I feel like I should know the answer to this question, but I don’t. What comes next after SCM Arithmetic book 5? It appears to cover all of elementary math and yet most math curriculum take 6 years to cover elementary math. Pre-algebra is usually 7th grade, then algebra and so-on. I know that “pre-algebra” wasn’t a term in CM’s days and I have read that some people have gone straight from Strayer Upton book 2 (grades 5-6) into algebra. I’m originally Canadian so the entire math scope and sequence is a little different for me anyway. I’m just trying to understand the big picture. I’m currently using the Strayer Upton books, but I do think the SCM Arithmetic books would be a little easier for me. I just don’t understand what comes next after you finish the series.
I hesitate to ask this, but I’m also wondering if there is a rough time-table when to expect the series to be finished? My son is currently 3rd grade, but I don’t want to use the series with him and be left hanging next year when I need the 4th book. I’m using Strayer-Upton and it’s going ok, but I would prefer to use the Arithmetic series straight through…
Thanks in advance for any insight!
