America's Maths Teacher
We have been using the American Maths Teacher as part of our families involvement with the TOS Review Crew.
America's Maths Teacher is an online maths program that teacher maths from basic maths through to Algebra. It is an annual subscription program that is currently priced at US$195.
The Homeschool Program program has online video's for the students to watch which is then followed by worksheets. Also available is a great resource centre for those who subscribe.
So what did we think about it ~ Well actual Jessica was not all that taken by it. It was a little hard core for her at this stage. She did have fun on the drills but over all she was just not ready for it. It is a very different approach to maths then we take, so selling her on it was a tough job. Course 1 Basic Math Skills is aimed at 4th and 5th graders with topics included are whole numbers, fractions, decimals, percents, integers, geometry, plus more. Jessica tried something from each of those topics in the basic maths program.
I thought for all the program had to offer the price was well matched, but for us not what we are looking for at this time.
