Morning friends! It’s Friday and we have made it to the end of week TWO in our new homeschool year. Have you started back to school yet? Does your state require testing each year and the math results for your children were less than desirable? No need to stress or wrack your brain worrying about your child “falling behind” and you don’t need to pay for a personal tutor. How then will you get your student back on track? Easy, just check out the online homeschool math program created just for families from CTC Math.
 CTC Math 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. Your child will have the ability to stop and rewind or repeat a concept until mastery. With over 1300 video tutorials CTC Math is there to help your child conquer their math studies and help them excel. For just $148.50 a year, this is special pricing for us cool homeschoolers, the 12 Month Family Plan allows up to 10 students to have unlimited access to all the levels the program provides. An excellent value for those with larger families! If you don’t need that many students slot, CTC Math is still an excellent value for one student at just $98.50 per year, again half off for the cool kids. An excellent value for those with larger families! One student access is just $98.50 per year.  
 As I said, we received a 12-month family subscription that I used with Micah (8-year old 3rd grader) and McKenzie (12-year old 7th grader). McKenzie and Micah each excel at math which is great. McKenzie however didn’t have a great math year for 6th grade last year, so I was especially grateful for the opportunity to use this homeschool math curriculum as a supplement over the summer months. Fractions and decimals is where she is struggling so I loved that with this program we could focus on those specific areas of hardship.
 Each grade section includes video instruction for the mathematical topics 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 with the option to use a printable worksheet. 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.
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. For Micah I didn’t use the diagnostic test because I knew I wanted to work on the 2nd grade revision sets with him. For McKenzie I had her take the diagnostic test and I am so glad I did so I could see where she was struggling. For both kids I can set the minimum passing standard for their work, I choose 90% for our family.
Overall, we have enjoyed using this and will continue to do so to fill in the learning gaps and shore up our math. And guess what my favorite part of CTC Math is? There is NO Common Core! Just traditional math the way I, and probably you too, learned back in our school days. I also like that you can move to any grade level and/or any section you would like to pinpoint where you need instruction. 
Micah’s favorite part was playing the extra games, Speed Skills and Times Tables, found at the bottom of the website. He is also so close to solving the Swap Pieces game! As for McKenzie, I am looking forward to going full steam ahead and filling in her gaps as our school year has begun. She will be utilizing the CTC Math on her gym double days and when her competition season starts back up and we are on the road again. Her love for math is still there even though she has hit a rough spot. I know with the help of CTC Math she will be able to get back on track and build her mathematical confidence again.
