  1. Has anyone done this? I think my kids would enjoy them, particularly DS6. (I think I have got myself yet another VSL.) I am not interested in switching from what we currently use but I would be willing to invest in the videos if they would be worthwhile on their own merits. :bigear:
  2. If anyone is using Crewton Ramone's House of Math website for high school could you please let me know if I need to purchase a textbook of some sort or are there plenty of practice problems online to practice the methodology with? I think that the website covers trig and pre calc. if not all the way through calc. please correct me if I am wrong. Oh, and does he tend to have a sale at any particular time of year? Thanks!!! Debbie
  3. I just picked up a pretty much complete set and am starting to look through and sort it all out. Just wondering if anyone else has used this and how you use it? I have some of the skip counting coloring books, the addition, multiplication, mathematics, problem solving, measurement, algebra and calculus workbooks. It looks like most of it is there. I thinking of using it as a supplement to introduce new concepts. Thanks.:001_smile:
  4. I just paid for a year subscription to his website (using Paypal) and received verification of payment from Paypal. I haven't yet received a password to the CR site. Is this normal? If it takes a day or two to receive it, that's fine. I just didn't want to sit by the computer, waiting with bated breath to delve into the mysteries of the House of Math if the password isn't going to arrive for a while. How/when did you receive your password information? Thank you to everyone who posted about this site. Between CR and the Education Unboxed videos, I think I'm finally going to figure out the myriad of possibilities for c-rods and MUS blocks. Thank you!!!!!!
  5. Ds loves this! I mean, he is thrilled and is whizzing through it. Anything else like this for a 4th or 5th grade math level or does he have to slog through the rest of arithmetic first?
  6. So I have some questions about all these..... 1)I want to know if the Mortensen Math blocks are the same as Math U See blocks? They seem to look the same on the video but I want to know before I go digging in the garage to look for my old Math U See blocks. 2)How different is the Math U See program from the Crewton Ramone/Mortensen program? The early stuff seems to be the same but we only did the first book of Math U See about 15 years ago or so. 3)Would it thoroughly confuse my kids using Crewton Ramone, cuisenaire Rods from Miquon and Education Unboxed and Right Start materials or even Math U SEE blocks all at the same time? Would the different colors of the different materials just be too much? 4)How many people actually purchased the blocks and materials from Crewton Ramone? Do you know of any charter schools willing to pay for them?
  7. Is MUS the only manipulative-based math besides RightStart? I don't mean programs like Saxon that can be used with manipulatives but programs where the manipulatives are integral to the program. Heather
  8. Why has no one told me how fun those little blocks are? Dd7 is building squares & rectangles and doing her Beast lessons with our new blocks. Dd8 is building squares and factoring polynomials. Quite painless and actually enjoyable for all. Even dd7 can see how it works. :) Crewton Ramone's House Of Math videos have given me some fabulous ideas. If you haven't watched his youtube videos...do it! Steve Demme's alg 1 videos are fantastic. I just received MUS Alg 1 this week and we already LOVE it! This should be FUN! Anyone else using MUS blocks for algebra? My young learners are truly enjoying this. Currently dd7 has her mini-fig of Jack Sparrow measuring the sides and areas of her squares/rectangles and other random shapes in Beast. Yay, homeschool.
  9. He emailed me his response to this question. ETA: He posted his response on his website here. My girls and I love his videos of his tutor sessions with his kids & other students online and locally on Maui. . . I don't benefit in any way by promoting him. This is his blog: Crewton Ramone's Blog Of Math. Crewton Ramone's House Of Math has more info, background and links to his lessons. I paid $5 for access to all the videos. They are fabulous. Very socratic and entertaining. Hope this helps someone who is curious about CR. Here is a blog post of my girls doing CR-inspired math. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Part 1 of CR's response With a password they get links to more organized pages and on my website; if you go to the addition page, the vids are about addition...and there are links to more pages although by no means is it up to date and complete so you might search Crewton Ramone Addition, or Crewton Ramone Addends...and start watching the vids that interest you or your kids. Eventually, it will be worth the password just for the organization but that day is not today. People want more structure. There isn't structure on purpose. Like the books, the idea is to take/make concurrent lessons...you do it all at once the same way you learn language. You don't spend a year on verbs and then another on nouns...by the same token fractions can be used to teach addition and multiplication, algebra can be used to teach fractions or any math (it is after all generic math), or you could just fool around with addends by themselves or then teach multiplication using addends and if you are doing addends you should see sum subtraction...get it sum? (I crack myself up.) If you are doing multiplication you should see some division and square roots too. The whole freaking problem with the modern ineffectual way of teaching math is that it is segmented to the point that students don't see the natural relationships between things like the inverse functions of multiplication (or even addition and subtraction) because they spend a year multiplying and then a year dividing and hating it and then have to be taught these are inverse functions. Let your students discover these things while you direct them. For many parents they will be learning and discovering right along with them because your math experience is also shall we say, "challenged." Play with your kids and learn together: I can't imagine a more beautiful parenting or learning experience than learning together. Go down a path and see where it goes. It doesn't have to be the same for everyone. I would say start algebra right away but from there the paths should diverge and merge in an almost endless combination of lessons the sum of which ends up being "the mathematics." I don't care if you have a degree in mathematics...if you start playing with the manipulatives and watching videos you will begin to actually understand the math you were taught and be able to impart this knowledge on your students. I have had several parents with degrees in math or engineering sit in and be amazed that in 5 minutes I can cover 4 or 5 concepts and they can see how they all go together for the first time. And they "get it." People tell me I am a gifted teacher. I disagree: I just have good tools and try to show people how to use them. If they will spend a little time they will learn...sometimes they have to un-learn first. I implore them, once they start making discoveries NOT to take those discoveries away from their students: give them the same ah-ha moments you have. The natural instinct is to tell them whatever it is you just discovered instead of letting them discover it on their own. Then they can get the same ah-ha experience you had. It's fun. It can be addicting. This requires only one skill: patience. Something I am short one most of the time. Set up a situation where they will discover the rules for themselves. Let them make up their own rules and see if they work. Sometimes they don't but many times they do...and you don't all have to be doing the same thing at the same time in the same order. This is not to say that things couldn't be better organized at the House of Math...because they could; however, they don't need to be at the moment.
