Homeschool Freebie: Math Mammoth Percent

I like things that are free and here is a good one. Math Mammoth is offering the Math Mammoth Percent ebook for free, now through August 18, 2013. The book is designed for middle school students or students performing in math grade levels six through eight.

If you are unfamiliar with Math Mammoth, this is a good time to check them out. They do not sell their math worksheets and curriculum directly, you have to go through one of several vendors, like the Home School Buyers Co-op,  to purchase it. All of the products are available for download, some are available in print and CD format.

Hope you find this useful

Quarter Mile Math Makes Learning Math Facts Fun

We use Quarter Mile Math in our homeschool. I really like this math program. It is not a full math curriculum–instead it is a fun way for kids to practice their math facts.

The program is simple–Your child competes in a quarter mile race against four other opponents. During the first few rounds, kids race against a computer opponent who is destined to lose (although the child is not aware of this). After each race, one of the computer generated racers is replaced with the child’s last score. After five races–the child is racing against himself in quest for the best score.

The program is a lot more fun than flash cards and other math drills. Check out my full review here.  You can go out to the Quarter Mile Math website to download a free trial.

Give it a try and let me know what you think.
