I was wondering if anyone has tried the GPS LoveMath program? I have the free summer subscription from Homeschoolbuyers and am looking over it, when I discovered a huge error in one of their teaching samples on fractions. ( I reported it). I know published books often have errors, and they do send out correction sheets...however, this caught me as odd that this one is so obvious and it hasn't been fixed yet. I am wondering what else may be wrong in the program? A family I know will homeschool their child soon. She has used Abeka 3 for math, but I am not sure this is the best option for her. It seems Abeka doesn't have much in the way of reinforcing their new skill, yet does a tremendous amount of review on previous skills. This girl was not solid in a great deal of the skills, and being ADD, I feel she would do better with a different curriculum. (too much writing in Abeka). I have thought about Teaching Textbooks. Perhaps an online program to help relieve the parents of too many 'new' subjects to teach during their first year with her. Or if anyone has successfully used GPS LoveMath and could give me feedback, I would appreciate it! Thank you...
Hi All, I have been wondering for some time now how the WTMA math courses have been going? Yet the silence is almost deafening. Maybe I missed the memo? :D While they are still relatively new, I have been a little surprised with the lack of comments. I sort of chalk it up to a) folks not wanting to say something which might offend (e.g. had some issues) or b) not wanting seem overly excited about something which may come off as disingenuous. So, I decided to simply ask outright for some honest feedback. Knowing the thoughtfulness of this group, I would expect those sharing their real experiences to be sincere. I'm sure Susan wouldn't mind hearing both praise and constructive criticism. I'll start out with being honest regarding my take on the offerings. We are not fans of Saxon. So, that leaves us with AoPS/Singapore courses. Those I find interesting for 'some' kids. Ds went through AoPS Intro to Algebra before WTMA had courses and it was his most challenging course. I realized then that their advertising was correct. AoPS is definitely 'not' for every student. In fact, it is probably not the right fit for most students due to the level of challenge and difficulty built-in by design. So, for our younger dds, I'm not sure there would be a fit for them at the WTMA. For ds14, he is already beyond the scope of their current offerings. But still, I can't help but wonder how things are going for other families?
