    SC Math

    I've been thinking about this curriculum and math lately. I plan on this being my son's curriculum until graduation. He will be starting level 3 in the fall,so he will be doing Rod and Staff level 2 for the next 2 years (which for him will be great). But it has made me curious as to how far in math this curriculum plans to go. Will it be typical for them to do 1 level over 2 years for the duration of the levels? Is there a plan to get them to algebra and geometry eventually? It's hard for me to picture my son doing that high level of math since he struggles so much, but I'm hoping he will eventually get there. I would love to know what the plans/goals for math and Simply Classical students are.
    Thanks

    Re: SC Math

    Thanks, Jessica. Yes, we have an Arithmetic & Mathematics scope & sequence (attached).

    Beginning with level 5-6, everyone will have the option of teaching SC in two-year or one-year accelerated paces, depending on the needs of the SC student.

    This allows for two scenarios:

    1. The student who needs the steady pace of one level per year might be able to master arithmetic. This includes, as the attached scope & sequence portrays, money, time, measurement, introductory geometry, and more. By Level 12, this student completes R&S 6. This might be at graduation age, or it might be prior to graduation age, depending on when he began and the pace he needs. If this is prior to graduation age, he progresses to more advanced mathematics or learns to manage daily application, or both.

    2. The student who completes Level 12 prior to graduation, whether due to an early start or an accelerated pace, may then progress to algebra, geometry, and beyond, if able.

    We now have a full SC Curriculum Overview Guide for Readiness A, B, C through SC 12. This week our Sodalitas attendees received these. I will see whether the guides can be made available to help with such planning.

        Bummer. For some reason when I click on the link on my computer it just brings up a bunch of gibberish. I can't figure out how to get it on my phone.

          I was able to get the link to come up on my phone, but when I click on it it does the same thing as my computer. It's just a bunch of symbols and letters.

            Ditto. Perhaps it can be converted into a PDF?

              Anita and Jessica,

              This a DOCX file, used by Word 2007 onward. When I'm back in the office on Monday, I will convert it to a PDF for you all. If you want to try to open it sooner, here's some information on how to view, edit, and convert a DOCX file: https://www.lifewire.com/docx-file-2620750

              HTH!

                Can we all just give a rousing, group cheer and applause to our super hero Michael trying to trouble-shoot and provide over-the-top customer service on a Saturday night from home? Is this guy for real? (I can attest to the fact that he's very much like this in real life, in real time.)

                Michael, you have perfected the art of customer service. Back in the 90s when I worked for Prudential (in another life) managing corporate marketing, brand, training/development, we would often hold up The Ritz Carlton as a standard to live by. After this last week, I'm convinced that Memoria Press is the Ritz Carlton of Classical Education. And it's because of people like you (and Paul, and Tanya, and the two Ryans, and Brian, and Leigh, and Michelle, and Dayna, and Deanette, and ......)

                Bless you, Michael....

                  I downloaded it and opened it when she posted it so I thought I'd convert to pdf and post in case it helps anyone.

                    We might have these available in handy bound packets, like the ones Sodalitas attendees received. If so, you will receive the Latin scope & sequence, full SC Curriculum Overview, and more. (In the meantime, I will not attach docx!) Thanks-

                          Did you find ljallen44's attachment? She (Laura) attached a pdf that should pull up as far more readable than mine!
