I found this math program last year for my 5th grade math whiz-kid (We don't know where that one child got it from!) After skipping two years of Saxon and still being bored I decided to look at something else for him and this fit the bill perfectly It was challenging and economical and the online support was amazing Using Art of Problem Solving's website we were able to access fabulous videos for each lesson My son loved the instructor because he was both clear and engaging Furthermore they have an online learning system--Alcumus--that is currently free We used this as a supplement to the book and although it does not cover all the material in the text it was a great help for the sections that overlap Finally the answer manual is very well done with detailed solutions explained thoroughly which was a good thing since I needed help remembering things I haven't learned in years Overall we were very very pleased with this text and the supporting website features We can't recommend it highly enough!

Is this math common core aligned?
A shopper on Feb 1, 2019
BEST ANSWER: This math program, if you read the description on their website, is not for the faint of heart. If it wasn't common core aligned Nothing would be. This is the kind of math that kids who compete in competitions use. It's so in-depth and difficult that your child should have a very good grasp of math going in. My daughter was in tears the first few chapters, which were harder. Now she gets it and it's very good for her but it isn't easy. It doesn't do rote problems or repeat the same example over and over. Each problem tests their ability to understand different concepts. She said it gets much easier after the first quarter of the book. It still challenges her but now she likes it.
