The idea of homeschooling math can instill fear in even the most seasoned homeschooler. Many of us may not have been strong in math during our schooling years, or just aren’t sure we can teach it to someone else. The good news is that there are homeschool math curriculum options out there to suit a variety of needs! With options such as hands-on, textbook, and video options, there is something for every style of teacher and student!

When choosing homeschool math curriculum it is important to consider both the learning style of the student, as well as what you, the teacher are capable of handling. Some homeschool parents to be more hands on and the bulk of the teaching themselves, while others are searching for something that is going to do ALL the teaching so they don’t have to!

Heidi at Starts At Eight
Having already graduated one homeschool student and two more still in the nest, we have had a long math journey (one I am sure will continue for the coming years). I am not even sure I can count the number of math curricula we have tried! Our oldest struggled a lot once she hit Algebra. We found that creating a solid math foundation is key to working out the kinks when it comes to higher lever math. Our primary math choices have been Singapore Math in the elementary ages, and Teaching Textbooks after that, but those aren’t for everyone! Here are some other options to consider as well!
