Anyone use My Homeschool Math Class?

Recommended Posts

Hello, 

i was wondering if anyone has used My Homeschool Math class for their teen? I’m thinking of signing my son up for the geometry class, but I would love to hear if anyone has experiences to share. Thanks so much!

We had great experiences with it for Algebra 1 and Geometry. The Algebra 2 class was not sufficient to prepare my dd well for precalculus (she got an A in Algebra 2 and found it quite easy), and she followed it with another Algebra 2 class when she saw how much more was covered in the other class. I have no regrets about it for Algebra 1 and Geometry, though. And if I had a kid that only needed math through Algebra 2, this would work for us.

Those are run by WTMer Jann in TX, and she gets great reviews on these boards every year!

We only took the algebra 2 class and found this to be true. My daughter was not ready for precalc.

I have my second child enrolled in the geometry class this year.  DS needs to focus on writing this year, so we are taking a break from WHA.  The Holt book (with the honors option) is sufficient for our needs in geometry.

We are following a similar path with my Dd, taking Geometry locally instead of at WHA.

My DS did Pre-A and is enrolled in Algebra. It has worked well for him, so we’re hoping for another good math year. Likes: live, online; clear expectations on homework; access to teacher if extra help is needed. Dislikes: none so far!

My son used it for Alg 2 and Pre-Calc. He loved myhsmc and thanks me for signing him up for it! He learned solid study skills in addition to the actual math.

He is a rising college sophomore and I would say that he was well-prepared ...but you may interpret this differently.

After he was accepted to his college, in the spring of 12th grade, he took a math placement test. He missed placement into Calc 1 by one point. He was annoyed because he knew that if he had taken the same test about 6 weeks later he would have done better, but it was too late. He took Pre-Calc over the summer and aced it with an A+. And we were both pleased after he took the class, as he got used to the college atmosphere and made a few friends.

He took Calc 1 fall semester, Calc 2 spring semester, and just finished Calc 3 this summer. He got an A in all three classes. He found Calculus fascinating, and a little challenging in the best kind of way. He's torn between majoring in Engineering and double majoring in Physics and Music

I would say not for the child going into stem majors.  My son took one year I believe it was Algebra and it was just not where we needed it to be.  He enjoyed the class but it just didn't cover what it needed.  I think the year he took it there were some kids really behind and so they had to keep reviewing which just didn't work for us.
