Family Math Package Review
A+ Interactive Math (by A+ TutorSoft Inc.) is a great resource for home school math online courses. It’s full of valuable lessons, online math practice, and offline tools as well. We reviewed the Family Math Package which can included up to 10 students and any grade level Grades 1- 6, Pre-Algebra and Algebra 1.
When you open the corresponding worksheet you just have to click print for the work page to go along with the lesson they are working on. The work sheets are straight forward and well done. The offline worksheets combined with the online lessons reinforce each other. We really liked the scope and organization of the program. The focus on testing is something they haven’t really been exposed to as much since we started home schooling. I think they needed to refresh on those skills as well as the actual math skills. It is more of a formal program than we have become accustomed to but I think that is what they will need to build that strong foundation.
All three of the kids have different learning styles and I have always said that the best programs are flexible enough to work with them all. This is a program that has potential to be beneficial to all three of them.
My oldest is a paper and pencil kind of girl. She loves math, history, and science and is gifted in all aspects of the word. She likes to be able to write done and decipher her answers and think about them. The printable lessons were better for her and have worked better with her. It’s also awesome that she can move grade levels as needed as she probably won’t stay in one very long.
My son however, is an online wiz. He is tech savvy and knowledgeable about engineering. He is one of those kids who was taking apart their toys at three just to see how they worked. He also took all the inside door handles off one day and I still haven’t figured out why. He liked the aspect of online education and about being able to do his math on his tablet.
My youngest girl is a wild card. She is coming into to her own with a fierce independence. She enjoys her imaginative play and can create stories that will have me wondering where she comes up with her material. She is allergic to sitting still and I am not ready to try to tame that energy and passion for life. She is a hit or miss but we have worked some of the worksheets into her weekly routine.
They are all different and unique as are all children. Self paced and flexible math courses are a must for any home school classroom!
