dirty ethel rackham Posted July 6, 2009 Share Posted July 6, 2009 Ds15 is very good at science and will probably seek a career in science. He excelled in biology and chemistry. We are looking into what science to do next year. The usual sequence is physics. Our options are 1. Physics text at home and hire a tutor (probably a student at the local college) as a grader. 2. Take Physics at the local high school (he really does not want that, plus it messes with the rest of our schedule.) 3. Take physics through a quality online program. 4. Take some other science either from the local 4 year college or community college that will look stellar on a transcript. We are looking for secular options on the rigorous side. If we do the online program, does anyone have suggestions of a good distance learning program? I don't want a "here's the book and syllabus. Email your answers and I'll grade it" class (BTDT with Northwestern's GLL.) My requirements include having interaction with other students (either via class boards or a synchronous setting) and plenty of instructor interaction as well as being a good solid program.
