This year, we are using a new math curriculum Math-U-See.
I remember doing "good" in math when I was in school, mostly because I could memorized very well. But teaching this curriculum to the little girls made me realized the logic behind what I have memorized, and that in my opinion is a good thing!
Alpha curriculum, dvd, teacher's manual and student work and test books. We have been using it for a little while and so far are liking it. I like that the kids have a chance to manipulate blocks and making connections in their brain at the same time. The instructions are clear and you can work with your child own pace, not need to hurry things up.
Here is a short clip explaining the Alpha curriculum, for those who are interested in learning more.
Btw the guy talks about letting the kids play with the blocks at home, I do have leggos and duplos for playing, those little block will only be used during math class. I really don't want to loose them, they will be use over and over again.
Hopefully at the end of our school year, will be able to give you a fuller review about it.
How about you all, have you tried Math-U-See?
