Math and Science Classes for Homeschooled Students


23 Mar

 

My husband came across this site. How, I have no idea, but I thought I’d share it with others. It might be of interest to someone out there.

This site offers Math and Science classes for homeschooled students. There are on-site classes for those in the Atlanta area, and online classes for others.

Here are the online classes they offer:

Classes Offered
Math       Science
Pre Algebra Physical Science
Algebra 1
Geometry
Algebra 2 Physics
Pre Calculus
AP Calculus AB

 

There’s a $15 registration fee and then it’s $58 a month. The class can be spread out for as short or as long as you (or your student) want it to be. There are also textbook and workbook fees, which depend on the class you’re taking.

Here is where the online class information is: http://derekowens.com/onlineclasses.php

Like I said, I’ve never even heard of this, so, no, we haven’t tried it out, nor have I heard any reviews on it. It never hurts to know about more resources for classes out there, though.

 

 

 

FREE: HTML 101 for Kids


25 May

Do your kids like the computer? The Internet? Do they want to be able to design their own web pages? Do you want to use your children’s love of computers to actually have them learn something rather than just mindlessly websurfing or playing games? This upcoming class may be your chance!

Offered by a fellow homeschooling parent, this free class in basic HTML will give your children the chance to learn the basic HTML tags and the fundamentals of Web Design.

I can’t tell you how the class actually is at this point in time, but I just signed up my son and we will see how it goes.

The upcoming class starts Monday, June 2, 2014, and another one starts on Tuesday, July 8, 2014. There’s also a link to learn more about future classes if now is just not the right time.

Here is also some basic info (basically taken from his site):

– It’s open to students 9-years-old and older

– Some familiarity with a keyboard is valuable

– It’s a FREE “Beta” class, and feedback on the class is desired.

 

There’s no “set time” when your child has to be on the computer to do this, so it’s just something for them to work on and do when they can over the time period given. Hey, it’s better than hearing the classic, “I’m booooooored” or “There’s nothing to dooooooooooo” and will keep their minds alert this summer.

Happy Coding!
