Coming to the end of MEP 6

Recommended Posts

My ds13 is about to finish MEP 6 and I'm imagining that I can jump him into MEP 10 like I've seen suggested in the MEP yahoogroup. Has anyone here done that? He's been doing MEP since year 2. He's strong in math and is chopping at the bit to get to some physics. I'm inclined to move him along quickly so that he'll have the prerequisite skills for physics.

 

Also, my dd 14 is a little way behind her brother and will probably be finishing MEP 6 by June or July. She finds math much more challenging so I was thinking of putting her through MEP 7, 8 and 9 just to solidify her skills. Does anyone have thoughts on this?

We stopped Mep in 6th due to the fact that the upper levels align more with the British system than we want so we moved to prealgebra after mep6.

I would think many kids could go straight to Algebra after MEP6.

We are just starting MEP 7 so can't comment too much, but I think it would be a good review for the student you felt could use it...

I think MEP has a ton of review in it already... with a student who wants to take physics and is 13, I would go ahead and then add in review as needed.

Doing math-based physics provides great review.

Yes they can but my kids were accelerated and we were starting AOPs prealgebra so there was no rush into algebra.

We haven't done that exact thing--though we have used some of the MEP upper-level material, and it's good. There are a few fun topics in MEP 7, 8, and 9 that aren't in 1-6, but there is also a lot of review there--going right to the high school stuff from 6 should be doable for a keen student.

 

I think your plan for both kids sounds like a really good one. One thing to keep in mind is that if you switched over to the American sequence instead of doing what you plan, it's tricky to get lined back up with Canadian curriculum, if you should ever need to do that for some reason (ask me how I know...sigh...). MEP is a lot more like our system of integrated maths, so it should ease that transition, should you ever need to make it.
