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.
I have purchased and used Math Mammoth for my 4th to high school tutoring business. I use the summer workbooks year round supplementing students who may need more time in a concept or that wants to move ahead.
I love the depth of the curriculum knowing all material for a grade is covered in them thoroughly. I purchased the PDF version and simply send them to a local printer to get the books I need. Math Mammoth is very helpful if any bugs are found (which I have not found any) or updates to packages.
A great home school or tutoring program for me especially for Summer Brain Drain....it really keeps students at grade level if the student diligently works the grade finished in the spring all summer.

Very advanced covering all Common Core material with great worksheets for all grades.
Workbooks do not have detailed explanations within them. You need their curriculum books to complement the summer workbooks.
I've searched for years to find a math curriculum here in the UK that would help me teach math in a logical structured way. Most resources are designed for schools who follow rigid time scales and seem to be haphazard in their structure with one subject taught one day and another the next without building on knowledge. Math Mammoth has so far proved to be the exact opposite, starting with a foundation of knowledge then building on it. My 10 year old struggled with times tables but in a few weeks completing the light blue multiplication books now knows them by heart. My youngest has also taken to math in a big way since we started using this and has moved up early to 2nd grade. I love that an international version is available so currency and measurement are in pound sterling and metric.
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!
We use Math Mammoth along with Life With Fred. It's a perfect combination. The price can't be beat, but I would pay more for it if needed. It's no nonsense (yea! No silly distracting pictures!). They do a great job of explaining not only how to work the problem, but why you do it that way . Layout is simple and clear. We love Mammoth!
Love Math Mammoth! Have been using it for the past four school years and will continue to use it until my son completes the program. Maria has made a very user friendly math program that is very open and go. I love that it's pdf so I can reprint pages if I need to and it's usable with multiple children. It's a no nonsense program that has worked very well for my son to teach him basic math concepts in a clear manner that is easy for both parent and student to understand.
We decided to remove our children from public school in 5th and 2nd grades. My daughter, the fifth grader, had always had near perfect math scores her entire school life. However, after a few weeks of doing math at home, I realized that her math capabilities were under what was always reported on her report card.
Math Mammoth has been an incredible tool for her as she now really "gets" math. Her foundational skills have improved so much and she looks forward to tackling new math challenges. She takes great pride in her work and now has a solid math base that will continue to grow and flourish as she ages.
As for our 2nd grader, he too enjoys Math Mammoth and I am thankful to have found it for his math education.
