Use of Abacus

I am new to MBTP and very excited about the program. However, I never really learned how to use an abacus and am hoping for a link to a tube or other tutorial that demonstrates usage on an abacus similar to the one in the 7-9 Math curriculum kit. S . . .
Need a tutor for material.

Hello everyone! This is our first year homeschooling (chose to because of Covid) and we are having a VERY difficult time supporting our almost 9 year old with the 7-9 curriculum. She is a strong reader and enjoys math, but is struggling significantly . . .

We are half way through our year using the 6-8 curriculum (6 year old {1st grade} and almost 8 year old {2nd grade}). Teaching them together has really worked for us time wise. I was wondering if we continue with the age groups as is and not skippin . . .

We just started MBTP a few weeks ago, and it's going really well. The 7-9 curriculum is great for my 8-year-old son...except for the Spelling quizzes. They are super-easy for him - it almost seems like there's an error in the word list we're accessin . . .

Hi all, I'm looking for some comments from more experienced MBTP families re the final projects. I try to do at least 2 activities for each chapter and find that by the time the final project time is upon us, my children and me are "tired" . . .

Hello, new to all of this. I had ordered 8-10 curriculum for my 8yo, as she did great on the LA assessment, but now looking closer at the curriculum and especially the math, I think she will do better in the 7-9. I reached out to customer service, . . .

I cannot access any websites that utilize flash. I keep reading directions to enable it and I follow the directions but it won't work. I really wanted Carl's Cookie Caper to work for my son. So I will not able to access many websites through this cur . . .

We are in our first 4 weeks to MBTP. My son loved the first 3 weeks using the book Tornado, however here we are in our first week to unit 2 and I've lost him with this book Sarah, Plain and Tall. He has no interest in it. We did one lesson and no I a . . .
