Right Start Math, Level H: Continue to learn middle school mathematics hands-on and visually using a geometric approach. Using a drawing board, T-square, triangles, compass, and goniometer, the student continues to work with fractions and decimals while investigating volume, tessellations, fractals, ratios, angles, and other geometry concepts. Trigonometry is introduced along with platonic solids, 3-dimensional figures, surface area, patterning, and plane symmetry. Connections between various aspects and branches of mathematics are explored. Pre-algebraic concepts are included. The history of mathematics is woven throughout the lessons. Daily card games are included in the lessons. Students work independently. This level is a continuation of topics from RS2 Level G.
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.
