I went online to join the MUS Forum but it’s down:( Could some of you share about how long Geometry takes per day? I’m really torn for next year. My daughter will be a freshman and ready for Geometry. Our coop uses Saxon. I’d love to pass off upper level math. She’d be there anyway for other classes and cost is reasonable. But I love MUS and am afraid Saxon may eat up more time than I’d like. Current students are spending 50 min in class one day, plus about 1 1/2 hrs. the other 4 days for Saxon Algebra.
We’re pressing on through Algebra…it’s the only subject she really needs my help with(pretty much daily and sometimes stressful but not too bad). She had an ‘A.’ I’m afraid of getting in over my head and if she does the coop she can also take Algebra II and Advanced Math there. I’d love to hear how long MUS Geometry takes (approx.), and any opinions on Saxon and what you’d do:) Thx! GinaBookwormParticipant
There isn’t a “time” MUS takes per day. Since it is mastery based, there’s no schedule to follow. You’d simply work at whatever your particular child’s attention level is, and do that per day. My own kids on most days spend about 30-45 minutes on high school level MUS per day.MistyParticipant
Bookworm could you comment a bit more on this same topic a bit. Sorry Momto2 not trying to hijack.
My son is finishing up Algebra 1 and I’m not sure if I should go onto geometry or just finish and move to Algebra 2. What are your thoughts. I was thinking how it might be nice to just continue while he’s still most days understanding Algebra. Thanksmomto2blessingsParticipant
Thanks. I know it varies but was trying to get a general idea:)
No problem Misty!BookwormParticipant
Misty, Algebra II has more complicated concepts. I know of some people that prefer doing both algebras together, but we did it with geometry between. One good thing is that many kids who don’t care for algebra tend to do better in geometry. Success in between can be a good thing. (I, myself, am better at algebra LOL) One thing that also helped us is that we did a science program that was pretty math heavy that year, so my kids get lots of algebra practice doing chemistry or whatever they are at that year they do geometry. Makes it pretty easy to keep up the algebra skills. Just my opinion, I hear a lot of different opinions on the MUS forums and the collegebound forums.MistyParticipant
thanks i will pray about it as i agree a bit of a success between might be nice!
