Disclosure: I received a CTC Math Membership for free and was compensated for my time. All my opinions about this product are honest and I was not required to post a positive review.[social_warfare]
I never would have thought of using an online math curriculum for my 6 year old…
I’m more of a worksheets and manipulatives kind of a gal. But when we were gifted the opportunity to try out a CTC Math membership, I was beyond curious to see how my daughter would respond.
One of the main reasons why I created my website was because I was fascinated by learning how children learn and how to create materials that could tap into that process and facilitate the best retention of knowledge. So I at least wanted the opportunity to observe how my daughter would respond to learning via a computer so I could analyze the results. Yes, I got a little nerdy with it.
Honestly, I thought we wouldn’t like using the CTC Math online math program for my daughter’s homeschool math curriculum. I thought using the computer would be too hard for her. I thought the Australian accent of the teachings would confuse her. I thought she would get bored after a few lessons.
I was totally wrong.
Instead, she gained a ridiculous amount of confidence through learning to use the keyboard and mouse and how to navigate the site. She never even commented on the Australian accent. And she never, ever got bored. In fact, she always asked for more.
