Ok so here is our situation. I have a 6th grader that is a smart kid, very right brained and a big time struggler with math. It was actually part of the reason we took our kids out of school. We have homeschooled 2 years and both years used Math U See. She hasn’t thrived with this curriculum but it hasn’t been a dud either. Just somewhere in the middle. We finally hit a wall with fractions this year (she is already a grade level behind) and I finally bought a right brained multiplication and fractions workbook and we have been doing that instead. We aren’t done yet but seems to be making progress. Here is my issue. She is SUPER self conscious about math and that she “isn’t good at it”. She is constantly down on herself and thinks she isn’t smart which just makes it all that much harder. She has no faith in herself. My younger two are very Math inclined and are thriving with Math U See. They are in 1st and 4th. My 4th grader is rapidly closing in on my 6th grader in math and that is just killing her self esteem even more. So I am considering switching her curriculum. Maybe I can find one that clicks for her a little better (although I know Math will never come easy for her) and she won’t be on the same path as them so there will be less pressure to stay ahead of her sister. Of all the other math curriculum I have looked at so far TT looks like the next best fit for her. Thoughts?
I have also read TT is about a grade level behind, kind of the equivalent of vanity sizing But honestly that would be great for her so she doesn’t “feel” so behind. She could be in a farther book with TT than other curriculum.
