I was very excited to have the opportunity to review Math-U-See with the Schoolhouse Review Crew the past few weeks. I’ve been wanting to put my hands on this material and check it out, so this was the perfect opportunity. We packed away my daughter’s current curriculum so we could focus completely on Demme Learning’s Math-U-See Pre-Algebra Digital Packs. We were so glad we did.
Math-U-See is now offering an enhanced version of their Instruction Packs online! With the Digital Packs, you can purchase a 12 month subscription to access to streaming instruction videos and Instruction Manual PDFs, accessible through any internet browser, plus an online version of the Digital Manipulatives. Math-U-See is perfect for on the go learning.
Other free online and downloadable resources are included with each level, as appropriate. It’s important to note that the Digital Packs do not include workbooks.
Math-U-See Pre-Algebra covers the following concepts:
- Negative Numbers: Addition
- Negative Numbers: Subtraction
- Negative Numbers: Multiplication
- Negative Numbers: Division
- Whole Numbers
- Number Line
- Place Value
- Expanded and Exponential Notation
The Digital Pack features 30 lessons and an introductory lesson where the teacher fully explains the concepts and provides sample problems.
Pre-Algebra Digital Pack includes:
- 12-month access to Pre-Algebra streaming instruction videos
- Instruction Manual PDF
- Lesson solutions
- Skip Count Songs MP3s and Songbook PDFs
- 12-month access to digital manipulatives, using Chrome or Safari browsers
With the Digital Pack and the Math-U-See Manipulatives, she finally understood the why! This program is wonderful for more visual or tactile learners like my daughter.
I asked my daughter what she thought about this Pre-Algebra program and his response floored me. “It’s easy, Mom”. It’s Easy. For a child who struggled with math and “hated” math. It’s Easy. Things are clicking and I couldn’t be more happy!
We have actually officially switched her over now to Math-U-See and I’m exploring it for our other children as well. Who knew math could be understood so easily using blocks and manipulatives! It’s a winner in my book, for sure!
