  2. I listened to a very short but interesting TED talk by mathematics professor Arthur Benjamin called "Teach Statistics before Calculus!" Even before this I was thinking of adding P&S into our High School math plan. My son is very interested in practical applications of math in daily life and I find Probability and Statistics so practical. In addition there is so much more available to students now with Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCS) such as: Carnegie Mellon's Intro to Probability and Statistics Intro to Statistics - Making Decisions Based on Data Introduction to Statistics: De
  3. Once in a year I got math anxiety :) This year I'm worried about 'finishing in time'. So I wondered how long it takes to cover AoPS Intro to Algebra and / or LoF Trigonometry. In your answer I want to know, how much time you devoted to math per week, what was included ( using other material outside the book) what was skipped (challenge problems, chapters). And how many months you needed. Is LoF Trig a whole year or a semester book? (Or even less?) As dd is in the language track, she will have 3-4 hours math per week during grade 11/12. We won't have time for 6+ hours math per week. Thank
  4. We'd like to learn R programming to accompany high school statistics (FYI, we'll be using The Practice of Statistics 4th edition). I know that R would be highly useful as it's used a lot in colleges and the working work, at least in science, engineering, and data analysis, and it's free, but I don't have any recommendations for a way to learn it. There are lots of tutorials on using R, but I don't know where to begin (I haven't heard a lot of good things about the Coursera R course and it's $49). Does anyone know of a good tutorial for a high school student to get going with R alongside
  5. Any ideas or resources for the study of statisics and data analysis and R for high school?
  6. My son is a junior this year and is taking pre-calculus/trig. He is planning to major in Economics. I think he would most enjoy a year long AP Statistics class next year, however, I don't know if he "needs" calculus on his transcript. Another option is to take a semester of Calculus followed by a semester of Statistics at our local community college. Advice?? Ashley

  8. We are using a Prentice-Hall Algebra 2 (Bellman, et al) with our 12 year old, which is going fine, and I think it will go fine throughout the year. While we were using Jacobs Geometry, my DS read P-H Algebra 1 and did some problems as an algebra 1 review, so the P-H Algebra 2 approach was familiar. We like that both P-H algebra books show a lot of applications of the algebra being learned. I also like that it includes some data analysis and very basic statistics along the way, since that’s so important in real life and the science we’re planning next year. I also didn’t find a compel

  10. What is your favorite resource for teaching statistics? Why do you like it? I'll be teaching statistics to a very mathy boy soon.
  11. This is for my older who is doing 6th grade math. He has no issues with probability but has slight difficulty with the word problems for outliers/skewness and bias. He understands the concept of bell curve and skewness. Any recommendation for textbooks or workbooks to get more practice in wordy word problems for middle school? ETA Found these Glencoe California Algebra I Word Problem Practice (http://glencoe.mcgraw-hill.com/sites/0078778522/student_view0/student_workbooks.html) http://www.education.com/study-help/article/design-study-sampling-problems-ap-statistics/ ETA: I end u
  12. I was skimming through the archives of a yahoo list, and found a link to this study than includes statistics for low income and minority students. I had no idea how much better low income and minority students do when homeschooled, compared to those that go to PS. So often minority and low income moms, especially those with dismal educations of their own, and pennies to spend on curriculum, are encouraged to place their children in PS. It looks like the GREATEST gains are for the exact population that is most pressured to put their children in PS! This certainly played out in my boys'
  13. I just finished reading Dumbing Us down today. I read a startling statistic in that book that homeschooled children are 5 to 10 years ahead of their peers in public schools. The statistic is not documented (no reference). Do you know where I can find that statistic? Also, I had a conversation with one of my friend's moms. She mentioned that the United States is one of the only countries in the world that believes that we should wait until our child is 6-7 years old to teach children to read. That most countries start teaching their children to read at 2-3 years of age. I am a huge early
  14. I've been talking with my son quite a lot about the changes we're making to our homeschooling approach next year. As a result, we're tweaking what I had planned for math. Here's what I think he's going to do: - Art of Problem Solving: Intro to Counting and Probability - Quick introductory workbook about statistics - Unit about cryptology - Short unit based on the novel Flatland So, math people, what would you call this on the transcript I will inevitably eventually have to create?
  15. My daughter is on track to finish calculus well before the end of high school. She wants to study math in college, so obviously we want four years of math in high school, if not more. What do you do beyond calculus? I know there are a lot of possibilities ranging from Calculus II to number theory to probability and statistics and what not, and I figure she'll have her own opinion on it based on what in particular she is thinking about for college by that point. But as an English major mom I would love to get some ideas of what the possibilities are, especially as far as what texts you woul
  16. Using Saxon Advanced Math (pre-calculus) and planning on Saxon Calculus, Statistics (AP level) More advanced calculus (not sure if text, online, or at CC) What would be the best order?
  17. I am embarrassed to be asking these questions, but I really do not know the answers and I know you will. Ds, a junior, is leaning heavily toward humanities, specifically history or political science or perhaps journalism. He has finished math through geometry and Algebra 2. I'm considering letting him do statistics instead of trigonometry or precalculus. It seems like this would be more useful to him. Is there any reason I should reconsider this? Any other ideas? Does statistics count as a math course on a transcript? And how do colleges view a statistics course? Is it generally
  18. Why not stats earlier on?? I am toying with Stats for my dd13 who's wrapping up algebra -- for her to do this spring (7th gr) and into next year (8th). I'm in no rush for Geometry, PreCalc, Calc. . . and I thought Stats is really easy compared to calculus. . . so why not do it now, then go back to the geo/precalc/calc sequence in high school? Personally, I found Stats in college (and even in grad school) ridiculously simple. I got As both times (college and grad) and those were the two easiest classes I took in undergrad and grad. . . in fact, I never went to class except to take
  19. This was a course that interested my son looking at the Teaching Company offerings. When he did his career exploration course last year, it is also one of the fields he was most interested in. So here is what I have come up with for next year. Any thoughts? AP Statistics Course DVD Lectures: Meaning from Data: Statistics Made Clear by Michael Starbird Books- recommended by the course Textbook: Statistics: Concepts and Controversies 5th edition by David S Moore A Cartoon Guide to Statistics by Gonick, Larry and Woolcott Smith Full House: The Spread of Excelence from Plato to D
  20. Here is an interesting article from a Kansas paper that takes a look at some child safety statistics. It also illustrates why I would not call the police on parents who left a child in a car for a few minutes. http://www.kansascity.com/637/story/1372027.html You would have to leave your child alone for 750,000 years, statistically, for them to be kidnapped.
