“And thank you, God, that the 7th grade math will be delivered today.”

Such was the addendum Circuit provided to my lunchtime prayer yesterday.


During this school year, he already flew through 5th and 6th grade math—with an A.  I ordered 7th grade materials last Friday.  Circuit closely tracked his UPS shipment as it traveled from OK to IL, IN, OH, and finally MI.  Although it arrived after school yesterday, he flipped through the first several chapters last night.  Circuit anticipates that he can skip the lessons of the first several units.

In pajamas and robe, he completed Quiz 1 with only 1 error.  At 8:40 a.m!  Unusual, as we typically start school here at 9 a.m:)  Circuit rolled along into Quiz 2, where I asked him to pause.  There are other school subjects, after all!


Why the rush?  Circuit is impatient to move on to Algebra 1 as soon as possible—the interesting math.  I love my 11-year-old geek!

    Oh, that’s tempting to click through. I’d been planning to use this for Holly beginning this fall (9th grade). I’ve temporarily at least changed plans–she’ll be using Kiss My Math (yes, dumb name) this summer and we’re going to try Life of Fred for high school. We shall see. If Fred doesn’t work out, then we’ll switch to the more $$$ TT.

    I completely understand your hesitation about the $$$ of TT. I have to give myself a pep talk before I order each grade level because I’m such a cheap—I mean frugal—mom:)
    But, I’ve justified it since
    1) both kiddos can use them
    2) I should be able to resell them for a decent price
    and largely
    3) Button has drastically fewer “math fits” with this curriculum!!!!

    I’m glad that you’ve found a potential math program for Holly. Hope it works for her!

    I had looked at that math curriculum for high school and wondered if I should have given it a try, but I already have ALL Saxon and MUS math through Algebra 2. I couldn’t really justify another math curriculum (LOL). It looks really good though and if we ever run into a child that Saxon or MUS doesn’t work for then it’s the next one I’d be looking to buy!
