Mommyfaithe Posted June 18, 2012 Share Posted June 18, 2012 Ok...my kids believe Jimmy Buffett when he sings "Math Sucks!"....however, we still need to do math .... Now for the ?? Dd is beginning 9 th grade. She is only 1/2 Way through CLE 700. Not for lack of doing math....daily....every day....since she was 4!! We used Miquon, BJU, some singapore, my own fun math stuff, and worked through CLE levels 400 - 705ish .... We are starting high school no matter what this fall. She is academically reedy across the board....sans math. She reads and writes well above grade level...and is ready to begin Rhetoric level studies... Then there is MATH!!!! How would you remediate her?? NYS only requires 2 math credits to graduate...so I have thisbyear to get her ready for Algebra. She will NOT be spending the larger part of her day facing Math...that would cause me to have one depressed, rebellious teen on my hands. I need something very focused...no fluff....no extras, But to the point, GET IT DONE Algebra Readiness. We will not be doing the most rigorous Algebra program. This kid does not NEED it. My job, where this one is concerned, is to open the door to math, introduce the concepts, get her ready for SAT's and send her on her merry way to CC where she can continue maths or NOT according to her degree program....which is looking more and more Arts based. Anyway, our math saga continues.....and advice on getting her ready to approach Algebra?? I know she needs more help with fractions, decimals, percentages, and equations where she needs to do opposite operations. I am taking this week to order her materials...and this is the last subject I need for this year.... So, please...your best recommendations for remediating towards Algebra in one year.
