    Need Help.

    Can the 6A MP Science (Trees and Tiner) be called Life Science and 7A MP Science (Tiner) be called Earth Science in the student's transcript/ report card? Also, are these MP Science classes enough to prepare for High School? Thanks so much for any help.

    Welcome, Aragorn!
    Here's the sequence of MP used at Highlands Latin for science: http://thelatinschool.org/academics/science/
    As you can see the trajectory will, provided the student travels well through each level one year at a time, put them on track for AP Biology or AP Physics their senior year, if desired. I will leave space for someone MP to comment on your other question about transcripts. Our state (TN) and my umbrella (HomeLife Academy) don't require much at all in the way of formal reporting until credits and high school roll around.
    Best to you!

      Thanks for your response. So you would consider the accelerated path Sciences to be enough or are you planning to use another science book for Life Science and Earth Science?

      Thanks.

        We are currently on the accelerated path and I do not plan to vary from the MP suggestions. We are currently in 6A and I've found the choices to be a perfect mix of challenge and mastery opportunity thus far. There is an epic thread on upper level science which I'll try to link below if I can find it. I do plan to have upper level math and science taught in a tutorial context, but using MP materials. A friend and I are starting a local MP tutorial for just this sort of thing when it arises in a few years.

          It's quite meaty, but perhaps it will be perfect for you!

            Did this adequately answer your question, or were you looking for guidance in naming courses for transcript purposes? I wanted to bump this back up to make sure you got what you needed.

              Thanks for the link. It was very helpful. In fact, I've got a plan for the 6th and 7th grade now. We are gonna skip Tiner, and use Novare.

              Thanks so much!
