Product Description:

Student worktext only. Tests are not included at this level.

Publisher Description:

The Primer Student Workbook contains lesson-by-lesson worksheets, systematic review pages, and Application and Enrichment pages. In the Primer level your child will learn not only how to write numerals but also addition and subtraction, basic counting, skip counting, geometric shapes, telling time, and they will be introduced to the manipulative block system. It's an introduction to "doing math" the Math-U-See way.

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

love math u see
This is a great program that introduces complex concepts such as multiplication and algebra to preK students in a gentle and easy to understand way. I use this with both of my children and they love using the manipulatives with the workbook. Also, there aren't a lot of problems on one page so my children aren't overwhelmed!
Thanks!
