MrsMe Posted September 27, 2012 Share Posted September 27, 2012 (edited) Last year we used CLE. Not bad, but the jumping around. YIKES! Also, there were so many errors in the TM I got a direct line to the error "person" at CLE. I also hear they're having problems with the level 6 TM as well. sigh. It's a little annoying to say the least when you find you mark your kids' equations wrong when they're right. But really the jumping of concepts was a little daunting. This year I opted for Rod & Staff. I knew the mastery would be a bit better with a bit of review at the end, without overkill mastery. But the lack of worksheets is completely annoying. DD does some in the book, some not due to space. It's a pain because there's 1 a), b) blah, blah... But the TM is useless IMO. Some reviews have no answers for this unmathy mom, plus the answers in a division problem for example only has the bottom line answer. So I have to do the entire equation to see which line dd got wrong. I Don't Want To! Not only that, that will be a huge problem as we move up in level. And on my not so good brain days, like today:tongue_smilie:....I'm at my wits end with the lack of teacher helps. At least if I had some line by line answers and I didn't get the problem I can figure it out. With just a bottom line answer....ugh! At least in CLE I could read the directions & or answers, AND dd could read the directions, and we could figure it out. BJU is way too busy for dd and me, too expensive and just too much of everything. I despise "wierd" math terms used by certain programs. And I don't like MM or MUS. What out there is good, basic, solid math that has a good TM and workbook? Level 5 or 6 depending upon it's difficulty for a mom that stinks at math. And don't go Asian on me. :scared: Edited September 27, 2012 by alilac Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
