I have a 13 year old daughter that asked to be HSed. We are suffering in Math and I think she would do well with a more hands on "why" approach.
What do you all think of MAth U See?

I haven't heard of it, but I thought I would share with you a quiz site that has helped my 13 year old brother with his Math. Smile http://www.thatquiz.com

I have a friend who has been using it for years and loves it. I am in the process of looking into it via their web site. It looks like we will be getting it as well. If you have not seen their web you really should go and down load all the samples and information on each level. The web site is mathusee.com. You really should go if you are interested in the curric. Very Happy

My daughter began struggling with math this past year. She is 11. We went ahead and started with Alpha in the fall and she's just completed Gamma. She loves it and best of all she's understanding math. Its well worth the money! You can order a demo DVD for free. We tried school of tomorrow, horizons, and abeka. Math U See has worked out for us the best. Be warned that the concepts are very different from what we learned in public school.

We were going to use the ACE curriculum, but found out that the maths component wasn't up to Australian University entrance standards. Now we're looking at other options - Math-U-See is on offer here. My husband wasn't too keen until he actually looked at, and recognised, the brochure - turns out he had a great experience with it at uni (he said he finally really understood fractions). So now I actually have his support on that choice, at least.

We have used MUS since Kindergarten, and really like it (my dd is in 2nd grade right now). We actually just finished ALPHA not too long ago (started in the 1st grade and finished about halfway in the 2nd) because my daughter had a hard time getting her addition facts down cold. It was kind of discouraging at the time--I felt like she was "behind" other children her age. Boy, am I glad we took the time to really get those facts down! We are breezing through Beta because everything is so much easier when you know your math facts! I have noticed that the children that I felt were "ahead" can only do math if they are sitting down and concentrating, but dd can actually pull up her facts mentally and use them in more "day-to-day" ways.

I got hooked on MUS from a veteran homeschooling mom of 9. Our children are 6 and 4. We simply love it!

What I particularily like is that you do really get those "aha!" moments from your children. And, so far, we've been able to keep it fun and they are completely excited about math. To the point that I have to physically tell them no more.

I ORDRED THE MATH-U-SEE DEMO DVD, IT IS DIFFERENT BUT SOOOOO! NEAT I WAS EVEN HAVING AHA MOMMENTS. I AM GOING TO BE HS MY DD WHO IS 8 AND MY DS WHO 9,FOR THE 2006-2007 SCHOOL YEAR. THIS YEAR OUR LOCAL PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEM CHANGED THEIR MATH CURRICULMN AND THE WHOLE WAY THAT THEY HAVE BEEN TEACHING MATH SINCE MY KIDS BEGAN SCHOOL. IT HAS REALLY THROWN MY 2 KIDS OFF THIS YEAR AS FAR AS MATH GOES. I HAD A MEETING ABOUT MY SON AND THE SCHOOL SYSTEM TOLD ME THAT MY SON AND MY DAUGHTER WERE PROBABLY LD IN MATH , MY SON HAD MADE THE B HONOR ROLL THE LAST NINE WEEKS , HOW CAN SOMEONE ON THE HONOR ROLL BE LD? WELL ANY WAY THEY AREN'T LD MY SON OR DAUGHTER. THEY JUST DON'T GET THIS KNEW MATH CONCEPT IN THE PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEM. BOTH OF MY KIDS HAVE COME TO HATE MATH THIS PAST YEAR AND MY DAUGHTER HAS BECOME AFRIAD OF THE TEACHER AND AFRAID TO ASK, FOR FEAR OF BEING LAUGHED AT AND RIDICULED BY CLASSMATES. THE TEACHER WAS BECOMING SO ANGRY WITH MY DAUGHTER ,BECAUSE SHE JUST WASN'T GETTING IT.MY DAUGHTER WOULD CRY AND NOT WANT TO GO TO SCHOOL.
NOW IT IS UP TO ME TO MAKE MATH FUN FOR THEM AGAIN AND JUST LEARNING IN GENERAL. I HOPE THAT THE MATH-U-SEE MAKES THIS TASK EASIER FOR ME.

I used Math-u-See growing up (as a student not a teacher) and I loved it, it made sense, it was fun and beneficial. Since I have graduated from college and I was well prepared for college math and science.

hope this helps Very Happy

I have used Math-U-See for many years with my three teenagers. I absolutely love it because it is so easy to use. Simply watch the DVD, read the teacher's manual, practice the lesson with the student if needed, do the student text sheets, then take the lesson test. Many students can use the program independently! What could be better than that?
