Matryoshka Posted January 9, 2012 Share Posted January 9, 2012 So, my dd11 who has always liked and been good at math, and has always loved Singapore, is just finishing 6a. She had also been doing CWP. She didn't want to do the CWP much of the time, so I suggested that she try Alcumus as a supplement instead. Now she only wants to do Alcumus and doesn't want to do Singapore at all anymore. I told her that Alcumus is a supplement, not a course, and that she could switch to AoPS if she wanted to (I already own their Algebra and Geometry books, but don't have Prealgebra), but that she'd have to do the actual books. She looked at them and said she like them (but she said she liked Singapore DM better when she looked earlier :glare:). I have a feeling she will peter out on the AoPS books too once she realizes that they are going to require work. I'm thinking maybe the online classes are the answer? It's not that I don't think she can do the work; she's just lazy, or maybe it's just that she needs more interaction. She always loves doing the lesson with me, and the self-taught part of the AoPS books on their own I think will not be so good. She loves doing anything on the computer. Should I just sign her up? I know they're fast-paced, but I think she may just rise to the challenge if she's got peers and a teacher and it's on the computer. Feedback from those BTDT?
