Homeschool Math - Chain Rule Derivatives and Line Multiplication

With the start of the new school year comes new subjects and variations of the existing. 

Carson has been studying the chain rule for complex derivatives in calculus.   

Tucker is continuing linear systems in algebra, but we took a few minutes to learn the line method of multiplying -- an alternative approach to the typical US style of math.

Savannah tried out the line method as well.

Andelin Family Farm


The Andelin Family Farm is in northern Sparks, so it is about a half an hour drive from our house. We heard that they are having a 'Summer Farm Days' event during August, and that they have a kitten barn, so of course we had to go so Savannah could hold a kitten. 

They also had chicken and goat pens and we could just step inside and hang out with the animals. 

This is the line for the kitten room in the barn. Tucker and Savannah went back and waited in line three times to play with 4 kittens.
