Night Elf Posted February 1, 2008 Share Posted February 1, 2008 Because my dd9 specifically asked for a math program on the computer, we looked into Teaching Textbooks. She did the placement test and solidly placed into Level 7. She loved working with the program and made it to Lesson 42 when she started to fall apart. Honestly, she was understanding the math and getting the answers right, but she felt overwhelmed with the process. Specifically, it was fractions with LCD that required 3+ steps to solve that made her feel like it was too much. Because of her age, I decided to back off TT7 for a little while. There is no rush and Math is her absolute favorite subject. So I go to the Teacher store and buy MCP Level F. The first few lessons were just review so we talked through those. Then she started the lessons. The lesson on exponents surprised her, though again, she totally understood what was happening and why. Then in my quest for a teacher book, I discovered Level F is 6th grade. Ugh! I thought I was buying a 5th grade book! She feels guilty that I've purchased the book already and wants to continue with it but I can tell she was disappointed. She was looking forward to 5th grade. My guess is because she was so tired of "big math" from TT7. I've heard TT7 is more like 6th grade. What about MCP? If we're looking for not-too-close to prealgebra, what level MCP should I get?
