I received a 45 day subscription to Mathletics to try out. I am always thrilled to try out anything math related especially things like Mathletics that are supplemental to our current curriculum that does not require ME!

I tried it out my youngest Ann who is in 5th grade. She was sold right from the start. When you sign up you get a parent account along with a student account which is handy. It helps you to know how your student is doing. When the student signs up they start by creating an avatar that hey can costomize any way they like.

As the student works his way through various math topics they get points for mastery. They can spend these points on things like extras to use to update the avatar.

Mathletics is an online subscription math program. The cost is $59 a year for one child. One of the things that makes Mathletics different from other online math programs is the competition factor. The students are not only learning online and playing fun math games, but they are also able to rank themselves with others on the Mathletics site. Homeschooling sometimes makes it hard for the student who thrives on competition, so something like Mathletics fills that need.

Mathletics was a real win here in this house.

Happy Homeschooling!
