    I know you are working diligently on this! My daughter is going to need it very soon. Maybe right after Christmas. Do you know if it will be ready? We are so excited for it to come out! 🙂

    Do you feel confident that a child would be ready for pre-algabra after math 6? Wish this was already available my daughter could use it now.

    Seeing this just made my day! We discovered your books late in the game, but my dyslexic 5th grader LOVES it and I was already starting to fret over what to do with him next year…we do this and Life of Fred and he is THRIVING which makes this momma’s heart soar. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!

    So looking forward to trying this!!! I am switching my daughter from her completed TT5 to your level 6. Do you know if your level 6 is comparable to TT6? She has been working on MUS Epsilon when she gets bored of TT and am hoping that the story will keep her interested while we combine this with LofF. Do you plan to continue higher levels with this curriculum? 🙂 We’ll be switching the younger ones from MUS to your curriculum as well!

      Math Lessons for a Living Education Book 6 scope and sequence is more advanced than the TT6. It covers about 2/3 of what TT7 covers. I highly recommend having your student take the placement test available at 🙂 Math Lessons is not completely based on a “grade level” approach. I focused more on age appropriateness and skill level. I hope this helps! 🙂 Also, Book 6 is the last book in this series. When your child completes it, they will be ready for placement in a pre-algebra program.

    I know that these don’t really go by grade level – so what are your thoughts on an average 7th grader using book 6? The last few months my twins have been using Principles of Mathematics – some of it has been easy, but a bit of the terminology is difficult for them (and there’s so much reading), and now they’re struggling a bit with the fractions and the story problems. Wondering if this might help ease them into these tougher concepts a bit more? I noticed that both books have very similar concepts. Thank you.

      It definitely sounds like kiddos would benefit from a trip through Math 6. 🙂 The scope and sequence of 6 is perfect for anyone who has completed Math 5 OR most 11 – 14 year olds.

    I am planning to use Math 6 for my struggling 7th grader. I then plan to move on to a Pre-Algebra program (either Math U See or Teaching Textbooks).

    Hi Angela, we have really enjoyed using this curriculum. I’m looking into buying the Level 6 but noticed that there is also a teacher guide available at this level too. I wasn’t expecting to buy anything but the student book as in the past versions. Can you tell me why this is different from the previous versions and if it is necessary? Thanks!

    • Angela O'Dell

      Yes, Book 6 does have a separate TG which includes quizzes and test, as well as the answer key. We felt the need to transition the student into a more conversational style instruction, which takes more room. I believe that when you purchase a student book, you do receive a code for a free Teacher’s book. 🙂

      • Christa

        Thanks, I’m hoping you are right about the code for the free Teacher’s book. I contacted Masterbooks about it. Great job:)

    Hi Angela! I am so excited to get started with your curriculum! I have 4 kiddos, 1st grade, 4th and twin 6th graders. Just two questions for you:

    1) What math manipulatives do I need for the programs?

    2) What do I do when they hit 7th grade? Will you be coming out with more books?

    • Angela O'Dell

      Also, after completing Book 6, your student will be prepared to go into any pre-algebra course. I highly recommend that you look at Principles of Mathematics, by Katharine Loop. This is available through Master Books. 🙂
