  1. She found you explanation very helpful! Thank you ?
  2. The page doesn't exist when I click the link. I will check the Table of Contents in our book instead of the index. We also have the Steward book so I will look for it there too. My daughter is in chapter 2 so there must be a different way to solve it... Thank you for pointing us the right way!
  3. Yes there should be parenthesis ? I will go back and correct it. I checked the index in the book for "L'Hospital" and couldn't find the term. I will try to google it. How would you do it? Thank you!
  4. We do ? We are using: Calculus of a Single Variable (8e) by Larson, Hostertler and Edwards I found a "Syllabus" online from a high school teacher and I adapted it (cut the number of problems to 30-35). You are welcome to use the one I created. Just let me know if you want it, and I will pm you with it.
  5. My dd is learning Calculus using Larson (w/Dana Mosley's instruction DVDs). She is pretty good at figuring out where she made a mistake using the solutions manual. She can't figure out this one: lim (x®0) [ 1-cos x] /sin x = lim (x®0) [x/sin x] [1-cos x/x] = (1)(0)= 0 She thinks it should be undefined : [0/0] [(1-1)/0] = unidefined I can't always help her when she gets stuck as it has been 30 years since I last did calculus in college ? Anyway, do you have a website where she could go to ask for help? or if someone is good at this can you please let us know how this was solved. Thank you!
  6. We haven't gotten a letter yet, but I called their office today and dd has qualified ? They said that if we don't get a letter by October 1st to call back for a replacement letter. If anybody else is awaiting confirmation, you may want to call them: 866-545-8467 Congratulations to all the Hispanic children who qualified!!

Just google "College Confidential + National Hispanic Scholar."
  8. I am not too concerned, just waiting. My oldest got National Hispanic Scholar four years ago. This second child was invited to apply and we did. The invitation said they would send notifications in September. It is my understanding that if a student has the PSAT scores, applies, and he/she is of Hispanic heritage it is a given they will receive the honor. I just checked College Confidential again, and the latest posting (today) said College Board was planning to send notices next week. College Confidential also has lists of schools with generous scholarships for National Hispanic Scholars (If you don't have a list yet). I am glad you found out early through ? Congratulations!
  9. Congratulations! We are waiting for ours (my daughter's) ? Someone on the CollegeConfidential board posted that they had called the College Board, and they had been told that notices would not be sent until the end of September...
  10. I was just in the K-8 board One of the moms is sharing what she put together (readers + movies to go with it+ a syllabus): the readers are for younger kids but the movies would be good for high school too.
  11. When we used these series, we didn't use the Teacher's Guides. We covered all the books using: We didn't use the following, but you may want to look at it: with study guides here: My kids loved these books.
