UnLock Math: UnLock Pre-Algebra ~ a TOS review

Unlock Math Review

Math can be one of those subjects that makes you tremble with fear with the thought of teaching it to your child. But, it doesn’t have to be! For the last six weeks I have had the opportunity to use UnLock Pre-Algebra with Mikayla from UnLock Math.

UnLock Math is a fairly new online math program that was developed from the teaching passion of Alesia Blackwood. From an early age she knew that she wanted to become a teacher and accomplished her goal in 2000 to teach Mathematics to grades 7-12th.

UnLock Pre-Algebra is recommended for any child who is ready for traditional Pre-Algebra. By breaking up the math lessons into fun, interesting bite-size chunks students are able to understand the concepts being taught and build confidence without feeling any anxiety that typically comes with math. With UnLock Math’s unique teaching style your students will engage in:

~ Teaching Videos that engage, explain, and entertain. Alesia teaches each lesson as she would to a class, explaining the concepts thoroughly and going through several examples. You won’t find any dry, boring lessons here!

~ Advanced Assessment with various question types that truly assess your child’s understanding of concepts.

~ Your Child Will Only See ONE Question at a time. Perfect for students who get overwhelmed and/or anxious when they see a whole page of "math".

~ Immediate Feedback & Fully Explained Solutions for each question presented.

~ Unlimited Practice to really master the new skills.

~ Unlimited Review

~ Grade book & Progress Reports real-time reports so that you and your child can track progress and assignment details.

I was able to use this program with Mikayla, my rising 7th grader. I like that she was able to log in on her Kindle at the gym while she was on break and work on her lesson for the day. Mikayla excels at math but she struggled a bit with some of the concepts at first. I found it helpful to watch the lesson myself first and then ask her questions when she returned home from the gym.

Overall, I really like the way the program is presented and will be continuing to use it as we approach our upcoming school year. Be sure to check out what my CrewMates thought of this program by clicking the banner below.
