Homeschool Review Math Mammoth

I can't tell you how much we love this program. First it's a program you can buy a download to so you can print the pages as many times as you need. This is perfect for us since I can have Nathan work the pages and then the twins can follow him when they are ready all for one low cost. We've been using the program for just over 9 months now and I'm amazed at how easy it is to teach. I've never been a math person and most math concepts go right over my head. However since starting this program with the kids I've picked up on several concepts. This program is very very similar to Singapore Math.
There is loads of practice built into the lesson. Great for kids who struggle and it's easy to skip problems if it's a concept your child picks up on quickly. We do about 1-3 pages a day depending on how well each child picks up on the concept.
This is not a self teaching program. But the teachers notes are right on the paper so it's very easy to just go down the worksheet and do the teaching and problems.
We also love all the links to websites that offer games to practice the concepts your learning. My kids think they are playing on websites and yet they are getting even more practice done in math.
Another great feature of this program is you could even use this with your kids in public school. They offer workbooks for extra practice which you could use to help enforce what your child is learning in school.
