Online homeschool math from CTCMath ~ a TOS review

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

 It’s the middle of the summer and what’s a Mom to do to help ward off the dreaded summer slide? Maybe you already received your end of the year testing results back and your child is not quite where you thought or expected them to be. No need to pay for a personal tutor or wrack your brain worrying about “falling behind”, just use the online homeschool math program created just for families from CTCMath. 
CTCMath is the most complete online math tutor covering kindergarten math through Calculus. World – renowned Australian math teacher, Pat Murray, presents math concepts in a visual step-by-step process. If your child didn’t quite get the concept, just stop and rewind or repeat a concept until mastery is achieved. With over 1300 video tutorials CTC Math is there to help your child conquer their math studies and help them excel. Math might just become your child’s favorite subject!

We received a 12-month family subscription. Pricing is just right for families with multiple children or with those just needing a single student. For just $148.50 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! One student access is just $98.50 per year. 

To get started with the program, there is a short diagnostic test for placement. However, you don’t need to start with the placement if your child is in Kindergarten or you know their current math level. Each section is divided into subsections so you can focus on the topic at hand. Since I focused on this for a summer review with Micah I chose not to do the diagnostic test and to just work with the 1st grade level revision sets. As the parent, I am able to set the minimum passing standard, I choose 90% for our family. 

What I like most about this homeschooling math curriculum is that it is traditional based math. No Common Core math is found here! I also like that you can move to any grade level and/or 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 problems, then enter the answer online for scoring. At the end of the question portion, the student is awarded a certificate of completion.
CTCMath is a great program and we are 100% pleased. I love the progress that has been made with Micah over the last six weeks. I did find that when I sat with him in the room he did a lot better on the revision sets as I would not allow him to rush. He missed several of the beginning questions just because he rushed and did not read what it was asking him. I am looking forward to continuing with this homeschool math curriculum for the rest of the summer and as a supplement to our regular curriculum during the school year. I know it will come in handy for Montana, who is not strong at math as she enters Algebra 1.
