Adult doing Brit. Literature just for a review course. It isn't bad at all. Need a lot of memory in the compture. But I'm learning more with this than when I took it in Highschool!

My 10th grader recently started World Geography and is having problems finding links that are necessary for completion of the homework. The message for "Great Circle Mapper" says unavailable. This is a brand new curriculum - thought you would have up-to-date links.

Like Kris, I'm having a bit of trouble finding the "Great Circle Mapper" The link provided in the course is non functional. Error Page.

Our family has been using Alpha Omega for 6 years. My youngest son is currently using Alpha Omega in 9th grade. We really like the format of the curriculum. I love the bible verses and the Christian views that are integrated through the lessons. My son loves all of the Alpha Omega subjects, especially Science and Math. He plans on being a Petroleum Engineer. Thank you.

I love the SOS curriculim. Does anyone know of a college that offers courses in the same format? I know many offer them online but I do not have internet all the time. I like the way SOS is set up and my daughter loves it as well!
