Mrs. Barnosky’s Teaching Pre-Calculus!

~ Pre-Calculus ~ I am so excited to be teaching Pre-Calculus at My Fun Science next year! “. . . Pre-Calc isn’t about forced word problems— it’s about real, hands-on application across amazing content areas. We will build a solid foundation for practical STEM applications, mathematical thought, and college-level study as we explore topics from Trigonometry, Polynomials, and Radical Equations to Conic Sections, Statistics, and Calc

Coupon and Clarification

Oops! A Clarification : ) Have you ever sent and email and then thought “Hmmm… What was I missing?” while starting off into space? Yesterday’s email wasn’t super-clear: My decision not to teach with Bright Ideas Press only affects next year’s classes. This semester, and the summer, is being 100% independently taught and will not be affected at all. I’m so sorry for inadvertently causing any conc

Hard Choices… But Right Ones

My not-so-bright idea : ( [Note: This is solely in reference to 2017-2018 school year enrollments. This semester will not be at all affected by this change.] This morning I terminated my Independent Contractor agreement with Bright Ideas Press. I know that this is sudden and inconvenient, and I will do my level best to make things right with you. The teachers at Bright Ideas Press are amazing… but, in the end, it just wasn’t

Bits, Bobs, and the First Day of Spring

Registration Updates <   >  We are almost, but not quite, at the minimum registration numbers for both summer classes: Economics and Informal Logic. Sign up today! <   >  After much soul-searching, I have decided to drop Consumer Math from my course offerings for 2017-2018. While I do have a passion for teaching students to apply mathematics in their everyday lives, I have been unable to find a curriculum that accomplishes t

Registration… Round Three!

As you’ve probably already hear, pre-registration has opened with Bright Ideas Press. . . Huzzah! (I’m so sorry for this (slightly) delayed notice. I was waiting for contract confirmation and battling our local flu at the same time.) Bright Ideas Press has put together a detailed letter to explain the registration process. The highlights include: 1. You pre-register now, paying $35 for your family and choosing your classes.

Registration… Round Two!

Registration… Round Two! In just hours (maybe minutes) registration will officially be open at My Fun Science. I am so excited to be offering Algebra 2, Geometry, and Formal Logic with them next year! I will be teaching “mastery” based math classes. Students have the opportunity to really learn the different aspects of a single topic before moving on. They’re still doing several lessons each week, but the lessons

Registration. . . . Round One!

Registration… Round One! I offer the classes I teach independently at “tiered” pricing. That means that I ask you to be honest about what you can afford to pay. If God’s in charge of your budget, totally ask Him : ) Then simply choose your price level. If you’ve been blessed and can afford to pay more, great. If you have eight kids and one of them just totaled your car, well, you might need to pay the small
