We tried Abeka Arithmetic 6 and God's Gift of Language B last year for a bit, with our 11 year old daughter and, to be honest, we REALLY were not keen on either one. Bright & colourful, yes. The work itself though - repetitive & dreary. Not enough explanation either and the teacher's book is solely an answer key, NOT a "teacher's guide". Daughter did NOT like it at all, and frankly neither did I. Might be a good fit for some, but it wasn't for us. Too much like public school materials, perhaps. Sorry!

No need to be sorry, we appreciate your frankness! Someone may be looking for a program similar to public school and like it! However, if you are, you may want to take a peek at the “Teacher’s Guide” first. Or check out what other math curricula families are using in “YOUR Math Reviews”.
