Melissa B Posted September 7, 2012 Share Posted September 7, 2012 I am looking for a math program for dd that struggles in math, but needs a very solid college prep math program. Of all my children, she is the worst at taking direction/instruction from me. She works slowly and (I feel) still doesn't have a solid grasp of the basics. I think she is willing to put in the time needed to progress, I just need a good program. I was thinking Chalkdust. We could begin with Basic Math this year (7th) and work through one level per year, taking whatever amount of time needed to work at that pace. She really loves science (especially chemistry/physics) and we are both frustrated in that her math skills are holding her back. She plans to dual enroll (part time) for the last two years of high school and is truly looking forward to taking a college science class each semester. I've watched the video demonstrations online (as has she) and they seem to me to be very thorough yet clear. Chalkdust seems to have a good reputation. So basically, would Chalkdust work for a struggling, but determined student? Or are there other programs I can consider? What she has used in the past: 1st-5th: Singapore 1-4A (with IP and CWP) + some Saxon 6th - Saxon 65, LOF Fractions, Key to Fractions 7th - currently planned, but struggling - Saxon 76, LOF Decimals, Key to Decimals Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
