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?

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!
