Last year, we used Math Mammoth’s Light Blue series for second grade. You can read our review for that curriculum here: https://www.luvnlambertlife.com/2011/11/tos-review-math-mammoth.html. This year, I chose to review Math Mammoth’s Light Blue series for first grade.
I chose the Light Blue series because it’s a complete curriculum. This allowed my daughter to completely relearn the concepts she struggles with instead of just working on reviewing facts that she didn’t completely understand the first time. We basically started all over with Math, only this time the lessons were much easier for her to comprehend. And though we’ve only been using the program a short time, she is definitely catching on fast.
Math Mammoth’s Light Blue Series for Grade 1 covers addition and subtraction concepts and strategies, whole number and place value relationships to 100, measurement of length, geometric basics, time and money. Even though we are using this curriculum for a math review purpose, we have started from the beginning and worked through. The program is not boring or overwhelming to my students, and as I’ve mentioned more than once, it’s extremely easy to use and comprehend.
Math Mammoth Light Blue series is available online for $34 for the full set of Grade 1 as a download or on CD for $39 plus shipping. It is also purchasable as individual sectional downloads through the website.
Math Rider allows for more than one child to use the system learning needed facts. This worked well for us since we have three children learning at different levels currently. My oldest daughter truly enjoys this program while she’s working on her math facts simply because there is a horse involved. She is my animal lover. My son loves the simplicity and ease of the program. Because of it’s easy to use programming, I plan to start my 5 year old on it very soon.
