Free upper level math this summer!

Homeschool Buyers Co-op is wonderful.  If you haven't joined, you need to.  Especially right now -- at least if you have kids in pre-algebra, algebra 1, geometry, or algebra 2.

There is a special offer going on where you can get a free subscription (up to five per family, actually) to YourTeacher.com that is good through August 31.  This is a program I've looked at a couple of times, but never had the funds to buy it.  Well, now we get nearly three months to try it.

I signed up for three subscriptions.  Because I could really use a refresher course in geometry (and I probably need some help in algebra 2, to be honest).  William is going to start pre-algebra this summer anyway, so we'll at least start by going this route.  And Connor, well, I think Connor will work through the Geometry.

If you have never signed up for the Homeschool Buyer's Co-op before, it is FREE to join.  If you use the links here, I do get referral credit... smart points that I can accumulate and use to purchase some of the items they have.  Well, if you click the Your Teacher link and join from there, you can do it without giving me credit.

I have purchased a number of things through the Co-op though.  Explode the Code online, God's World News, Reading Assistant, Legos... it's been great.

Highly, highly recommend joining.  Really.

We use YourTeacher.com for Algebra 2 and also for ACT math prep and it is a great program!

Sharra -- that is GREAT to hear! We've been so busy this week that we have not really had a chance to do much with it... and my older two will be at camp next week... so I'm not really going to get a feel for how it works for them until after that.

So it is nice to hear it worked for you! :)

Okay, I signed up for the co-op, finally, keep meaning to. So, you should get the referral credit (it did ask for a code, but I didn't have one, so hopefully just using your link worked).

Wondering . . . Where did you set up the referral stuff. Now that I'm in I figured I would see about getting some referral points as well, but I can't find it on their site. Do you remember where it was?

Thank you!

Erin --

Thanks!! :)

Okay, referral info. You have to dig! Go to "my account" and then to "My SmartPoints" There is a link there for "Earn" and under that, you want to go to the one near the bottom that says something about referring someone. That includes a link with your referral number. Mine is 15736, just so you have an idea as to what you are looking for.

I'm sure it is somewhere else on the site, but this is the way I finally found it once upon a time, so I stopped looking for a more obvious way!
