Jemimah is sitting the IPMA Level 5 test today. It is hard to believe that she has completed Level 5 of MEP. Where has the time gone?
She is working on the computer and the house is very quiet. It's strange. My job is to supply the busy worker bee with hot cups of milky tea and chocky bikkies, but I find myself wandering in and out of the room and feeling generally superfluous. I will not like it when my girl does all her work independently, that is for sure.
I still have nothing but praise for this free maths programme. It supplies a complete, rigourous maths education in a simple and interesting format. There are no gimmicks, no coloured workbooks, no fun manipulatives. What there is, though, is sensible explanations, little busywork, interesting applications, good teaching materials for mum, sufficient repetition and adequate practice, and plenty of variety.
We've used MEP from the beginning and think it's great. I'll be interested to see the results of the test today.
Now what should I do? More biscuits perhaps?
