CTC Math ~ a TOS review

CTCMath Review

Math has never really been my thing. I mean, I can do it, but its not my favorite. My youngest daughter, McKenzie (5), excels at math. It’s her strongest subject. My other girls girls vary in their math abilities, but non would say that it is their favorite like McKenzie does.

In order to combat the infamous summer slide I was pleased to discover we were on the review list for a 12 Month Family Plan for their US Curriculum from CTC Math. We have been plugging away at it for the last six weeks, let me tell you more about it.

CTC Math is the most complete online math tutor covering kindergarten math through Trigonometry. World – renowned Australian math teacher, Pat Murray, presents math concepts in a visual step-by-step process with the ability to stop and rewind or repeat a concept until mastery.

CTC Math is an online math program with over 1300 video tutorials to help your child in their math studies. For just $118.00 a year, the 12 Month Family Plan allows up to 10 students to have unlimited access to all of the levels the program provides. An excellent value for those with larger families.

At this current time I have two of my four school-aged daughters, Montana (8) and McKenzie (5), working throught this homeschool math curiculum as a supplement to their regular program. I plan to have Madison (14) and Mikayla (12) start worling with the program in July when they have finished their current math curriculum. One of the features I like about the online program is that Mikayla will be able to complete a lesson while on break at the gym on her kindle. You only need internet access.

There is a diagnostic test for placement, however, I had McKenzie start within the Kindergarten section and Montana in the 2nd grade section. Each section is divided into subsection so you can focus on the topic a t hand. The parent is able to set the minimum passing standard, I choose 90% for our family.

With this program you can move to any grade level and any section you would like to pinpoint where you need instruction. Each section includes video instruction which are typically 10 minutes in length. Once the lecture is complete the student then tests his or her knowledge by answering 10 questions. At the younger grade levels the students answer questions online. Older, more advanced students print out a worksheet to work the problem, then enter the answer online for scoring. At the end of the question portion, the student is awarded a certificate of completion. This is something that my two younger students enjoyed.

One of my favorite features has to e the weekly email summaries. I was able to see just how much or little progress each daughter made and what skills they had trouble on.  CTC Math is a great program and we are 100% pleased. I love the progress the girls have made! McKenzie frequently did 3-4 section a day and would jockey for computer time between the older sisters.

We will be continuing to use this program for the rest of our subscription and will renew it when time comes due. I look forward to using it with my older girls in a few weeks so they too may see their progress. If you are looking for a quality comprehensive online math curriculum, look no further than CTC Math.
