I polled a group of homeschoolers this past weekend, asking "How much time do you spend on math"... the consensus was "How much time do you spend on math?".. i.e. the I didn't really get an answer, but was asked in turn how much time my kids spent on the subject.
I thought my answer would be, up to 90 minutes a day or more for high school students... but no. It seems I may be the only one of that opinion. You see, my kids were not math whizzes and it took that long to get through a math lesson and then practice, especially in the high school years. This started in middle school, where we were doing AT LEAST and hour a day, and it just took more and more time as they death with Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry, and so forth.
And even after all that work, they just did OK on the SAT/ACT exams in the subject. It was their verbal scores that won them their acceptances and scholarships.
So I'd like to ask a bigger audience.. how much time you spend on math, in what grades, and why. And what are/have been the results. I really want to know.
