Math is so much more about working a concept from different angles. I love how we revisit an idea from different vantages, solving the same problem in different ways. I think that sort of practical approach will pay off in the future. It is also great for building on successes of the past. New ideas are introduced gently instead of all at once. I remember my teachers introducing a new math in a way that was so intimidating that I felt panic if I didn't immediately understand. With the way we are going now Cordelia is easing from addition and subtraction into more advanced maths in a seamless manner.
Most of all I am happy with her history class! We are learning about the history of the world and not just European history. She has learned about different cultures and is drawing her own conclusions about commonalities between humans.
I love listening to her insights and seeing the world through her eyes.
