5.0 / 5.04 Reviews5 Stars4 Stars3 Stars2 Stars1 Stars40000Great 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 34 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! Was this review helpful? Yes (2) No (0)

Best Maths CurriculumMath 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 MammothI 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!! Was this review helpful? Yes (2) No (0)

We have loved the Grade 5 series, and are excited to get into the grade 6 series next year.E Allison W on Mar 7, 2018like that it's self taught, mastery program. Inexpensive. Very easy to use by student.

I have never ordered the colored version. I have seen sample pages though and there is not a lot of color compared to something like Singapore Math's Primary Mathematics. You may want to try to find some sample pages to look at to see if your child needs the colored version or not. We bought this set, and I simply highlight the important information as we go over the lesson with my son.

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. Reply
