Homeschool Curriculum-Remedial Math for HomeschoolersAug 20th, 2010 | By Jessica Parnell | Category: Curriculum Reviews, Featured Articles, General Homeschool Posts, Math and Science
You’ve tried all the typical homeschool math courses–Saxon, Singapore, ACE, Horizons . . . but the struggle continues. Perhaps you are a homeschooler seeking a better option for math or maybe you have a student who is attending school but needs a remedial math course that will help him or her finally master the concepts.
Let me tell you about a remedial math course that has people raving. I know it sounds like I am writing an ad but please understand my sincerity here. This course works!
Bridgeway Math is a remedial math course written specifically to be used as a homeschool independent study course. No teacher’s guides, no extra work, no extra instruction needed. Instead, it provides step by step easy to follow instructions to the student and plenty of practice to ensure that they are really mastering each concept.
It starts with the basics–I mean the real basics (remember, this is a remedial math course). Place value, adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing, with the premise that without these foundational skills, math will never come easy to a student. From there, students move through problem solving, fractions and decimals, basic pre-algebra and geometry and all the concepts necessary to prepare a student for success in the upper level math courses. All in one full year math course!
Somehow the way this remedial homeschool math course presents the material works! Kids just get it and find that they are able to succeed as they move on to more difficult concepts. The order makes sense, the easy to understand teaching and instructions, the number of practice questions for each concept… All carefully put together to ensure success.
I have seen this remedial math course used for children in 7th grade all the way up to high school seniors in need of extra instruction in math. And it works.
Once only available to Bridgeway Homeschool Academy students, you can now order it at Curriculum Express. The total cost for both student texts and the answer key is $69.99 . There is also a Bridgeway English course which you can read about by clicking here.
If you have used this course, we would love to hear from you. Please post your comments and help other homeschoolers who may need a strong remedial math course for their child.
