Math U See is very thorough, easy to understand, with lots of practice sheets and review. Each concept builds on the other. You master one level prior to starting a new level which allows for the child and parent to see math and not just memorize it. Both of my children learn differently yet Math U See teaches to all four methods of learning enabling you to use it for each child. The DVDs are wonderful to watch with your child and sometimes they may not even need your help. If you run into a subject that is difficult their support personnel is extremely helpful. My father that was a professor of math looked at several different curriculum in order to help me select the best one for our family and Math U See was his first choice. It has truly been a blessing.

We've used MUS since the beginning with Primer. We're now on Gamma. My son likes the DVDs, the blocks and the overall approach. We watch the DVD together on Monday and do one page of work each day M-F. The lessons are clear and concise and in an order that makes sense to this past PS teacher/current HS mom AND to my 7-year-old son. Occasionally, Steve {the author} will go off topic a bit in the DVD lesson and talk about a way to use the particular skill in a more advanced way...and that can be a bit confusing. But, I just tell my son to delete that part of the lesson from his brain. ;) Another con {but it's really just a caution} is that, though it's designed to complete in one school year, you {the teacher} must hold yourself and your students accountable. If he/she is not ready to move on bc she has not mastered that particular skill that week, DON'T move on. Steve is assuming you have mastered it and that skill might not receive any more attention in the following weeks.

Sometimes Steve goes off-topic a bit on DVDs and that's confusing. Cost may be prohibitive for some.
