Tim began his high school years while we still lived in Florida. We tried the Florida Virtual School for his Algebra 1 class, because I really needed someone else to teach him. It was too hard for him to keep up that pace, though. After that, we borrowed VideoText from a friend, which wasn't really a "good fit" for him, either.
I really don't remember what we tried after that, for him. We did use Stewardship Math from Math-U-See, also something we borrowed from a friend. Again, I was thankful for a program with video instruction. Tim also began his first job midway through his junior year of high school, which gave him hands-on experience in handling finances.
If you have a student who isn't much in to math, but enjoys reading (voraciously, like Jen and Botanist Boy), Life of Fred is a good choice. Well, at least it was for Jen. Botanist Boy ended up asking for Math-U-See, to have the video aspect. CTC Math is also a good program, for those of us who need to turn high school math instruction over to someone else.
Still, what I really wish is that I could find a live person to help my kids with their math.
How do you handle math instruction for your homeschooled high schooler?
