AnneJ Posted December 15, 2011 Share Posted December 15, 2011 DD is 14 and in 8th grade this year. She is doing Saxon Algebra 1 (she's a half way through it) and has only used Saxon for math. She's fairly bright and doesn't have any problems understanding the concept and rarely gets any problems wrong, and when they are wrong, it is usually because of a transcription error. The problem is that she HATES it. She told me today that she can't wait to be done with school (i.e. graduated) so that she doesn't have to do math anymore. So, I'm not sure what to do and could use some advice. I love math so I'm having a hard time understanding her hatred of it (I know, I know, she isn't me). So, do I make her continue with Saxon and try to have her work on her attitude? Or do I switch to something else? I want something that will adequately prepare her for college should she choose to go. I know that Saxon fits the bill for that. But she hates it. Any advice?
