I like Scott foresman Middle school math. Depending on what book you are coming from though you may had difficulty. As some programs like SF start pre-algebra and basic geometry in 3rd grade and expand the skills as children grow. Many of the Generic (though these are rare, now days most are set to federal standardard and do cover these subjects) But some families stick to older homeschool texts stick intirely to the "basics" and so you would need your child to take a basic pre Algebra before switching to SF.Scott Foresman Texts are much more interesting and move much faster than Saxon. In fact from what I saw at the 5th and 6th saxon is at least a year behind SF. But SF is so fun and interesting children actually find it easier, Where Saxon and similar programs look like they were written on a typewriter and have very little graphics or real world math explanations (from what I have seen but that is admittedly a 5 and 8 year old text. they may be better now)

1)There is a Secondary Teachers Store in Warren, MI. Here is the link to their website, specifically to their catalog: https://site.apollohosting.com/secon...335ad7012)Most textbook plublishers now have online content for their series. Sometimes there are puzzles, videos, and other activities. It may be worth while to see if you can find online content to match the book you are currently using.3)Try these publishers, they are some of my favorite:*MindWare - http://www.mindwareonline.com*Milliken Publishing - http://www.millikenpub.com/store/cus...t=1*Cottonwood Press - http://www.cottonwoodpress.com
