    Hi Angela, This does help! Thank You! From what I saw online it almost seemed to be too good to be true! My son will start algebra 1 and as I said before- Math is not my thing! I showed it to him and he thinks it will be fine! I will be ordering it soon. I am now looking for a grammar curriculum, did...

  • Re: new to homeschooling...HELP!
