Not a math curriculum, but a standards-aligned math game that we enjoy:

https://www.prodigygame.com/

I first learned about it from a teacher, and it's been a big hit. You can play solo or against partners, and the difficulty is rated by grade (so a 5th grader can play against a 1st grader and each one plays their own level even if they're dueling).

I am always interested in any program that approaches math conceptually rather than just teaching algorithms and how to find answers. And especially if it comes at it from an angle different from other programs. RightStart Math does this. I am so intrigued by it! I wish I had the funds to buy it and fool around with it.

You should take a look at Gattegno if you're interested in unusual approaches and want to fool around without spending much money. All you need is a set of cuisenaire rods. His books are available free.

Mortensen math is great. Crewton ramones house of math has tons of videos. It takes out a lot of the math nonsense.
