Math in Focus explains math well and helps children understand math in a way that helps them be able to succeed in upper level math courses.

Trying to find a math program that fits the needs of a struggling student. This was not a good fit. This was not very homeschool friendly.

This product was recommended to me as suitable for kids who are not mathematically inclined because of its quality explanations. I hope it lives up to the hype! :)

Does all the practice has answer sheet or just part?

It has all answers but it doesn't completely show you how to work out all the problems.

The teacher's book shows exactly what is in the student's book (which goes through all of the lesson which explains how to do those particular set of problems) and it provides the answers to all of the questions. The answers are in red, so they are easy to see. It shows solutions for the lesson questions and the practice questions your child will do on their own. It also gives lots of helpful tips and tricks as side notes on each page, and breaks down each lesson into days (so you know how much would normally be covered in 1 day, each lesson says how many days it takes to cover).

If you are looking for details on how to solve each practice problem this will not provide that (I think the solution manual does though, so that might be what you want if you need help working the problems).

For me, the nice thing about this teacher's book is all the helpful tips that definitely aid in my teaching of the lessons, and the way they break down each lesson into how many days. And, of course, having the answers to correct work!

They do supply the answers but explanations to the answers are few and far between. I've had to google a lot. It helps me to figure out how to explain to my daughter how to solve the problems. Overall I'm pretty happy with my purchase. The teachers book helps me to lesson plan. I also bought the tests and extra practice. I would recommend them if you go with this curriculum.

I am only in chapter 1 of this course. I do not like the format of the text as much as previous Math in Focus curricula. The teacher's manual does provide the answers so far. It feels less user friendly than previous editions.

The teacher's guide does provide all the answers from the text but a lot do not explain how they got the answers. That was the frustrating part about this book.

Yes, we would not be able to make it without the teachers book. It explains the lesson provides extra problems and walks you through the answers.

If I purchase Math in Focus Course 1 Grade 6 Homeschool Kit 1st Semester and Math in Focus Course 1 Grade 6 Homeschool Kit 2nd Semester, I only need to also purchase Math in Focus Course 1 Assessments. (which is the workbook that would be for both semesters, right?) Would this be complete or do I need something else?

I have previously used Primary Mathematics Standards Edition which required the home instructor's guide, textbook, and workbook for each semester. I just want to make sure I am purchasing the complete set...

I never had to purchase the assessments, but according to their description one set (order) of assessments covers both semesters. The assessments aren't workbooks, but almost like tests for your child to make sure they're mastering the material. Hope this helped.

yes that is correct. you only need to purchase the homeschool kit for both semesters and one assessment book because it covers both semesters
