I’m in the final stages of finalizing what we will be using for our curriculum this year and am doing well in choosing every subject except for Math. We had been using Math U See and it works well for some of our kids, but not for all of them.
There are many factors to consider when it comes to choosing math curriculum. Math is my least favourite subject and the one that is my personal weakness so I am not confident in teaching it. When the kids were younger and I was only teaching simple addition, choosing curriculum wasn’t as big of an issue, but as they get older, the stakes get higher.
In our family, there are also several special needs to consider and a variety of learning styles so there may not be a one-size-fits-all curriculum for us. My preference would be to use just one math program for all of the kids but I am going into this search open to the possibility that I may end up having to go with more than one program and customizing it for each child.
I reached out to my fellow homeschooler bloggers for their help and advice on this curriculum quest and they have not let me down! With their help, I have compiled a list of math curriculum reviews that may help you or I in choosing a homeschool math curriculum.
