In my life as a homeschool mom, teaching math has always been my least favorite challenge. The early years are fun and easy, but as my kids progress through middle school and high school math, I stop having fun. When they stop having fun too, and math becomes a chore. To avoid this, I stay on the lookout for a math program that takes the stress out of math -for all of us – so I was delighted to have an opportunity to review a high school math program from UnLock Math with the Butterfly (13).
The lessons are presented with short videos, and followed up with a variety of exercises. Lessons are designed to take about 30 minutes, and if completed daily, the program would take 9 months to complete.
The videos are playful, without being too goofy, and my daughter enjoys them. The problems presented in the exercises are automatically scored and tracked by the program, and all of your student’s progress can be viewed quickly on the student dashboard. It’s simple to recognize where a student may need extra practice, and they can go back to the areas where they need improvement. The system also allows them to move at a pace that is comfortable for them.
The gradebook allows parents to see when assignments were completed, how much time was needed, and all scores in the gradebook. If you need a printed record for your state reporting requirements, you have the option to print out progress reports.
UnLock Math also offers courses for Algebra 1, Algebra 2, and Geometry. For more information click here.
