Did you count the Runkle geography for 1/2 or 1 credit on the transcript? It only has 13 chapters, so I'm wondering if the map exercises took a lot of extra time? Thank you.
In her blog post Hours in a Credit, Lee says, "When I estimate high school credits, I usually just guess and estimate how much time the student spends.
