    I am not homeschooling my kids, but would like to find a program that I can supplement my daughter with for math. Can you tell me which programs you use? Thanks.

    We used Math-U-See (or however they spelled it, maybe they used the word "you" I can't remember) whenever I was in school. It has videos, building blocks and books.

    Math-u-see is the most common it seems in my homeschool groups. I have right start math, but I don't really use the books, just the tools that came with it.

    I'm using Teaching Textbooks for math with my son and I LOVE IT! Seriously, it is the best homeschooling math program EVER! You can click on the grade level you're interested in (they're coming out with 3rd grade next month, which I'll get for my daughter [​IMG] ) and try a demo. [​IMG]

    We've used Time4Learning in the past too. It's a good supplement and is reasonably priced.

    Works really well as a side dish to whatever method you use.

    We use Saxon Math. I used to use Math U See and if your kid is in Public school you will not want to use this. It's a great program but they go through addition one year then subtraction one year and so on. One of the complaints about this program has been the testing skills for early elementary. By the time they hit the older ages they are caught up but if you are wanting to supplement you have to decide what exactly what are your goals. Is it for paralleling your school program or is it math fact practice?
