Jonibee Posted September 11, 2012 Share Posted September 11, 2012 Scenario: My dd has taken: grade 8: Saxon Algebra 1 grade 9: Saxon Algebra 2 grade 10: Saxon Advanced Math (finished 2/3 of book) This year, grade 11, she is enrolled in College Algebra online through the CC. I am so not impressed with this class -- another post for another time, but let me just say: Week 1- total work 40 problems. Week 2- total work 30 problems. Week 3- total work 16 problems. No dicussion board, no extra work. This takes her about 2 hours of time for the whole week. So far, 100%. Do I need to worry that she will be "losing ground" in this class? That is question #1. Question 2 -- What next? Is the sequence of college math: Algebra Trigonometry Pre-Calculus Calculus ?? She has the opportunity to take free online classes with the university (different school than above) for Pre-Calculus and Calculus 1-2-3. These are online with recorded video lectures. Any advice at all? She would rather complete a college class than an AP class at this point. Although she is very good at math and it seems easy for her, she does not "like" it and does not think she wants a college program centering around math. I think it's too soon to necessarily rule that out. But we (she) needs a plan for next semester -- thoughts? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
