    My daughter will be 9 this fall, and is just about to complete Right Start Level E.  She will technically be grade 4 in the fall, but in Math she is grade 5.  On the SCM Curriculum Guide, it is suggested to do Your Business Math (which I will do with her).  Also, it suggests Doing Right Start Geometry or moving directly to Math U See Epsilon. She is definitely mathematically inclined, and truly enjoys math.  My question is:  If I am planning to continue on with Math U See from here on out, will we not cover the things done in Right Start Geometry? Or, is Right Start Geometry a really good way to firm up all of the concepts we have learned thus far, and if we don’t do them it, will we be leaving a gap? Does anyone have experience with both of these curriculums? If I feel that she has a pretty firm grip on what we have done, would it just be a waste of time and money?

    Thanks!

    The general idea I get from being on the RS yahoo group is that it would be good to do RS Geometry.  If the student is later in the math program, it would be okay to skip geometry.  I know that it really makes them think and use many math concepts and can be quite challenging at times.  So it would be good to do if you can.  HTH.

    I am just reading this as I am trying to make a similar decision for my son.  Can you comment on what you decided to do and how it worked out for you?
