Well, they had to jump through hoops wiggle, step right, jump back and run around the building the way they taught them AND they were not allowed to do it the easy way either - even with a right answer, it would be marked off.

I don't have words to describe their current curriculum. It's ridiculous. My dh has a degree in physics, and he couldn't make head nor tails out if the 5th grade math methods.Meg B.http://www.blogger.com/profile/09871105973774159424noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-4218568831965507385.post-33426669142624396042017-05-15T20:40:12.254-05:002017-05-15T20:40:12.254-05:00We are Saxon Fans.

So far, so good, but I do cut the number of problems down. 15 to 16 per day plus the lesson practice. I will be glad when the math curriculum is over!Jenniferhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/02863887265545701157noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-4218568831965507385.post-18712558734561822792017-05-15T20:38:58.303-05:002017-05-15T20:38:58.303-05:00Yep!

Actually, she works on math during her final period at PS. (No way I am driving 25 miles to get one kid home 56 minutes early.) She sits in the disciplinary room, and breaks open her math. One day, she was stuck, and asked the proctor for help. In any case, word got out, and that curriculum is quite the talk of the faculty. She was told to ask me if I would allow them to look at all the books. Maybe, just maybe, this may move our school from the nonsensical math...Meg B.http://www.blogger.com/profile/09871105973774159424noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-4218568831965507385.post-81238460791955023602017-05-15T16:46:07.385-05:002017-05-15T16:46:07.385-05:00Yay for some normalcy!
