Do Homeschoolers Really Need Algebra and Geometry to Graduate?
Dear Lee, I am worried about math for my 10th grade son. He has struggled in math for years.  Due to some research about dyslexia in my younger son, I stumbled upon something called dyscalculia.

But my question is this - she has never had Pre-Algebra.  Is it necessary to take that or can she just go into Algebra I and be okay.  I don't remember taking Pre-Algebra in high school and am not quite sure what to do in this...
