I think we are set on using MUS for Algebra in the fall. I'm wondering if the blocks are needed, or would the app be sufficient? I only have one younger dd, who likely won't use MUS, so I hate to buy the blocks if we don't need them,

Nope.  The app would be sufficient.  We used MUS A1 and while he sometimes demonstrated a concept in the video using blocks (which I personally found more confusing than helpful), that was enough right there. 


I bought them for pre a...mostly I wanted something new and shiny for for my math hating kid.  That was a waste even for pre a.

One of mine used them and found them really helpful (I was pleasantly surprised!). The other didn't use them (and either there wasn't an app then or I didn't know about it).
