Do not fall into the math trap. Homeschool math curriculum should not be purchased based on your child's age or grade level. It should be personalized to your child's individual math skills. Learning math is a process and it should be taken step by step. Rushing children into a new math level simply because they have had a birthday or because they are in a new grade is wrong. Children that are rushed to higher levels of math before they are ready will fall behind. Math levels should be mastered before a child is moved up to the next level.
