Guest rozcraft Posted November 4, 2012 Share Posted November 4, 2012 Fellow HS Moms in the trenches, I am really starting to panic about the math curriculum for my son who has special needs but is higher functioning. Initially, I was told by others how great MUS would be for him. So, I bought it and I'm not sure if it's working for us. Here are reasons why it's not working (maybe): 1. The book I am using (beta) is used and I erase used pages as I get to it. I feel like we are intruding on the previous work that's been done in it and mathtime seems cluttered. 2. I am not getting this feeling like, "Wow look at what we learned today." This is because in the two years we switched to Saxon and came back to MUS because Saxon math books (1 and 2) was just too busy work. 3. I don't care for math and am not the best at it. I did make it through to Geometry and then dropped out of Trig. I just ordered 2 books to look over: Progress in Mathematics and JUMP at Home Math grade 3. I figure that if I don't enjoy teaching MUS then, it doesn't help my son, right? I am not strong in math, and I think my son is more teachable than I give him credit for. He is asking to learn multiplication, thanks to his Brain Age Nintendo Dsi game, and I am petrified thinking about the best way to teach him. Do you think I'm on the right track here?:bigear: Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
