Product Description:

Student Packages include student worktext and test booklet.

Consumable student worktext contains 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. Consumable test booklet is 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.

Publisher Description:

The Geometry Student Pack contains the Student Workbook with lesson-by-lesson worksheets, review pages, and Application and Enrichment pages. It also includes the Geometry Tests. Topics covered in Geometry include points, lines, planes, angles, circles, triangles, quadrilaterals, Pythagorean Theorem, conic sections, proofs, and more. (As we reprint our books in each level of Pre-Algebra through Calculus, we are changing the title of the "Honors" pages to "Application and Enrichment" to mirror our lower-level books. This change in indended to clarify that this content extends lesson concepts but does not include academic "Honors"-level coursework and the designation "Honors" cannot be added to student transcripts even if all pages are completed. The content and solutions are unchanged, but for a short transitional period, books within a level may be inconsistent in the name of these pages.)

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 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


Category Description for Math-U-See Geometry:

In the MUS sequence at the upper level, it is recommended that students take Geometry after Algebra 1 and before Algebra 2. Algebra 1 review has been added to the Geometry course to keep Algebra skills sharp.

Beginning with Geometry, fewer MUS manipulatives are used and students will need a protractor, compass, and straight edge.The Universal Setno longer includes manipulatives, but does provide everything necessary for the course including: Instruction Manual with complete solutions, Instruction DVD, Student Workbook, Test book, and 12 months of access to the respective Digital package.

Emphasis is on vocabulary of geometry, practical applications of geometry, and traditional geometry including proofs. Includes lines, angles, area, perimeter, volume, Pythagorean theorem, axioms, and postulates, congruency, and similarity. Brief introduction to trigonometric functions.

We have used Math U See every year in our 9 years of homeschooling. I like that the lessons are taught on dvd and much better explained than I could ever do, especially with the upper maths.

Made Geometry easy for my daughter. Love Mathusee.
Jessica O on Apr 4, 2019
We've been using Math-U-See for 17 years now. It's easy to use and covers each topic thoroughly without expecting the student to do a ridiculous number of problems. Also, I very much appreciate their teaching through word problems and use of variables very early on in the learning process.
Sue H on Feb 25, 2019
We use Math-U-See for our math curriculum, because it is easy to understand and reinforces math concepts well. Having a daughter diagnosed with Dyscalculia, I have found it to be less overwhelming for her than other curriculum's, and she is more confident in her math skills.

We continue to use Math U See. It has always worked for our family.
Jennifer B on Aug 2, 2018
My kids have used several different curriculum companies for math, but Math U See has been everyone's favorite. And proof that it is a good investment and effective - none of my children have gotten any less than a 94% average in math since switching!
Lisa C on Aug 1, 2018
I have used this curriculum since the beginning. Love it! It is the best for my family.

A good price for the books required for a class my daughter is taking.
Erika G on Jul 23, 2018
Math-u-see has worked well for my students that are not as strong in math. Not everyone will be an engineer, right? But everyone needs a solid enough understanding of math to function well in this world. Enter math-u-see. I'm thankful this curriculum is an option in our homeschool.
Sandra R on Jul 20, 2018
Used for other children and liked the program

2 thumbs up for Math-U-See Geometry
I've used other geometry curriculum before and I'm so glad to have made the switch to Math-U-See. It painlessly takes students through the steps leading up to doing proofs. It's geometry explained logically and simply!
