  2. Question

    Amber Williams

    How would Math with Confidence compare to a program like The Charlotte Mason Early Arithmetic Series?

      Math with Confidence uses student workbooks, Early Arithmetic does not.

      Both are scripted to differing extents; MWC provides more teacher guidance and context and includes visuals for the lessons.

      MWC First Grade Instructor Book has 537 pages and the Workbook has 262 pages. EA Book 1 has 262 pages.

      MWC First Grade Instructor Guide and Student Workbook together retail for $52 as of this writing (Jan 2023); EA Book 1 is $55 alone and $60 with the optional gridded notebook.

      Lessons are of similar length, roughly 20 minutes.

      MWC uses games as a teaching tool, and includes a list of math picture books for optional enrichment.

      The author of MWC states that it is a middle-of-the-road program in terms of difficulty, that covers all typical topics for each grade. It covers some topics that EA does not, such as time, measurement, and graphs.

      Both programs have samples online that include a table of contents and concepts covered, which can be very helpful for comparison.

  3. Question

    Christine

    Hello, are the workbook and the corresponding teacher’s guide spiral bound? If not, is that an option?

      We do not have spiral bound as a choice. You might check with a local copy center and see if they are able to do it.

    Hi, just wondering if this is more a conceptual or procedural approach? Thanks.

  5. Question

    Angela Tidwell

    I am teaching 1st Grade MWC to my child. My 1st grader likes to visualize mentally, when she needs to use the 10 frame to find the sum of problems within 10. If she doesn’t have to use the counters she likes to use the frames blank and figure it out that way. It works she is able to solve the equations. Should I encourage this or encourage her to use the physical counters? I taught 1st grade mwc already once to my older child and I know later in the curriculum adding +6 through +9 she will need the physical counters at least in the beginning.

      It sounds like she understands the point of the ten frame, so it’s fine if she doesn’t use the counters right now. That mental visualization is a great skill!

    Excellent curriculum!!!

    Angela Tidwell

    I have taught kindergarten MWC twice, 1st almost twice and I am on 2nd MWC now as well. If you want your child’s mathematical knowledge to go deep not just wide this is the perfect curriculum! The games are fun and keep my little ones involved. It is a spiral and mastery program so children will gain all the skills. I would give if 10 stars if I could. The price point is great also. I Will be teaching my children all the way through the 6th grade level and I am sure they will be pre algebra ready by the end of this amazing curriculum!!!
