The PROBLEM with math is that the way it is normally taught! Conventional math lessons are boring, hard to understand, seem irrelevant to real life, and are no fun.
My books are like a reset button, kind of like comfort therapy.
My math books are not designed to prepare your child to take a standardized test. Instead they bring math concepts down to earth.
My books make math practical, fun, creative, useful, and easy to apply to real life problems and projects.
What I do is have my children learn basic math with Fun-Schooling Books, and real life projects involving MONEY, time, calculating, and measurements. They become very confident and unintimidated by math. They don’t see it as a subject, but as a super valuable skill for getting things done.
If I were you and wanted to raise kids to be able to confidently use real math in real life… Work through the Thinking Tree Books, then add the math you need for testing, credits or grade level learning.
I would suggest Khan Academy, Life of Fred, Math-U-See, Prodigy…
My kids focus on learning the math that is relevant to their career goals.
