Of all the curriculum that we have used over our ten years of homeschooling, Math U See is one program that I can’t imagine homeschooling without. It has provided my children with a solid foundation in math while helping them understand the concepts in addition to memorizing facts and formulas.
As a kid, I was pretty good at math. It was easy for me to memorize formulas and follow the step-by-step process to get the correct answer but I never understood why those formulas worked. Then I watched a demo video of Math U See and could barely contain my excitement because I finally understood why all those formulas and methods actually worked! I was sold on the Math U See curriculum and have enjoyed using it with my children for ten years now.
Here are some of the reasons why we continue to use Math U See in our homeschool.
First, my kids enjoy it! Even my children who struggle in math are excited when the blocks come out. The multi-sensory approach to Math U See allows all of my children to grasp the concepts being taught. When it comes to memorizing facts and formulas my kids can be easily frustrated but Math U See helps minimize the frustration by showing my kids why the problem is solved in a particular way. Math U See has made math time enjoyable even for my math-challenged child!
We also like the clutter-free worksheets. I have a few children who are easily distracted and colorful workbooks filled with pictures often draw their attention away from the actual problem they are supposed to be working on. Math U See has simple black and white pages that makes it easier for my kids to stay focused on the task at hand.
Finally, Math U See continues to provide excellent instruction for the high school years as well. My oldest child will be using Math U See for her calculus instruction this year. She has had success in these more challenging math courses because of the excellent teaching found in Math U See. By watching the DVD’s, reading the instruction manual and checking her work with the detailed, step-by-step solution key, she has been able to complete her high school math courses independently.
From Primer all the way up to Calculus, Math U See has provided my children with an enjoyable learning experience in math as they gain knowledge in the how and the why of mathematical concepts. Check it out for yourself and see if it might be a great fit for your family as well!
