Using Math-U-See For Your Home School Math Curriculum
I was introduced to the Math-U-See home school math curriculum over a decade ago. It has been one that I have used extensively, almost "religiously" at times. I have even recommended it to friends when they wanted my suggestion on what to use for home school math with their children.
There are many options available when it comes to homeschool math curriculum so I wanted to be sure to carefully select a program that worked well.
I think I found just that when it comes to Math-U-See and it could be considered one of the best homeschool curriculum options for math.
So, why do I and countless others choose it as our program of choice for grades preschool through high school?

Typically, we follow a teaching schedule similar to this:
First, we watch the DVD on our school TV/DVD player. Next, we work a few problems on our marker board. Then, they work a few problems alone before I release them to complete the entire page. Finally, they take the test after finishing all the practice pages.
The Math-U-See home school math curriculum is a great resource that clearly teaches math concepts to your child. Best of all, it also teaches YOU how to help them see the math principles and gain confidence and mastery!
