Rated 4 out of 5 by cellogirl Good visuals; needs more review
This book gives good visual aids to help the students "see" what they are doing. It explains each math concept and supports the explanation with a clear illustration. I often find that I would like more review at the end of each worksheet from the previous day. Usually a new concept is introduced, often building on the previous lesson, but there isn't review of the previous day until several lessons later.

The curriculum is clearly written and is simple to implement. However, its simplicity is also its downfall. It has very few tools to actually help a teacher differentiate his/her instruction in order to meet the needs of all the students. A teacher would have to pull in a good number of outside resources in order to create a more complete curriculum. Also, in particular, the 4th grade curriculum has faulty math as it teaches that books, rugs, paper, etc. are 2D objects.

Rated 5 out of 5 by blessings my son loves this
I was a public school teacher before starting to homeschool and the way I like to teach is with hands on materials and visual aids. I think this program does a great job at meeting these requirements. There are lots of opportunities to review or to challenge your student. I also enjoy the bible lessons that they incorporate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by blessings My son enjoys it!
I was a public school teacher before homeschooling my kids. The way I like to teach is to have hands on materials and visuals to go along with the lessons. I find this material to meet these requirements. I also enjoy the stories and related bible verses and lessons that go with some of the lessons. I will be ordering from BJU for my 7th grader next year.

Rated 4 out of 5 by krissie easy to teach for one or many students
I found it easy to use. I have had a variety of learners understand the instructions and complete the material.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Momof2girls Hands on learning
These are punch out type manipulatively, in color, and are good for hands on learner a. They go along with the lessons, but are especially important for the distance learning program. If I wasn't using distance learning, I'm not sure I would understand how to use the manipulatives correctly even with the teacher manual. They could use a little better labeling on exactly what each item is and how it should be utilized.
