Math U See
I have used Math U See since my first one started kindergarten six years ago. Not only do the children love it, I love it. Math is a subject I have struggled with my whole life. When I made the choice to homeschool the first thing I thought was "How the heck can I teach them math!" I was guided to find this program and have been blessed for using it and I have learned right alongside my children. My favorite part of the program is the teacher DVD, I just have the kids watch the current lesson they are on (with Mom secretly taking notes and learning herself) and complete the worksheets in the student book or work out problems together with no worksheet. Steve Demme, the founder and writer of the program, teaches each lesson in a fun and exciting way, yes, he makes math fun! My oldest has always look at math as a game or puzzle to figure out and he loves it. So not only is the DVD awesome I also have a teachers guidebook that has a teacher key for each student worksheet. It not only has the answer but the steps to come up with that answer. Many times I have been stuck and go to the teacher guide and then I have my "Oh, that is how you do it" moment. I hate to admit but Big Man has me beat when it comes to math now, we have always had a friendly competition going and he has now surpassed me and teaches me!
