MathandAlgebra.com Review

 

Disclaimer: I received a FREE copy of this product through the HOMESCHOOL REVIEW CREW in exchange for my honest review. I was not required to write a positive review nor was I compensated in any other way.




It is not a secret that I do not like teaching math to my kids.  So I was very excited to get a chance to try a new to us online math program, MathandAlgebra.com  What a great program to use for core subject instruction, or just as a refresher for students who are struggling!


Math can be a subject that is touchy to teach.  I struggle sometimes to remember all the steps that I learned in school.  But with MathandAlgebra.com, the steps needed to learn are done for me.  This video-based instruction program makes it so easy to teach upper level math.  Mathandalgebra.com is set up for instruction with levels of basic math through algebra.  


The program is extremely user friendly.  Each family has a parent login, and parents then input their students to have their own logins.  Inside of the parent account, then parents can track their student's progress.



Each lesson has a video lesson, downloadable worksheet to use after watching the video explain the steps and processes for solving the math problem.  Depending on the topics, roughly every 7-10 lessons there is an online quiz also.  Do not despair though, the downloadable worksheet also has an answer key.  So even if you are struggling keeping up with your child, you have the answers to check your student's work.

The video lessons are very well put together.  The length varies between 10-18 minutes.  I was worried about strange computer voices, which annoy Caty.  But it worked out real well for her.  We were able to start and stop each lesson as needed.  She could re-watch sections of the videos also.  This truly helped Caty.

I will be honest, we were using another math program when we began this review for MathandAlgebra.com.  At first we started out just watching the videos to help her understand topics that she was struggling with in her other program.  But I soon realized how well MathandAlgebra.com is truly laid out as a full math curriculum.  This is a very budget friendly option for families with multiple children.

The materials is laid out for students to work to mastery.  They can easily re-watch and work through problems again as the student is doing the work.  This is a great benefit for using MathandAlgebra.com.


I was on the fence in the beginning whether or not I would be steered away from the math program that we have used for many years.  This video based education style seemed to be working real well for Caty and her learning style.  So we will continue to use this program as we take a break from her current program, and work on the previous Basic Math areas that she struggles with. I can really see the benefit of using MathandAlgebra.com for students who are struggling in math or have learning delays.  I will continue to use this program with Caty and also with Lydia as supplemental to areas where she is struggling.
