Thank you so much for your expertise in teaching this course! My girls have done wonderfully in math this year, and they just asked if I can be sure to get the videos for next year also. I also want to thank you for your emphasis on the spiritual component of math. This has meant so much to us, in that we try to keep the Lord in every aspect of our family life and education. My 12 year old is Kathryn also, and she really was touched with how you ended the course with "The Most Important Takeaway - It's Absolutely Absolute!" Math is Kate's favorite subject, and she understands it very easily. However, my older daughter who took this course is 13, and math does not make sense to her, so it is a tough subject. She has said this year, "Math is actually not that bad!" She has done very well on the review lessons to study for her last test and earned a 95.7 on her last math test! She was so excited! The real-life examples are what made a difference for her, to show her that math is useful and therefore good to learn.
We are loving the e-course! It’s really made a huge difference in our understanding of the math lessons. We look forward to seeing you everyday when we do school. May the Lord bless you for your hard work and diligence. Please know that we thank him for using your love of math and the way you have shared his creation; to help us learn and understand math like never before. Can’t wait to dive into book 2.
I wanted to thank you for creating the videos to go along with each lesson. My daughter has learned so much these past 2 levels!
We used Principles of Mathematics 1 and 2 for 6-8th grades. It started with a wonderful review of arithmetic and continued into pre-algebra, geometry, statistics, and finances (and more). The videos were easy for her to watch on her own and she was able to complete the worksheets with some minor help from me. I feel that she has made huge leaps in her math understanding. Things she used to struggle with she now gets easily and says they are easy.
We have enjoyed it so much that I recommend it to anyone who asks for middle school math suggestions.
The author was quick to respond when we asked questions or recommendations from her. So wonderful to have that support!
