Practical Homeschool Math Curriculum
Math on the Level is a flexible, maturation-based, homeschool math curriculum with a very effective review system. It's unique approach is designed to turn your home environment into a rich, real-life learning experience and make math education meaningful and fun for your whole family.
How Does Math on the Level...
With Math on the Level, "life is your classroom" is literally true. You can take advantage of everyday experiences to teach math to your children within the framework of a complete curriculum that provides structure and teaching ideas.
Each child matures at a unique pace that affects the child's ability to understand math concepts. Instead of a one-size-fits-all approach based on age or grade, Math on the Level is designed to help you teach to your child's actual maturation level.
...let me teach the way I like?
This homeschool curriculum is designed with the understanding that you know your child best. It includes a variety of teaching methods to best fit your teaching style and your child's learning style. It is thorough without being rigid, providing guidance without mandates.
...get long-term retention?
An individualized review-over-time approach moves the learning to long-term memory. Starting with daily review, each new concept is gradually spaced out over time as skill and understanding are demonstrated. Practice gets concentrated where needed and repeated at a pace to ensure retention.
...look day by day?
Math on the Level adapts to your lifestyle, and your daily activities become ways to teach math. Typically two to three days per week you teach using an activity that reinforces or introduces a math concept. The other two to three days per week can be more traditional instruction using a whiteboard or paper and pencil.
What if my child...
...is advanced in math?
Children who are quick to learn math can move through the program at a rapid pace. There is no need to "run in place" when the child is ready to move on. The real-life approach helps them see how their math skills can be put to use.
...struggles with math?
No-one likes being set up to fail, which is what happens when a child is taught before being able to learn. Adapting the pace to the child using activities that make math real can bring back the joy of learning -- even with math!
...isn't ready for formal math?
A child who is just beginning to learn math skills may need more time to do hands-on activities before starting formal math. Also, many studies suggest that delaying formal math until age 10 or more is beneficial for some children. Math on the Level provides ways to teach math while delaying formal math as long as needed.
...is older and behind in math?
The Math on the Level review and teaching approach will fill in any gaps and provide real learning without any grade-level stigma of "being behind." Its fresh, real-life approach can help motivate your child to try again.
...has learning challenges?
Children with learning challenges benefit from Math on the Level's real-life approach and flexibility to adapt to each child's needs and abilities. Its review system achieves long-term retention without requiring large problem sets.
