Gets the job done
Review by Rose
We started in MFLE way back in first grade and it continues to be a great choice. The lessons are short but contain all the meat needed plus review. I like the spiral approach that keeps coming back around to things that were already learned but always need review. Finishing our 4th year and he has a good understanding of math concepts with this series.
Overall loved it
Review by Sarah
We really enjoy this approach to math for younger elementary. We didn’t plan to stick with it past level three, but my son wanted to keep doing it. I do feel like he has learned a lot, so the approach is working for him. We decided to move forward and also, do level five for this school year .
This math curriculum is the best!
Review by Christina
We struggle with math, but this book is wonderful. I have noticed a difference in how much my children are retaining. I love that the lessons are short, to the point, and include wonderful stories with each lesson. The curriculum that we used prior to switching to Master Books math was causing tears and constant frustration. Switching to Master Books allowed peace back into my house during math time. We can't thank you enough for this beautiful curriculum.
A game changer!
Review by Ellen
We found Master Books Math after my daughter went through two other math curricula that weren't working for her. Now she is excelling in math - it's not too overwhelming for her, but she's getting and understanding everything she needs to in Math. I believe it's because this curriculum is specifically tailored to the homeschool child. Thanks Master Books!
Math at it's best
Review by Brenda
My children love these Math books, especially my kids who are not fans of math, it made it "fun again". My oldest was so sad when he aged out of this set of books. He really struggles with math and these books made math easy for him to understand and he looked forward to doing the lessons. For it is a gentle approach to the subject that is not overwhelming but gives a wonderful foundation in math. I highly recommend the entire set. My son is in high school now and said the other day he is jealous of his brothers that they are doing the good math. lol
got us back on track with math
Review by Rachel
we had many math woes after trying other programs that just didn't work out with my daughter and stressed her out. we tried MLFALE and it was so gentle and effective, that it was an answer to prayer! it took all the stress out of math and now she's back on track. 5 stars!
We love Master Book math
Review by Katie
Short but powerful lessons!
love the short to the point lessons
Review by Crystal
I am so thankful that MLFLE cuts out all the busy work. My daughter does struggle with it still, but I know that if we keep at it she will get there. It is short enough and easy enough to add in more practice when needed
Great book
Review by Jamie
Master Books continues to make these curriculums in a way to keep my daughter learning new concepts without the frustration of excessive repetition
Best Math Curriculum
Review by Leanne
I have used this series f0r a few years now 3rd-6th grade and I love this program. It has worked wonders for my kids (even my math challenged one). It is very spiral with review throughout the book. I also like the ease of use of this book, very open and go and the record chart in the front is so helpful!
