  1. We are closing to finishing up AOPS PreAlgebra, which will have taken us about 14-15 months to complete. Currently we devote 1 day for each section's problems and 1 day for each section's exercises. Then several days are spent completing the end of chapter review and challenge problems. We spend 4 days of the week on AOPS and 1 day a week on competition test prep. I am writing because I'd like to have her working on calculus during or even before her senior year in high school. But looking ahead, there are 8 more textbooks and my dd will be entering 7th grade next year. I
  2. Hi All, We are embarking on our first real journey into AoPS this year after ds11 finished up TabletClass Pre-A a bit early. He is almost done with Chapter 1 which had been review for the most part except for fractional exponents. So far he likes how AoPS explains why things work as well as how. The question I have is where does the Algebra 1 portion (chapters 1-13) get especially difficult/challenging? I seem to recall reading about certain chapters or points along the way where a child feels like AoPS is just too hard, etc... And I just want to prepare for those a bit more in advance
  3. I love Right Start math, and feel like it gave my kids a great math foundation. But my younger son, who is 8, has advanced further in math than where we are in the book, just through learning math through every day life. So now Right Start feels slow and stilted. But I don't want there to be holes, so I'm not sure what to do. I ordered the Beast Academy and feel like he will like that, but they don't have them all out yet. So, I was just wondering, for math-y people, what do you like best before AoPS? I feel like this question has already been answered and I tried doing a search first, s
  4. Hi all, I don't post here as I don't have a high schooler but I thought this might be of interest aops courses are now accredited http://www.artofproblemsolving.com/School/faq.php#accreditation
  5. You can buy it from the AoPS website now.
  6. I am considering the above Geom. programs for my average math student 10th gr dd next year. We have done BJU Geom. DVDs before with two older daughters and we really liked it. However, I am intrigued by the AoPS videos we have used for algebra and prealg. viewing when we occasionally get "stuck". My going-into-8th grade son is finishing pre-algebra and ready to start Alg. 1 in 8th grade. Normally, as I have done with his older sisters, I would put him in 2year Videotext Alg. I & II for next 2 years. However, I could save some money and time - and make my life easier - if I put them
  7. ... this is for Button, who isn't the fastest writer but is perfectly WILLING to show his work. He can do the AoPS pre-algebra placement test, and we're about to wrap up SM 4B; he is extremely good with math concepts. I'll probably do the AoPS pre-A sooner or later with him, so could purchase the next round of SM and also the AoPS book; but I'm trying to spend carefully. Ideas? ... and thanks!
  8. Ok, I've have been wondering something about AoPS for quite some time now. How might some families use it in the non-traditional sense? In other words you use it as supplimental, non-Discovery, or partial discovery, etc... The reason I ask is that although I like the texts quite a bit, I'm just not sure it will work for my kids in its traditional way (Discovery) as a spine or not. I just got the Intro to Algebra today and am reviewing over it. So far I really like how it reads and flows, like a work of art almost. In the 'How to Use' section the author mentions something which strikes
  9. Is anyone using the texts, Art of Problem Solving Volumes 1 and 2, "Basics and Beyond?" How are you using it and for what ages, or what math grade level? I just received my copies, and am wondering how to incorporate it into our curriculum or whether I should wait until dd is older. She's 11 and working through the AOPS PreAlgebra text now.
  10. I've been using AoPS Prealgebra for about a month with my son. I have been well pleased with the curriculum, as it offers him the challenge that he needs. However, somehow I missed the fact that AoPS has free instructional videos on their website. Since starting to use them a few days ago, math is going so much smoother! I thought I'd post this for anyone else who may have missed these wonderful resources. They offer videos for Prealgebra, Algebra, Counting and Probability and Mathcounts/AMC.
  11. Oldest DS is using Pre-algebra this year, so I went on their site to try to figure out a math sequence for him for jr. high and high school. I noticed they have 9 books for those grades. Which do you use and how do you schedule them?
  12. I'm considering adding AoPS contest curriculum Volume 1: The Basics. I don't know if it would be helpful in ds's situation. I'm hesitant to switch to AoPS curriculum (algebra, geometry, etc) because he's not a huge fan of math. He thinks mathematically (which is hard to explain), but has hit a wall with algebra. I believe part of his problem is over thinking and a lack of caring at all about math. So he doesn't want challenging math, he needs better explanations of the why. He may be interested in a STEM career (probably the "T" portion), so I want to ensure he has good grounding in
  13. DS9 (10 next month) is currently flying through Singapore 6A. I think he has 5 exercises plus a review section left. He started it a month and a half ago. We don't really school through the summer, but I do plan to have him do a few minutes of math most days (largely because his younger brother needs to do math, and I don't want to deal with charges of unfairness). So it seems quite likely that he'll finish 6B by early fall, and I'll have to figure out what to do next. I thought I had already done this. I was all set to get Art of Problem Solving's pre-algebra when it comes out. I was very
  14. What is the pacing, how long for a chapter? Do u split sections? Or finish a section in one setting? Knowing it might be different for each section, please give example. Like.....Finish 3.1 in 1 day, 5.3 in 2 days... How muCh time for 1 day? Do you supplement anything? How long take u to go through Algebra 1 part? (chapter 13)
  15. Since SM is discontinuing NEM 3 & 4 what do you guys think about jumping into AoPS? Where would we begin in AoPS? What if it's not a good fit? I'm not Sure what NEM 3 & 4 S&S cover or if there is an equivalent in the Discovering Math series. Any input would help this mom out quite a bit...
  16. My kids are little and I would like to start early prepping myself to be able to teach them higher level maths. Does anyone have a review of the AoPS books that are not specific high school courses (vol. 1 the basics, vol. 2 and beyond) vs. Algebra, Geometry, Calc., etc.? Do they overlap? Or are they only for math competitors? Would you get the books that your dc may potentially use later? Is this question even making sense? I did well at math in school, but we rarely (make that never) finished textbooks/courses during the year, so I know there are huge gaps that I was never exposed to
  17. I'm not familiar with this abbreviation. What does it stand for?
  18. The Intro to Algebra came this week. We decided to use this book for Algebra 2 (email from AOPS said it is equivalent to an average Algebra 1 and ALgebra 2 book). Figured we will work through the first half fast so ds can get use to the way AOPS does things and review anything he might need review on. So I can get use to the book, I decided to work through it also. WOW! I am blown away. I am on ch. 3 and already am seeing different ways of looking at how to solve problems. It makes solving the problems so logical. Anyway I am hooked and want to work through this book and get the others to work
  19. Has anyone used AoPS for the discovery method approach but skipped the more challenging of the challenge problems? I am convinced that my ds would thrive with the method, however, I can't see taking hours out of a day to try solving one difficult problem. My thought was to present them, give him a chance to solve for a certain period of time and then helping him through it using the solutions manual. Either that or just skipping some of them altogether. Anyone else doing this? Will it ruin the whole approach if i spare him the most difficult problems?
  20. Hi, I'm new here. I didn't see any where for intros, so thought I'd just jump in. One of my kids, ET2, has recently started the current school year. So, I'm working on planning the next year. ET2 is doing a few different Math programs this year, that equate to a solid Pre-Algebra (and maybe a little more). One of the programs ET2 is doing is LOF. I think LOF will work well for this child and am hoping to use it as the main Math curriculum as of next year. We added it to the other Math ET2 was doing this year to see how well it works for ET2 and what ET2 thinks of it. So, I'm thinking
  21. Ok, so I keep coming back to this math program. I have posted before about my ds's issues with Algebra 1. We are using the Lial's text and thanks to Jann we have gotten over a major hump. However there is something I notice about him when he works a new lesson. He does not like to read the examples. He just wants to delve into the problem set and try and figure it out for himself. This makes me think that AoPS might be the math program for him. So..... we are finishing up chapter 6 of the Lials text this week. My plan was to have him finish Algebra 1 over the summer. Now I am wonderin
  22. I will be just starting to homeschool my 5th and 7th graders in August. Was planning to do Saxon Math - my boys did the placement test and fell in the 7/6 and 8/7 categories, respectively, although my 5th grader was just 2 questions shy of placing into the 8/7 himself. I've just come across the Art of Problem Solving website though, and it looks intriguing. Is anyone using this currently or used in the past (either their book courses or the online courses) to give feedback? Thanks!
  23. I know there are others working with the Prealgebra book, as well as a few others with DC in the Prealgebra 1/Prealgebra 2 classes so spill, what are you planning next? I continue to waiver. Currently I'm waiting on RR's recommendation for DD and her grade once it is released. DD is over the moon with the online class interaction so I am still seriously considering letting her do the online Algebra 1 class later this year. I saw how many of the videos currently up for Intro to Algebra are overlap from the Prealgebra ones so I will definately be keeping my eye on those as they finish them
  24. We're doing AOPS PreAlgebra at home, without the online class. I'm trying to figure out how to pace the book. Doing one section each day (1.2, 1.3, 1.4,...) seems too fast. We tried that in chapter one, and retention was not so good. Dd is in 5th grade and relatively mathy, as is Mom. I don't have her read and do the problems on her own. We read and work through them together at the white board. Then she does the exercises on her own, and we review them together at the white board. I am considering reviewing the problems at the start of a section on one day, then have the s
  25. I posted in the recent Art of Problem Solving thread, but thought maybe I should start a new one too. My 14 yo ds has hit a wall recently with Algebra (Jacobs). He's always been very intuitive in his approach to math, but has hated long problem sets (said they were boring, and he already understood how to work the problems). We did Singapore Primary, and he seemed to do very well. He's the kid I thought of as being "mathy". But, lately he's been struggling with Algebra. At first I thought it was just that it's harder and he's not used to having to work at math. It's not that he isn't pers
