    Default Having trouble picking which Math Mammoth level

    My 4th grader took the MM level 3 test to see if we were moving on to 4. Well, he really struggled with a good bit of it and ended up with lots of unanswered questions and a 70%. In looking at the tables of contents for 3A and 3B...I KNOW we need 3B, but there were a couple things in 3A that I know he hasn't mastered (roman numerals, order of op).

    Would you suggest starting at 3B and just find/print some stuff on those couple holes that need filled or would you go all the way back to 3A and run through it faster?

    I am doing 3A right now with my 3rd graders. Honestly, the OoO parts was a bit over their heads and we had to do it all orally. They got it, and did fine, but it wasn't a skill I think they really need to know. We also skipped the roman numeral chapter. These are just a few pages each and not something I think you have to teach before moving on. What I do see a lot of in 3A is basic multiplication tables and adding and subtracting w/ regrouping. THese are the major themes of 3A IMO. If your child can add and subtract 3 digits with regrouping and knows his multiplication tables, you may want to start at 3B. That said, there is nothing wrong w/ reviewing. If you will wait until it's on sale, you can get the entire PDF for very cheap. This way you could go through the 3rd grade and print off stuff he needs tow ork on. You could also look ahead the the 4th grade, and see where he lines up ability-wise. You may need to just do a few chapters of 3rd to get him ready.

    If you feel if he only needs help in a couple topics, you could also look at the Blue series and just work on those areas.
