  1. This is my honest feedback about Redbird Maths: Adv. Ed. I am not connected to them in any way shape or form. Background: Relatively speaking - my 9 year old is okay to good in Maths. He's got good feedback from school and won here and there already few things. Tuition: Mainly by myself originally. However, due to workload, put him in Mathnasium, which he liked but not due to studies but the atmosphere. His base got better there. Later, I adopted Beast Academy and currently he's comfortable in 4B. In school, he's in accelerated maths and they are doing exponents and prime numbers (currently). Problem statement: His issue has always been the basic question (to me): why should I learn (for example) prime numbers? What's the use? Etc., etc. Also, he doesn't like repetition like his school makes him do - TenMarks and Jam sessions (for example). He'll however happily do study island as they are short and sweet. Main topic: Thus I was trying to find out more about the applied part of things. I took subscription of this online program costing me approx. $60 per quarter. Initially, the child is graded by self (parent) and I accidentally put him at grade 3 (Sept. just started, still not used to grade 4 - tying...LOL). He did 50-50 in the initial assessment! I was surprised at the low score. Then I reviewed the questions, etc and more on that: later, below, i.e. why he fared not well as he was stumped at the questions being rhetorical and applied knowledge was required! The course below is for grade 4. I had an option (as parent) to moving him to grade 4 which I did. Then, there's 1 more option whereby I can move him up even more and it goes to the middle of the course - Equivalent Fractions. When taking the individual package, it's not possible to pick and choose topics. Like I mentioned above, you go with grade or grade + .5. For me - this is a negative. Now, the structuring of questions - is rather good! I was pleasantly surprised when my son flew thru the 1st. part and then in multiplication and division started getting TONS of questions. I realized they are adaptive and not only that in between questions suddenly it'll go into a "hunt" mode and then next set is substantially different type than the ones before if my son is doing them quickly. Then, in 2 cases it just completed and moved on to the next topic after just 10 odd questions! I knew he is relatively strong in it. Quality of questions - this is what caused me to stop and really look into the program. Almost every question starts and continues with an applied thread. The material starts with a video - showing some use case. As an example - use case is a ranch and cows - what they eat and produce (manure). From that point on, all questions are tying into the ranch - in terms of XX lbs of manure generates YY kW of power and so how many more cows, less cows, etc., etc. My son is not only able to follow it but understand and appreciate a real-life use case associated with the problems! The complexity also varies. They also have short tutorials and then links talking about manure and ecology, etc. Rather - fantastic! Then what blew AND MY SON was at the end, there's a freaking project!! WTH? All he learned - now he can apply and on the same topic actually do a project applying the maths skills! Wow! From mundane work-sheets to jam sessions and now he's actually doing work like a mini-engineer? The project took him about 2 hrs. There are also games embedded and which I found to be surprisingly tough. My son loves these games - like pattern matching, block matching, puzzles, fuzzy logic, etc. I can't really reveal the questions as its proprietary I guess but as an example a common question is 5346. Ask: What's the smallest number I can get if I am asked to use these digits only once and use all of them? Pretty standard question. What they did was they said its ranches and in total there are 456 cows. Then - hurricane warning, etc. and finally the same question. My son loved it and then actually found a use case of it, in his crayon box!!

I only wish I was allowed to pick and choose topics, then this would have been, for me a killer program. * Supposedly, they have won numerous awards and recognition. From my end I am really liking the program, it's structuring, flow of questions (adaptability), the applied part of it and finally the games. Link: https://giftedandtalented.com
  2. We are planing to transition to MEP math once my girls finish Miquon. So far, I plan to use the review lessons from Year 3 for revision/placement, and then go on to Year 4. Looking at the materials though, there are so many bits and pieces that I'm looking for some feedback from someone who has used the program. Am I right that the main content is in the lesson plans? And if so, do they require the copymasters to teach? And then there are the practice books - extra practice, or central? My aim is not at all to do the least we can get away with, but I really don't know how much to print. My eldest is very math minded. Thank you!
