Making Math Fun – A+ Interactive Math Review

Computer reinforcement is a fun way to make sure the skills and information are clicking. We love using computer games, lessons and videos to help with any subjects available. While I am not ready to let the computer be the teacher it is fun to teach and then let the kids use their new skills to play a game or do a lesson in a different way. One subject we tend to do this a lot is math. One new program we are using is the Math Mini-Courses from A+ Interactive Math.

Money has been a big subject in our home lately so I was happy to use and review the Money Math Mini-Course with Sunshine. We have used the money course a few times a week over the last few weeks and Sunshine seems to enjoy them.

There are many options in using the courses. On the dashboard screen, there are links to a few different options: Video Lessons with Interactive Review, Online Worksheet and Test Generator, PDF Lessons, Printable Worksheets and Tests and Reports.

We used the video lessons and interactive review the most. We created a few pdf worksheets as well and those were a fun way to assess the lessons. She enjoyed doing the videos and interactive lessons more than the worksheets so we used them most.

The program is broken down into multiple sections within the course. There is a video and interactive skill session for each subsection of the course as well as worksheets and tests. For the online video and interactive skills, once they have completed the section they can move on to the next lesson. If they need some more practice you can generate worksheets and tests for any of the lessons and can use the online version or a pdf.A+ Interactive Math - Math Mini-Courses - Modern Momma Musings

The lessons are quick, easy and fun. Sunshine was happy to have a computer lesson a few times a week in addition to her normal math program. It was a nice extra and review.

The only thing we had an issue with was her recording the answers. There is a cute, little frog that says “submit” on his belly. They have to click that frog to record their answers. She had a few times when she hit “next” instead of “submit” and it showed 0 out of 10 even though she had put the correct answers. The “submit” button is what records the answer so make sure your student is hitting that before moving on!

Once they have submitted their answers, their results are recorded for you to easily see their progress.

We are going to be finishing up the Money math mini-course and then moving onto the subtraction math mini-course. I am hopeful she will get as much out of the subtraction as she is with the money lessons.

    My student forgot the frog belly sometimes too! We enjoyed our Mini-Courses, and I thought they were a great supplement. As my kids get older, I find the computer programs can be beneficial.
