We are in our 12th year of homeschooling. My husband and I are both gifted in the field of mathematics. However, the majority of our children did not receive that gift. A couple of them truly struggle with math. I was thrilled to receive CTCMath‘s Family Membership with my kids, and homeschoolers can get 60% off + 6 bonus months. Or you can select a 4-month free trial. However, these special offers are only good until November 15th.
I love that this program is video-based and offers the option of either a single student version or a family version. We received the family membership. I set up accounts for our three children who are ages eighteen, sixteen and fourteen as well as an account for myself. For a high school student, the videos take about 8-10 minutes to watch plus the time to complete the exercises.
CTC Math is designed for children in grades Kindergarten thru twelveth grade. It is perfect for getting caught up, staying up or moving forward. I like that children learn at their pace rather than someone else’s pace. Each high school lesson contains a video, practice problems, and a worksheet. I like the fact that the worksheets can be printed out at the high school level. CTCMath’s founder, Pat Murray created this multisensory approach to math that is used in Australia, the United States, the United Kingdom as well as other parts of the world.
With three high school students, this plan was perfect for our family. The family membership gives the parent the opportunity to add family members to the account. Once added, they can work on diagnostic tests as well as the various courses. I primarily was interested in this program as a way to fill in some gaps on increase proficiency.
One of my favorite things about this program is that I as the parent have the ability to determine the proficiency level I require. So for our children, I selected 90% as what they needed to achieve. Another thing I love is that the program goes all the way from Kindergarten to Calculus.
Our fourteen-year-old daughter needed to brush up on her skills for Algebra. Our sixteen-year-old son needed to brush up on Geometry. I just selected various lessons from the different courses to try. However, my husband and I both plan on using this program to continue brushing up on our math skills.
I did lessons in Algebra I as well as Algebra II. I found the videos to be straight-forward, informative and easy to follow. I appreciate that there are not a lot of distractions. I also like that the questions in the practice section relate to the lessons being taught. Our children found the questions easy to follow and easy to answer.
Here is a screenshot of one of the videos.
Here is a screenshot of one of the practice problems for the Order of Operations sections of Algebra I. I love how the students can see their progress as they move through the exercises. Plus, they can also see their score to the point of completion as well.
Here are some sample worksheets – one from Algebra I, one from Geometry and one from Algebra II. For each worksheet, you have the option to print out the worksheet. Then the student enters the answers and finally, the student can view the solutions.
Our family really enjoyed CTCMath and I encourage you to try it for yourself. Remember, you only have until November 15th to take advantage of the 4 weeks free trial or the 60% off + 6 bonus months. If you want to read more reviews of CTCMath, click here or on the image below.
