When we started homeschooling, the one thing my kids asked was that we not use Saxon Math curriculum. The charter school they had attended used it and it was not their favorite.
Let me say clearly…I know lots of homeschool families that use and LOVE Saxon. It’s just not a good fit for us.
One of the very best things about homeschooling is that you can pick and choose what will work for your family. And if something doesn’t work…you can try something else! We experienced this with our history curriculum early on, as well. I’ll write about how all that worked out sometime soon.
With math, we have used a number of different curriculums (I know “curricula” is the correct plural, but it sounds funny, so I don’t say it).
When I was looking for things to try, I loved reading about other people’s experiences. So today, I thought I’d share ours. Each one of these had pros and cons, things we liked and things we didn’t. You can click on the images to read more about each curriculum.
