Yes, No, Maybe So...

They miss Fred. I miss Fred. Fred made math fun, and interesting. I think we might shift back toward Fred.

IF we were to do this, I think I would have The Girl start with Edgewood, and go forward from there. I would have The Boy start with Fractions, followed by Decimals & Percents, and then start Pre-Algebra 1 with Biology*

(*people I know who have used these books say that Elementary Physics really should come after both Pre-Algebra books, so I'm taking their word for it)

I've read many testimonials of people who swear this gives their kids a good, solid math education. And I like that the series makes kids think... it is not just page after page of rote mathematics.

Hmmmmmmmm..... that would give us more time for Family Math and Family Math: The Middle School Years, and reading living math books... after all, I really do want to read through this book (and a few others) with the kids at some point!

In the meantime, I think we'll play around with this, yet another math book I have had sitting on the shelf, unused.

  1. Tis' the season for being indecisive about which materials to use. Good luck with your decisions!


What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.

Thanks for stopping by! I love comments :)
