Do you have a child struggling in math? Or maybe math wasn’t your favourite subject in school and you are now trying to teach your child while relearning it yourself. Is the math curriculum that you are currently using not feeling like it is a good fit for your child? Maybe you looking for a math curriculum that is all-inclusive? If one of these sound like you, I highly recommend CTCMath for your homeschool. We have spent the past few weeks reviewing a 12-month Family membership to CTCMath.
What is CTCMath?
It is an online math curriculum and provides families with unlimited access to all lessons from grade levels K-12. The lessons include over 1,400 videos that present the math concepts step-by-step in short 4-9 minute long videos.
CTCMath includes all the math concepts that for grades K through sixth grade as well as basic Math & Pre-Algebra, Elementary Measurement, Elementary Geometry, Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus and Calculus.
How CTCMath Works
We received a login for both my 4 year old and my 7 year old along with a parent login.
Each lesson includes a short video and then interactive questions or a printable worksheet. There is also a one-page summary of the lesson that you can print for reference. The fully worked out solution to the problem can then also be printed for reference. This is especially important for the more advanced concepts of math.
In the parent login, there is an in-depth reporting section for you, as the parent, including the ability to assign videos and lessons and the option to have weekly reports emailed to you. The emailed reports can also be accessed through the parent login.
How We Used CTCMath
There is a diagnostic test that your child can take; however, we choose to just work through lessons where my 7 year old son needed practise. My 4 year old started with Kindergarten as he is just beginning.
We worked through a lesson per day for about 3 times per week to help fill in any gaps for my 7 year old. My 4 year old started with number skills in Kindergarten and we are working through accordingly.
I found that the videos and lessons worked very well at giving the boys a good foundation of the skills being taught. My boys are quite strong in math, so we didn’t need to work through all of the lessons in detail. One significant benefit with the 12-month Family membership is that you have access to all grade levels so you can easily work up a grade or down on certain skills if required.
Our Future Plans with CTCMath
We are planning to use CTCMath this year along with our math curriculum to help fill in any of the lessons where my sons need further explanation. Since my boys are both very strong in math, the video lessons for CTCMath are excellent at helping them through any areas where they are struggling or need a bit more explanation.
