HollyDay Posted January 5, 2011 Share Posted January 5, 2011 (edited) Dd is in 9th grade doing Saxon Algebra 1. She did lesson 50 today. Her test scores are okay, 88 is the lowest, 95 is the highest. She is doing rather well on the daily lessons. But, it routinely takes 2 or more hours a day to complete a lesson:eek: This cannot continue. I've narrowed our solutions down to 2: 1. do half lessons of Saxon. This will mean doing math year round. She would complete Algebra 1 either over the summer or early in her 10th grade year. IF algebra 2 also takes 2 years to complete, it will be difficult to get 4 math credits. I know Saxon combines geometry with the algebras, but she still needs 4 math credits total 2. switching to TT. She scored very well on the TT placement test. She could move at a faster pace with TT. But, dd does not like the computer based style of TT. She used TT for 7th and Pre-Algebra and asked to return to Saxon. She likes the "to the point" and continual review style of Saxon So, she prefers option 1. I suppose it is not a foregone conclusion that Saxon algebra 2 would also take 2 years. So, anyone BTDT or have any advice to share?
