Disclosure: I received free curriculum for review purposes and am being compensated for my time. I am not required to give a positive review. As always, I am sharing my honest opinion with you.
Have you heard of CTCMath? A couple of my friends use this online math curriculum and encouraged me to try it out. I kind of brushed them off because we already have a shelf full of Teaching Textbook programs that all of my older kids have used. Those cost a pretty penny so I wasn’t interested in trying something new. Don’t fix what ain’t broke, right?
Well, guess what … this past year it broke. My 7th grader was really struggling with math and I knew she needed to try a different approach. For a split second, I insanely considered just quitting math for the year … that’s how bad it was.
Once I returned to my senses, I remembered how much my friends liked CTCMath so I decided to sign up for a free trial to see if it would work for my daughter.
It turns out that she does much better with the mastery approach of CTCMath than she does with Teaching Textbook’s spiral method. Because the lessons are broken down by topic, she was able to jump right in and start where she was having problems.
Online Math Curriculum
CTCMath is an online curriculum that allows my daughter to independently learn. It teaches, quizzes, corrects, and grades.
- Short 4-9 minute videos on each topic
- Interactive questions and printable worksheets
- One page summaries for review to print & add to a notebook
- Step-by-step solutions showing how to solve each problem
- The ability to learn by topic instead of grade level
- A task assigner to schedule out lesson assignments for your child
- Detailed progress reports that get emailed to the parent
- Works for a complete curriculum or supplemental help
There are also some fun math drill review games.
The ability to dig into one topic at a time was what my daughter needed for the math light bulb to come on.
Affordable Math Curriculum
One of the great things about CTCMath is that you can use the account for ALL of your children, making it a very affordable option.
