You're Going to Love This Mastery-Based, Student-Paced Curriculum!
If you are looking for a curriculum that ensures your children will be able to fully understand each mathematical concept before moving on to another one, you have found it. For more than 20 years Math-U-See’s renowned mastery-based, student-paced program has been the answer for countless families. If you regularly experience tears from your child whenever new mathematical topics are introduced, you need Math-U-See’s systematic, precept-upon-precept math program.

The Tools and Format You Need to Master Math
With simple, uncluttered pages, Math-U-See is mastery-oriented, clear, to the point, and effective. In Math-U-See, new ideas are introduced step by step in a logical order, while concepts that have been mastered are reviewed periodically.

About the Books
Math-U-See books are organized into levels, not grades, so students can proceed at their own pace as they master concepts. This is particularly helpful for the child that is not performing at grade level but would rather not have a daily reminder. Student workbooks and test booklets are softcover, and the pages are perforated and punched so they can be removed, completed, and placed in binders if you choose. Occasional fun exercises, like dot-to-dots and crossword puzzles have been incorporated into the student workbooks. Test booklets for each course have tests to be used at the end of each lesson, plus four unit tests and a final exam. Student workbook pages and tests are consumable, so each child will need their own copy. Instruction manuals, however, are hardcover books and should last the life of your teaching career. Complete answer keys with solutions are included for all problems at all levels, more a necessity at the upper levels than the lower ones.

Teacher Guide and Supplemental DVD
Math-U-See’s teacher guide and supplemental DVD will teach you more than just how to solve a math problem, they will also show why the problem is solved in this manner, and when to apply the concept. On the DVDs, each lesson is demonstrated with such kind-hearted enthusiasm, I now understand why children line up at homeschool conferences to give the instructor, Steve Demme, a hug. DVDs can be played on a DVD player or computer; however, Windows 10 users will need to download a separate video player.

For the Parents
While Math-U-See still requires a fair amount of parental involvement, in all the high-school-level books, your child will be able to work more independently. The instruction manual can be read directly by the student and he can watch the DVD presentation himself before beginning each lesson. The instruction manuals also include complete answers with step-by-step solutions for all the exercises and tests and there is extra instruction for the enrichment problems.

Digital Pack Included!
Every Math-U-See Algebra 2 set purchased from us will also include the new Digital Pack. Accessible through any internet browser, you will have lifetime access to Algebra 2 streaming instruction videos and Instruction Manual PDFs, and lesson and test solutions.

Feel Good About Knowing Your Child Is Really Getting It
Math-U-See is laid out with step-by-step procedures for introducing, practicing, mastering, and reviewing concepts. How do you know when your child has "mastered" a math concept? Not just when he gets the answers right but when he can teach the concept back to you, especially if he is able to do so with a word problem. Math-U-See will show you how. So, if you want to give your child an exceptionally solid mathematical foundation; if your child is shaky on the basics; or if you are just looking a no-frills, common sense program; you are sure to be pleased with Math-U-See.

    How Do I Choose Which Curriculum Set I Need?
    Algebra 2 Universal Set
    The Math-U-See Algebra 2 Universal Set includes everything a new customer needs to be successful with Math-U-See Algebra 2. The Instruction Pack, Student Pack, and the Algebra 2 Digital Pack are conveniently bundled so customers can be certain they have all of the items they need.

    Algebra 2 Student Pack
    This is the right choice for families who have more than one student in the Algebra 2 level and who need a second workbook, or for families who have previously used Algebra 2 for one student and already own the Instruction Pack. The Student Pack includes solely the student workbook and the test booklet; the Digital Pack is not included.

    You must have the Instruction Pack to utilize Math-U-See effectively. If you do not already own the Instruction Pack, you should purchase the Universal Set not the Student Pack.

    No other math program will do.

    We have used Math-U-See to teach our 9 kids (age 8-30) for over 20 years. After tinkering with all the popular and “best” math programs we were introduced to this and nothing is simpler or better for my gifted and my special needs children. I have known people who didn’t like it because it taught so different from public school texts and they were worried their kids wouldn’t be able to manage in traditional classrooms. However, all my college kids (one a math major and one a physics major) not only “managed” but tested out of mandatory entry level classes and were approved to skip other “non negotiable” mandatory math classes when they entered college to start at calculus level classes their first year. I love the ease of preparation, the simplicity of the pages (not over stimulating for special needs) and the fact that everything is taught with reason and purpose.

    We like this curriculum but my son still struggles some. Yet we still like it.

    We love Math You See

    We have been using math you see for years. We love the mastery approach and the ease of watching the dvd lessons and following along in the book. Great layout and we can move on once a concept is mastered instead of doing extra busy work.

    Love this Math

    As a teacher, I have taught many different math curriculums. This is by far the best I have seen. Even my kids love doing math now.

    The Best

    Steve Demme is a pro at taking complicated subjects and simplifying them. Algebra 2 can be a chore to get through but he makes it bearable.
