Description:
This course is done as a partnership with Dave Ramsey. We will use videos and online course content from their website, and homework will be completed on Dave Ramsey's system. Each student will be required to purchase access to Dave Ramsey's site for the video and course access. This is equivalent to purchasing a book in a typical course. No additional books are required beyond the online course and video access.
Students will be completing a budget, looking at their own personal finances during each chapter of this course. There are quizzes and exams that are automatically computerscored, as well as short essay assignments that will be scored by VHSG graders. In addition, there are worksheets and projects assigned and started in the live class on a weekly basis. These tasks must be checked for completion by the parent. Parents will find the assignment sheets, the worksheets and the answer keys on the VHSG Moodle site. For this reason, a parent must be enrolled in the VHSG course for each student enrolled in order to access these materials.
Cost:
There is no charge for the VHSG portion of the course.
VHSG is charged a bulk cost for offering the class. Actual cost per student will be determined once we know how many enroll. This cost will be split evenly between students. We estimate the cost per student will be somewhere between $10 and $40 for the year course, depending how many sign up.
The cost for the online course content and videos (required to take the course) will be determined upon enrollment completion. We need to purchase our bulk teaching package from Dave Ramsey at the end of April based on enrollment numbers, so please enroll in APRIL so we order enough seats.
Seating:
Payments will need to be received by August 15 in order to finalize enrollment.
Once we have the enrollment totals at the beginning of August, we will post the amount due along with the payment instructions. Each student will need to pay by August 15 to get access to the class page.
This copy of the course is a temporary seating page for enrollment purposes only. You will not be added to the final course page on Dave Ramsey's site until you have paid. Information on payment will be on the temporary course page after you enroll.

Description:
Age: High School (rigorous course)
36 week course, one meeting day a week
Introduction to Logic is a thorough course covering the basics of the topic. Students participating in this course should be prepared for fairly advanced thought concepts. There is a reasonable amount of reading in the text with a significant number of key terms and concepts covered. Online inclass lecture supports the text material. Students have the benefit of comprehension measurement tools (quizzes and tests). The rigorous nature of the course may suit high school students best.

Saxon 3, ed 1 is an exact match, other editions are fine too. On this one, go for a teacher's manual instead of the student text. There is too much the student text doesn't show and I want families to be able to track all the skills we are working on. Find it used HERE at Amazon.
Description:
Live online classes follow the Saxon Math 3 scope and sequence but the actual class time is filled with very gamelike activities in a mix of individual and group activities. Live class activity time is followed by online practice quizzes and a weekly assessment.

Finished attempts also offer the option to redo a another problem from the same question poole allowing lots of extra practice on problem types where the students feels they need extra practice. Multiple attempts are allowed but new questions are given on the new attempt instead of the same problem over and over.
Weekly tests have limited attempts to provide a true assessment of skills. If students are not satisfied with their first attempt, they may try one more time, but there will be no additional resets.

NOTE: Most students will take EITHER Saxon 87 OR Saxon Algebra 1/2, but not both. We do not yet have Saxon 87 built for VHSG, although it is in the plans for future years. It will not be done this year. It depends on how many volunteers step up to help on the math upgrades when we will be able to move Saxon 87 into active development.
Saxon 87 offers more review on basic arithmetic. If your student is still struggling with math, it may be best to use Saxon 87 to firm up the basics. Algebra 1/2 moves faster into introductory Algebra. Both courses are acceptable to use as a prealgebra course prior to using Algebra.

Saxon 87 offers more review on basic arithmetic. If your student is still struggling with math, it may be best to use Saxon 87 to firm up the basics. Algebra 1/2 moves faster into introductory Algebra. Both courses are acceptable to use as a prealgebra course prior to using Algebra.
A placement test is given below to help you determine where to place your student.

Description:
Lessons are recorded and often interactive in format.
The online homework assignments draw questions from a large poole of question of similar type. Students get immediate feedback as they work the problem both for specific answers that they try as well as general feedback hints. The last hint points them toward ways too get live help if they need it. Finished attempts also offer the option to redo a another problem from the same question poole allowing lots of extra practice on problem types where the students feels they need extra practice. Multiple attempts are allowed but new questions are given on the new attempt instead of the same problem over and over.
Weekly tests have limited attempts to provide a true assessment of skills. If students are not satisfied with their first attempt, they may try one more time, but there will be no additional resets. The score will be an average between the two attempts. (The second test will have different questions.) Feedback is given after the test is completed.
Open office hours are available for students that need help. Hours are posted on the home page and students get a link on their last hint that helps them know how to get extra help when they need it.
Grade: 79 (Depending on student)

NOTE: Integrated Geometry  By the time students get to the 20th lesson in the Advanced Math text and have been in the series since Algebra 1, they will be able to count 1 geometry credit. In order to do this, you must complete the second or third edition of both Saxon Algebra 1 and Saxon Algebra 2 and the second edition of Advanced Math. Newer editions of Saxon have split out the Geometry into a separate course, so this would not apply. VHSG uses the editions with the Integrated Geometry.

 You must own a copy of the Saxon Algebra 2 Student Text (Third Edition recommended)
Description:
NOTE: Integrated Geometry  By the time students get to the 20th lesson in the Advanced Math text and have been in the series since Algebra 1, they will be able to count 1 geometry credit. In order to do this, you must complete the second or third edition of both Saxon Algebra 1 and Saxon Algebra 2 and the second edition of Advanced Math. Newer editions of Saxon have split out the Geometry into a separate course, so this would not apply. VHSG uses the editions with the Integrated Geometry.
Lessons are recorded and often interactive in format.
The online homework assignments draw questions from a large poole of question of similar type. Students get immediate feedback as they work the problem both for specific answers that they try as well as general feedback hints. The last hint points them toward ways too get live help if they need it. Finished attempts also offer the option to redo a another problem from the same question poole allowing lots of extra practice on problem types where the students feels they need extra practice. Multiple attempts are allowed but new questions are given on the new attempt instead of the same problem over and over.
Weekly tests have limited attempts to provide a true assessment of skills. If students are not satisfied with their first attempt, they may try one more time, but there will be no additional resets. The score will be an average between the two attempts. (The second test will have different questions.) Feedback is given after the test is completed.
Open office hours are available for students that need help. Hours are posted on the home page and students get a link on their last hint that helps them know how to get extra help when they need it.
