacher's manual. I think we'll pull through. I found that http://www.motherofdivinegrace.org/ has a syllabus for $10. But that was all. Thanks for your input. From Mr. Jacobs: Since receiving your previous email, I have been spending quite a bit of time looking to find some of the materials that I used in the classroom with the 2nd edition of Geometry (homework assignments, etc).
  4. Thank you. I may get that for DS#2 to use in a few years. Right now, I'm needing the Geometry 2nd edition transparencies. I've messaged that store to see if they might have them as well. Thank you for your help.
  5. Since they are out of print would be it be possible to copy them? I'd be willing to purchase them if you're interested in selling the originals or a copy if that would be legal.
  6. Does ANYONE have these? In particular, I'm looking for the Geometry (2nd edition) set, but I'd be thrilled with the Algebra ones as well. Does anyone have any suggestions on where to look for them? I've googled multiple times with no luck. Is there a way to contact the publisher or Mr. Jacobs himself?
  7. I'm working up a plan to use Hakim's Story of Science books this year as a "general science" curriculum for my 8th grader. He's not a science geek like his mom, but likes history (unlike his mom). ;) So, I'm trying this route to see IF there are any areas of science that might interest him. I'm hoping to cover all 3 books (of course not in complete detail) and do experiments along the way to illustrate the works of some of the scientists. Has anyone done anything similar to this? Are there any overview schedules out there for these books? Do you have an opinion on the books or th
  8. Moving this thread to Middle school board...... I'm working up a plan to use Hakim's Story of Science books this year as a "general science" curriculum for my 8th grader.

  9. Yes, I'm getting that idea from some replies I've gotten over on the Singapore board. They went REAL deep REAL quick on me. Going to have to get me a Coke Zero before I try to jump in with those ladies! :) Thank you for your link. I had not seen that, and hadn't given thought to going further in Singapore. But, sounds like there are options. Definitely the road less traveled though. The dressing from today was just the Kraft Raspberry Vinaigrette, but the one Teresa mentioned is called Hendrickson's. Really enjoyed our visit with you. We'll have to do it again very soon.
  10. This is being discussed on the Singapore Math forum as well. http://www.singaporemaths.com/forums/showthread.php?3235-NEM-gaps-3x3-and-graphical-interpretation&p=9101#poststop I agree the thinking before doing is why I like Singapore math so much. I was considering switching to Jacobs Algebra. I believe he has a similar approach. But you lose the interconnected approach. Can you tell me a little about the Discovery Math? What would some of the college math be that comes after NEM?
  11. I've used Singapore Math since 3rd grade for DS1 who is going into 8th grade now. He completed NEM1 last year and did well in it. We like the format. I was reading over some reviews recently and saw one on RR that I don't remember reading before. I'll quote it here: "Compared to Saxon, NEM begins introducing algebraic concepts earlier, generally includes more complex geometry problems, and covers more trigonometry. However, Saxon’s Algebra 2 course covers a wider variety of topics, including polar coordinates, imaginary and complex numbers, and logarithms. In Algebra 2, students mus
