Going Well
I am really enjoying this program. My daughter hated math last year and she loves this. I asked her on the first day of homeschool what her favorite thing was and she said "the one with the blocks." I said, "you mean math?" She didn't even realize that she was doing math. Her excitement has waned some but it is still going well.

5 year old enjoys Math U See, but no objectives stated
After several recommendations from friends who have homeschooled for years, we decided to start with Math U See Alpha for our 5 year old. She enjoys the visual manipulatives, and grasps new concepts quickly with the methods MUS uses. However, I was disappointed to discover there are no clearly stated objectives in the teaching manuals. As a licensed teacher, I felt this was a HUGE oversight. I had to reread some of the early lessons several times to get to the heart of WHAT exactly I wanted my student to accomplish by the end of the lesson. The instruction manual is basically a lesson narrative, which may be helpful for a nervous beginning teacher, but seasoned teachers will find this frustrating if you are accustomed to building your own lessons around an objective. I'm finding later lessons more straightforward, but the initial acquaintance with MUS ideology was a bit rough for us. Hopefully this will change in the future. A MUS representative replied to my inquiry and explained that objectives and standards were currently being written for MUS programs used in schools. But every homeschool parent is a teacher and should be starting each lesson with a clear learning objective, so I'm baffled to find homeschool material that hasn't provided this crucial information up front.

Saxon wasn't working well for my visual, hands-on learner and the spiral approach was overwhelming her. I've heard great recommendations for Math U See.

We are currently using Horizons K for our son who is autistic. Wanted to try Math U See for its manipulatives and different approach to math.
