The Problem with a FREE Online Curriculum

A few weeks ago I decided to scrap Singapore math. Curly Q. needed a bit more direction than was given by Singapore's workbooks. The problem is that I could spend a fortune on a math program. As I was debating what to choose I stumbled upon a FREE program out of a British university. It has detailed lesson plans, printable worksheets and even printable resources. Best yet it goes up to 6th grade. I was thrilled and immediately started using it. Curly Q. took to it right away.

Then it went away...

The website went down last week and was out of commission for a whole week. It is up today, but I am not taking any chances. I saved the pdfs to my hard drive. Live and Learn.

Thanks for the info :-) CIMT was only down for a few days,but now I know to print out the stuff I need to have further ahead of time. The other links were really helpful too. BTW do I know you?
