Since you are teaching multi-age math, you may want to look into a math management program called Accelerated Math by Advantage Learning Systems. I read about it last summer, looked at free material they sent by request, liked it, begged for the program, got it, and love it. I teach math at a high school. The curriculum director had heard of it on an elementary and middle school level, but was not aware it was also intended for high school. I am actually on here tonight because I wanted to see if anyone else was using it in high school. I had this program in use for the last half of second semester this year in two classes. I will be piloting the program next year in all my classes, and wanted input from other users. This program is VERY individualized. Everyone works at their own pace. They have "libraries" for 1st grade through Calculus. I believe it would be perfect for your situation. Let me know if you need more info.
