You took a relaxed approach to math when they were younger. Now high school is looming. Will they be prepared? Let's ask a high school physics teacher!

When you started homeschooling, you were all about a relaxed approach to math. Hands-on learning. Math in real life. But now you're starting down high school.

You wake up at night in a cold sweat. What if you put them in a traditional classroom for high school math or science and your lack of diligence is exposed? What if the high school co-op science teacher has to pull you aside and break the news that your kid just doesn't have the math background he needs?

My brother, Ryan Westcott, is a homeschool dad who taught physics for over a decade, both at a traditional high school and at a homeschool co-op. He's here to give us the facts on what's really required to get your homeschooler math-ready for high school!
