profmom Posted January 5, 2012 Share Posted January 5, 2012 (edited) Ok, so, we're in our 2nd year of math at The Potter's School. Last year dd wasn't able to take the extra problem solving (practice & Q&A) session, but this year both older kids are enrolled in the math class and the problem solving class. Pros: dd really likes her teacher, reviews of "Chicago Math" say it's a very strong program, TPS math classes continue up through calculus. Also, it's easier to take all online classes at the same place because the class times line up. (Ie: one online company's classes run from 8:45 - 10:15 and another's run from 10:00 - 11:00, so a student can't take both.) Cons: only one session of math instruction per week (90 minutes) -- difficult for our kids to be able to do each day's math without a parent going over each individual lesson again. Once a week isn't enough for them, even if they attend the optional additional session for Q&A. So...I'm open to other sources of math instruction, online or otherwise. What works for your family? I just looked at liveonlinemath, as recommended in the online classes thread. I noticed he only goes through Algebra II. What would we do after that? It could be difficult to transition back to TPS after leaving the Chicago Math they use (placement test required). (??)
