  2. Passing along. Didn't see this shared here. Looks very interesting! MIT Primes/ Art of Problem Solving Crowd Math
  3. Hello Ladies, I was wondering if there are any users of the Art of Problem Solving Prealgebra on this forum. I am getting ready to start my son (7th grader) on it. I am not sure how much would be reasonable to assign every day. I see that there are 15 chapters in the book so about two week per chapter would take about 30 weeks, leaving enough margin. Is this reasonable? How much time did your student spend doing the lesson each day? Any daily schedules that can be found some where? Thanks a lot!
  4. Do you think these courses (esp. the algebra and geometry) would qualify as Honors level courses? DS (8th) is using the Geometry right now and I've decided to go back to the algebra 1 text to use as a quick review before ACT testing. He used LOF Beginning Algebra in 7th, AoPS Geometry in 8th, and we will finish up the AoPS Alg. 1 in 9th (we will get about 1/4 of it done by the end of this year). I expect he will move quickly through Alg. 1. Since Alg. 1 will be a 9th grade course, I will be putting it on his transcript (unless that's a bad idea?) and we will follow with AoPS Alg. 2
  5. DD9 is on track to finish MM 5B sometime this fall. My current plan is to have her work through 6A and B and then move into AOPS prealgebra, but it seems I have heard some people skip MM6. I'm not in a hurry, but I am curious to know if there are things in MM6 that need to be covered before prealgebra or if the program is redundant at that point.
  6. 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
  7. SO... I have a non-mathy kid (not my own) who is successfully using and loving AOPS. He loves math and is very bright overall but not what I would call mathy. AOPS takes him longer then it probably should (more time per day and more days overall), but he really enjoys it and is understanding everything perfectly. I tried AOPS as a last-ditch effort (after trying approx. 8,000 other math currics) and it WORKS! This is making me rethink the way I approach AOPS. I don't think it's a program for mathy kids. I think it's a program for a certain type of thinker who is *usually* mathy but not always
  8. Ds is currently in 8th grade. He's a very strong math student and is finishing up honors algebra 2 right now. In looking to the next four years, I can see great value in *not* rushing into precalculus and AP calculus in 9th and 10th grades. I have no doubt that he would handle the work just fine -- but then what? Yes, he could take statistics or head to a university to take linear algebra, but... I'm thinking that taking 9th grade to do a year of discrete math with AoPS might actually be more valuable to his ultimate depth of understanding. But there are so many books! Do we go fo
  9. Anyone using Art of Problem Solving texts as a supplement? What are you using and how?
  10. As implied by the title:), I'm looking for schedules for Art of Problem Solving vol 1 and/or AoPS Intro to Algebra, similar to the schedules put out by Core Foundations, My Father's World, or Donna Young. We have been so spoiled having these handy schedules to map things out by day -- yes I can do one myself but I really don't want to reinvent the wheel if it's out there. Otherwise I suppose I could just have my son do one lesson in each book each day and not make a schedule at all? He is currently doing an online AoPS problem solving class that ends in 3 weeks. Then I'm plann
  11. I have a ds who is really good with math and getting bored... I used Lial Introductory Algebra this year and am planning to use Jacob's Geometry next year. I just encountered AoPS--sounds like it may be good for him, but I wanted some input on that program. How is it different from Lial and Jacob's?
  12. All thoughts welcome. I'm down to one 3 weeks to decide. They both look GREAT. TONS of up-sides. Down-sides to AOPS: New...limited background info, not many moms to discuss it. Down-sides to NEM: Need to stick with it throughout h.s. Doesn't define the terms, so the vocabulary in college would be new Every time I say it, I hear Dorothy in my head saying, "Auntie Em! Auntie Em!" Or is it possible to do both?
  13. What's it like? What kind of kidddo would enjoy this? Ages and stages? Cost? Pros and cons? I see this mentioned a good bit, so I'm wondering what's the scoop!?!
  14. We're a mathy family here, so I'm feeling kind of like a failure here, but I closed the book today and said, "Enough." My math-loving son was diligently struggling through hours of math a day and getting nowhere. It took nearly two months to get through two chapters and I know he couldn't pass any review tests. He understands algebra, but this is....different. My husband and I are struggling to understand half of the problems ourselves...and this is our *thing*, ya know? I haven't heard a negative word about AoPS yet, so it's kind of embarrassing to admit, but I just do not "get" som
  15. Does anyone have experience with the math from the Art of Problem Solving website? I am considering using it for Algebra and up. I have the knowledge to teach up to calculus, as I have recently taken those classes at the community college level and did well in them. I am just looking for reviews of the program to see what other people thought.
  16. A bit of a happy braggishy thing. :) My dd, just turned 12, is loving the AoPS Number Theory book. She adamantly refused to do LOF Pre-Alg/Bio this summer, so I told her she had to do something, and this is what she picked. She just finished Singapore 6b - I wasn't really sure if she could handle it, but I'd been feeling this year like I'd been holding her back for her twin's sake, and figured we could take it slow if we needed to. She is doing great with it - we'll get about 1/2way through this summer; we'd plan to finish it for next summer's math. I did tell her she could skip the challenge
  17. For anyone who has had a 7th grader or younger complete AOPS's Intro to Algebra as part of homeschool, is it realistic to expect to cover the whole thing in a year if you don't do it 5 days a week? My family's kind of swamped this year and I can only provide "class" instruction for math three times a week. (In fact, has anyone made a schedule or syllabus I can reference for realistic daily goals?) I'm also wondering about how much your students self-taught, and how you handled the challenge problems. My inclination is to require the non-starred problems and make the starred problems extra
  18. After reading some old threads along with the responses I've gotten, as well as recent threads, I am even MORE confused about what to do with my son for the rest of his math. I was thinking MUS, then worried the Geometry might not be as thorough as he needs (he's thinking of architecture). I considered Jacob's, but am not sure about the learning style, and I was concerned about the lack of teacher support materials. I went to the AoPS site and was really impressed, but wonder if I can teach this without any video support. (then I see the Salman Kahn site and think maybe I can use those exp
  19. Do you have to do the online classes or can you purchase the books and work through them yourself? Is there any support if you don't take the online class? Are the texts thorough? I tend to LOVE video courses and the like because they make me feel better, but these look and sound great based on some past discussions I read.
  20. My dd is 13, going into 8th. We're considering Algebra 1 for this summer with AoPS. I'm wondering when the AoPS classes potentially are not a good fit. She did fine with the placement test, fwiw. I wouldn't even be considering it if she wasn't already a highly motivated academically oriented kiddo to begin with. But I wonder if it's possibly too much, too fast? Would it possibly be better to just wait till fall and have her do Lial's and use the summer to do some prep work for that, like maybe Keys to Algebra? Or might she love it and by not signing her up I'm not giving her an opportunity
  21. How does the Classic series fit into the Introduction/Intermediate structure? I don't see the Classic series on the recommendations page. I'm getting ready to order a few Intro books, and I'm wondering if the Classics books would be beneficial, too, or if there would be overlap. TIA!
  22. I'm considering the Art of Problem Solving Algebra I class for the fall. I have read many rave reviews about the other AoPS classes (Number Theory, Counting & Prob, Geometry, etc.) but would really appreciate feedback from anyone who has specifically completed the Algebra 1 class. I've heard the class moves quickly. Do you feel your child has received a solid Algebra foundation? Or did you supplement AoPS with something else? TIA!
  23. Does anyone have any experience with the Art of Problem Solving online classes? I am considering the Algebra I class for my son who is a slightly above-average math student. Any opinions?
  24. We are currently using AoPS Intro to Algebra with my 13 yo. We both are enjoying it, but I am wondering how long others spend on daily lessons. My ds spends about 30 minutes daily, then we review, then done. Sometimes this seems as though he could be moving a little faster, as the online class (which we are not taking) moves much faster than this. Thanks.
  25. Could this be done (or at least part of it) by a kid who's finished Singapore 6b? I'm looking for something for her to do over the summer that's 'different'. My dd looked at the samples and likes it. She hates LOF - too much story - she wants "just the facts". She's been really enjoying math lately. Singapore Intensive Practice or something like that would be 'more of the same' (we already have CWP). I'm not necessarily looking for her to finish it over the summer, just something for her to work on that will tickle her brain. After the summer, she could just use it on the side as a supplemen
