thowell Posted August 23, 2012 Share Posted August 23, 2012 So dd12 started math through our Florida Virtual school this year. I had hoped this was going to be a good option for her. She used Systematic Mathematics last year and while she did ok it was a struggle. I work in the afternoons so only have from about 8-12 to school both her and dd9. I thought this would help free up our time since she has all the lessons online and a teacher to help her. Big Mistake!!! She has a D in the class right now. She just made 12 out of 20 on today's assignment. Now please understand that it is not because the work is too hard for her. She is not applying herself and trying. I did the first several lessons with her when she started school and showed her how to take notes and do the practice problems. She is not doing this! She sits watches the lesson and then when she submits the assignment she scores low because she really isn't learning it. The bigger problem is because I am not doing it with her if she doesn't understand it I cant help her and have to watch the lesson myself. This is sometimes an hour. At this rate I would just rather teach her myself so at least I can help her when she is having trouble. She spent over an hour on her lesson today, did not take notes, did not do the practice problems and then makes 12 out of 20. She at this point if I do pull her and just teach her myself I have no idea where to go. This is the same child who is happily doing Abeka 10th grade Biology this year and has dreams of going to med school. That means she needs higher math! I have no idea what to do! Ay advice, opinions, or suggestions would be great!!! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
