### 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 a student is in at school, but rather their individual current level of mastery in each concept area.

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

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