apanamamama (61)7 years agoI took Calculus in high school as a senior - in 1996. It helped me to pass the AP test and receive 3 hours of credit for college math. Sadly, 1996 was the last time I had math. But the good thing is I homeschool my kids so I'll get to see it all again at some point. And my husband is good at math which is good. I enjoy it as well.

hansenator (57)7 years agoHey apanamamama! Love the name btw. Haha. That's awesome! I love Calc. How old are your kids?

apanamamama (61)7 years agoMy oldest is turning 9 on Monday and the youngest is 2 (with three more in between). :) So we have a little time before Calculus starts. We are still working on just plain old adding and subtracting. :)

hansenator (57)7 years agoWell... Good luck! My high school kids still have problems with it. It's like they were never taught. 11th grade. Embarrassing! Don't let this happen to your kids. It seems you will be fine though. A good mama. Haha. Use a number line!
