Goodies: Math-U-See Gamma

[Update: Congratulations to Jackie (#69) who won the Math-U-See! Jackie, please contact me with your mailing address by Monday, March 7, so I can mail your goodies.]

Looking for a curriculum your kids will like?
An online homeschool curriculum can open new doors by creating an interactive learning experience that brings concepts to life.
online curriculum
Homeschooling should be fun.
With Time4Learning, it can be!

Today’s goodie up for grabs is Math-U-See Gamma. I have available the DVD, the Teacher Manual, and the unused Test Booklet. It does not include the Student Workbook or the blocks. The materials are in very good shape but they do have Kelley written inside the cover. We really enjoyed this program when used with the blocks; by building the problems instead of just writing numbers, the students are able to understand the concept rather than just memorize the procedure. The Gamma level covers single and double digit multiplication along with other topics. Math-U-See has placement tests available to help you determine the most appropriate level for your child.

From the publisher:

Math·U·See is broken down to teach students specific skills that build as the student progresses. This systematic and cumulative approach uses a definite, logical sequence of concept instruction. The Math·U·See system is structured with step-by-step procedures for introducing, reviewing, and practicing concepts.

  1. Math skills are taught explicitly
  2. There is a definite, logical sequence of concept instruction that is systematic and cumulative
  3. A structured, step-by-step procedure for introducing, reviewing, and practicing concepts
  4. Multi-sensory tools to engage the visual, auditory, and kinesthetic channels simultaneously in rapid succession
  5. Continuous, ongoing assessment and progress monitoring allow for frequent opportunities to re-teach

To see what other homeschoolers have to say about the program, visit the page for Math-U-See reviews by homeschoolers. To read more from the publisher, visit Math-U-See’s website.

Reminders: The items in Goodies Up For Grabs may be gently used or like new. While the item itself should be in good condition (I’m not guaranteeing it because I won’t be watching every video or listening to every CD), the covers may not be in great shape. As of this writing, items are all from my personal shelves but that may change if friends offer to contribute to the stash. I may not have actually used the item. (You don’t ever do that, do you? Buy curriculum and not use it? I didn’t think so.) Some of the resources may be older versions – I have several great videos but they are on VHS tapes – so be sure to pay attention to whether the format of a resource will work for you.

The rules are simple – for each item, just post in the comments section of the blog post what you like about that particular item. Please only post once for each item. If you don’t intend to respond with your address if you are the winner, out of fairness to the other homeschoolers who would love to have the item, please do not enter! The choice will be random, so it will not increase your chances of winning to tell how your husband just left you and your house burned down and you lost your job so you really *need* the item. Keep it simple, and happy homeschooling!

  1. I would love this item as I was fortunate enough to pick up the manipulatives at a used curriculum fair but do not have the books to support the use of them. My youngest son struggles with multiplication so much this would be a great asset

  2. This would help me with homeschooling my children 🙂

    Lorie

  3. amber

    New to homeschooling. A friend told me about this curriculum. Interested to see how it works

  4. This would be a wonderful addition to my homeschooling resources! I love trying new things.

  5. Saw this at a homeschool fair once. I like the block concept. I think my kiddos would like it.

  6. Michelle Layos

    We love MUS! My daughter will be in 2nd grade next year & ready to use this level. Thanks for the chance to win 🙂

  7. Suzanne Nelson

    I am just starting out with homeschooling and my 9 year old would benefit by this greatly. Thanks you.

  8. I would love these for my son, we could really use them!

    Thank you for doing these giveaways, so generous of you!

  9. monica

    i would love this as i have been looking for a math curriculum for my daughter and keep coming back to math u see. i have the manipulatives, but not the books.

  10. Lisa

    Several of my homeschooling cousins use this and love it. We would love to use it ourselves!

    All best!
    Lisa

  11. We’ve been using MUS for a year now and my DD loves it. Math is her favorite subject.

  12. Jenny Mosley

    I love how it comes with the placement test since I am new to homeschooling. Also, my daughter could really learn from the DVD since she is more of a visual learner being autistic.

  13. catherine

    We would really like to have this!

  14. Connie

    I would love to have math-u-see! I’ve heard it is an amazing program and I’d love to see for myself!

  15. Marylou

    We have used this program for a couple of years and love it. We will be going into this book next. It is an awesome program!

  16. The littles are very hands-on and visual learners. This would be a great asset.

  17. Tricia

    I would love to use Math-U-See with my daughter! A friend of mine suggested I try it as other curriculums haven’t quite clicked with her. She is very much a hands-on learner.

  18. Juli Al-Amin

    I have heard so many good things about this program…I would love to have this!

  19. Would love this! My kids are only on Alpha right now but I am so psyched about MUS already and this would be wonderful to save on future purchases, since MUS costs an arm and a leg new 🙂

  20. Bernice

    This is the next book for us so would love a chance to win it.

  21. Kimberly Adler

    Anything that can make teaching math more interesting!

  22. Lori

    We love Math-U-See!! 22, come on, 22!! 🙂 🙂 🙂

    • Lori

      We started with Primer, and are in Beta now. Math-U-See is a fantastic way for kids to touch and feel their math. It’s not just a concept anymore!!!

  23. Linda S

    I have many friends who LOVE Math-U-See! Seems like a fantastic program!

  24. Nancy R

    I hadn’t heard of Math U See until the past year. I am excited about a program that helps children learn Math in a different way. I have never heard anything bad about Math U See and would love to try it out!

  25. Lori

    I love MUS! When I pulled our ds out of public school, he was very lost when it came to math. The schools did a spiral curriculum that didn’t work for ds. He couldn’t understand the connections between all the things he was learning. so we stared MUS and now he gets it!! I love that my son knows what he is learning now will be needed for the next level! Plus, the manipulatives are great! love MUS!

  26. Our current math curriculum is fairly dry. Would love this to give us something new to try.

  27. Melody Lange

    I love how hands on Math-U-See is. My youngest definately needs that when learning math concepts.

  28. I would love to win this because I know a family that wants it, and I would love to bless them.

  29. TJ

    We’ve been using Math U See for 2 years now, and we really like it’s approach. My daughter especially likes using the DVD to have Mr. Demme explain her lesson to her. He does a good job, and it gives her someone else to listen to.

  30. Kelly Schmidt

    We would love to utilize these materials… this is the level my son will be working on starting this summer.

    Thanks for the opportunity 🙂

  31. Kendall

    I have heard wonderful things about this Math Curriculum and would love to get the chance to see if it works with my son.

  32. Mechelle

    Looking at next years plan and these would work great

  33. Nicole

    We just ordered Alpha for my youngest. It’s not here yet but we are very excited. I do mean WE. The Gamma level would be for my oldest. She is not fond of our current math curriculum (I say that in an ever-so-casual manner). Soooo…. we need to come on up out of this one and into Gamma!!!! This is a huge blessing you are offering. Thank you!

  34. We have the blocks and would love to try Math-U-See as all my online buddies swear by it. As usual, I am trying to do things in the most cost effective manner. I like to acquire curriculum to try for free before I invest in it – you never know what a kid might like or not like.
    My 8 year old loves the blocks. So I am thinking of using them with her.

  35. Alicia

    We love Math-U-See and have used it from the beginning! It would be great to get these for free (even if they are gently used). 🙂 Thanks for offering them up!

  36. Jamie

    I use Saxon Math but would love to see and try Math-U-See

  37. Michelle

    Wish other subjects could come in a format like Math-U-See – the helpfulness of watching and then doing the work really seems to work (better than watching MOM do it!!) Very useful product! Any science programs like that?

  38. Sarah

    I would love to use Math-U-see with my sons, they have a very different learning style than my girls.

  39. Della Jones

    I would love to have the opportunity to use this for my girls!

  40. Melissa

    I could really use these! Happy Homeschooling!

  41. Cara

    These would be great for my son!

  42. Darsi

    I would love this! My son has struggled with math and what we have…he does not enjoy. Heard good things about this. Love to try it!

  43. Robyn

    Would love to try Math-U-See! We are just starting multiplication.

  44. Jennifer Rogers

    My son loves Math and is ready to start a new program-we’d love to give this one a try!
    Thanks

  45. Liliek Hsiao

    My daughter loves this math program. This Gamma level is just what we need for our next level. Thank you

  48. Lorie

    How generous of you to do this drawing!

    Thanks!

  50. Becky Elmore

    We really love Math-U-See! All three of my daughters are using it this year and Gamma is the one missing that my middle daughter will need for next year. What a great blessing if we win! Thanks!

  51. Terri Smith

  53. Andrea Jackson

    This would be a great addition to my honeschooling class. Thanks, Andrea

    • Andrea Jackson

  54. Jerri Hagler

    We LOVE Math U See. My son is ready to move into Gamma. 🙂

  55. Stephanie Moore

    We’re just getting done with Beta, this would be wonderful!

  58. Susan

  59. Michelle

  60. Jill W.

    I would like to experience the great things I have heard about Math-U-See!

  61. Susan McCormick

  82. Jenni

    Wow! What a wonderful offer. I am set to begin this level of math-u-see with my oldest three this summer. This would be such a blessing to us as the parents of 6, 5 of which are currently homeschooling age, and plans to adopt two more children this year! 🙂

  84. I’ve heard a lot of good things about this program!

  85. Jaysen McDermith & Samantha Ellis

  86. Maria C. Mitchell

    We love Math-U-See!

  87. Sabrina Reinhart

    We’re currently using Math-U-See and I’m trying to get all the levels we’ll need in the future – this would be great to add to our collection. Thanks for sharing,

  89. Shannnon Porter

    My son will be in 2nd grade and ready to use this next year. I have heard good things about this program.

  90. We would love this! We’ve been thinking about getting this curriculum but aren’t sure if it would be a good fit. Getting this one for my soon to be 4th grader would make Math different this next year and see if it fits for higher grades for her.

  91. Molly

    I would love to win. Been searching for a good math program!

  92. Jessica
