#34 What We Are Using for Homeschool Math Curriculum

Homeschool Math curriculum has never ceased to amaze me, both in good and bad ways. There is SO. MUCH. OUT. THERE. At my most recent flip through of homeschool books I even saw a math curriculum built around horses (say what?!?!?! don’t ask me what it was, I don’t remember, but it exists!). I get overwhelmed just thinking about learning about yet another math, I just need something that works, for me AND my children. It sounds so simple, but it is so much harder than it sounds isn’t it? In today’s episode, I share what we are using for math, what we have used in the past and why we aren’t going with it, and why we chose what we chose. Here’s a sneak peek at what is in our bins this year.

  1. Thank you for your honesty and information, this is our 2nd year with TT and our 2nd year homeschooling and they are not loving it and like you said I find they didn’t retain much from last year (even though we used the workbooks) and cannot explain the concepts to me. However, my kids dont want to switch, math is not easy for them and im also scared to spend money on something and switch them not knowing if it will be good. but I think l need to bite the bullet and try. Mlfale appeals to me but there are mixed reviews and placement testing was a bit frustrating for them (but it was after summer break too) so I didn’t do it… I think I just need to try.

  2. I was homeschooled using Saxon math and I have used it with my 8th and 11th graders since 4th grade. The way we kept it from being overwhelming is that, if the kid is getting it, getting all the answers correct, they just do the even, or just the odd number problems in each lesson. That way they are still getting a variety of problems, but a smaller quantity.
