Hi everyone! I am a ways off from high school with my two daughters, but I find myself being kept up at night with math curriculum **sigh** My 6th grader LOVES Math Mammoth, is very math oriented, artistic, and conceptual. She can remember past concepts taught, so mastery programs make her a little bored. We will finish with the last book in the series - Book 7 Pre-Algebra - about halfway through 8th grade. Then what? Should we begin Algebra 1? How do you like MP's choice for Algebra? It is hard for me to find a lot of reviews on it, so I would love your help!

My 4th grader does Math Mammoth as well, but forgets a lot between chapters. I am looking at CLE or Rod and Staff for her. I ordered both and we will look at it together. She is good at math once she understands it, but getting there and retaining it is half our battle. With that being said, I wonder if she would do better finishing CLE through 800 or Rod and Staff through book 8 before moving on to Algebra. She does have a very out of the box way of understanding and memorizing things, but math just isn't sticking.

Thank you for entertaining this worry warts concerns! I appreciate all you advice!
