Looking for a good math curriculum, desperate, help please. (PIOG)
I'm desperate, I am trying to find a good math curriculum that is easy to teach and has the lessons already laid out for you. So far I am on strike two for math. I got systematic math, and there is no instructors guide or how to teach it, just a book full of math problems, can't get the DVD set until he is in 6th grade, (he's a 5th grader now). Second one I got was Singapore math, and I really am not liking how it looks, the instructor guides are more confusing to me, than having nothing at all.
So here is what I am looking for, since I suck at math to start with, I need something that is easy to teach, or has CD'/videos, etc that show you how to do it, and doesn't cost an arm and a leg, around $100 or less. My DS loves math and seems to pick up concepts fairly quickly, but I still want something that uses more of a mastery based system, rather than a spiral based system. We are starting our second week and I really need to get something fairly quick. Right now we are just reviewing and working on some things that he seems to have trouble with, but he seems to have that down now, so I am desperate to get something really soon. Thank you.
