Just a quick little update on our rough couple of homeschooling days....
With the assistance of Khan Academy videos on Mitosis, Meiosis, and Diploid/Haploid Cells, plus the help from a lovely homeschooling mom who blogs her science stuff (found here) , we have conquered module 7 in the Apologia Biology book! We were confusing "homologous pairs" with "sister chromatids". I know! It's all so clear now!
I didn't know it was possible to feel such relief and like my brain is going to explode at the same time.
Someday, I'm going to be a contestant on Jeopardy and win a ton of money to make up for all of this.
