"Can I teach
high school science?
As your student gets older,
your role changes from
teacher to fellow learner."
Math, Science and Logic tend to be the topics of dread in most home education circles. I would however like to encourage you to approach them with interest and enthusiasm. Your children will adopt your attitude as you introduce them to subjects. These subjects have the ability to become your most inspiring and encouraging ones ever. Remember you are laying the foundational attitudes towards these subject disciplines in the junior years. What you sow now you shall reap in the highschool years ...
- We will play with Pattern Blocks and work our way through Patternables and Pattern Block Cards.
- We shall completeExploring Arithmetic 3 by Rod and Staff before switching over to Teaching Textbooks.
- CalcuLadder 1 and 2 These are part of the Learning Vitamins series. I love these math drill work packs.
A little word on scope and sequence as this is important to consider when changing the math program you are using. Scope refers to the content. In other words these are the topics covered(A to Z)
Sequence is the order in which the scope is taught (IE the order in which things are covered within the program)
It is important to know this about your math product or you might end up redoing math your child is already familiar with or you might end up skipping a whole lot of important content that your child needs in order to succeed at math.
