Right, after my 10 yr old trialled out Conquer Maths yesterday (there are lots of free-to-access areas of the site for people to trial it out before buying), I’ve decided to splash out on a year’s membership for her.
She hasn’t been doing any formal Math for a year or so and I was looking for a good Maths educational site for her that would retain her interest (Math isn’t her strong point) and help her learn some concepts. In the past, we have bought a Mathletics subscription, which she enjoyed a lot for a couple of months initially, but it got old and she stopped.
Well I heard good things about Conquer Maths here. It’s well known in schooling and Home Ed circles as an excellent program to teach and reinforce Math concepts for children as young as 3 to children aged 16. It has been certified as a program that will teach up to GCSE Math exam level.
At first I was concerned that because of how it’s been marketed as something that fits in with the English school math curriculum, it would be too dry in content for my daughter.
But she did quite a lot of it in an hour and enjoyed it. So I decided to buy the one year subscription for her. Which works out really cheaply with the Home Educators discount (40% off the normal price).
She’s doing really well on it. I like the fact it covers all aspects of the English school math curriculum, so we always know what is expected of her at whatever age.
Conquer Maths is probably one of the best online Math programmes I’ve ever seen. And I’m sorry but Mathletics doesn’t come close to what this does, imo.
