    Default Gifted children

    My daughter is in 1st grade and gifted. She is bored with her classroom curriculum so we use Time for Learning to provide her with more challenging work. She can work abover her grade level and it satisfies her need to learn something new every day!

    What grade is she in?

    Since she is more advanced in Time4Learning math than she is in her class, her work in class must only be review work. Does she mind that ?

    For gifted students in middle school and higher, Time4Learning is offering a different program. It's created and run by IMACs, Institute for Math and Computers Science.

    There are a teacher supported logic course and a computer science course. Both are for focused bright students who have passed algebra and would like more interesting work. Arguably, the logic course could be considered more for debaters or philosophers in that its not arithmetic, its logic.

    Time4Learning's approach to placing agifted childis to classify them by age. The younger ones are then encouraged to take Time4Learning with their math placed at a more level. By middle school, the chance is to get into pre-algebra or algebra earlier, and then, its to take the logic or computer science courses. Note that the logic and computer science course can be provided for credit and they are priced differently than the rest of the Time4Learning automated learning programs.

    If you are interested, take a look at: http://www.time4learning.com/gifted/gifted-child.htm

    The logic course could also be provided to adult learners looking to sharpen their thinking and mind.

    Just a quick question, as I am familiar with IMACS.

    Why does Time for Learning's placement policy differ from the policies of eIMACS itself? I know of more than one elementary aged student who has taken Logic courses through them after meeting the same prerequisites as the high schoolers. Other parents have raved about how friendly they were to profoundly gifted children and their families.

    This doesn't have any impact on my decision to use the Time for Learning program. Of course, the vast majority of gifted children will follow a path more in line with what is described above. I was just wondering.
