Standard Deviants Accelerate Homeschool Review


Standard Deviants Accelerate Review
Hey neighbors!

Our homeschool reviews are winding down for the holidays.  Only a couple more and we will be done until after the New Year.  This time I was able to review the Homeschool Courses of Standard Deviants Accelerate.  If you are looking for online courses for your homeschooler, or just an added supplement, take a moment to learn more about Standard Deviants Accelerate.

Standard Deviants Accelerate Review

Once you have signed up to use Standard Deviants Accelerate you will have your own User Name and Password.  Under the My Desk tab, you will be able to add students and classes.  Each student can have their own User Name and Password.  This is also where you can check on their progress and grade written answers.  Once you have chosen the classes you would like your student to participate in, give them their sign in information along with a code you were given when you signed them up.  At this point they can sign in and begin their classes.

Your student may then sign in and proceed to whichever course they are supposed to work on.  For instance in when they click on American History, they are given different options like: American Presidents, Women's Movement, Civil Reform, etc.  When they hover the mouse over one of those topics, it is broken down even more.  American Presidents breaks down in to classes on approx. three presidents at a time, for example: Abraham Lincoln, John Adams and Thomas Jefferson.

The next screen that pulls up has a text box with the transcript for the video.  The video is right next to the transcript box and they can follow along, reading the transcript as they listen to and watch the video.  Or they can do one at a time.  There is a box for taking notes that will be saved to their locker, another tab at the top of their screen.  After watching the video, there is also, Vocabulary, Diagram, Quiz and Written Answer.  Vocabulary, is exactly that.  Here your student will find definitions that they can both read, or hear read to them.  Diagram is extra work, to help learn about the video they just watched.  Quiz, is just that a quiz.  Written is where they will be given a question that requires  a written answer.  More than just a yes or no response is required.  All work will be saved in their Locker.  At the end of their Quiz, they can check how many questions they got right.  There is also an option to print off the transcripts, quizzes and such, but we chose not to.

Some of the videos seemed a little silly to her.  Since we were only using this a s a supplement it was ok, but not sure how we would feel of this was the bulk of her course.  I do like the ability for her to move along at her own pace.  It would also be could if the parent felt that they did not now enough about a certain subject.

The following is a list of available subjects:
Arithmetic (grades 3+)
Fundamental Math (grades 4+)
Earth Science (grades 6+)
Nutrition (grades 6+)
Biology (grades 7+)
Algebra (grades 7+)
Chemistry (grades 9+)
English Comp (grades 9+)
U. S. History (grades 9+)
AP Biology (grades 11+)
AP Chemistry (grades 11+)
AP U. S. Gov. & Politics (grades 11+)
AP Eng. Composition (grades 11+)

They do have a free 7 day trial available on the website, so you can try it out for your self and see what you think.

Polar FA20 Activity Watch Review and Giveaway

Hi Neighbors, Well, I am out of the hospital, but I am not allowed to be very active yet, so I asked my daughter to test out this new item. It is an Activity Watch. What a great item for Get Out Get Active! The Polar FA20 counts your daily physical activity. First you need to set the basic information. The date, units (metric or imperial), your weight, height, birth date, and male or female. Place the FA20 on your wrist to measure your physical activity 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This watch monitors your activity and gives you feedback about how you are doing. Everyone should be physically active at least 30 minutes each day, and the FA20 helps you achieve this. Throughout your day you can check and see if you are having a Lazy Day (active less than 30 minutes), Easy Day (active 30 to 60 minutes), Active Day (active 60 to 75 minutes) or an Intensive Day (active more than 75 minutes). You can also record your training sessions to learn more about how your body respon
