Sweet Critique: Interactive MATH

I see the posts all the time:

Math is a four letter word in our house.

Most homeschoolers search far and wide for the math curriculum that fits their child’s needs.  Once they find it, they hold on tight.

Over the past three years Babydoll and I have tried several math programs.  Each had its merits, but ultimately, we’re still searching.

It’s not that any one particular program has been bad, they’ve just not been quite right.

What does all this mean for you?

Well, it means that we’re still trying different programs and I get to share our experiences with you!

I was recently sent a copy of Interactive MATH Premium to try.  I’ve given it a thorough look-through so I’m ready to let you know what I think!

OUR THOUGHTS

The program is computerized, which I love.  You know I’m a huge fan of technology.

This means that you get a wealth of information in the Premium addition:

  • Multimedia Lessons
  • Math Book
  • Worksheets
  • Exams

The Table of Contents to the left of the screen makes it very easy to identify exactly what you’d like your child to study and delve right in.

The program covers a wide range of topics, too:

  • Addition
  • Subtraction
  • Multiplication
  • Division
  • Geometry
  • Fractions
  • Decimals

 

There’s quite a bit more that is covered.  You definitely get an extensive program.

The multimedia lessons can be followed up with worksheets and exams, and the program is set up to allow the parent to track progress.

I did have a bit of trouble getting us signed up; I was unable to see the boxes to type in Babydoll’s name and was promptly warned that I could not change that student so I had to hope I had the name typed correctly.

Also, some of my options were cut off on my screen; not sure why, I have a HUGE one!  Or, they just didn’t show up at all.

I think we’d definitely use this as a supplement or for extra practice.  It would be a nice change of pace when we really need to drive home a point.

Update:  I spoke with the good folks with Interactive MATH and they let me know that the issue I was having was due to the resolution of my graphics card and can easily be fixed.  Great to know!  Also, I wanted to make it clear that while we are happy with what we are currently using for math, Interactive MATH can be used as a complete curriculum!
