  1. I'll be homeschooling for the first time this fall and am getting hung up on what Math curriculum to use. My son going into second grade did fine with Everyday Math in first grade, my son going into 5th grade struggled with 4th grade math, they used Zearn last year. I'm planning to homeschool my older son from now through the middle school years for sure. He has struggled quite a bit with school in general and has focus issues. We may send our younger son back to public school to finish out elementary. I like the looks of Math U See but am concerned it would be difficult for my younger so
  2. Greetings! Shout out to, and question for, my fellow adventuresome math parents who were the pioneers to use Math Mammoth 7 after it's release last year. My dd (with dw) completed MM5-7 (highly recommend it), and now the age-old question - what to use for algebra? We are not directionless, but need to pull the trigger on something. DD is above-average but reluctant in math, enjoys it when the light bulb goes off and she gains confidence. She really is a wonderful, compliant kid, but math is the only battlefront (mild). DW is very algebra-competent but we think a video of someone else w
  3. Can you share what you moved to for pre algebra? MM has worked, but this year more than once a week my dd has grown frustrated with presentation/wording of problems. I'm also seeing some gaps in her knowledge (most recently shapes lol). She is definitely ready for pre algebra but we need something new (and with online instruction live or recorded...to save our relationship) the plan has been to move into Foerster for algebra. I've looked at mr. D but am also thinking maybe a year of Saxon with Nicole the math lady to drill the basics? She is a very logical and rigid thinker when it comes to
  4. I've seen Math Mammoth discussed here several times, so I thought I'd share this. Homeschool Buyer's Co-op is doing a group buy for Math Mammoth. The discount could range anywhere from 20% to 50% depending on how many people buy. Right now it's only at 20% off, but Math Mammoth's website says the discount typically ends up being 40 or 50%. The entire Light Blue Series bundle (all pdf books for grades 1st through 7th) usually retails for $175. If there are 1 to 25 buyers it will be 20% off ($140) If there are 26 to 49 buyers it will be 30% off ($122.50) If there are 50 to 74 buyers it will be
  5. 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 d
  6. I know it's only the first week of school, but so far Math Mammoth has not been going well for us. My son went through Horizons 2 last year, so I thought he would be able to do Math Mammoth 3. The mental math has him frustrated and he gets most if not all of the answers wrong. I'm taken back a bit by this, because math concepts usually come so easily for him. I thought about having him do the answers in the way I was taught, with one number on top of the other, but I would really like him to understand mental math. I really wish I was taught this way! Has anyone else had this issue?
  7. My kids (4th and 2nd) have been using Math Mammoth since they came home from public school where they used Everyday Math (before the common core got a hold of it). They have been successful with it, and most of the topics come easy to them. Really, I think they can thrive with any program and in fact, they have said this to me . So we've never used Saxon but have the opportunity to attend a coop next year that uses it. I'm sort of torn... I like that Saxon has video lessons will be covered one day a week at co op I like Math Mammoth because we are familiar with it kids tolera
  8. We have jumped around a lot with math and I want to get organized as DD1 heads into 5th grade in the fall. We started out in gr 1 trying Right Start (hated) and then did Saxon for grades 1-2 (hated), didn't finish Saxon 2 and switched to Math Mammoth to finish he year, then switched to TT3 for grade 3. This year we did 1/2 of TT4 but DD started to complain it was too easy (it was) and we switched to Math Mammoth a few weeks ago and also hired a math tutor to come once/week. DD1 says she likes Math Mammoth and wants to do it for 5th grade. I like the level of challenge but find it hard t
  9. Math Mammoth is down to 40% off at homeschool buyers coop. The deal is on through the end of March, so it may get down to 50% still. Hope this helps someone. -Sarah
  10. 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
  11. Math Mammoth is back on Homeschool Buyers Coop for the month of March. 130+ people buying puts it at 50% off. Now, you know. :)
  12. Hi! I am really looking for some guidance. My ds, 10 has a hard time with math. We used MM 3 last year and I liked it but I can't decide if I loved it. He would forget some things that we went over and I felt like I was constantly going over past topics. Has anyone else experienced this? I feel like the spiral approach in Saxon might be better for him...thoughts? Or other suggestions? Thank you so much!
  13. Is it possible for a 6yo to become a self directed learner? Is the age of 6 too young for this? I currently use MUS and MM.
  14. ​My 11 year old son, who is finishing 5th grade, has not had a great Math experience in life. His sister has done well using MUS from the very beginning. But when I did it with him, he just looked at me perplexed over and over again for months. He just didn't get it in kindergarten, we tried again in First grade and got through most of Alpha. But then he hit another road block. I took him out and did general things--teaching the clock, money, basic geometry, using the Math Mammoth Blue series topics. But there was too much on a page and it overwhelmed him. I tried to go back t
  15. We've been using MM1 with my DS very successfully with only a few hiccups due to space availability (got him a notebook for math) and how many problems are crammed in a page (again, we do those in his notebook). Reading random forum posts I came across Prodigy math and I thought my son would enjoy it. The game started exposing him to topics that we haven't practiced. He really wanted to solve them for his "battles" so I have been explaining problems and looking for the pages in MM1 that match that for him to practice. Once he understands, he does the problems mostly correctly. Ther
  16. I feel a bit lost and upset on what I have just found out with my kids math placement. Help me figure this out please! First for my 10 year old (he turns 11 in 2 months) and is in "5th grade" he was in 4th grade at public school last year and was one of the top kids in math. We have been doing Mastering Essential math skills by Richard Fisher and I have been quite pleased with it and he has been scoring above 90% on all his tests, from the curriculum and ones I've made, and on the course work, it is made for grades 4-5. But Lately I've been a bit concerned with his common sense in math such
  17. I am looking for a new math curriculum for next year for my little guy. This year we did Saxon and while I liked some of the teaching approaches, it was SO boring for him. He is VERY math minded, so most days we did two or three lessons and will have finished Saxon 1 and 2 by the end of this year. Despite how much he has learned, he just didn't enjoy math like he did before we started 'formal curriculum'. I want him to enjoy math again and I think for him that means more color. I am looking at both Horizons and Math Mammoth and am hoping for some tips from anyone who has used either
  18. Educents has it for 40% and then add an EXTRA 10% off by using code MOTHERSDAY if you buy before May 11th! http://www.educents.com/math-mammoth-light-blue.html http://www.educents.com/math-mammoth-blue-downloads-15864.html We absolutely LOVE Math Mammoth!
  19. I need to add in more math for my older two kids and budget is a major restriction. I've looked over both MEP and Ray's and I like the look of both (MEP for it's very different approach and Ray's for word problem focus). I am just not 100% sure what level to put them in for either program. I'm waffling and could use some help deciding. We are new to homeschooling (only home for fourish months) after them both being in public school and I underestimated how much both of them would want to tear through math :D Oldest DS is 8.5, in grade 3, and is almost done Math Mammoth 3A. Very very g
  20. We have been using Singapore since 2nd and my son is now in 5th and we have hit a snag. Should I keep pushing through, it seems suddenly like nothing was being retained and that I am having to walk through problem after problem. He is not (nor am I) mathematically inclined and I am starting to wonder if I need more hand holding and more explanations than Singapore PM US edition provides. What about Math Mammoth? Or should I just stick to this topic (dividing fractions and the whole fractions unit) until we are solid? I was already thinking about next year and I was going to us Singapore 6A/6B
  21. Hi all, I thought I would share some good news with you. According to Maria, she is preparing to release her newest MM Pre-Algebra this Fall. In response to my question about it's progress which I have been following she stated: Hello Derek, Yes, there's progress. :-) Part 7-A (the first half) should be available in late August, as a download. Sincerely, Maria Miller
  22. Just in case anyone wasn't on the mailing list, Math Mammoth is on sale today through the Homeschool Buyer's Co-op. I'm mightily tempted.
  23. Hello, can anybody tell me when/where Math Mammoth cover negative numbers ? Thank you
  24. We're coming off three years of K12 math and are now using Math Mammoth 5 A & B along with Singapore Practice 5A & B from Frank Schaffer. Singapore 5 claims to be intended for 6th grade, but the skills are right at my student's level. Drat! This student does not care for Math Mammoth and avoids it. I pick and choose problems so she doesn't get bogged down by the page. Much of the Math Mammoth is review anyway. Math in Focus is a reasonable option, but where to place my child is another question. Do I use a Singapore placement test? The samples online for grade 6 seem too easy
  25. 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.
