Quoting Quiverfull: Terrifying Homeschooling

by Kris Bales from her blog Weird, Unsocialized Homeschoolers – 10 Things You Should Know About Homeschool Moms

Algebra terrifies us.

Okay, I know there are those math nuts out there shouting at their computer screens right now. I don’t understand you. I’m speaking for the math-phobic camp now. Algebra terrifies us. Or maybe it’s chemistry. Or physics. Or trigonometry.

Those upper-level math and science courses can strike fear in the hearts of many a homeschooling mom, but there are lots of ways to homeschool high school and make sure our kids learn what  they need to know even if it’s something that we struggled with in school.
