CTCMath let us check out their homeschool math program. We’ve used it before and it’s a program we keep going back to. This year I set up Riley and Jahnna with the CTCMath Homeschool Membership. The membership allows up to 10 students to be on one account.
The great thing about CTCMath is that you are able to see any lesson at any time for any level. If you student works fast and fly’s through the work they can continue with the next grade. They need to go back and refresh on a concept, you can do that. There are over 1300 videos to watch and learn. Each video is 4 to 9 minutes, which means most kids and this definitely include Riley can pay attention long enough for the video to finish.
If your student needs hands on worksheets each lesson has both interactive questions and worksheets. You can print worksheets off and complete as needed. If you prefer not to print of worksheets, the interactive questions are scored and entered into the each student’s progress reports. Need more review? There is a one page summary at the end of each lesson for revision or review. If your students learn from seeing problems worked for them this can be very helpful. Your student does the problem first and then the questions are examples once the answers have been entered.
Do you live in a state that requires reporting or portfolios? You’ve got them with CTCMath! There are reports for each student using the program. You can see how many lessons there are for each topic, how many lessons have been attempted and how many have been passed. You can also see how much time the student spent on each lesson. I love that you can tailor the curriculum to fit each child’s individual needs based on what the reports show. The reports are emailed to you weekly but you can access them from your account for up to three months.
There are 3 different payment options available. There are options for 1 student or 2 to 10 students. You can pay either monthly at $29.97 for 1 student or $39.97 for 2 to 10 students. The 6 months option is $127 or $197. For a year it is $197 or $297 which is the best value for one year of access to the program.
Our Homeschool Math Experience
We LOVE CTCMath at our house! I’ve found that it is simple for Jahnna and Riley to use. They enjoy the videos and don’t feel like I’m giving them busy work. I can convince them to watch and do a lesson even on days they really don’t want to do math. This includes doing a review in the middle of summer! They both made the comment at some point that “It’s summer! I don’t want to do math!” Twenty minutes total to do a lesson or wash all my windows settled that debate pretty fast! Lucky for me they haven’t figured out I was joking! My windows are still dusty but they’ve been progressing so it’s a win for me.
Jahnna has used CTCMath before so I didn’t have to show her anything. The picture above is a sample of the work she did two years ago. It’s stored in her account even though we took a one year break. Riley picked it up quickly. There were a few lessons where she needed to go back and review some previous lessons in 3rd grade. She was disappointed until I told her that different homeschool math curriculums cover topics at different paces. Riley is going to homeschool this year so this will be the curriculum she continues with for the rest of the year. I love that it’s a complete curriculum. Both girls like it and it’s effective. I couldn’t ask for anything more!
