Category Description for Math-U-See:

We are excited to now offer this "tried and true" homeschool favorite math program! It sets itself apart from other math curricula with its focus on creating effective problem solvers who understand the underlying concepts in math and can apply math to real life situations. Honestly, as an adult, how many of us wish we would have learned math in this manner?

Following a 3-step learning method: build, write, and say, Math U See is truly multisensory.

Each level offers DVD instruction for the parent/teacher and student, manipulatives (through Geometry level), and worksheets for mastery of math concepts evidenced by the students ability to teach the parent the concept by the end of the lesson. Because Math-U-See (MUS) is mastery-based, students may enter the program at any level depending on their concept proficiency. The authors have chosen to use the Greek alphabet to demonstrate the sequence of concepts taught rather than a grade level. It is highly recommended that all students (unless beginning with Primer) take a placement test (opens in new window) to ensure mastery of any previously taught concepts. Placement tests are now readily available at rainbowresource.mathusee.com/

Lessons follow a similar format. Watch the DVD lesson (parent first and then child/parent), work through lesson examples in the instruction manual together, and complete worksheets. Each lesson concludes with a test. Cumulative unit tests are scheduled regularly to assure students retain previous teaching. Each level concludes with a final test covering all concepts taught. These tests begin in Alpha, not Primer.

Lets explore the components necessary for success. Instructional DVDs are available in the Universal and Level Up Sets (more info on sets below). The DVDs provide parent-teachers an introduction to the MUS vision and methodology before transitioning to instructional lessons. Teaching lessons are designed to be viewed by the parent first, followed by the student and parent (or student only at the upper levels or as the student demonstrates the ability to view independently). Each teaching segment is 5-8 minutes in length and is taught in front of a group of students and parents, which you occasionally hear responding (or building with the manipulatives). The camera is focused on Mr. Demme, who explains and demonstrates the lessons on a large white board with magnetic manipulatives (or drawings). Lessons are clearly explained and easy to follow. Integral to the program, the DVDs provide much needed teaching support.

Also essential is the Math U See Instruction Manual.

This hardcover book provides a curriculum sequence and introductory "how-to-use" information that outlines the MUS four-step teaching process: Prepare for the lesson, present the new topic, practice for mastery, and progress after mastery. Teaching instruction with example problems for each lesson, solutions for the worksheets and tests, and a helpful glossary and index are included. The instruction is not scripted but is clearly presented and easy to implement.

Demme Learning Consumable student worktexts

contain a mix of practice problems and word problems. Space is provided to work out the problems, but some students may prefer having access to "scratch paper" to work problems, especially at the higher levels. The front of the student worktext includes space to record grades for worksheet pages and tests.

Demme Learning Consumable test booklets

are provided to evaluate student progress. Parents are encouraged to reteach previous lessons if the student does not do well. Mastery is the goal, and lessons build upon one another so that future success is dependent on students really knowing the previous concept.

Demme Learning Manipulatives Integer Block Set

Additional components include the Integer Block Set, a 133-piece manipulative blocks set that is used from Primer through Algebra 1. This is a set of plastic interlocking blocks with blocks in different colors designed to represent each number from one through ten (there is a hundred block as well). A Fraction Overlay Kit is utilized in the Epsilon course to teach fractions. This set is color-coordinated with the Integer Block Set to aid students in learning fractions. Beginning with Zeta and utilized through Algebra 1 is the Algebra/Decimal Insert Kit which is used with the Integer Block Kit to teach advanced decimal and algebra concepts. Finally, the optional Skip Count CD and Songbook is a suggested complement to the Primer through Gamma courses and will help your student learn their skip counting and addition facts. There are two versions of the songs on the CD, one with Christian lyrics and the other with the lyrics taken from science and literature. The Primer through Gamma Universal Kits include online access to the Skip Count Songs MP3s and songbook PDF. Please note, the online Skip Count MP3 includes the Science and Literature lyrics and not the Christian version.

Math U see Primer

Unlike the other levels, Primer, the entry level, is designed to provide a broad overview and introduction to various math topics which will be mastered in a later level. Teaching children that math is fun and leading them to love math is the goal at this level. With this big picture approach, this course lends itself to children who are beginning to recognize numbers but have not mastered counting to ten verbally or are unable to recognize the numbers 0 to 10. If your child is comfortable with both and is ready for formalized instruction, the Alpha Placement Test is recommended.

As mentioned, the elementary books are taught sequentially and are

We love Math u See. Have done this with my daughter, who has struggled some with dislexia. Started over at the beginning, with some vision therapy and she is progressing steadily.
Sarah B on Oct 31, 2018
We have used another Math-U-See program and really like it. I would like to try it for my other children as well. I love the hands on visual approach. I think it makes the concepts easier to grasp. I like knowing why you do things, not just memorizing formulas, etc.
Karen S on Oct 11, 2018
We love this math system. Makes math fun and understandable :)

This is our 4th homeschool year using Math-U-See, I love their approach to hand on, level mastery math.
User on Aug 8, 2018
Math U See is a game-changer. Lots of folks state it is too simple, but if you stick with the program, I feel that it isn't simple, it's just ordered differently.
Callie F on Aug 6, 2018
We have been using math-u-see since primer and it works for us.

Works very well for all my children who each have their own learning styles and has very good and understandable building blocks. Advances well and seems to be ahead of other curriculums of the same grade.
Katie C on Feb 28, 2018
I have used other Math u See grade levels and thought they were wonderful. Easy to use independently and my kids loved them.

Which one to get if Beta seems too easy for student and Gamma too difficult?
A shopper on Aug 12, 2019
BEST ANSWER: First, let me say that Math U See is awesome! It is THE math curriculum. I don't use anything else now, since switching from Abeka my first year. Keep up the good work in searching for the curricula that works for you.
As far as which level to get if Beta is too easy, and Gamma too difficult...there is no level in between those two, but it could be that your student is not grasping certain concepts, which would explain why Gamma would be difficult. Or math u see is not for them. I, in this case, would do 1 of 2 things or both. Every child has a learning style. For 2 of my children, math u see is hard for them to grasp, so I use DEVELOPMENTAL MATH. When they aren't grasping concepts, I don't move onto a new concept until they grasp the one they are learning. So, I would review, review, review, and teach another way, and/or Developmental Math.

Last year was my rookie year to homeschool. I originally had gone with Abeka because my mom had used it with me, thus...I knew how it worked. Halfway into the year, however, my 6 year old daughter started struggling. Abeka was having her do the same level work as my 7 year old! To say the least, I both my daughter and I were stressed out and frustrated with just the thought of having to do math. Something had to give. Enter MATH-U-See. With Math - U - See, not only are concepts clearly taught and presented, but my daughter, as well as my son, who I switched over as well from Abeka, can now work independently....allowing me to just oversee. Math - U - See saved our love for math, and has given us tangible kinesthetic manipulatives to work out the problem...along with helping us to write our numbers.

I seriously wish I had gone with my sister’s recommendation as I was choosing my first year curriculum, and gone with Math - U - See from the beginning. Rookie MISTAKE.
