Colleen Posted May 26, 2009 Share Posted May 26, 2009 I am on the fence as to what my oldest (rising 9th grader) should do this next year for math. He is currently in Chapter 8 (of 9 chapters) in Lial's Intro Algebra. In general he's done well with the course, typically earning right around 90% on tests. For some reason I really can't put my finger on, though, I keep feeling like the material hasn't completely soaked in. He's a young 8th grader (not yet 14), and I kinda feel like I rushed him into algebra, but as I say, it's not that he's flat out struggled. I just don't want to march ahead to geometry unless he's really ready for it, kwim? This fall, he may take math through a local homeschool academy and I need to decide about classes fairly soon for registration purposes. If he repeats algebra, he'll use Jacobs Elementary Algebra this time around. Otherwise, he'll move on to geometry and use Jacobs Geometry. Any thoughts? Thanks!
