BA 2nd grade is about to be published. We haven't done too much math afterschooling in the last year because DD's school does a good job with math and DD has always been a strong math student despite claiming that she doesn't like math.


Do any of you use BA for afterschooling? How much time does it take? Do your kids really think that it is fun?

BA is great for afterschooling. It's different enough to not feel like "more of the same" and teaches things ordinary math curriculum leaves out.


We do about 2 pages a day, more or less. Usually each subtopic is a two page spread, so I try to chunk it that way. But if there's a lot of starred problems, especially towards the ends of a chapter, we might just do one page.


I try to keep it in the ballpark of 20 mins.


This does not include the guide books. My kid reads those on his own (he likes them).
