Default Tell me about your Math Wizard

My daughter is showing signs of being an accelerated learner in math. She placed in 2nd grade at the start of the year, but has learned it incredibly fast. She complains about the work being baby work. Answers the problems mentally before I can start writing it out for her, complains she "doesn't know it" after doing a few quickly, because she is bored." She is quick to find patterns, just taught herself 1s and 2s in division, mentally worked out counting by 3s on the first try counting all the way to 60.

I've decided to just push her up to beast academy 3A at the end of February as I am looking at the second half of Math Mammoth 2 and she already knows everything in it except the last 20 pages. So I am going to let her use it more for a quick review and then move on, while focusing on the last 20 pages more in depth as we "review."

Does this sound like the right steps to be taking to you?

Default Re: Tell me about your Math Wizard

Sounds reasonable to me - it's basically what I'm in the process of doing with my dd8 . I gave her the pre-test to see how she did (since we haven't formally covered 3/4 of it ), and now I know what we need to cover before starting. Some things she just needed me to explain once and then she was good (she didn't know what "find the sum" or "find the difference" meant, and she didn't know what a "digit" was; a couple things I think we'll need to do more work on (even/odd and add/sub with regrouping). I'm thinking she'll be ready about the time it arrives in the mail.

Here's the pre-test: http://www.artofproblemsolving.com/S...de/pretest.pdf
