How did you like the business math and visual latin? I am looking at both of these for next year? I would love to hear how you felt about it.

Our Homeschool Reviews

I thought Visual Latin was going to be great, and it was until about half way through when it moved to quickly for my dd. Being in 5th grade though, she is still on the young end for it, so maybe that is why. We had to put it down and move to something else. The Business Math we both really like but since it is a supplement, we haven't finished it. I was hoping to get further in it this summer but it's not working out the way I planned.
