If you held a gathering for homeschoolers, the talk would quickly turn to curriculum choices. Homeschooling is big business these days and there are programs and textbooks to fit a gajillion different styles and personalities. Homeschooling parents find what fits for each subject, and then often modify the programs to match each child’s needs.
But, bring up the subject of math with this same group and you’ll probably get a few hems and haws before you get an answer. More homeschoolers struggle with teaching math than any other subjects combined! This isn’t to say that homeschoolers are not math-minded. Far from it. There are just so many different approaches to teach math and often, what works for one child in the family is a dismal failure for the others.
So, today I have found a blog that is all about math for homeschoolers! Aren’t you excited? A little?
Homeschool Math Blog is just what it says. All about math. Maria Miller is a former math teacher turned homeschooler and author. She is the creator of Mammoth Math. Maria recognized the need for math support for homeschoolers so she created the math blog.
If you have trouble teaching math, or if your child is struggling in the school setting and needs extra help, this site is a must.
