Butte County

David Chandler has created Math Without Borders – a series of Home Study Companion video lessons to accompany the most rigorous and thorough math textbooks available, while maintaining a student-friendly approach. He is an experienced teacher of mathematics, but has also taught physics, astronomy, and computer programming. After working with homeschool families at a charter school, he wanted to develop the materials and resources families need to teach high school math at home. The Math Without Borders series offers Algebra 1, Geometry, and Algebra 2/Trigonometry. Each one is meant to be accompanied by a separate textbook that can be purchased online. Algebra 1 lessons accompany the textbook “Algebra 1: ExPressions, Equations, and Applications”. David Chandler utilizes opportunities for real learning to occur through his video lessons. He teaches students the principles and concepts behind the work being completed. These detailed explanations, illustrate the new information learned, while emphasize the connections between concepts.

Butte County Homeschool Support Groups & PSP’s

The most important thing for homeschool success is to mingle and socialize with other homeschooling families. Being a member of a support group allows you to share resources and information with them as well as to remind you that you are not alone in your home-teaching journey. Your county support groups can offer you families with common goals and interests to yours.

:Note: Our information includes both Parent-led Homeschool Support Groups and Private School Satellite Programs (PSPs) formerly known as Independent Study Programs (ISPs).

What’s the difference?

The difference is that typically, the Parent-led Homeschool Support Groups are created by families for families to get together for social activities, such as park days, P.E. activities, organized classes, field trips and other “group” types of endeavors. Some require a general membership fee, but most do not. You can usually show up at a park day and meet the parents and children to see how you like the group.

PSPs or ISPs are private schools, usually small in enrollment, but schools nonetheless. Homeschooling families may enroll and pay tuition, in order to receive the administrative support of a school. This includes record-keeping of attendance, grades, testing and transcripts preparation.

To separate them, we have placed the letters PSP or ISP in the title of such schools.
