But we are in 3A as well, and now that we are learning the multiplication tables, we're not completing too many pages at all. I've been having ds8 do 1 page the first day we learn a new table and finish the 2nd page for that table the next day, but then the rest of the week, we've been kind of camping out and memorizing that particular table. He wants to move ahead, but I've insisted that we camp out until he knows these facts cold. DH agrees and insists that ds8 needs to be able to spit them out quickly.

I try to have my kids do the entire lesson (which is generally 2 - 3 pages), but I only have them complete about half of the problems if the lesson is long. If they miss quite a few, then we save it for a second day and go back to do the other half of the problems.
Sometimes we don't need to do all the steps to understand the lesson. Those are cut out! If the subject is really hard we spend another day on it.

For my 9yo 3rd grader in MM 3, he typically does 2 a day. If it's not dense or has lots of teaching, he gets excited about having a "light" day. If there are a lot of problems, I will tell him do half in this section and let me check it. If he gets them ALL right, he doesn't have to do the rest of that part.

There's a FAQ page on the MM website; if you scroll down to question #14, there's a chart for each grade level showing the average # of pages per day to complete a level in one school year.
Thanks for posting the link Jackie. That is very helpful. And thank you to all who responded! It's good to get an idea of what is working for other families.

Where the topics are more challenging for her, we slow it down. I have even added extra review pages where necessary to "remind" her of what she has already learned.
Doing this we are slowly catching up so that she will be ready (I hope) for Algebra in 8th grade. I do tend to go into summer until we complete a book (e.g. 5A).
