SorrelZG Posted February 3, 2012 Share Posted February 3, 2012 Yes .. I'm on break! But since the thought occurred to me while reading a thread on the other board, I had to ask. I know many of you who have used MM (or perhaps this relates to other math programs as well) use the chapter tests as way to gauge whether you child even needs to be doing that chapter or whether he/she can skip it and that has been helpful in not continuing to waste my son's (and my) time in MM1 and relieve a lot of frustration BUT ... I noticed particularly in chapter 7 recently that there seems to be a lot more within the chapter than what is reviewed on the test so that got me thinking .. if DS passes the test (which he did) did he still miss something by not going all the way through the chapter? It's one I really had trouble figuring out what might be necessary, what might not be so I had just jumped to the test to see how that went. What if that is the case in other chapters? But then I'm wondering on the other hand, how much of this is really essential to the mathematical understanding of any child and how much is just .. I don't know .. "Math Mammoth" .. if that makes sense. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
