Math U See


Systemic and cumulative approach uses definite, logical sequence of concept instruction. Step by step procedures for introducing, review and mastering concepts. Multi-sensory tools used like, videos and manipulatives. Fits a variety of homeschooling approaches including Charlotte Mason, Traditional, Classical, and Relaxed approaches. Placement test used to determine what level to start on. 

Easy for students to work at their own pace and interest level. Four Steps Approach for parents 1. Watch videos and learn the concept. 2. Present and explore the concept together. 3. Student works on the problems in their workbook. 4. Review and Reteach as needed. This program can really have as little or as much parent involvement as the student needs.

Singapore Math-Primary Mathmatics


Singapore is focused on mastery through sequencing of concepts. It features concrete, pictorial, and abstract progression using number bonds, bar modeling, and mental math. Instead of pushing through rote memorization, students learn to think mathematically and rely on the depth of knowledge gained in previous lessons. 

Lessons are self explanatory and students work through concepts without much parent involvement.

Teaching Textbooks


Spiral math instruction, engaging format, teaches in a friendly/non-overwhelming manner. This is one of the most popular homeschool math options "Down-to-earth, audiovisual step-by-step explanations for every single one of the almost 3,500 problems in the book. Using a Teaching Textbook™ is like having a friendly tutor available at the push of a button...because the Teaching Textbook™ series was designed for independent learners, it introduces proper terminology only after first presenting the underlying concept in plain language. Of course, the series includes all the terms that students need to know for important standardized tests such as the SAT and ACT, but our textbooks do not bog the reader down in highly technical language until students are ready to digest it." Can count for the online program requirement.

Mathematical Reasoning


They are fun, colorful workbooks. The lessons and activities spiral slowly, allowing students to become comfortable with concepts, but also challenging them to continue building their problem-solving skills. These books teach more than mathematical concepts; they teach mathematical reasoning, so students learn to devise different strategies to solve a wide variety of math problems. Can be a stand alone or supplemental curriculum. *Note-there is not instructions or a teacher manual. Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut.

Beast Academy


Covers math topics in greater depth, with a strong emphasis on problem solving & logical thinking. Ingenious approach to math learning includes a comic book format vs. textbooks, access to earlier levels of Beast Academy online (for review or if a child isn't quite ready for that level), based on common core standards, covers middle school standards as well, intended for accelerated students. Please note: there can be a learning curve to use and facilitate use because of Beast Academy's unique approach to math instruction. Can count for the online requirement.

Math Inspirations


Math Inspirations is a spectacular program that applies the scientific method to mathematics. Students get to create their own math theorems book over time.

Each topic starts with real life story problems. Students solve them through logic and manipulatives, and develop their own way to do them. (The order of the problems is pure genius and supports students in growing in the concept.) After that, students teach their method to someone else, and use that experience to create a hypothesis. Then they apply their hypothesis to a group of problems, and refine it into a theorem. Students keep a record of their unique theorems in a math notebook.

This curriculum includes a virtual class for parents to help us become better at teaching math. It also includes a book of math games and logic puzzles. 

“Math is a creative art form of problem solving, pattern finding, and hypothesis creation. We will see math everywhere if we are paying attention. The best way for students to learn and retain is to allow them to discover. Give them opportunities and experiences that put them in control of solving patterns, finding patterns, and creating and testing hypotheses.” -Emily Dyke, founder of Math Inspirations.
