Now I See! Math-U-See makes math understandable!
(Round Lake Beach, IL)
Product: Math-U-See, Blocks and Skip Counting CD
Levels Used: Alpha (1st/2nd grade)
Dates Used: 2007-current (my son needed to slow down and we were lazy about our schedule; the beauty is that we can pick right up where we left off with some review)
Likes: Comes with a DVD to teach the topic, taught by its creator Steven Demme at a level that anyone can understand. The lesson can be watched over and over again if needed. The hands-on manipulatives (blocks) are wonderful-- color coded, different lengths to represent different numbers. The Skip Counting CD is easy to learn from and the facts are spoken after the song to aid memory apart from the song.
Dislikes: Sometimes students (both of mine) have a hard time making the jump from blocks to the numbers (though I think it is a process). The songs on the CD are a little annoying, but they are effective so I can't complain!
