  3. It's February...blah...

  4. Wow, this sounds like a major headache. We all know how much free time you have to deal with messes like these ;) I don't think I've posted anything in copyright violation, but I'm going right now to check out my history and take down my avatar. Sorry you have to deal with this!
  5. Thanks for all the replies! DD is using MM, which is pretty conceptual, so we'll probably stick with that. She has also been liking working through Horizons Math 2 on the side, so between the two she'll be okay. :)
  6. This is exactly what I was trying to say. MM is tedious for me because it just seems like overkill...but it doesn't seem that way to DD.
  7. Wow; I've been away for a couple of days and was excited to see all the responses when I got back! Thanks to all who have discussed here. Reading different experiences and points of view has given me a lot to think about. I think that I must be one of those people who can intuit basic math concepts like making tens and regrouping, etc. Even though my own math education was dismally algorithm based, I naturally knew how to find the answers mentally. Now, looking at programs like Singapore and MEP...it really seems like a lot of overkill. But maybe that's because I already know how to
  8. "If I choose a math from each country my kids should be pretty well covered, right?" :lol: I also have an antipathy to doing more than one math program at a time. I want to find one that just teaches math the good old fashioned way and be done with it. Guess I'm showing my age now :ph34r:
  9. To clarify: I do not find Math Mammoth confusing, just the number of choices and math philosophies in the homeschooling world. I'm really glad to hear that people still think a non-Asian math is a viable option. I know it probably works very well for many kids, but I have an unecplained antipathy toward the whole thing. :laugh:
  10. I've been hanging around these boards for a year or so now, and one of the biggest trends I see here is the switch from 'regular' math (like we had, lol) to conceptual maths like MEP and Singapore. I am slogging through making a workable plan for my K-12 curriculum choices, and the math is just so confusing. So here is my question for you wise teachers: Can a student be prepared for college-level math (should they choose to go to college) using traditional math such as Saxon? I find I do not like conceptual math (perhaps because it is foreign to me?) and would be extremely happy teach
