CTC Math Review: The Answer for Kids Struggling With Math
This is a sponsored post from CTC Math. All opinions are honest and my own.
Some of my kids struggle with math. Actually, I struggle with math! Which makes it incredible hard as a homeschooling mom to teach math. In fact, it has always been my nemesis, and that one thing that makes me feel like maybe I’m not cut out for homeschooling!
Thankfully, there are many resources available to homeschoolers that will help overcome those nasty subjects that just seem impossible to teach. Not being skilled in math does not mean that you can’t homeschool. Not at all!
Math Brings Tears!
Math has been the point in our day which brings the most stress, agony, and tears. Hands down. Sometimes I’m the one crying and sometimes it’s my kids! 🙂 I’m not ashamed to admit it!
I’ve often found myself wondering what to do for those kids of mine who really, truly, are not gifted in arithmetic. I’ve shopped around for resources, and have been on the look out for something that would help my kids learn, would keep there attention, and would assist me in teaching them the subject I was not so adept at. I’ve wasted a lot of time, money, and effort and still have not come up with the right answer for our family.
CTC Math Was the Answer
Enter CTC Math.
Thankfully, CTC Math is exactly what I was looking for. It has a simple and straight forward user interface. One that both my kids and I could use without feeling like we needed to take a college course in order to understand. (Doesn’t that seem to be the case, nowadays?!)
After only about five minutes of setting up the dashboard and getting three of my kids registered, we were ready to get started. That’s a win in my book! We homeschool moms don’t have a lot of extra time!
My 1st grader sat down and got right to it. She was in love from the beginning, and she happens to be one of the kids that doesn’t love math. She kept commenting at how easy it was, but best of all, I giggled as she would look up from over the lap top and say, “Mommy, I never knew that!” It gave her confidence to see that math was, in fact, something she could handle and it didn’t have to be overwhelming.
It’s Easy to Use
The intuitive platform records and stores the student’s progress so I was able to check back over her work when she claimed she finished and entire unit! I was shocked! But she wasn’t kidding! And the data was all there to prove it!
It couldn’t have been easier. I was very impressed by the clear, and organized format that CTC Math uses. I found myself easily navigating the program without wondering what was going on.
It Can Be Used on an iPad or iPhone
One positive feature of CTC Math is that can be run on an iPad or an iPhone (in addition to a standard computer, of course.) I found this to be an excellent benefit. Instead of handing over my phone for silly games, now my kids can use it for educational benefit. That’s a win, in my opinion!
It Can Be Used for K-12
It’s available for K-12 which is also a blessing for me as a homeschooling mom. I have always feared teaching upper level math since we’ve already established that I’m not strong suited in academics! Knowing there is a solid resource available to help my high schoolers makes me breathe a little easier!
Best of all, it can be used as a full curriculum and not just a supplementation.
We’re Not Discouraged With Math Anymore
CTC Math has taken something very discouraging for me as a homeschooling mother, and turned it into a highlight of our day. Interestingly, my daughter asked if she could do another lesson! Another lesson?? Yes, please! That’s awesome! I’m excited about anything that will get my kids enthusiastic about something as daunting as math!
But the coolest thing is that it’s contagious! Now my other kids are curious and rather than have to obligate them to sit down and do CTC Math, they want to!
A Bonus Feature
Though I haven’t had to use the customer service department, as busy homeschooling mom, I really appreciate the fact that CTC Math has a dedicated phone line for customer service. That is a HUGE plus to me. In this day in age where you can scarcely talk to a human being, I find a phone number with direct access to help to be extremely beneficial. I don’t have time to waste, waiting for an email to come several days after I’ve asked a question.
I Recommend CTC Math
I highly recommend CTC Math. It has definitely made the difference between frustration and mastery in my homeschool classroom. This is a high quality product that is well worth the money invested!
