We are using Math U See for our boys. They are doing wonderful and love it so far. However another mama told us that once our children get to fractions; we'd have issues with the program because Mr. Demme teaches it in a manner that we won't understand. I guess we learned fractions a different way. Also she said that the program would make it hard for her to understand math concepts done in a different manner.
Now my 2 cents is that I plan on homeschooling them throughout high school anyhow so them having to adapt to the public school method of doing math problems doesn't worry me in the slightest. Also it would seem to me that if your child has a clear understanding of how to do math than they should catch on to a different method fairly easily.
Those of you who used this program past 4th grade; I'd like to hear your opinions. Thanks :)
