These objectives are included in our Home Education Guide. This handy volume will be a great support as you plan your curriculum. The pages are designed to help you track introduction, pupils' understanding, and then mastery of each concept. There is space to record progress for three students on each page, so that a quick glance can show you the students' progress and what each still needs to accomplish. All lists have been compared with recognized standards to ensure that students will not be surprised on standardized achievement tests by unfamiliar items.
