Answers:I'm in seventh grade currently. First of all, are you transfering into a private school or a very advance one? If not, well, how to put this lightly. I have promised myself a billion times that I would study, but I never do. But I always do fine in tests as long as I concentrate. In my primary years, my school made us play this fun maths site where you compete with people all over the country. But if your school hasn't gave you your password, I'm pretty sure you have to pay. But here is the link anyway: http://www.mathletics.com.au/ OMG! The kid that has the highest points in the world is a kid that is in my primary!! Wow,..... About science, I've looked around, can't really find anything one it. So sorry :( But I hope that site helps!!
Answers:I have one child just finishing up his grade 6 science. We have used the Wonders of Creation series (www.answersingenesis.org) . He really likes it and the books themselves are beautiful, high quality texts that provoke thoughtful learning. I realize that doesn't really answer your question, but consider this: What is your child's learning style? what is your lifestyle? do you prefer workbooks or texts? What are your child's interests? If you really can't decide which to buy, and it doesn't matter to you, perhaps your child could decide. This would help him or her to have a sense of ownership in his education, possibly being a motivation. Do you have younger ones who will use the materials? Maybe nonconsumable is best for you. Are you a very busy mom? then workbooks might make your life a little easier. Personally, I think that at this age, workbooks aren't the answer, unless they are used only for one or two subjects. The student should be learning to take notes, write short papers on given topics, doing research on his own. Filling in blanks and multiple choice isn't really thoughtful learning - it's testing to find what they can remember. Sorry to not have answered your question directly. Hope I helped anyway!
