A+ TutorSoft, Inc. offers an online, multi sensory, full-year math program (with CD program available also.) I requested the program available for 4th grade so that my oldest could *hopefully* do some review on her math skills with A+ TutorSoft MATH. I have mentioned before that math is my weakest area to teach, knowing I don’t do it well, I’m always looking for resources and helps for my kids! We received the 4th grade program to review, but 1st grade through Algebra are available from this company.
With this program, I created an online account for myself – the parent account, and then gave a screen name and password to my student. Each day when she was ready to work on math, she would log on and a screen similar to the one below would be ready and waiting for her.
If you notice all the topics along the lefthand side of the screen above, these are the topics from which the child will choose their lesson for the day. We simply started at the top (of the 4th grade list) and went down through many of the lessons. After listening (and watching) the lesson online, you click on “online worksheet” to do the problems for that day.
While I love the idea of having math online that the students can do independently, the main frustration that I have with this program is the visual appeal. I get very overwhelmed each time I click on this website. There are SO many words on each screen, so many choices. It is hard to know exactly where to start and where to go next. As an adult, I’m visually overstimulated with this website, and I feel like a lot of kids would be also.
My daughter did well with the lessons, they weren’t the most exciting to listen to, but generally speaking, we haven’t found a math program that is exciting! ha!! I would like for the worksheets to have more problems per worksheet, but you can go back and do more/extra if you so desire.
