• "Math on the Level is a great choice not only for those with more time than money, but also for those who want very personally targeted and family-oriented math instruction for each of their children."     Review by Cathy Duffy

One complete curriculum for the whole family

Math on the Level covers all your math instruction needs for the whole family (pre-K through pre-algebra).  It turns every-day activities into math adventures that help make math meaningful and real. Its intentionally individualized approach lets you adapt your scope and sequence to each child. It is compatible with a wide range of teaching styles and philosophies. It is designed for home instruction by a homeschool educator who understands the unique needs and significant opportunities of teaching your family at home.  Regardless of what program(s) you have used, you can readily place any child, catch up what they have forgotten or did not understand, and get the benefit of individualized, real-life learning, with a review system which keeps them sharp in all their math.

Below is quick overview of each of its seven volumes.

    Overview and Record Keeping

    Inside this volume, a complete Getting Started section teaches you the Math on the Level system and helps you place any child in the program without stress. The initial review process will also locate gaps your child may have in math. The complete record keeping system includes the Concept Chart, which shows where to locate the teaching ideas and review problems for each concept and also provides a simple way to keep track of what each child has learned. Each child's Review Chart helps you plan the on-going 5-A-Day reviews to ensure no math skill is lost. In addition to the paper forms, an auto-scheduling spreadsheet is included which takes the work out of scheduling the 5-A-Day reviews.

    Operations

    The Operations teaching guide starts with very early topics (beginning counting and recognizing numbers) and goes on to cover addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division of positive and negative numbers. Operations also includes many advanced concepts such as roots, exponents, variables, scientific notation, and graphing equations (to name a few). It has a variety of teaching ideas that address different learning styles and emphasize practical, daily life applications, including the use of manipulatives to help each child understand and enjoy the lesson. It also provides practice problems with full solutions for each concept.

    Money and Decimals

    The Money and Decimals teaching guide uses money as a practical way to teach decimals. Starting with identifying and counting money, it introduces decimals and the concept of place value, followed by math operations on decimal numbers. It also covers related concepts like reading numbers, rounding, percents, and computing tax. There are practice problems (with answers) for each concept.

    This teaching guide works particularly well with the "Shopping" Math Adventure. Concepts are taught with practical, daily life applications to help the child understand and enjoy each lesson.

    Fractions

    The Fractions teaching guide starts with the early concepts of matching objects and understanding half and whole, followed by very simple fractions. It goes on to cover addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division of fractions and other related topics such as cross products, reciprocals, rates, ratios, and probability.

    Because fractions are commonly used in cooking, the Fractions teaching guide works particularly well with the Math Adventure section on cooking. The teaching guides are organized to help you teach your whole family together, with each child learning at his or her own level, as you use practical activities and family-centered teaching methods.

    Geometry and Measurements

    Math on the Level uses the term "geometry" for learning basic shapes and formulas for perimeter, circumference, area, and volume. Since measurements are often done on geometric shapes, the volume also includes measurements. Starting out with simple patterns and basic shapes, Geometry and Measurements covers time, weight, shapes and formulas, coordinate planes, positive and negative numbers, and many other related concepts. It includes a reference section on customary and metric measurements and a useful glossary of geometric words. Concepts are taught with practical, daily life applications, using manipulatives and activities to help the child understand and enjoy each lesson.

    Math Adventures

    Math Adventures is filled with helpful ideas on how to teach math through practical daily-life activities the whole family can enjoy. It's sections include on teaching math while cooking, using money, traveling, and even playing games. Since these are normal homeschool activities, you can teach in ways the child can better understand and retain. This practical approach helps the child see math as relevant, practical and fun. A Math Vocabulary section has words to use in family conversations to help familiarize the child with upcoming math concepts. Another section shows how to include math in Unit Studies that usually are otherwise restricted to topics like literature, history, language arts, or social studies but (until now) exclude math.

    Math Resources

    The Math Resources book contains information (like Charts, Graphs and Set Theory) taught as a math concept but also useful in other subject areas, like science and history, and in many other practical areas of daily life. This volume includes practical ways to teach your children how to approach and solve Word Problems. In addition to a Math Dictionary, it also covers different ways to help your children memorize math facts. (An additional resource is the 9's Down Math Facts program, sold separately.) Like the rest of the Math on the Level curriculum, each idea contained in Math Resources reflects an extensive background of working with children with different learning styles plus home schooling.
