My daughter, 1st grade, was struggling with math so we switched to Math Mammoth to give it a try. She is a visual learner and this has been perfect for her. We also love doing the various activities together that are suggested at the beginning of each chapter.

I love that you can use this as a math curriculum or as a supplement. I have used it for extra practice for my students when they needed a refresher or extra help learning a concept.

I have used Math Mammoth at various times with all three of my children. Each one learns differently from the next (ADHD, dyslexia, math hater) but all three found Math Mammoth easy to use, not too much in the way of problem solving, and very clear on the explanations.

I like it because, besides the reasons given above, it fits our small budget beautifully and I can purchase and download only what I need - instantly. We have used the Light Blue series the most, but when a child needed extra help with a topic it was so simple to buy just the topic they were stuck on and give them that extra help!

Maria's newsletter is always interesting and helpful, too. I would suggest signing up even if you're finishing out your year with a different curriculum so you can see just how talented this lady is at making math understandable.

I have used this curriculum for two years to teach both of my kids. I find it to be a very comprehensive program that explains the why's behind the math. I can't believe that such a good math curriculum can be so affordable. I'm thrilled with Mammoth Math and will stick with it.

Can not speak highly enough of Math Mammoth. This curriculum is super affordable. My son is so into math and he thoroughly enjoys MM. We like the way topics are covered and the layout of the book. The digital format is not my favorite but I got it for cheap during a sale so I really can't complain, but once we finish off the next level we will buy the bound workbook instead, variety is nice and atleast it has it so it can appeal to multiple types of people. The pages aren't cluttered with alot of pictures which may bug some people but my son gets so distracted when there is a lot of unneeded things on a page so it helps us alot. Sometimes if there are a lot of problems I make him do enough to show mastery and then move on so he doesn't get fatigued but otherwise it's perfect. SO glad I found MM, I wasted so much time and money on the wrong curriculum!

This was recommended to me and I recommend it as well. I bought the blue series so we could do it any order and work more on areas they like or are having trouble. So far it has covered the topics well and gives plenty of practice. My one daughter prefers bound workbooks though and I bought the digital format. The pages are not as colorful and don't have as many pictures as some books, which might help keep some kids interested.

I love Math Mammoth!! It completely covers every topic, sometimes with a bit too much repetition for my son. We sometimes had to stop short and move on. Very affordable! I have pdfs and print as we go.

I love that Math Mammoth is so affordable and explains math concepts well. I have used it as supplemental practice for my daughter and hesitate to use it as our sole curriculum because it is mastery based rather than spiral based. It has worked very well for us as a supplement.

Maria Miller's Math Mammoth is an affordable curriculum that suits our family. She has a solid direct way of approaching numeracy/math literacy with lots of resources on her website and in her newsletter to assist the parent-teacher. These same ideas for incorporating hands-on math skills are incorporated in each unit of her worktexts. In our family we are emphasizing mental math, so the colorful graphics that my learner seemed to miss from public school kindergarten math are not a big deal right now.
