Negative numbers, order of operations, solving for the unknown, and other topics.
Math-U-See has made math possible in our home. Mr. Demme is engaging and this approach has allowed me to learn math in a way that I understand it better now.
This was an excellent curriculum for my 6th grader to use. I would recommend it for younger pre-algebra students. However, we used a different Algebra I book as a supplement to define some of the mathematical terms used in this curriculum. Sometimes, just a little more information was required than what was in the book.
We liked MUS pre algebra. Loved that it was set up like a classroom and how demme talked to the other kids. Loved the visual of plenty of white space on the board and clear instructions.
We love Math-U-See. It has helped my kids to learn math and succeed. The video is very helpful and we really liked using the blocks when we were doing the elementary levels.
Great program overall and Preagebra has well prepared my kids for algebra. Not the most engaging material, but there are no extras so my kids never felt like there was busy work. They knew what was expected each lesson and appreciated that no time was wasted on extra information.
