Where did the time go? I am homeschooling a high schooler. :)

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Time flies when you're having fun.  I can't believe my baby would be going into high school this year (if she went to school).  Recently I started to feel the pressure of teaching a high school student.  Will I enable her to learn everything she needs to know?  Will I prepare her for college?  How will she do on entrance exams?  Am I worrying to much?  Not enough?  

 

Does anyone have any words of wisdom for teaching chemistry, algebra 2 or geometry?  She wants to be a nurse some day so I know she needs to have at least a basic understanding of these things....  SOS!  :)

I guess it depends:  what have you been using for math so far and how has she done with it?  Life of Fred is awesome but not traditional.

 

And for science, I understand that Apologia is SIGNIFICANTLY less in-your-face religious at the high school level and actually top notch for content and experience.  I've been trying to use them at the elementary level and it's been a challenge. But I haven't actually seen the upper levels--I'm going on what people have said (you can search this forum--I get a lot of feedback on it here).  Otherwise I'm at a loss for high school stuff.

 

Hope this helps!  And CONGRATS!
