i've completed some surveys online and the way they wean their participants out always strikes me as fascinating.

My older son refused to do Calculus and did AP Statistics instead.

I loved statistics. After this year (Trig), dd will have her choice of math classes for her jr and sr years .. .I'm hoping she chooses a Stats class.

i think A LOT comes down to how a teacher teaches math, more than any other subject too. i don't think my middle DD is programmed for math if there is such a thing, Lol. her struggles have always been trying to wrap her mind around the logic or the lack thereof in that subject and we'll be happy if she gets through school only finishing geomotry, she can worry about algebra later.

what strategies are in place for it? i'm less about labels and more about what works and what forms of action are in place!

My youngest is potty training, and as I clean up the poo that he just deposited on my living room floor, I'm struck with the similarities between taking care of a small child and taking care of a puppy.

Hopefully you can skip the "You just chewed up my favorite shoes!!!" stage. ;)
