Thinkwell Math 8: Thinkwell's 8th Grade Math (Prealgebra) is an online homeschool course designed to give your child the reasoning and computational skills they will need to succeed in high school Algebra. Our 300+ video lessons by award-winning mathematician and college professor Dr. Edward Burger provide a path for the best foundation for success in Algebra 1. Automatically graded exercises provide the practice your student needs to understand algebra.

Pandia Press: Real Science Odyssey Astronomy, Level 2: REAL Science Odyssey Astronomy 2 has been created specifically for home and small group use. The course assumes no science background for teacher or student, and there’s no need for an expensive laboratory. Astronomy 2 uses natural settings that encourage students to explore the world and the sky around them. The materials needed for labs and activities are common activities like night sky drawing and commonly found items; though you’re welcome to purchase The Stargazer’s Notebook for the ideal instruction manual, planner, journal, and cosmos laboratory all-in-one.

Pandia Press: History Odyssey Early Modern, Level 2: From the Stuart Dynasty to Lewis and Clark, Early Modern level two is a complete one-year curriculum guide that combines history with literature, world geography, and writing activities. Students study events from early modern history, a time of nationalism and revolution: scientific, agricultural, industrial, French, and American. It was also a time of civil war and rebellion: English, Spanish, Scottish, Russian, and American. And it was a time of advancement and expansion: the Age of Reason, Galileo, Lewis and Clark, East India Trading Company, Mercantilism, and the Enlightenment. This comprehensive course covers success and failures of civilizations in Early Modern history from all parts of the world. Early Modern level two is a student guide that provides step by step lessons to teach world history from 1600 to 1850. Level 2 History Odyssey guides are written to be used independently by students with the parent/teacher assisting when necessary with lessons and assessing the student’s completed work. Early Modern level two does not require an answer key due to the subjectivity of the assignments that encourage critical thinking (i.e. there is rarely any one correct answer).  Answer keys to map work are found in the main spine (The Kingfisher History Encyclopedia). A rubric is provided to assist in grading essay writing. Literature and writing instructions and assignments found in the course include advanced outlining of history readings, attribution of sources, How to Write a Biography, How to Write an Essay, persuasive writing, creating a storyboard, literary analysis, creating a character web, and identifying elements of an epic.
