If you homeschool;
More specifically, if you homeschool young children;
Most specificast (my word, thanks) of all, if you homeschool a YOUNG GIRL who is very emotional; who is very TYPE-A;
Be advised of the following:
Do NOT change your curriculum mid year. It could prove to be detrimental to the health of the entire family. You will have to endure tears and tantrums daily.
She thinks she doesn't understand something that she learned LAST YEAR. Doing review.....in the new curriculum, Math-U-See, the equation 10 + K = 16 sent her over the edge. It did not matter that I put a BLANK where the K was. It did not matter that we used manipulatives. It did not matter that she knew this already. IT WAS A DIFFERENT WAY OF DOING THE PROBLEM. I am super excited, waiting in anticipation, wondering what it will be like for her to learn.........algebra.
Consider yourself warned.
