Math can be quite the 4 letter word but, with the right curriculum, it becomes an amazing tool that unlocks the world around us. Using the best math curriculum for your individual children is important because each child learns differently.
When I was a child, I enjoyed math only as much as I enjoyed the way I was learning it. The wrong teacher and the wrong method might leave me struggling. Once in elementary school and once in high school I actually failed math under one teacher, but made straight A’s when the same material was presented by a different teacher with a different method. This happened with fractions and Algebra II. When the second teacher explained the concepts to me I remember thinking, “Well, that’s easy! Why didn’t Teacher A explain it that way?” Teacher A was likely using a curriculum or method that simply didn’t resonate with me.
Fortunately, finding the best homeschool math curriculum for your child doesn’t have to be a difficult process. However, sometimes we get overwhelmed with all of the choices that are available.
