Homeschool Math Programs
There are many choices in math curriculum for homeschoolers. We find that it's difficult to choose between all of the available programs, so we offer a variety. We've also found that those who are really "into" math believe that even "comprehensive" math curriculum for homeschoolers should be supplemented. By seeing math used in different ways, children learn to approach problems from several angles. We suggest the Singapore and Saxon math curriculum for homeschoolers as a starting point. From there you may supplement them with the many additional math programs we offer. For more information please follow this link: A Variety of Math Curriculum for Homeschoolers.
Many parents are very pleased with the Singapore Math® curriculum for homeschoolers. In 1995 and 1999, the International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement conducted tests to measure the strengths and weaknesses of various countries' educational programs. These tests, known as TIMMS tests (Trends in Mathematics and Science Study or Third International Mathematics and Science Study tests), showed Singaporean students as first in math for both tests. We at Sonlight Curriculum agree with those that believe that part of the reason for their great performance is the "total schooling experience." While TIMMS may not prove that the curriculum alone is extraordinary, it certainly cannot be poor if so many of their students are scoring so well. You can find the Singapore Math® curriculum for homeschoolers listed with our other math programs. Or, for more information including comments from parents already using it, please follow this link: Comments on the Singapore Math® Curriculum for Homeschoolers.
