Math is one of those subjects that you either love or hate. There’s not really a middle ground. As a homeschooling mom, I don’t want my children to hate any part of learning, but I do know that some subjects will be tougher than others. Since I am their teacher, I do my best to find a curriculum that works for them – not me.
I have four children that are homeschooling age and each one of them approaches math differently. Two of them are quick at math and two of them are not. But even my pairs learn differently than the other. It is an interesting and at times, frustrating problem to have. We have gone through our fair share of math curriculum to find what works.
Math Mammoth offers not only full curriculum, but review workbooks, activity worksheets and worksheets either by grade or topic. Their products are available as both printed workbooks or downloads. I love that you can choose which style works for your family.
Math Mammoth books concentrate on conceptual understanding and emphasize mental math. The directions in the worktexts are written directly to the student, which makes them often self-teaching. Thus, the books require very little preparation from the teacher — perfect for busy teachers and homeschooling parents! -Math Mammoth site
I have two children that are crazy good at mental math and two that struggle. I like that they focus on helping students strengthen their mental math and that the texts are written on the child’s level, not the teachers. As a busy homeschooling mom of 5 children, we start teaching our children at an early age how to be more independent with some of their school work.
I love that this curriculum is written in such a way that it can be self-teaching and therefore requires little preparation from me! As a busy, homeschooling Mom of 5, time is of the essence when it comes to planning and getting school ready for the coming week. I want our school curriculum to be thorough, but not all-consuming of my time when it comes to preparation.
Math Mammoth organizes their curriculum by color, which is handy if you can’t remember things like me. However, it can be a little confusing, so they have laid it out easily for you here.
If you’re searching for a new math curriculum or a supplement to help your child catch up in the summer months, check out Math Mammoth and what they have to offer.
