Category Description for MCP Mathematics (2005 Edition):

MCP Math has been around for many years with the latest revision in 2005 (pre-common core): solid program with a good balance of math mechanics and math reasoning, at an affordable price. MCP uses a research-based approach that incorporates direct instruction, guided practice, and independent practice for mastery of the concepts. Students then apply the learned concepts using problem-solving strategies.

Every level's Student Edition is a workbook and each lesson is two pages. Graphics are black and white with an accent color and offer a worked example when a new concept is presented. Problem-solving lessons allow an opportunity for students to apply the skills they have learned, and Chapter Challenge pages provide practice of new skills. "It's Algebra" pages are lessons that will help in preparation for algebra. Chapter tests are found at the end of every chapter; and to help keep skills sharp, cumulative assessments are included at the end of every chapter in grades 1-6. At the kindergarten level, instruction and stories are found in the teacher edition, so it is required to complete the student pages. Minimal instruction is found at the bottom of each page for completion, but there is no lesson content in the student workbook. Each two-page lesson covers one main objective or concept and offers a visual model and practice. Both workbook pages are used with direct instruction by the parent/teacher as they explain the model or process and identify symbols to teach the lesson. As the levels progress (1-6), the student editions include more instruction, but there will always be the direct instruction component for use with the first page of each lesson, found in the teacher edition. The second page for levels 1-6 are for practice of the concept. You will also find calculator lessons in grades 3-6, for incorporating technology and the concepts learned.

Teacher Editions are packed full of useful information and guidance. The front of each book is an uncomplicated explanation for how to use both the student and teacher books. An explanation of the four-step lesson plan (used in this series) and assessments is also included, along with a scope and sequence for grades K through 6. The teacher edition includes small format student pages with answers and the four-step lesson plan printed in the margins of the pages. The four-step lesson plan includes: 1) Getting Started; 2) Teach; 3) Practice; 4) Assess. "Getting Started" includes objectives, vocabulary, materials, a mental math warm up (I love this), and pencil and paper warm up. "Teach" is where the concept or skill is being taught and may use some manipulatives or items from around your home, but they aren't required. "Practice" is using the pages of the lesson in the student workbook and working through the beginning of each in a guided fashion then having the student finish independently. This section may also include some fun hands-on type activities for reinforcement. "Assess" is a variety of opportunities to informally assess the student's grasp of the concept. Also, included in the teacher notes are suggestions for teaching students with mixed abilities, extension activities, and enrichment. Some suggestions may be for a group or classroom setting, so you may have to adapt. Alternate tests for each chapter are found in the back of the teacher edition, and the kindergarten level even includes additional reproducibles.

Homeschool Bundles are available for this program, which include the student edition, teacher edition, and parent guide at a slightly lower price. The Parent Guide included in the Homeschool Bundles is a brochure that lists the bundle contents, gives an overview of the curriculum, how to use the materials, lesson preparation, and suggestions for adapting the curriculum to fit you and your student.

I have always been a fan of this curriculum with its constant review and incorporation of good math thinking skills. For those who don't want math curriculum that has been rewritten to align to common core standards, MCP is a solid math choice. ~ Donna

Simple, effective math lessons not conformed to common core

I enjoyed this program with my kindergartner so I wanted to use the same for 1st.

I am looking for a straight forward math program to use in preparation for Saxon. It's very hard to find a program that isn't too frilly, yet not too boring. This seems to be right down the middle.

I chose this bundle because my student was bored with the spiral style curriculum we were using. She does well with the mastery style. After looking at sample pages for many different curriculums, I decided on this one because it is visually appealing and in the style my student does best with. I, as her teacher, like that it appears to be set up like a textbook. I grew up in public school so I know my way around a textbook. That was maybe the most appealing thing about this bundle.

I needed a simplified/basic and cheaper math program. I was using Horizon but cost of two student books for one kid per year is to much(I'll be teaching 3 kids in another year) and I was having a hard time tracking their progress. To many colors for my daughter and to distracting.

My daughter finished the previous math curriculum, and we're pleased with it so far, so will continue until we aren't. She finished the K level curriculum in one semester.

Does this curriculum cover the whole school year? Or just a semester?
A shopper on Jul 20, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it covers the entire school year! It’s a great product and I highly recommend it!

Buy this! You will not be disappointed.
6 units in, and we are well pleased.
Read Cathy Duffy's review regarding the teacher manual, spot on. I wish that I had started here rather than the others we tried. Namely that it is clear and so helpful to leading your child through understanding math, without overwhelming you or them. Do not pass up the teacher manual! I have found it to be so helpful that we do not have to depend so much on worksheets, yet the student text has what you may need when that time comes.
Be in mind that this is not a flashy glossy curriculum. It is you and your child deciding, with help from the manual, how to best approach math that suits your need. It is not overly scripted, but not void of important points to cover.

This is what I have been looking for.
I was using MUS before this. While I loved the black and white, uncluttered format, I felt that I wanted just a little more "umph". MCP fits the bill in that it's black and white, while having a little more flair to keep interest. I also did not like being tied to using the blocks with MUS at every lesson. While I understand that using manipulatives is an important part of learning math, I wanted my child to know that there are other ways to come to the answer as well. Like counting fingers, or counting little pictures, or pointing in the air to count. Sometimes we still bust out the blocks or other manipulatives, but it's not imperative with this program. I think that there is a good amount of material covered each year, while still being mastery-based. And I love the workbook style. I do feel that I could have used this workbook without the teacher's manual, but it's still nice to have in case I find a time when I need some other ideas to get a concept across. It's quality that is affordable. Plus, when the lesson is done, my child loves to color the pictures.
