affordable substitute for MUS Alpha

Recommended Posts

My son just finished MUS Primer, and like his brothers before him I was just going to move him to Alpha, but right now it is so expensive, especially for how quickly he's whizzing through the pages.  The learning style works for him so I don't want to completely change that part up, but is there something cheaper that I can still use the C-rods with?   It does not need to coordinate with the lecture DVD obviously.  We quit using those a long time ago.

 

For what it's worth, we only use MUS Primer and Alpha and then move to TT3 after that.  Thanks

Have you looked for it used? Try homeschool classifieds or eBay or home educators resource. If there is some writing you can always hand copy those pages.

 yes, unfortunately it's super hard to find used, even partially written in

 

Could you look at the table of contents for alpha and just make it up yourself on a white board?

well... yes, I could do that, but it sounds like so much work  :laugh: 

 

one of my favorite things is for this kid, Math is pretty independent which is one less thing for me to spend time on...

Do you use the fact practice on the Math U See site? I'd make sure he knew his addition/subtraction facts then you could probably begin TT3. I've never used TT before, but have heard they run about a grade behind. Second grade math is usually all the addition/subtraction facts plus multiplication 1, 2, 5, 10 at minimum.

Math U See is based on Mortensen Math, and so is Crewton Ramone.  You might browse around his site to see what the individual pricing for books are. http://www.crewtonramoneshouseofmath.com/

 

Or Geoff White - http://geoffwhite.ws/ , or go directly to Mortensen Math's website to browse and see your options. http://www.mortensenmathdirect.com/

 

If you just want similar but don't mind having to sit and work with him, then any c-rod based program should work.

Send me a pm.

 

I have an intact Alpha level that is used but not written in. The binding is removed. My kids completed it with wet erase markers and dry erase pockets.
