Math Mammoth is one of our favorite math programs that we have used in our homeschool. I was introduced to it about three years ago and it was truly a blessing in our homeschool. I continued to use it even last year in 8th grade to fill in blank spots and correct issues that Chandler had with mathematics. I have found it to be wonderful as either a full program or as a supplement to any other math program.

I wrote a review of Math Mammoth in 2009, that you can read here. I also mentioned it as one of our favorite programs in my entry for the Virtual Curriculum Fair earlier this week.

When Maria Miller, the author of this wonderful program, asked me if I would like to give a set away on my blog, I was thrilled! I knew that one of my lucky readers would love to be blessed with this curriculum in their own homeschool. So here is what we are going to be blessing one lucky reader with this next week:

Is the Blue series a complete curriculum?It is complete in its coverage of topics for grades 1-6, or actually up to pre-algebra.

Please keep in mind that several of the books in the Blue Series cover material for several grade levels in one book. It is NOT organized exactly by grade levels.

Do all the workbooks come with answer keys?Yes. All of the Blue Series books have answers appended in the worktext.

Interested? I thought so! The contest will stay open for one week. The winner will be announced on Friday, January 20th. Please follow the directions below to enter.

I like that the series covers some topics that aren’t fully covered in our normal curriculum. I’d use it to fill in the gaps.

Shannon R says

I love that it’s all in segments, so that she was able to put together a Canadian Money, UK Money and all that jazz for those of us who don’t happen to live Stateside. That’s something that is challenging in bigger texts.

I’d love to win this, my Littles would be using for a long long time! :o)

Blessings,

Shannon

I would love to get this to have for Baby Girl if we get to keep her that long. 🙂

renita t says

I forgot to say that I like that it is in segments to make it more easily used. 😉

Elizabeth Herr says

Hi Brenda,

This is a good nut for a squirrel …mmmm… Would love to get my international paws on this : )

Mama Manuscripts says

I would love to win this. It was such a blessing for Liam (we’ve been buying the light blue series for him since we reviewed it) and I am sure that it would help his little sister (who struggles with all things learning but is still young…though I won’t be able to say that forever).

Susan @Homeschooling Hearts & Minds says

I love the mastery aspect. And that I can just pick the workbook for the skill my kiddos needs more on.

Nicole C. says

I’m excited to have the whole series, but I really want the mult and div books.

Catherine says

I love that she put so much thought into what students need, and parents want.

HillaryM says

I love that it is not grade levels so that my three eldest girls–all at different levels than their “age/grade” level could be where their skills and abilities take them. I also love how we can focus on one area until their interest wanes and move on to a different area. We have most of the 1-3 but would love to have the rest. Thanks!

Sue says

What a great give-a-way! I have been thinking about what to do next in regards to math and this would be excellent!

Lisa McClanahan says

Fractions!! Since my daughter loves them & is still loving her book she got to reveiw.

PK @ Knee Deep In Grace says

Definitely interested in the sections covering Ratios, Proportions, Percent, & Algebraic Thinking. Thanks for hosting a great giveaway!

Blessings,

PK

Sara @ Embracing Destiny says

We need the extra help in division/multiplication and geometry. I like it that this is a resource we can just pick up and use anytime without a lot of prep or planning on my part.

Kimberly says

I think that I’d be using both “ends” of the series – I’ve got a first grader and two middle schoolers – so many of the topics are ones we could use work in !

Kym says

We love Math Mammoth too, and are working on a Light Blue set now. I think we would get the best use out of the Multiplication and Division Blue set!

Jennifer K says

I got to review Math Mammoth too and we loved it. It’s really helped math make sense to my daughter. We are still using it, well past the review period. I can see it being something we would stick to. The currency in from several countries was/is one of our favorite parts. That’s just smething that I don’t see very often, and not being in the U.S. It’s a great feature!
