Math Mammoth is da bomb!!!

Recommended Posts

I love the way Math Mammoth teaches dividing fractions. It's the explanation that I always needed but never had. I had never used this curriculum before. I was just unhappy with all the other ways of teaching I had come across in my current math curriculum. I downloaded this and now I'm hooked. My son is understanding without a hitch.

Yep, MM rocks. I probably have posted about this more than any other subject in my extensive 2 month experience with homeschooling! ;) If it weren't for MM, I would be seriously considering slitting my wrists right now. DD has come *so far* with it, and I am confident that she is finally getting the math education she deserves!!!!

In what section does she teach dividing fractions? We're switching to MM either in January or May, and I've already download the Light Blue 4-5-6th grades, so if you tell me what section it's taught in, I can take a peek.

I just downloaded the fractions 2 in the blue series. I think it combines the fraction lessons from grades 5 and 6. I've been doing about a section a day with ds. Some days it's 2 pages ad sometimes 4. There have been a couple of days that we didn't finish, or I felt he needed another day on a topic. Even though this wasn't all about dividing fractions, the previous lessons were a nice intro. So, even though we had covered adding and multiplication, I went ahead and re-did those using her methods. I think it helped.

 

We're gonna start the grade 6 after the 1st. This is back-tracking a little for us, but since the concepts are presented a little differently, I thought it wouldn't hurt to run though all of it.

My internet service is so spotty at home that we have a hard time watching videos online. It's a terrible thing. I miss so much.

You know I love when I hear + MM stories. We *love* MM here.

We use a combo of light blue MM and Horizons (purely for added flavor, though we've used all the MM supplements with as much success). MM works really, really well with my kids.

I had a panic moment one day and emailed Maria in a "What should I do, what should I do?" state, and she got right back to me. Amazing customer service!
