Seshet Posted June 17, 2012 Share Posted June 17, 2012 Hi, I'm new here. I didn't see any where for intros, so thought I'd just jump in. One of my kids, ET2, has recently started the current school year. So, I'm working on planning the next year. ET2 is doing a few different Math programs this year, that equate to a solid Pre-Algebra (and maybe a little more). One of the programs ET2 is doing is LOF. I think LOF will work well for this child and am hoping to use it as the main Math curriculum as of next year. We added it to the other Math ET2 was doing this year to see how well it works for ET2 and what ET2 thinks of it. So, I'm thinking LOF Beginning & Advanced Algebra next year as the main focus. I was also thinking of adding AoPS Intro to Algebra & Intro to Number Theory as a supplement, for ET2 to have fun with. ET2 is a very 'mathy' kid - is great at it and really loves doing Math. I don't really have any doubts that ET2 will be ready to handle the level of work next year. I'm just wondering if anyone here has combined these two programs, and how it worked for them. Is it important to go through AoPS in order, or can you skip around? If LOF doesn't seem to be a good fit as ET2's main Math curriculum, I may use AoPS as the main & LOF as the supplement (since ET2 is already in love with LOF and would not want to give it up completely).
