Even the study of mathematics schedule has gone out of the windows in this household these days. Once given the free reign, Tiger has read more maths-related books on his own than ever before:
He attended a Maths circle where he played some maths games and solved some math puzzles...
Apart from the topical maths done at Halloween, Tiger has also spent much more time practising various areas of Khan Academy's Arithmetic section. Most homeschoolers have already discovered this site, but Tiger has just been using it more frequently lately. He is very motivated by the various badges and awards he can earn as he progresses through the various sections. The best part is, he is doing what we would consider to be drills without even realising it. The website has a clever system built in to adjust the number of drills the child has to do according to how quickly and accurately the child has answered the previous questions, so there are no unnecessary repetitions, which suits Tiger very well. It is more or less self-paced and would suit an independent learner very well.
