I could REALLY use some guidance for math for next year.


Recommended Posts

My son is in 5th grade and will be finishing up MUS Zeta by the end of this year. We got ahead for reasons I will not bore you with. He is not struggling by any means, but I know he would benefit from another year with the basics before moving on to pre-algebra (our plan is Chalkdust pre-algebra in the 7th grade).


Here is my question. For next year, what program should I use. I could use Chalkdust's Basic Math program for 6th graders alongside the supplemental Singapore that we already use. Or I could use a less expensive program like Saxon for a year before moving into Chalkdust. I am not exactly sure which level of Saxon would be appropriate, but am assuming it would be the one just before their pre-algebra course.


Any guidance or direction would be helpful. I want him to have a good foundation, but I don't necessarly want him taking a math vacation for a year.


Thanks in advance,
