LisaKinVA Posted March 13, 2012 Share Posted March 13, 2012 (edited) I think this got buried a little in a previous thread, but it will probably affect what curriculum I use for Science. My son is starting high school level science (my dd will begin next year). I wasn't planning to include any of the science (or math, really) on their high school transcripts...because I figured it would be unnecessary. My thinking is if their high school math courses begin with Algebra II, that colleges would "assume" the prior courses (I may go ahead and list Geometry, Intro to Counting/Probability & Intro to Number Theory...because those may *not* be assumed) And, that was also my thinking with Science as well. My son will begin 9th with Physics (not calculus based), then do either an AP-level Biology course at home (through an on-line school), or take Biology 101/102 at the community college with a lab, followed by Chemistry with a lab (also at CC), and Physics (calculus based at the CC), and one or two others. I also found CK-12 with their engineering courses and nano-tech courses, and I could see throwing those in as well (he really loves that stuff). Am I wrong to think that leaving "off" the basic HS courses from his transcript will be fine? That there will be more than enough "proof" of learning if he's taking most of his science classes at the CC? Do you think they would "care" about Bio he took in 7th, or Chem in 8th? Thank you.
