This is a great curriculum for challenging children to think while having fun at the same time. My only negative, is the difficulty in getting supplemental materials for one student. Jennifer Jensen Review left October 13, 2010 | |||

homeschooler My experience with real math is a good one. But I use the older editions, and they start multiplication in grade 2. So maybe if Robin got a hold of those she would find them more to her daughter's speed. I have learned from friends of mine with kids in the public and private school system, it is quite common to not start multipication until the 4th grade. Maybe Robin needs to talk to her school about advanced placement for her daughter in this course. Any other helpful hints: Get the older editions if you can michelle Review left September 12, 2010 | |||
