Mandamom Posted June 9, 2009 Share Posted June 9, 2009 I need some opinions. I have a soon to be 9th grader, soon to be 7th grader and soon to be 6th grader that I will be working with (as a tutor). Homeschool mom really wants me to help her in getting her kids caught up, particularly the oldest, to about where they should be and is interested in ideas and recommendations. None of the three know how to add, subtract, mutliply or divide fractions and mixed numbers or decimals. They don't know area and volume and other basic concepts. They also struggle with two digit multiplication and long division concepts. Here's my idea... I will work with the 3 several times per week on multiplication and division concepts and practice fractions and decimals. But given that I only have limited time with them also have them each go through the Keys to...fractions, decimals, measurement and percents (the youngest will move slower than her older brothers) and aim for the oldest to possibly finish the books by the end of the summer. In addition, have each of them go through something like a Math Minute program completing 1 worksheet per day, which should take about 10 minutes per day at most. This would cover additional concepts they need (area, volume and additional fractions, etc). At the end of summer, re-test and have them take a placement test into a complete homeschool program like CLE or A Beka maybe or even Saxon which is what they are currently using. Does that sound like too much? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
