ILiveInFlipFlops Posted March 8, 2018 Share Posted March 8, 2018 To make a very long story short, my oldest (9th grade) is very behind in math (intense anxiety, depression, and ADHD, recently diagnosed and treatment started). Now that we're treating the underlying issues, she's starting to make real progress and is motivated to learn, but we are way behind. She's only about halfway through the old Dolciani Pre-Algebra (which we really like), but at the rate we're going...we're just not going to get enough in for high school, and she definitely won't be where she needs to be in time to start chemistry or be well-prepared for SAT/ACT etc. I just came across a comment on another group that mentioned that VideoText Algebra covers pre-A, Algebra 1, and Algebra 2. Is that true? And does it cover all three effectively and completely?! I've been fantasizing about something like that but never really thought it existed. I'm kind of :blink: at the idea. DD is good at math in that she's not really a natural problem solver, but once she learns a concept, she doesn't forget it. Could VideoText be a real option for us? And if not, does anyone else have other recommendations for how to proceed? Other than working through the summers to gain ground (which we'll already be doing), are there ways to make up for some lost time here? Thank you!
