I waited a couple months before submitting this review to be sure it would be most accurate It will help your child become familiar with the topics that are included on standardized tests Little to no teacher prep is required We found however that it did not in any way assist with a solid foundation in mastering math facts It assumes too much that your child is solid in this area It jumps from one topic to another and is definitely not traditional in its approach to teaching math It's very similar to what public schools are now attempting with math instruction If that's what you're after than this will work well for you We switched to a more traditional curriculim as this is what our child needed I will however continue to use math mammoth as a supplement It does aid in critical thinking and mental math in ways that other programs do not

Great Curriculum!
We used Abeka math for kindergarten and was not impressed at all, honestly even for me, the teacher it was boring. After much research, we went with Math Mammoth and have now been using it for six months and so glad! I love how it teaches the same concept in different ways (number lines, math problems, a few story problems) and moves relatively quickly, but not too fast, really at a nice, steady pace. The recommended games are fun and useful when you need something different. Manufacturer includes teachings on learning a clock and $ and even recommends using this if needing a break. Most of it is self-directed by the child with directions needing read aloud by the educator. Will certainly be using this for grade 2 as well.

Just what we were lookibg for
My son turned 6 in Feb this year. He has always had a thing for numbers. I did countless reviews on every curriculum out there. I wasn't pleased. With that being said, I didn't but anything until math mammoth...I have been completely satisfied. For it to be the first curriculum we have used, I look forward to many years of using with my 2 up coming homeschooling kiddos. Everything is laid out. Simple instruction. Straight to the point. No extra fluff. Most importantly, my son loves it. That's what makes me happy??

Great program!
Last year my child had a hard time with math. The program was spiral (which I love) but it took to long to review previous concepts. With Math Mammoth, we get a lot of math problems to work on then come back to previous concepts much faster. So I guess you would say it is a shorter spiral. I found this is be a great mix between mastery and spiral learning.

Every child is different, but some of the concepts moved along to quickly and some dragged on a bit. Would have loved to have more review also. My son is an average student, and finished the first book in one month.

Was recommended to me by a math teacher who homeschools her children.

A good friend of mine uses this curriculum for her daughters, and another friend of ours that is a retired elementary school teacher gave her approval to the way the curriculum is set up. Both recommended it to me for my son.

I was looking for a simple math curriculum for my advanced Kindergartener
Bethany K on Sep 29, 2016
This has great reviews and we wanted to try it out. We started with Kindergarten Singapore last year, and had heard several recommendations for Saxon, so we switched to that for 1st grade level, but my daughter has not been enjoying it recently (she loves math). So we are going to give this a try!
Natalie M on Sep 13, 2016
My sister told me about Math Mammoth. Currently, we are using textbooks, and it's not working as well as I would like. I'm excited to try this curriculum!

I saw it recommended on the Homeschool Buyer's Co-op, so I went to the Math Mammoth website to check it out. The video on their page explaining the product was very good, so I decided to give it a try.

Thought the visual learning format would help my daughter with Down syndrome progress in math. Very difficult for her.

Is the math mammoth light blue series the common core standards aligned version?
A shopper on Feb 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I teach in the public schools and use Mammoth math with my daughters at home when my husband homeschools, and from what I have seen, it is aligned, but it adds a few other grade appropriate topics that may not be covered in the Common Core curriculum (notably money and time in level 1)
Is the math mammoth light blue series the common core standards aligned version?
A shopper on Feb 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, and the author goes through a thorough explanation of her opinion on Common Core (source: "Math Mammoth Common Core" page):

"My decision to align Math Mammoth Light Blue Series in 2011 to the CCS was based solely on these facts: 1) The standards themselves are reasonable. 2) At the time (2011), practically all the states had decided to adopt them.

Even now, after seeing all the turmoil over them, I still feel that Math Mammoth, being aligned, can help many homeschoolers (those who use charter schools, for example). And, the alignment has not made Math Mammoth materials any worse, so those who don't have to worry about the standards are not hurt by using MM."
