HELP my Senior needs 1 more math credit....

Recommended Posts

We have BOTH algebra with LOF...equiv to Alg 1 and 2, MUS Geometry.... even though he did pretty good with LOF Algebra his MUS placement for Pre-Calc placed him back in Alg 2.  He says he's just rusty... he went back over the answers and he's still stumped at how they came to a few of the answers.  I don't know what to do now.... go ahead with Pre-Calc anyway and if we get stuck review the algebra?  I was looking into Consumer Math but they seem SO EASY.... and definitely NOT a challenge for him. 


His plans are a 2 yr degree in Computer Programming and one of the math classes he needs is Pre-Calc OR Quantative Literacy.... so even if he struggles with MUS pre-calc this year he will basically be repeating it in college and if he does well then he can take the OTHER math course offered.


Any advice? Suggestions?

do you have any suggestions for a thorough review online? We didn't keep the LOF books because I knew my younger 2 would not use them.


Unless he totally bombed, I would just use the problems missed on the placement test as your ways of finding topics to review. Don't do a thorough review of all of algebra 2.


For each topic, search for it on PatrickJMT.com and watch the videos.


Note that what goes in Algebra 2 versus Precalc does vary a bit based on curriculum vendor, so it is possible that he missed a topic that wasn't in LoF Algebra 2 but was in MUS Algebra 2.
