Online homeschool math and algebra with MathandAlgebra.com ~ a TOS review


Disclaimer: I received a FREE copy of this product through the HOMESCHOOL REVIEW CREW in exchange for my honest review. I was not required to write a positive review nor was I compensated in any other way. All opinions I have expressed are my own or those of my family. I am disclosing this in accordance with FTC Regulations.


Hey there! Are your kids math whizzes? Or are they struggling just a bit? My own children are far from whizzes, but I do have a few that excel naturally at math. For the ones that don’t, it takes just a little bit longer to grasp concepts. I am so glad that for the last few weeks we have been able to use the MathandAlgebra.com homeschool math program to solidify their math skills.


A huge part of excelling in math is being confident in your math abilities. MathandAlgebra helps to zoom into the fundamental math and algebra skills that are needed to excel in upper level math. For this review we received access to the complete four course online program for up to 3 students. There are four levels including Elementary, Intermediate, Pre-Algebra, and Algebra. I was able to enroll my daughters, Mikayla (12th) in Algebra, Montana (8th) Pre-Algebra, and McKenzie (5th) in the Elementary courses. 
 



For Mikayla we have been using this as a fast review of Algebra in addition to her Pre-Calculus studies this school year. She is wanting to take the ACT test again in December or January to raise her math score from her only 2018 test score we have. While we have been studying for the test, I noticed her algebra skills are where she is consistently missing answers on the practice tests. Because she has been unable to test recently (because of COVID cancellations) we are looking to strengthen her basic algebra knowledge by using this program.

 


Montana and McKenzie have both been plugging away at their prospective levels of Pre-Algebra and Elementary math. I will say that I may move Montana back down to the Intermediate math as the Pre-Algebra seems to be more advanced for her right now. She is currently in Pre-Algebra but this program jumped right into lessons that she did not understand. And since she is one of my children who does not excel naturally at math we both feel it is best for her to take it slow so that she can master the concepts. McKenzie on the other hand is one of my children who enjoys math! She also likes worksheets so this curriculum is a great fit for her.


Getting started with the MathandAlgebra program is really easy. Each chapter is broken down into sub-chapters / concepts. Your student simply logs into their student account and starts with the first lesson and progress from there. Lessons are taught by short video instruction that teach all necessary concepts for the lesson. If you have a visual learner these videos are the jackpot! The teacher goes step-by-step through every concept. And if you don’t get it the first time then just rewind the video and start it again. There is also a worksheet to complete to test the mastery of the concept of what was just learned. Don’t worry, the answer key is also provided for the parent if math is not your thing.




 


Guess what!? We love this math homeschool math program! We will definitely be continuing with it through the rest of the year. Since Mikayla is working at a faster pace, typically she completes 3-4 sub-chapters a day, she will be finished with her algebra review by the beginning of December. I have already seen an improvement in her practice test scores, so we are both confident that she will raise her math sub score to the goal she set. Montana and McKenzie will also continue with the MathandAlgebra.com program, just at a slower pace.
