School was never a strong point for me. I don't think that I'm stupid,I think it was the way it was taught to me. I didn't understand so much, so I try to make sure that the curriculum we use explains things really well and makes it easy. That is why we use RightStart. Brie doesn't like math, but I'm hoping this gives her the base to at least understand everything. (unlike me!) The nice thing about RightStart is that they have 5 levels and then go into algebra. If you have to take longer on something you don't really get behind. I've spent a lot of time looking @ math programs trying to decide what's right for us, but I'm sticking with RightStart for now.
