A WINNER!!!

We have 7 kids and MathMammoth has worked with all of them who have used it so far! With the last little guy coming up, there is no doubt that he will be using it as well. Our first child did another math program and scored terribly on state tests. I knew something had to change! (Poor first kids! LOL!) We switched to MathMammoth and all the kids using it have tested several grades above since! The program is not too teacher-intensive for a momma needing to help multiple kids and they are all learning so much! This homeschool momma is *very* happy we found MathMammoth!!! Oh, and we found it through a friend who worked for NASA and told me it was an excellent program! She KNEW what she was talking about! :D

Great Resource!

I purchased Grade 6 set as a resource for my rising 6th grade daughter as she continues her math studies over the summer. She is public schooled and has qualified for 7th grade math but will be a 6th grader in the fall. She took the 6th grade end of year assessment that MM provides on ttheir website and realized that she has some gaps in 3-4 key areas. She is studying those areas this summer so she can have solid foundation for Math 7 this fall. I love this series because the written explanations are so good! Shipment arrived timely. No issues at all. Wish this series continued past Grade 7!

Best Maths Curriculum

Math Mammoth is the best maths curriculum we have used. The children are getting much faster with their mental maths strategies, which are encouraged throughout all of the Math Mammoth curriculum. Being a home schooling Mum, who was not good at Maths when I was at school, I am learning more than I have ever learnt, and understanding the decimals and fractions, which I have never understood!

Math Mammoth

I was a math major in college and have been a math teacher as well, and I LOVE these books. I have liked all levels of Math Mammoth, and I think the 6th grade level is excellent. Very nicely laid out, easy to understand, wonderful examples and appropriately challenging problems. This is not your "normal" math program- it goes beyond the basics. Make sure to take the placement tests to see where your child should start the program. (don't base it on grade level). This program is wonderful!!

love the program but printed books have no color

I am LOVING math mammoth. I only give 3 stars because I ended up returning the printed books--I thought they would be in color as the online samples show, but everything was black and white. My learner does better w/ color so I returned them and got the downloads so i could print myself in color. Rather disappointing as I was hoping to avoid that. The product description should be clear on this point!

This is my fourth year to choose Math Mammoth as our Math curriculum. I love the open and go nature of it as well as the emphasis on mental math and understanding the concepts. I've learned a lot through Math Mammoth that I didn't learn in school :)

I used the Grade 5 set and was very pleased with the instruction, and the amount of problems without tons of repetition. This is NOT a spiraling curriculum, but for quick mastery with children who grasp concepts easily and do not need a lot of practice.

My daughter had used the Saxon Math program at her old school, and the Math Mammoth series was a much better fit for her. Using this series was the first time in years that I've heard her say "I'm actually pretty good in math." We have loved the Grade 5 series, and are excited to get into the grade 6 series next year.

like that it's self taught, mastery program. Inexpensive. Very easy to use by student. They can just read it and do the ex, all in the same book!

This is the best math curriculum I've found. Wasn't happy with Teaching Textbooks, not enough math problems and thinking skills incorporated. I like to have hard copy of my workbooks, much easier than printing and binding on my own.

My kids (ages 11 and almost 10) are doing well. Neither of them enjoy Math, but these workbooks are well equipping them to compute all kinds of math problems.

I have used the Math Mammoth series for 3 years, and I have no complains. The material provides enough instruction for students to learn the objectives, but not so much they grow bored.

She has finished with Teaching Textbooks Pre-Alegra and I want to go back over the concepts to make sure they are solidified in her brain. I figure a different way of teaching the same subject will give her more memory to pull from.

They are printed in black and white. There are only a few times that color matters for one of the problems and I've always been able to figure out a way around it. For me, the lower cost of black and white is totally worth not having color.
