We have done Kumon math, which emphasizes repetition of basic skills for the early grades, as well as eclectic activities such as word problems, math games, and skill drills, for math the past two years.  We have also incorporated math organically into other subject areas, such as measuring, charting and graphing, using percents and fractions, etc.  This coming year, we are switching to Saxon for math and beginning a more structured math curriculum.  As such, I had S8 take their online placement exam to determine her level.  She missed only one problem in the K-3 placement, meaning she is right at grade level (3) for next year.
