I love math u see. My daughter was disappointed in math and saying she didn’t like it anymore when I decided to change to Math-u-see. After just a few days she changed her attitude towards math and now enjoys her classes most of the time. They are not “fun” per se, but since they are sequential and easy to follow she can do them at her own pace, completing as many worksheets for one lesson as she needs before moving on to the next one. We are completely satisfied.
I have been using Math u See for my three children and the five year old has been watching the dvd with his brother and sister and now does the lessons with ease because he has been seeing the concepts along the way which has made it simple so fa for him. My two older children are doing well using this curriculum for math. My daughter was having difficulty with division but when we switched to MUS she got the concept easily and is moving on. When concepts are hard to comprehend for some children this curriculum helps to clear them up.
I would pick either primer or alpha for my oldest son. I would pick primer for my youngest son. I have been looking at Math U See for my home school!
