Math is my major weak spot, I can do it- but I need some instruction before I teach the kids. I am looking for a curriculum with instructional videos that we can watch together. I like the envision math videos- but I can't purchase the digital access to them as a homeschooler (that I have found). I was looking at Saxon math using the DIVE videos to go with it- but I'm a little unsure about Saxon in general.
Does anyone have any other suggestions on math cirriculm with video tutorials?

what grades are you looking for math curriculum for? (some folks prefer one over another for different ages....)
They will be 3rd and 5th- thanks!
We like Math u see and Aleks.
MUS had a DVD and a written teacher's manual. We haven't ever used the book for teaching as the DVD covers everything well.
MUS is mastery and many may not like starting a mastery curriculum this late but I did it with my oldest at third and he took to it well.

You might check out Teaching Textbooks. Definitely give the placement test if you decide to buy. TT has excellent resale value on ebay.

math u see
these two are what we r switching to
We've loved Math U See. We watch the DVDs together and if she asks a question and I forget how he explained it, I can refer back to it in the teachers manual. Lately, she hasn't wanted to watch the DVDs so I occasionally watch the video on my own if I'm confused what they're referring to in the manual, and then I can just read from there when we go over it,
