Learning Math with A+ Tutorsoft, Inc: Review

 
Photobucket

Happy Thursday!  I have another program that I would like to share with you.  This time it's in Math!  I can hear the moans and groans now, even from my 4th grade daughter, haha.  I can honestly say that with this program, the moans and groans ceased.  What math program is this?  A+ Tutorsoft, Inc.  We utilized the A+ Interactive Math. (Online Homeschool Edition)

Before I discuss what the Online Homeschool Edition entails, I would like to talk about the A+ Tutorsoft, Inc. site first.  When you enter the main site, you are greeted with a wide variety of resources and info.  At the top right of the website, you can choose:
  • Free 1 Month (Online Homeschool)
  • Free Download
It is right below that section you can sign up to use A+ Tutorsoft, Inc.  After signing up, a parent and  student will receive a login. When a child logs into their dashboard and uses the resources, it keeps track of their records. 

Below the dashboard are these tabs:
  • Homepage
  • Order Now (Online Homeschool Edition, CD Software, Books, Specials, Activate your order)
  • Software (CD Software, Online Homeschool Edition, etc.)
  • Books (Full Curriculum Books, Workbbooks, sheets, exams Pack, Table of Contents, Buy Now)
  • Free Stuff (Worksheets, Exams, Multimedia Lessons of the Day, etc.)
  • Testimonials
  • Brochure
  • Support
  • About Us
  • FAQ
  • Conferences
  • Contact
Below the A+ Tutorsoft, Inc. website tabs are flash advertisements of their products.  For example, deals for Math CD software, homeschool online edition, etc.  Below the flash advertisements are other deals.  "Right now you can save 50% through the end of March. Please use this code: SPOFFER50." You can also view a CD and Online Demo and register for a free MATH placement test.

My fourth grader has honestly been anxious to use the online program.  This is huge because she hates math.  I am so thankful for this program and look forward to using it in the days ahead and with my younger daughters as well. 
 
How did we use the program? Some days I would have her just sit and do the audio interactive.  The next day she would go over the worksheets she learned and then take an online exam.  Some days I would mix it up and have her to the printable worksheets and exams as well.  For her to ask if she can go online to use the program is such a joy.  I honestly wish I had something like this during my elementary years as I hated math. The fourth grade program covers:

1. Number Sense Review
2. Additions
3. Subtractions
4. Multiplications
5. Division
6. Decimals
7. Fractions and Fractions Operations
8. Number Conversions and Mixed Fractions Operations
9. The Number Line and Number Comparisons
10. Algebra
11. Geometry
12. Time and Money
13. Measurements and Conversions
14. Probability
15. Displaying Data Using Graphs
16. Word Problems and Problem Solving
 
Have you ever used A+ Tutorsoft, Inc. with your child?  How about the Online Homeschool Edition?  I would love to hear how it worked with your child.  If you have never used it, would you consider it for your homeschooler?
