Does anyone have experience with either of these? My DD11 is finishing up Singapore 5B and we are trying to decide between Chalk Dust Basic Math and then continuing with CD for Pre-Algebra and beyond OR do Singapore 6a/b and then move into Mr. D Math for Pre-Algebra and beyond. Any advice?

We do Mr. D math through a live co-op class in Tampa.  We did pre-algebra last year and are doing Algebra I this year.  My son loves it.  I love it too because it requires absolutely zero input from me.  He watches the video and does the work.  Mr. D offers two live help sessions a week in which students can log in to get live help if they need it.

My kids are both taking math classes through the live co-op in Tampa with Mr. D. math.   DS is taking Geometry this year and took Algebra I last year.   DD is taking Pre-Algebra this year.   We have no experience with Chalk Dust.

 

I love Mr. D. because the curriculum is challenging enough without being overwhelming.   It's a mastery based approach, with online quizzes for each section and spiral reviews every 3 sections.   Everything is done online.   Occasionally one will forget a concept from class, and will go back to watch the pre-recorded video for that section, but neither has ever needed the online help sessions.   Mr. D. also teaches readiness courses for 6 weeks over the summer, and both of my kids have done those and liked them.

thank you so much for this! I was especially curious if Mr. D taught using a mastery method, which is what we want! Thanks again!
