Category Description for Math-U-See:

We are excited to offer this "tried and true" homeschool favorite math program! It sets itself apart from other math curricula with its focus on creating effective problem solvers who understand the underlying concepts in math and can apply math to real life situations. Honestly, as an adult, how many of us wish we had learned math in this manner?

Utilizing a Four-Step Approach, Math U See provides a K-12 mastery-based math program.

- Step 1 - Prepare for the Lesson
- Step 2 - Present & Explore the New Concept Together (incorporating
*Build - Write - Say*interactive teaching methodology) - Step 3 - Student Practices for Mastery
- Step 4 - Student Progresses After Mastery

Truly multisensory, each level offers DVD instruction for the parent/teacher and student, manipulatives (through the Algebra level), and worksheets for practice. Mastery of math concepts is evidenced by the student's ability to teach the parent the concept by the end of the lesson. The authors have chosen to use letters of the Greek alphabet (Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta, Epsilon, and Zeta) to identify the sequence of concepts taught at the elementary level rather than a grade level designation. The *Primer* level is designed to provide an introductory broad overview and to encourage the love of math. Upper levels are titled more traditionally (Pre-Algebra, Algebra, etc.) Because Math-U-See (MUS) is mastery-based, students may enter the program at any level depending on their concept proficiency.
