My 11 1/2 ds took achievement testing this year and I got the results in a few days ago. His scores in math were low (I knew they would be), and he scored at at below average for 5th grade. I was thinking of putting him in Saxon Math in the fall and this morning he took the placement test. According to that he would begin in Saxon 5/4.

There is a very real possibility he will be going to a local christian school starting in the 9th grade. So this gives us three years to get him up to grade level. Can anyone point me in the right direction for how to go about doing this?

I appreciate all advice!

Deanna


I don't think you can go wrong with Saxon. He'd finish 76 by the time he went to school, which would make him ready for just about anything.

If he's willing, he could work through the summers and possibly finish Math 87, which is the current pre-algebra, and he'd certainly be ready for algebra.

I haven't read all the posts, so this may have already been recommended. Have you looked into Kathryn Stouts "Maximum Math"?

Her website states: The ultimate guide to teaching math in K- 8. Now you can fill in gaps or allow students to progress as far as ability allows. Teaching strategies provide you with ideas for working with all learning styles to promote understanding of concepts and increase problem solving ability. Graded objectives conform to NTCM standards and are arranged to allow you to follow an objective over several grades. Activities are provided for initial instruction. Just add a few manipulatives to teach grades K-2. Supplement grades 3-8 with practice problems using software, workbooks, texts, kits, and/or games.

Too bad this isn't a sticky!


I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us. ~Phil 3:13-14~
