Which math program are you using, do you like or dislike it and why?
I’ll go first. I start out with Moving with Math for the younger ones. It’s heavy on manipulatives and seems to give them a good foundation.
I then move onto Saxon. I know people used to be critical of Saxon but they’ve reworked their program and it seems pretty good now and very incremental. I teach it by myself until the 7th grade then I start using the D.I.V.E. CD-roms. This seems to be working out wonderfully. For some reason they seem to be able to grasp the concept when he explains it as the math gets harder.
