Homeschooling in math works fine until parents get to the math courses that are beyond their expertise, usually starting with Pre-Algebra.
What happens then is that parents have to figure out the math along with their kids, causing confusion and frustration for everyone involved, and causing the math part of the daily lesson plan to take much longer than it should. As a result, not only does math suffer, but the other disciplines suffer as well.
In order to make math manageable, parents often end up offering a watered down version of homeschool math. And in extreme cases, math is ignored completely!
Enter MathHelp. Our homeschool courses start right at the pain point of Pre-Algebra, and continue through Algebra 1, Geometry, and Algebra 2. These are the “big 4” math courses that appear on all the standardized tests and are therefore the most critical for your child’s math education.
MathHelp‘s daily lessons are rich with instruction, so the homeschool parent doesn’t have to worry about shouldering the teaching load. Instead, they can delegate the instruction and spend their time helping their child with the finer points of the lesson.
Each of MathHelp’s courses features enough lessons to last an entire school year, and each lesson offers many different ways to learn, from video examples to guided practice (with audio) to bonus problems to interactive self-tests to printable worksheets and notes. As a parent, you won’t be scrambling around for additional resources. Everything you need is right there in each stand-alone course.
The program is also packed with features that parents love, such as a comprehensive grade report that automatically records student scores, background lessons to build the student’s foundation in math, and a diagnostic quiz before each lesson so that a student can quickly get to the exact point in the homeschool course where they need to start. Finally, printable chapter tests and keys offer parents a traditional way of measuring student progress.
The content and instruction in MathHelp’s homeschool math courses are based on the math curriculum at St. John’s School in Texas, the top private school in the state and one of the top 20 private schools in the country. Instead of offering your child a cobbled-together homeschool math course that you have to teach yourself, give them the gift of a world-class math curriculum taught by professional instructors with years of experience in the classroom. As an added bonus, it will make your life much easier as well!
