Take the Guess Work out of Math with Math Essentials
Just say the word “Math” and both my children will groan. They dislike Math and all the work that comes with it. I have watched them struggle with concepts and I have struggled myself with the new ways they teach Math because they aren’t the way I was taught. Some of things just don’t make sense to them or myself and the further along in school, it will just get harder. I was beginning to stress about what to do in order to improve their understanding of Math when I decided that I would homeschool for the 2013-2014 school year. I set out in search of homeschooling textbooks and curriculum and came across Math Essentials.
Math Essentials seemed just what my daughter and son needed so I reached out to Richard Fisher, the math teacher who created Math Essentials, via email and shortly thereafter he emailed me back. He took the time (via phone) and found out where my children struggled and recommend the products he thought would work best for them. I couldn’t believe it, someone who actually wants to take the time to help someone out. That alone had me sold on trying Math Essentials. By the end of the week, I had received several products for both my son (14) and daughter (9).
Before I let you know my thoughts once I reviewed the books from Math Essentials, I want to share with you what Math Essentials is and how it works. Math Essentials is not another “study guide”. It is a step-by-step process that takes only 20 minutes a day. Even with busy schedules, I believe every family can put aside 20 minutes to help their child excel at math. These books were designed to help elementary, middle and high school students who were not prepared for Algebra get caught up in one year. The most popular Math Essentials Book is the No-Nonsense Algebra Book. This book comes with FREE Online Video Lessons, so you don’t have to worry about teaching them. Richard Fisher does that for you at no additional cost.
Seeing as my son has ADHD and loses focus very quickly I was excited to give this a try. I found that the 20 minute lesson is exactly that – 20 minutes and they are done. They don’t have time to lose focus because they have learned what they need to learn without overloading their brains. The next day they learn a new concept with review of the old and so forth thru the whole program. What I liked best is that the child can work alone thanks to the online video lessons with the Non-Nonsense Algebra Book and the DVDs included with the Mastering Essential Math Skills Books. My children liked working alone because they didn’t feel like I was hovering and gave them some autonomy over what they were doing.
While we have worked thru some of the books, I will be using these in the fall when we start homeschooling and look forward to ordering and using ALL the Math Essentials Books to help my children not only excel at Math but learn to love it (well at least like it).
