Math Mammoth: A Review

Maria Miller, the owner of Math Mammoth named her site well!  If you have a student in grades 1-8 then there is something on this site for you. You might just need some worksheets to help your child master a certain concept or a complete curriculum. It's all here.
If you can not pinpoint exactly what worksheets to get Ms. Miller will promptly answer any questions you might have and give you great recommendations.
I personally received from Math Mammoth, the worktext Math Mammoth Clock. Redd and I had worked a little last year on telling time but I needed something that would help him master time telling.
A worktext contains the teaching and the exercises removing the need for a separate teachers manual.
(I appreciated this!). Since Redd is reading pretty well now he can read most of the instructions for himself.
Anytime you can get a child working independantly it is awesome!
