We are so excited to be able to use the 12-month Family membership from CTCMath. We school all year long so it’s nice to be able to add additional students if they need some additional help. Keep reading below to see what CTCMath is all about.
What is CTCMath
CTCMath is a full math curriculum that covers all the math topics your child will need all the way threw high school. The program is an online subscription that has lesson videos and review problems. I reviewed the Family membership which lets you set up all your children in whatever grade they are in. You can give assignments to each child and due dates or you can select what lessons you want them to work on.
As a parent or teacher, you can see all your children/students and see what progress they are making. The picture below shows what the teacher screen looks like where you can see the child’s progress and what lessons are coming up. It is also where you can assign tasks.
When your child logs in with his name he can work on the tasks you assigned or you can help them select a specific lesson or unit you want them to work on. Each lesson has videos your child can watch and then there are questions for them to work on after they watch the video. The questions are all answered online but you can also print out questions if you would like. Once the question is answered, the correct answer is shown if they got it wrong. The student then clicks on a button to go to the next question.
You can also have your child take a diagnostic test on the subject. The picture below shows one of the diagnostic tests for second grade.
Lesson results are easy to see as shown in the picture below.
What did we think
I was really impressed with CTCMath video lessons and my kids liked them also. I thought the explanation and the graphics used to explain the lesson were really good. I wasn’t planning on using CTCMath with my high school daughter for her Algebra but after watching some of the lessons I decided I would use them for her also. There are so many different topics so you can easily find any topic your child might be struggling with to review.
I didn’t really like the option of giving assignments. I preferred just selecting a lesson for my sons and letting them work on that instead of assigning him work. It just works better for us that way. I feel like I know what math topics my son needs to work on so I can just have him select those lessons to work on. Maybe if your child is self-motivated you could assign tasks and just let them work on the assigned lessons. Whatever works best for you if you are looking for a comprehensive online math curriculum then I would recommend CTCMath.
