    Default New user, confused about the 'exploratory' part of Math 4 lessons

    I don't understand this 'exploratory' section at all. On the report it looks like it's a non-graded activity, but then what is the 'grand total' for? Are the questions that require a written answer supposed to be typed in the 'type' box and if so what is the point since I don't see it on the report anyway.

    I'm enjoying this, but I just don't get this one part!

    The exploratory lessons are an opportunity for the student to freely explore what they are studying, for as long or as short a time as they choose. They aren't graded. Some students respond well to this type of activity. Others (like mine) need more direction and precise instructions. Time4Learning attempts to provide lessons to benefit all kinds of learners. Many of my own children have just skipped the "exploratories".

    Mom of six . . . current students and homeschool graduates. Enjoying using Time4Learning since 2006!

    Thank you. We're using it now to just goof around and figure things out. I'll ask her the questions and she just tells me the answer instead of being all hung-up on having to write them down in traditional style.

    We are really loving T4L!!!
