Chris in PA Posted July 7, 2009 Share Posted July 7, 2009 Hi all, My dd will be going into 11th grade this fall. Our math sequence has been as follows: 8th grade: Algebra 1 Saxon 9th grade: Algebra 2 Saxon (total struggle but we made it through) 10th grade: TT Geometry (felt she needed a separate geometry and she did well) 11th grade: We were planning precalculus either with Larson or TT. Here's the problem. I had her take the placement test for TT precalculus and she did horrible. Couldn't remember how to factor, solve systems of equations, use the quadratic formula. I don't know where to go from here. I realized that she was probably too young to do the Saxon Algebra 2 book when we were about half way through it. But we kept plugging along. Now I realize she retained virtually nothing. So..... should I repeat Algebra 2 in 11th grade? How would that look on her transcripts? I want her to have a firm foundation in algebra and right now she does not. I have the Lial's text on the shelf that we could use. I could then have her do precalc in 12th grade or a math at CC. I am feeling like such a failure at this point for pushing her and now am afraid I really messed things up. :001_unsure: Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
