Finding a Homeschool Math Curriculum
What math homeschool curriculum works well for your family? We have tried out many different homeschool curriculums. I tried to come up with a fairly comprehensive list of math curriculums that are available. This week, I updated and added to last year’s post on Choosing a Homeschool Math Curriculum. That post was so meaty and has so many good links, I’m going to send you straight there!
Just let me add, that it seems that every year I try out different math curriculums, but the Spectrum Math workbooks (affliate link) and their many (many) practice problems have always been our spine. We skip all around the book (the kids do 3 or 4 problems on 3 or 4 different pages from all around the book simultaneously). That still seems to work best for us. And of course as you know, I make a lot of math worksheets for the kids along the way. 🙂
LD spent much of this year on PreAlgebra (more about that over at the other post), but then this spring he used the McGraw-Hill Education Math (affliate link) to polish some 6th grade math skills. He went back and reviewed percentages, fractions, decimals and a couple other chapters in the McGraw-Hill Math workbook. He really liked that book, so I recently bought the next grade for him (for next year).
Anyway, be sure to visit our Homeschool Math Curriculum post. (You’ll see I also added a link in the sidebar.) It includes lots and lots of engaging math activity ideas as well!! Oh–and if you have a math curriculum you love, please drop me a note (here or over at our Homeschool Den Facebook Page) so I can add that to the list!! ~Liesl

Thanks for the great information! Obviously a strong math curriculum is crucial, and so are different methods of practice to keep kids engaged with the content. That’s where this new app comes in: Tic Tac Math Trilogy. It’s a fun, familiar game for kids of all ages to practice their math skills. With options spanning from basic math to algebraic systems, it’s a great tool for new learners up to high school students! It’s a fresh and educational twist on the old classic game of Tic Tac Toe. Please check it out and let us know what you think!
Thanks so much!
