There is one aspect of homeschooling high school that has worried me for quite some time. How do I teach higher level math and science? I am all for learning along side my girls, but algebra? Chemistry? Can you hear my whining voice? Do I have to relearn geometry?
The answer is no! Homeschooling parents cover high level subjects in a variety of ways, including classes at a local co-op, private tutors or online curriculum. There are some great resources to help your student excel in these subjects that don’t require mom hit the refresh button on your memory (if only it was that easy). In this review, I’ll share my new favorite resource: Uzinggo.
I was compensated for my time reviewing this product. The following review contains my own, honest opinions based on many hours spent with my daughter evaluating and testing out this resource. You’ll find a generous discount and giveaway from Uzinggo below.
This semester, my daughter is learning with the Uzinggo High School Ultimate Package, which includes interactive math and science classes. She is currently in 9th grade and is working her way through the biology and algebra programs.
The Benefits of Uzinggo Science and Math Lessons
It’s really important for my daughter to enjoy what she is learning and to be actively engaged with the material. This program does that through clear and varied lessons. Lessons run between 10- 20 minutes, but she often chooses to complete several in one sitting. The first day she tried the program she said, “This isn’t bad at all.” That’s a huge compliment coming from a 14 year-old who is rarely enthusiastic about math and science! She likes it. Here are some of the benefits of the program:
- Virtual science labs.
- Printable worksheets to reinforce learning and practice new concepts.
- Visual illustrations of concepts.
- Interactive lessons that can easily be repeated when necessary.
- Clear and simple reporting features that enable parents to view their students progress.
- Self paced, allowing your student to move quickly through topics they understand and slowly through those they find challenging.
Why choose an online resource for high school math and science?
For us, choosing an online curriculum for math and science makes sense. Uzinggo is very affordable in comparison to a tutor or a local class. Math and science are not included in my daughter’s long list of passions, but Uzinggo has made the process of learning biology and algebra more enjoyable. She loves the interactive nature of the lessons. In our homeschool, we like to invest our time (including drive time) and our resources on the subjects my girls love most. As for the subjects that simply need to get done as a requirement, it works better for us to be able to get them done at home on our own schedule.
What about using Uzinggo with a younger child who loves science or math?
My younger daughter (age 10) loves science and plans on becoming a veterinarian when she grows up. I have found her peeking over her sister’s shoulder while she is working on biology. Although she currently takes an advanced science class with local homeschool group, I think she would love to use Uzinggo’s Middle School Ultimate Program for grades 5-8. We plan on getting her started in January and letting her work through the topics that interest her most. With over 1,000 lessons for grades 5-12, I think she will find plenty of information to keep her happy!
