    Math with silver dollars! I love it! I'll see about getting a review copy of this math program. They were really good about sending me review copies of their other curriculum back in the day.

      ... but it isn't Galore Park. It's produced by the Center for Innovation in Mathematics Teaching, funded and produced by a charitable organization (the same folks -- Gatsby Charitable Foundation -- who fund scientists doing theoretical/computational work at University College in London -- I love that the same group produces elementary math books AND supports really high-level, fancy maths). That said, there are physical books and they might happily send you review copies. They are nice people.

        Oh, I totally misunderstood. I thought the publisher was Galore Park. Sorry about that. Glad I hadn't reached out yet.

          Easy mistake! You, or whoever might want to look at the stuff, can just download it for free at the site I linked. There are a few different PDFs for each level (student book, answer book, lesson plans, and overhead/copymasters) as well as a PDF of reference material for each year. Takes a few minutes to wrap your head around, but is largely self-explanatory.

            I use Rainbow Resources to ship to us in Australia. It is still very expensive for us to get MP materials. I use the 3-8 week arrival option (the cheapest), and it’s usually here in 10 days or so. My father in law, now retired, but used to travel worldwide, particularly US, went to see a friend and I was going to get him to bring back MP materials or post them from US for me. But he actually couldn’t send it himself any cheaper than Rainbow Resources, and if he went over weight limit it could have been v expensive...so I just got it shipped even then (books are so heavy!). I imagine Rainbow Resources are probably quite economical for UK too.

              Resurrecting my own thread!
              I never said thank you to GensMum for taking the time to respond with the level of detail that was just what I needed to know.
              And SarahAndrew for her thoughts on international shipping.
              Not to be forgotten are the rest of you for your prayers and insights, as well.

              (Dh is hearing some pretty interesting chatter about being sent to Scotland again so I'm thinking about the details again.)
