  1. My 8yo son is currently using Horizons 3rd grade math. We both like the worksheets and that it has built in review. He's moving through it fine, but I feel like we're reaching a point where he is looking for more of the "why" not just the "how". I'm not looking to abandon the curriculum entirely, but I'm looking for something to add to round out the conceptual side of math that I feel is lacking. I've seen a lot of people talking positively about RightStart, Singapore (I see there are 2 options, Dimensions Math and Primary Math - happy to hear about both of these), and Math in Focus and
  2. I'd love some advice from seasoned math curriculum users! I have three kids, 9, 6, and 6, (about to turn ages though..) who will be 4th/5th grade and 2nd grade next year. We've been using Right Start and Life of Fred from the beginning with all three. They all adore Life of Fred as a supplement, as do I, and so that is not a problem at all. The question is Right Start. My oldest is not a math lover, though she's competent and does ok. But it's so SLOW. We struggle to get through all the lessons and I feel we are falling behind. It just doesn't seem to be a curriculum that is easy

  4. My dd is just finishing up Beast Academy (sob!). We have all loved our time with the Beasts, the graphic representations of all math concepts, the sneaky review games, even the corny jokes. But she is not a math whiz and needs a fair amount of support with the more advanced problems in the text. So I'm just not thinking that she's going to be quite up for AOPS. I'm wondering about taking the leap from Beast to Elementary Algebra by Jacobs. Has anyone done that? How did it go? Or any other suggestions for post Beast?
  5. I'm considering using Beast Academy to supplement our main math curriculum Saxon. We do every part of Saxon--every part of every lesson, test and investigation--and my boys, (using 5/4 and 8/7, next year) benefit from the spiral/repetition/practice problems. I really believe Saxon is a solid, thorough program but I'd like to supplement with something more conceptually based for my 2 very math-inclined boys. I'm thinking to just get the BA Guide books for their correct level and have them read through that once or twice a week. Has anyone used BA as supplement? How did you structure it
  6. Just wondering if anyone here has any experience with Beast Academy and if you could share your experience. I'm thinking about trying it out over the summer to keep reviewing. Do you have to get the guide and practice or can you just get the guide? Any replies are very much appreciated.
  7. We received our shipment of BA and CWP about 2 months ago, after a few members highly recommended them for us to try as supplements. My goal is to add more word problems to my dd's math learning. So far both of my girls love doing CWP. Depending on the problem, we might go hard 3,4,5 of the easy problems, or just 1,2,3 of the medium-hard problems. 7yo dd currently uses the Miquon Math Blue Book and CWP has become her favourite. I can see that Miquon - CWP is a really good fit for her and we mostly do the problems together as she is very social and vocal. Question The reason why I'm co
  8. Hi all, I need help cutting down on busy work for my 10 year old. What should I cut? What is redundant? What would you keep (or add)? Math U See (epsilon)- 1 sheet daily Mad Minute (1 minute fact review) 6 Mental Math problems (singapore) daily 1 Process Skill problem (singapore) daily I want to add in Beast Academy. That feels like it will be too much. What can I take out? Thanks so much in advance!! Jennifer
  9. I'm looking to move my son into Beast Academy for next year. He will be 10 and in 5th grade. Right now we use MEP and are about 2/3 of the way through Level 4 and will finish by the end of this school year. He loves the puzzley, logic kind of math, but he has requested to do something a little more independent. I love MEP and the topics it covers and the depth of knowledge it gives, but I too hate the time and paper juggling involved, so I'm not adverse to a change. So, internets, what level should we start on? I already own BA 3A and 3B from when they first came out and I tried it wi
  10. We've been doing Singapore Primary Mathematics (standard edition) for the last two years. I purchased the Beast Academy 3A guide and practice book this year and my son loves it! He wants to switch, and I've read of others switching to Beast Academy as a stand alone math curriculum. Should we just keep plugging along to 3B, 3C, 3D, etc. or should we skip to level 4 or 5 after he finishes Singapore 4B? I'm also open to doing both as we have Singapore 5A and 5B already. I'd love to hear your experience. Thanks!
  11. We have been using TT3 this year with my 3rd grade daughter (this was our first year at home) and she's not super excited about it. I thought it would be a great fit bc it's on the computer and I loved it bc it was hands off for me. I will say that I'm not super impressed with the rigor of it and it hasn't gone as deeply into some subjects as I wish it would have (fractions for example) so we've been supplementing a little bit with just a workbook. I'm trying to decide what to do for 4th grade - do we continue with TT4 or change to something else? I've been looking into Beast Academy bc s
  12. Anyone have any information on plans for Beast Academy 5 series? Will there be one? Or do they plan to stop at 4D? Thanks!
  13. Hooray, Beast Academy has posted a FAQ!
  14. Is there anyone else who is disturbed by Beast Academy and its satanic connotations? I remember when it came out and how much praise it received. The name was a bit perturbing - Beast Academy - hmmm, sounds familiar...mark of the beast in Revelation? Then, I viewed the materials: demon-like, dragon, monster creatures, but made to look "cute". I tried to shrug it off. After all, the materials looked as if they would really boost my child's interest in math and she loved Life of Fred, so maybe this would be the ticket. However, I have hesitated to buy them. I have searched far and wide on t
  15. I'm just curious, what is the publishing plan for Beast Academy? I know that they published 3rd grade first, but their website says the program is grade 2-5, so I take it there are no plans to publish a first grade curriculum, right? Will they do 4th grade next or 2nd grade?
  16. My DD(8) was doing SM Standard Ed. Right when we were done with SM 3A, I introduced BA just to get some variety. It really clicked with my DD, at least for now. BA took our math education to a new level. My DD is engaged and she does not even want my help. She wants to solve all the problems by herself....it has been very slow but I am super happy with what BA has done for her. My question to you all is that how do I reintroduce SM again. My DD already told me she enjoys BA more than SM. My problem is that I also like SM and I kind of like what SM teaches as well. In a perfect
  17. Hi! We are using Beast Academy 3A and are having problems with the first chapter- Shapes. He did fine with the rest of the chapter, but we have 2 main sticking points and I need some ideas for extra practice. First problem is with toothpick addition/removal/ rearrangement. You are given toothpicks in a shape and asked how you can use x number of toothpicks to make more or less of the same/different shape.I sat down with him and we played with them for a bit and discovered how to solve the first two problems together. He sat there on his own for awhile and couldn't figure ANY out. I've had
  18. :D For those who where wondering, it is on high quality paper. It's sturdy, for a paperback book. And it's funny. That's all I have right now.
  19. As the title states if you didn't like Beast Academy I am curious why? Or if it worked for 'some' of your kids but not others I would like to hear about that. There are so many 'fan' threads that I'd like to hear the other side of the story as well since no program, no matter how wonderful, works for every child. Thanks,
  20. Appearance and Organization: Each Guide is a slim (100 page) book printed in full color on semigloss, high quality paper. The Guides are divided into three chapters, which are further divided into short comic book story sections. The story sections are interspersed with pages of "notes" written (and sometimes illustrated) by the characters, and with instructions for math games. There are breaks in each story, marked by a stop sign, for students to stop and try to figure out the answer to a math question or puzzle. The characters solve the problem in the next panels, so for the full educational
  21. The Beast Academy Facebook page just printed pictures of the table of contents for the "guide," or textbook, to 3a: Three chapters, and about 100 pages. I'm assuming that this means there will be more than two books per level? This can't be half a year's work. Help me! I am feeling doubt. Is this going to be good? Is it okay that it's mostly geometry? Is my kid who knows her times tables going to be peeved about going back to skip-counting?
  22. My dd8 is finishing up SM3B. This year we've done four days of regular math (SM) and Thurs. are fun math days (LOF elementary and/or logic puzzles and/or some FAN math/CWP). I think it's a good rhythm for us. We have all of LOF elementary-PreAlg. Biology. But, I'm not sure we'll buy any more. It's more in the read-aloud category than math at this point. It's starting to feel more and more scattershot. She really likes the story, but the math is often way too easy or so abruptly intruduced that it's not discovery, it's just frustrating. She really liked the look of the Beast Academy sam
  23. http://www.beastacademy.com/store/4b :thumbup: ETA: oof, I see someone already announced it. Sorry! I looked, but didn't see another post, but that should teach me to make a thread while holding a whiny baby (geez, hope my taxes turned out okay). The last chapter is on Logic? Hmmm.... I've already done lots of grid puzzles with CP, though I'm sure BA will make it interesting. Our problem solving book keeps falling out of the rotation, so knowing this is coming up eventually I won't have to feel so anxious about that. :thumbup1:
  24. I've purchased 3A for my rising 3rd grader and I'm trying to work out the scheduling for our year. I cannot find anywhere on the website a list of how many total lessons there are for the entire year (3A, 3B, 3C, 3D). I also can't seem to figure out if each lesson is supposed to be for one day or one week. Can someone help me out here? Thanks!
