MATH-U-SEE LEVELS

Each of the Math-U-See levels is designed to sequentially follow on from the level preceding it. The Math-U-See program is not based on what age or grade your student is at school, but rather their individual current level of mastery in each maths concept.

The best way to determine what level your student/s should start in with Math-U-See is by taking the online placement test.

Below you'll find a detailed description of what you get in each level of Math-U-See.
