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!
