Her blog, The Hands-On Homeschooler, chronicles their homeschooling journey, while throwing in tidbits about life, reviews, and recipes. Prior to being a stay-at-home mom, Leann taught math at a public high school for high achieving students. She and her family currently reside in the middle Tennessee area.
KidCoder: Windows Programming is the first semester course of the “KidCoder” Visual Basic course-year (followed by KidCoder Game Programming), and teaches students in grades 6-8 how to write their own Windows programs using the industry-basic Visual Basic programming language. Students will learn about creating Windows screens, using data, making decisions, and handling user input. Chapters cover getting user input, working with numbers, program loops, functions, using the debugger, distributing programs, and more. Students will create a different program at the end of each chapter; and in the final chapter, students will demonstrate everything they’ve learned by writing a simple computer game.
No prior computer programming or HTML experience is required; the other year of KidCoder, the Web Design series, can be completed before or after this course. Course CD with set-up program is also included. 213 pages, indexed, softcover. Reproducible for personal use only. An optional Windows Programming Course Supplemental Instructional DVD is also available for this course.
Equal to one year of university physics course, this is advanced placement physics for the high school student who wishes to either major in a science-related field, or is intensely interested in the scientific realm of Physics!
This course provides detailed descriptions of kinematics, dynamics, rotational motion, gravity, oscillations, waves, optics, thermal physics, electrical forces, electrical potential, DC circuits, magnetic forces, atomic physics, and nuclear physics. Lessons are retained through “On your own” activities, charts illustrating concepts, examples, lab exercises, tests and more.
Prerequisites: One year of high school physics and a trigonometry course.
From counting to calculus and beyond, the Kumon Math Worksheets enable students to progress all the way up through high school-level math.
In this 36 week course, preschoolers will not only learn 12 basic character qualities, but see them applied in the everyday life of the Boyer cousins, people from the Bible and real people in American history. Qualities covered are Obedience, Patience, Honesty, Gratefulness, Responsibility, Respectfulness, Self-control, Initiative, Diligence, Kindness, Contentment, and Deference (sharing). It is very adaptable to your schedule and the individuality of your child. I LOVED the preschool years of my children. Hope you will too! My intention in writing this curriculum was to free you up and make it fun for both you and your children, stirring up that God-given love for learning!
