  1. I have a couple of questions about Henle Latin. Could I s l o w l y start Henle Latin I with a 5th grader? Also, there are 4 levels of Henle, correct? If she worked thru the 4 levels throughout middle school, what would we do for high school Latin? One last question...if you used Henle, where did you buy it? Memoria Press? Thank-you for taking time to answer my questions!
  2. In perusing the Rainbow Science site, I was glad to read positive feedback from SWB. Specifically, she's quoted as having said here, "This is probably the best homeschool science curriculum I have seen." Yet I can't find any mention of or recommendation for the program in the latest, third edition of TWTM. Our of curiosity, does anyone know when or where she offered that opinion? Thanks!:)
  3. What kind of STEM careers are well suited to a big picture kind of a person? I am a STEM major, and I am a detail-oriented person. Ds16 has no idea what he wants to major in, but he definitely has my math gene. It is possible that he will be a STEM major but he is a big picture kind of guy. I honestly don't know if STEM careers are well suited to big picture people. :confused: I think some are, but I'd love to get other's ideas. I have a master's degree in Industrial Engineering with a specialization in Operations Research. Honestly, I think that might be well suited to a big picture kind of a person because some of the things I used OR for I struggled with because they were more big picture. Educated guess was really what was needed. I always wanted to be perfectly correct. :blush: Thanks!
  4. Which AP exams are most widely recognized by colleges in terms of getting college credits? There is a list at http://about.myedu.com/data-and-infographs/2011/3/22/top-10-ap-classes-most-widely-accepted-at-colleges-and-unive.html , but I don't know how they arrived at the numbers. My guess is that high scores on the older, single-discipline exams, such as calculus, physics, or U.S. History are more likely to earn credit than high scores on newer, inter-disciplinary subjects such as environment science of human geography. The College Board has online data on how many students take each exam, which is likely correlated to widely accepted the exam is accepted by colleges.
  5. I just had a long conversation at the ice rink with a professor from Princeton University. She has multiple connections in admissions at several universities. She confirmed for me that colleges and universities are now looking for students who have committed a significant amount of time to 1 or 2 activities. They are no longer impressed with a long string of AP test achievements and a long list of extracurriculars. They want to see that the student worked long and hard and persevered to take a particular interest to the highest level possible for the child, whether it be music, science, or whatever interest. Apparently colleges are having a huge crisis with students who either cannot handle time management, or try to do it all and then crash and burn and either have a mental health crisis or drop out completely. Admissions officers are thinking that a student who shows he or she knew how to choose where to focus will be more likely to succeed. She also feels that the whole 4H will hurt your transcript idea is not true, especially if 4H has given your child many opportunities to shine in areas of leadership, public speaking, marketing, event planning, research, etc. She said that would actually give kids an advantage over the typical high school student who just does not communicate well (according to admissions officers). This professor has had to think over and research a lot of these issues because her daughter takes a lot of time off from school to pursue figure skating. Now, I have no direct experience with admissions officers, so I cannot say that everything she told me is true, but I thought I'd share what I learned. It reinforces everything I've been reading lately. ETA: She also said that APs in science areas or foreign languages are more impressive to colleges than the more typical APs and they are more likely to actually award credit based on them.
  6. Yep, I'm really hating homeschooling high school . For years I've waited to HOmeschool high school. It was supposed to be fun, interesting, getting to know the soon to be adult I've invested all this time in. Instead, it's one continual did you get this done, where's this paper, where's this assignment.......nag nag nag. The idea to just drop everything is gaining quite a bit of ground in my mind. Doing classes to look good for college has taken over our whole mindset, not something we ever wanted. So I asked the freshman what he would do if I said just do the things you would like to do. Don't worry about anything, about getting into MIT(his goal) just do want you want. He thought it over and came back with this: Continue the following: Chang's chemistry with study for the AP test and the SAT subject test NASA Inspire project and do all the challenges and the team contests Latin 2 as he loves Latin his bible book Read the great books, read HOAW, but drop all the paper writing Programming Pre-cal Stop testing/grades and just let him master the material and test with the major overall test in the spring Pick up fun logic/puzzle stuff just to do Build computer junk Drop the following: Spanish Paper writing/English Everything related to history and English but the readings How could I do this and still give a competitive transcript for college? His writing stinks and does need work but I could let it revolve completely around science instead of writing in lit or history. But I have to show for the state that he had subjects in lit and composition. He does his math and science and latin without an issue but fights the writing assignments. The thought of letting him unschool high school is really at the top of my mind but I'm stuck with the mindset of we have to show all these classes to get into college. But we are really hating the current set up. If he loves the subject, he'll do the work and do it well without any issues. So part of me feels he should do work he doesn't like. Then the other part of me says that's exactly why I despised high school and everything connected to it. I hated most of it and was bored to tears. I wanted the high school years to be full of delight and doing what they were interested in. But we're here now and the act of getting them into college is worrisome if we go off the typical tract. Any thoughts???
  7. I'm looking ahead and looking at AoPS. Right now I'm thinking about my oldest who is not particularly mathy. I'm wondering if anyone can comment on whether the following possible sequence is thorough "enough". Ideally, I would love to see him doing the pre-algebra book in 6th grade, but if his math education ends up looking like the following, is that going to look bad or incomplete to most? Grade 7 - pre-algebra Grade 8 - start intro to algebra Grade 9 - finish intro to algebra; do counting/probability or number theory if we finish early Grade 10 - geometry Grade 11 - intermediate algebra Grade 12 - pre-calc I guess I feel like most people here want their child to do calculus in grade 12, but is doing pre-calc in grade 12 considered behind or lacking?
  8. On another thread, Moira mentioned that her highschool daughters were able to move into Henle 2 after completing unit 7 of Henle 1. Sure enough, I read the intro to Henle 2 and it supports that. (Apparently only the "high ability" Latin students finished all of Henle 1 their freshman year. "Regular" classes were satisfied to complete unit 7.) When I compare the lessons in Henle 2 with the lessons we'd miss out of Henle 1, units 8-14, I can see where most of the essential grammar is covered in Henle 2 (although perhaps not as "in depth"?) Is there an advantage to taking a second year to complete Henle 1, so as to get a "very thorough" mastery of Latin grammar? Or do others recommend moving on to Henle 2, because it's more rewarding to read Caesar (and the others) and learn grammar to go along with that? (My ds will be in 10th grade.) If we were to start Henle 2 after Henle 1/unit 7, I would do lessons 1-16, then begin the Caesar readings keyed to lessons 17-28 ("The Helvetian drive to the west" and "Revolt along the seacoast" and "The first invasion of Britain"). Is that the best approach? Finally, what do I do with the other readings at the beginning of Henle 2 that aren't keyed to the lessons (e.g. "The German Peril" and "Danger in the Alps")? Just read them? Are the translations in the answer key? Does anyone have a schedule for Henle 2? I'd love to see it. TIA, Cindy
