justLisa Posted October 3, 2012 Share Posted October 3, 2012 We have reached a sticky point. DS is 3rd grade this year. SM went well last year. We worked through most of 4 and some of MM. This year we started SM 5A and the first part went well. The up to billions and estimation. Now we are on the factor section and we are like this: :confused::confused: It seems like it really ramps up the pace in grade 5. I was thinking of going to MM since it really breaks things down so much and he's not opposed to that (almost prefers since it is so plain and he thinks pictures are childish:glare:). But I don't know. SM is a strong curriculum. I just don't know if I should spend a little time reviewing via MM, or go back and do some of SM 4? I think the problem is he is so good at mental math, but easily forgets the algorithm for say, long division. I don't even see in MM where they cover prime numbers at all.
