## Math U See or Teaching Textbooks for Geometry?

## Math U See or Teaching Textbooks for Geometry?By: cHarp Jun 15, 2010 01:14:PM
My son, age 15, just finished MUS Algebra I. He is not very strong in math, but has done really well with all of the MUS levels--up until Algebra I. The format was a bit different and Algebra just did not come very easily for him. |

This is just my opinion, which is geared to 'fitting' my own dc...not someone else's dc. So, you are free to take it with a grain of salt if you wish. |

We struggled for 8 weeks with MUS Algebra 1 before switching to Teaching Textbooks. We have use Algebra 1, 2 and Geometry. The Geometry is proof-heavy, and it was not an easy course (I don't ever want to hear TT is easy again!). However, we did complete is successfully (Well, honestly, we have 9 lessons left.). I have not used MUS Geometry. |

After many years with MUS we tried TT for geometry and a few other levels. My DS made it through about a month of TT geometry before we switched back to MUS. The first many lessons of TT geometry are about logic word problems. I understand that learning geometry teaches logical thinking, but spending so many lessons on this before getting to the more interesting (IMHO) geometry based logic seemed boring and wasteful. On the otherhand, I have had two children complete MUS geometry with a solid understanding. |

Thanks for the insight into both programs. I appreciate it! |
