does more than subtraction in Beta! I feel like we are missing out on so much. No time, no money, no measuring, no geometry.:glare:

I am using Alpha. I love the blocks and the lessons, but there is more to math than adding!

Please tell me Beta steps up and does more than addition and subtraction because if it doesn't, I'm going back to CLE.

The scope and sequence of each book is on their web site. Beta does touch on money, time, ordinal numbers, perimeter, and a few other things, but it is primarily addition and subtraction. Gamma is primarily multiplication; Delta focuses on division.

So it never teaches the other concepts?:confused:

Well, it's mastery. So, you master basically one (big) concept in each book. But, you review what is already mastered. So, Beta will focus on subtraction but have addition review included. Gamma will focus on multiplication but include some addition & subtraction review and so on. To really benefit from a mastery program....you almost need to use it from beginning to end (or at least to the end). If you do yearly testing with your state, you might have gaps. It's been awhile since we tried MUS, so I can't remember how much instruction in time, money, ect are included.
