 How Does Math·U·See Work in a Coop Setting?
 In 1989-1990 I was a one-man traveling tutor. My weekly circuit took me to four different groups of home educators where I taught math, science, physical education or any combination of these three subjects. It was at one such group that Math·U·See was born. I have since taught at other coops through the years. I recognize that no two coops are alike just as no two homes are alike. But there are similarities and I will try to address some issues that need to be considered when using Math·U·See for older and younger students.

 Upper Level Students

 Elementary Level
 Younger children are a different situation. I believe the best place for them to learn math is next to a parent who can move at their appropriate pace. This is the beauty of home education. Parents are able to teach their child according to their unique learning style and take the time necessary to thoroughly master a topic. Since math needs to be taught sequentially and each topic needs to be mastered before moving to a succeeding skill level, only someone who is working closely with the student can determine when to move to the next concept. I may understand math and have a few interesting jokes, but no one knows a student better than a parent. No one can replace Mom and Dad. The videos were created to present the math topic in each lesson, and the manipulatives were designed to provide a tool for a parent/tutor to illustrate the new concept. I would be very reticent about putting a child that is studying Primer through Zeta in a coop setting.

 Some Additional Tips for a Coop
 Expense To offset the cost of the materials, you might consider including the cost of the blocks (or a portion of the cost) in each child's "book fee" or "materials fee," if you have one. This suggestion came to us from an administrator of a coop. Teacher Blocks The magnetic blocks (as seen on the demo videos) are available as a special order. The cost is \$90.00 per set and one set contains the equivalent of half of a Starter Set of blocks. However if you are going to teach in small groups (which we highly recommend), then the table blocks should suffice. More Worksheets If you need extra pages for practice, there is a worksheet generator on our web site for that purpose. We also have an on-line drill program on the web site, too. Both of these services are free. On Site Training Some reps may travel to your school or coop for an onsite inservice. Contact your local rep for their fee and availability.

 TESTIMONIALS
I'm a chemist and a mother of 3. My kids are 10, 8, and 5. I was just watching your DVD for Epsilon and had to stop and write you. (I got goose-bumps and was so happy with the program.) My college major was Chemistry/Physics/Math Education. I chose to work as a chemist until I had kids, but teaching is in my heart. Besides my own kids, I do get to teach chemistry part-time at George Fox University in Newberg, Oregon. I'm continually aware of those students who don't know the math concepts like they should. I found your program through another homeschool mom when my 10 year old was pre-school age and immediately fell in love with it. I so very much appreciate your approach to math. What an amazing start these kids are getting by learning to think and understand, not just memorize formulas! My kids understand math far beyond their peers...and you should see the structures they can make with the math blocks. My 5 year old has known how to make 10s for a couple of years now. My 8 year old learned her multiplication largely from making rectangles with her little brother. My 10 year old is starting fractions. She loves the overlays and seeing the patterns. Math is a joy for me to teach and for them to learn. Thank you!! These new DVD's and books are awesome. I like the re-organization of them. I used the others up until this year. I like the student texts with the word problems included and the teacher's books are even better than ever. It might sound silly, but I can't wait to see how you teach the higher math skills. I want to buy them all just out of curiosity. Smile. Thank you so much for sharing your mind with us....your math mind as well as your Christian mind. Thanks for taking a stand and being an example worth following. I speak highly of you as a person and as a teacher whenever I get the opportunity.
