THIS CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED.
“My oldest has always loved math. For the first few years of his schooling, we used a hands-on math program that was likable, but left some holes in his learning,” Lisa Keva shared with me. I asked if she would be willing to share her family’s Math-U-See journey with LJSkool readers and she said yes. Read her story below and then enter the contest here and then on the main page for a second entry.

It’s possible to catch a glimpse of her on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Google+, or at her blog, Tales of a Homeschool Family starting its’ 12th year. This guest post is part of LJSkool’s Math-U-See Week.[/note]
The Math Problem
At the end of the 4th grade, we discovered these holes were in multi-digit multiplication AND division. Though I had been eyeing up Math-U-See for awhile, we hadn’t taken the plunge to switch. It was obvious that the time to reconsider another math program was at hand! After taking the online placement test, we discovered that my son would need the back section of Gamma and the back half of Delta to fill in his weak spots.
The Math Solution
We prayerfully purchased these 2 levels for my son’s summer school learning. Within a very short amount of time, he caught up and was then ready for the next level before September. Math-U-See helped fill in those blanks, strengthened what he already knew and enabled him to work independently of Mom. He loves Steve Demme’s upbeat teaching style DVD’s and we love it too!
A Great Fit For The Entire Family
Since that time, we’ve added 3 more children to our homeschool. Two of these are already well into using Math-U-See with great success. The multi-learning style aspect of this curriculum can’t be beat as it uniquely fits each child’s style. My visual, auditory and kinestetic kids are consistently scoring above grade level on standardized tests. This year my oldest starts Pre Calculus.
What a journey it has been and we wouldn’t have it any other way!
