  1. I hate to say this, I really do. Dd14 used MM 4 & 5 and half of 6 before moving on. It prepared her well for Algebra & beyond. It's a solid program, I've been a fan of it for years. But now . . . Dd11 has used MM 2, 3, 4, and 5. We've started MM6 . . . and we hate it. It's ponderous. It's boring. There are too many problems. (I know you don't have to do them all). But it's just feeling dull and clunky and dreadful and boring. I need to shake things up. Dd is starting to say she "hates" math, which is the main thing I've wanted to avoid in homeschooling . . . but here we are. She does fine with math, no problems in learning, she's on grade level, though she doesn't do terribly well working independently. She does Dreambox online and enjoys that. But MM . . . ugh. And I don't really blame her, I dread it too. I found myself flirting with the Teaching Textbooks website this morning. :scared: :tongue_smilie: What would you do? We're going through a really tough year in our family, dealing with dd14's chronic illness which is eating up a ton of time and energy. We really need to work efficiently and make every minute count. And we need to not be miserable. I'm not sure what I'm asking for - alternative 6th grade math? Sympathy? A kick in the butt? Really, I"m not sure, I'm kind of just whinging. But I would like some alternative math programs to consider.
  2. I found an older archived forum answer http://forums.welltrainedmind.com/topic/254450-is-math-mammoth-at-below-or-above-grade-level/. Mostagree that it was at level or above? Just wondering if anyone has a different opinion five years later?
  3. Hi~ I was looking for bar model practice for my DD and wanted to share my findings. For Andriod os a.k.a. Kindle: http://www.amazon.com/Singapore-Models-Kindle-Tablet-Edition/dp/B00D3L8WRQ/ref=pd_sim_mas_2?ie=UTF8&refRID=16MZZT81Q6Y22571D5QN For iPad os: http://singaporemathblog.com/singaporemathbarmodelsipad/ I haven't used these apps yet. I didn't want to buy another book such as Singapore Challenging Word problems, and I wanted the practice to be fun.
  4. I'm primarily a lurker here but I pick up a lot of good advice... so I checked out Thinkwell this year and thought it looked good for my 6th grader who has been doing Math Mammoth for the last couple of years and previous to that, the old BJU. Math is not her strongest subject and we have had much frustration with MM so I thought it was time to move on. In comparison to MM, Thinkwell is ridiculously easy unless I'm missing something. We are getting into the intro to Algebra now but it still doesn't seem to require any "thinking" at all, just a few very straightforward questions. We're doing the online exercise and the printed worksheet which seems to be all there is. Does it get better? Am I missing something? Have we just been overworked by MM? I appreciate any thoughts :)
  5. Homeschool Buyer's Co-op is doing a group buy of Math Mammoth. https://www.homeschoolbuyersco-op.org/math-mammoth/ It ends August 31.
  6. We did the switch with my rising 4th grader after we finished Saxon 5/4. She placed in Math Mammoth 4......she also loves the looks of Teaching Textbooks.....she placed in TT Math 6. So I was going to have her try to work through all of MM4 and part of MM5 throughout the year for 5th grade. How do I squeeze TT6 in there?? TT has 116 lessons....we school year round somewhat beginning on Aug. 5 and ending our school year end of June....giving July time off & get ready for next school year the following Aug. I think I'm going to do 9 weeks on, 1 week off, and holidays/free days here and there. I need help figuring out how many days in the week she should do MM and how many for TT. I think it would be too much to do both in a day. We will do math M-F....She has been reading LOF this summer, too......she likes it okay but not as much as her db. Any-who, can anyone advise me on how to plan both TT & MM & possibly LOF?? Thanks in advance! J
  7. Hello all of you fabulous educators! I need to firm up my math curriculum in the next 2 weeks for my 2nd and 1st grade boys. Please read and advise this newbie with only 1 year under her belt! Last year I used Modern Curriculum Press Math along with MUS. I feel our results were good and both boys are ahead of where they "should be" as I worked with them individually to push them forward. I thought MUS was abit slow and I felt if I continued with it they might be left behind. After about 4 weeks of MUS I kinda quit it and by EOY brought my 1st grader to mastery of addition/subtraction to 20, introd fractions, telling time the the minute. Money he is amazing at and is adding change past 3.00. He ended up about halfway thru the MCP Level B book, which is I believe their second grade material. He is carrying 3 digits, and really enjoys multiplcation but we've just started to 6. I really like the layout of the TM for MCP, it is really solid with many examples and games, and extra activities to reinforce. I liked the blocks for MUS, I like the visual to reinforce concepts- and we'd use the MUS worksheets and watch a lesson here or there, but I didn't think it gave him enough practise to mastery. Maybe had we done just that program I would have seen the same results. Using a 6 ft whiteboard hung low to the ground we did everything from fact families, number lines, and graphing, and even pattern sequencing. Oh we also used IXL math and have a subscription which he thinks is fun to go on the PC and practise. Heard great things about Dreambox too. My K boy is doing well for his age, with addition/sub to 10 mastered, and time to the half hour etc. and I'll take him on the same path content wise I think as his brother this next year. I've read great things about Math Mammoth and Singapore Math. 2nd grader is ready to go into 2a/2B per the tests online. Just not sure what I should do here. Should I change at all or just keep on with the same? I guess I'm having the fears everyone has - I'm missing a component, or a skill set, or (my sanity?? lol) Another program is better than what I have now. . . Am I doing enough . . .Does he get it conceptually. . . I think I'd like a simple straight forward daily plan for math, and I didn't really have one last year which stressed me out and is why I'm thinking about making a change. I do have all the TM's and Student Books for MCP Math in hand up to 6th grade (worked at Pearson and got em free - sweeeet) and there have been great ideas in the TM's I haven't seen in other products TM's. It is an option to just stay with that and as they progress to mastery, push them forward to the next books as I've been doing. I liked the videos with MUS but is that program truly vigorous enough? Waiting until Delta for division? That's 4th grade. . . How is that not behind? We do need more work with word problems, but I see SM has a challenging word problems component I could just buy and add. I've researched and hemmed and hawed. I've bought Cathy Duffy's book and taken the questionnaire. I'm eclectic (like you didn't know that by now) with a push towards classical. I want my boys to continue to be ahead and excel. I guess I'm just shocked that the content can be so different company to company. To stay ahead should everyone just use Singapore? Other tools you've used out there? I know some use an abacus or scales. Any and all advice greatly appreciated. A master at anything was once a beginner and that's what I am. Warm wishes on a great rest of the summer from us here in the deep woods of Minnesota.
  8. Here's the scoop... DD (age 7) doesn't like math, especially addition and subtraction (she likes money and tolerates time. She likes measuring). Math time brings out major bad attitudes, pouting, "it's too hard!" etc. (she likes things to be easy, in all areas of her life). We are attempting 1 page of math a week this summer to help retention. (that's it, one page, but it still sours her mood.) She is not behind. She started 2nd grade MM (2A) half way through 1st. She isn't fast but can just get it done when she makes up her mind to. We are about 40% through 2nd grade MM. She likes manipulatives, too. The biggest problems are that 1. The daily battle to get math done exhausts me. 2. I want her to like math. She loves science and if she goes into that field one day, she'll likely need a strong math background. Kindergarten was a cyber academy, and we went along with their math program. First was MM, adding in LoF for fun. I have Miquon, and she plays with it a little. I am thinking of switching to MUS primarily bc it still uses manipulatives and with the dvds, I think she may respond better to someone else "teaching" her. I know I will also teach her, of course. I can borrow the dvd and teacher's guide, so I'll only be buying the student books. I just so badly want to find something she does fairly happily and not curriculum hop. Will Beta MUS follow well if we are almost halfway through MM 2? Will it be more interesting? Any other suggestions or advice? Thank you!
  9. DD9 is on track to finish MM 5B sometime this fall. My current plan is to have her work through 6A and B and then move into AOPS prealgebra, but it seems I have heard some people skip MM6. I'm not in a hurry, but I am curious to know if there are things in MM6 that need to be covered before prealgebra or if the program is redundant at that point.
  10. My daughter is in 5th grade and she has been doing exclusively MUS math since the beginning. This year she was struggling with fractions and I took a break and did MM's blue series 1st book of Fractions (1-3 grade) as a review. It helped solidify what she'd learned, but she said she liked the MM but prefers to do the MUS videos to help her understand. I'm afraid though that it's not all sinking in with just MUS. So I thought about incorporating both. I've heard many do it on here, but am unsure how. How do you do it? What does Math at your house look like when you combine the two programs? Thanks!
  11. Sale starts Jan 21st at Homeschool Buyers Co-op. Here's a helpful link! You can actually sign up for a reminder right away so you'll get an email when it opens. As with most HSBC offers, the more people buy, the better the deal - it says up to 50% off, which would be a fantastic savings. Just wanted to pass along a heads up. We don't use MM, but it's a terrific program. Not sure exactly which materials will be included, but if you're thinking of buying, it's probably worth waiting a couple of weeks to find out...
