This curriculum is fine if you like scripted lessons. This will certainly teach your child math. The Saxon Math Kit you can buy and it comes with things designed to be used from K to 3rd grade. I'm glad I bought the math kit but not the book.(Though in hind sight I could have easily acquired all the kit items online) I hated how it repeated everything, only covering a subject minimally before moving to the next. The way it cycled through the subjects my son found somewhat confusing. But, some people love this curriculum and love the cycling approach.
