    Default Detailed Plan vs the Planning Calculator

    Ok, so I decided the planning calculator seemed a lot less intimidating for my son to use for 7th grade, our 3rd year with T4L.

    Why is it when I put the same dates and same subjects in the detailed planner, it has him doing way more work in the same time period? I'm so confused right now lol.

    If I look at, say, Math, it says 3 activities a day, 15 a week and 65 a month. But if I look at math on the detailed planner, there are way more than 15 activities for that same week. Is there a way to synch them?

    Looking at it, I'm afraid if I go by the planning calculator, he will be way behind at the end of the school year. Or is it that he will be further ahead with the detailed planner?

    Ok, I think I figured out what I have to do, lol. Using the calculator, I went to the planner and unchecked everything, and only added back however many it said had to be done in a week for each subject according to the calculator. Then changed the dates from August 21-26. I was able to print out the week with only the 34 activities for the whole week. Voila!

    Yay! I'm glad you figured it out.

    Here is a step-by-step guide to using the planner, in case you need it later.
