Sometimes the very name of something gives you a good idea of what to expect from the product and A+ Interactive Math is one of those titles. They offer both online and CD versions of their interactive math products for all levels of math. A+ also offers workbooks and worksheets. They offer both a school and homeschool version. They can provide a complete math curriculum for all students. Their program can also offer remediation for students who are behind in their math skills or have math gaps. Their website offers plenty of support to help you choose the best product for your situation as well as provide needed support for using their product.
Our family reviewed the Adaptive Placement Test and Individualized Lesson Plan. This product tests the student at their current grade level in several areas that are covered during that level. After the student has completed the test it will let you know whether the child is currently working on grade level or not. If they are not at grade level then the student is directed to complete a lesson with an interactive portion and then to complete the worksheet for that topic. When the child has completed all the topics they can then retake the test to see if they are now up to grade level. You can adjust the students grade level at any time during your 3-month membership.
The interactive lessons start with a video lesson that demonstrates the concept being taught. This is followed by several questions completed in an interactive method with immediate feedback. The worksheets are online with multiple choice questions. Both the test topics themselves and the lesson topics are all broken down into easy to manage and understand pieces so that you can clearly see weak areas and not feel overwhelmed even in areas that need a lot of work.
When logging in as a parent it is easy to check out your child’s progress in general and review each test, lesson, and worksheet to find out exactly which questions they missed if you want to make the review more focused.
Using It At Our House
I knew that my children had gaps and I was excited to have a chance to try this product out. We got off to a slow start because I realized I needed to sit down with my children and walk them through the process I wanted them to follow. Also, they tried to get away with only completed one lesson each day. All three of us it on different PC computers all using Windows 8.1.
The plan we have come up with is to have them take the tests one at a time. For any test that they failed to reach grade level they will then work through the interactive lesson and then complete the online worksheet for that level. If they score will they will move onto the next lesson until they have completed all the lessons and worksheets for that test topic. They can then retake the test and move on to the next test until they have reached grade level in all subject areas. When working on lessons and worksheets they need to work for at least 30 minutes each day.
Thoughts on A+ Interactive Math
I knew my children had gaps and this has been a big help in seeing those gaps as well has having a good way to work at filling them in. Because they have several gaps and we got off to a slow start I am sure I will be purchasing additional time for our family. But I think for most families who have only a few gaps you could easily move through the whole process during the 3-month membership period. The parent dashboard was easy to manage and made it easy for a working mom to keep up on what was happening.
I can’t speak for other homeschool families but in our house I have been searching for the math program that best fit for my children and myself and as a result this has created gaps when switching from one thing to another. I feel by using the Adaptive Placement Test and Individualized Lesson Plan from A+ Interactive Math I can finally level out my children’s math learning and move forward.
Both children liked how the lesson weren’t too long and they were interesting and really presented the information in a way that was easy for them to completed. I also learned that it was okay to push them a bit and to make them complete more than one lesson and worksheet set each day.
