Given what you say about having worked through 36% of the arithmetic level already without needing any of the videos, it sounds as if the knowledge was in your head already (which accords with what you said about having taken all required math courses through college) but merely needed a refresher to come to consciousness again after decades of having lain fallow.

]]>I’ll grant your point about home schooling, and the gaps that can exist. But I’m the other side of that coin. I went through a terrific school system, took every required math class through junior and senior high — and college — and still need remedial work. Now, I think I have a good tool to work with. I took my “placement exam” last night, landed on the “arithmetic” level, and spent some time seeing how the program works. So far, I’ve had no need for the videos, but I’ve done a lot of problem-solving, and it’s been fun. It’s going to be even more fun to see how far I can go with it. I’ve already mastered 36% of the arithmetic level. ðŸ™‚
