Please share your experiences with Math-U-See. I'm especially looking at Algebra 2 and Pre-Calculus. So many choices.... |

We tried MUS for highschool this past fall, having never used it before. We had done CLE up until grade 8 with very good results. We did Saxon Algebra 1 for a bit, and while my son did well, I didn't like how long the lessons were and figured we should try something else. MUS was a total bust. It's so different from other math programs, so we couldn't stand it. My son could not understand Demme's approach at all, and we would often watch Youtube videos after each lesson to find a different way to explain it. We just ended up ditching it, and are having great success with CLE Algebra 1. |

We are very familiar with CLE math. We used it 100-500. |

We are using Algebra 1.......its is a great program for us.....son is working SLOWLY thru it...Steve's explanations are spot on for us...and if he doesn't get it...we watch it again and it goes better from seeing it again. We are long time MUS users...that could be the difference but it also could be that your not mastered in the Pre algebra review that is in the beginning. Be sure to check that out before you jump ship....and mastery is the clue in this program...do not go on till they get it or they will get lost very quickly. There are extra practice on the website also and also take a look at something called MATH AIDS...its online and free to print worksheets from. |

MUS is working really well for my son. He's in Algebra 2 right now. It's mastery, but there is also a lot of review in each lesson, and that has been perfect for him. If he wasn't constantly practicing all the concepts learned, he would just forget it all right away. We both like and understand Mr. Demme's teaching. I watch every lesson because I don't remember any of this stuff. |

I was just looking at the Algebra 2 sample to see story problems for application and they were geometry related. We plan on taking geometry after algebra 2, so this might not work for us since I noticed their sequence seems to be Algebra 1, geometry, then algebra 2. Thanks for the input. I like the looks of MUS, but we've already started algebra 2 and need to finish up with more practice before moving on to geometry. |

One of my older boys used MUS for Algebra 1, Geometry, & Algebra 2 with great success after struggling with other programs. My current high schooler is doing well with MUS Algebra 1 as well. |
