Math is often times one of the toughest subjects to teach and learn in the homeschooling world. Although my boys love and usually thrive in Math, there are still gaps in their learning certain aspects of Math. That’s why I’m glad we have been granted the chance to review A+ Interactive Math’s new online Math Mini-Courses through the Schoolhouse Review Crew. This is especially true for us since we’ve taken advantage of when they have given us access to getting a year’s worth of Math curriculum for our kids.

Jimmy and Delbert both got to take different classes. I had Jimmy take the Elementary and Middle School Division course.
Delbert took the Measurements and Conversions course.
Jimmy liked the fact that he was able to see right away how he was doing. Plus, he had several options to help figure it out more if he showed he was still struggling with the concepts.
They both liked that everything was primarily ONLINE. For them, that is a huge deal. As a result, it didn’t really feel like they were “working” too hard to learn this material. Their favorite aspect is the videos.
As a homeschool parent, I like the fact that everything is automatically graded for me. Plus, I have my own login information so I can see both of their reports on one screen. It helps make life easier. I do like seeing my kids comprehending the material because it’s taught in a fashion that they can enjoy.
Do you think your kids would enjoy this program?
