TOS Review - CTC Math - 12 Month Family Plan

CTCMath Review
My long time readers are already familiar with posts I have written in the past about how much Grace despises math, especially Algebra. In 9th grade she had so much trouble that she barely passed with a C. In light of those struggles we decided to have Personal Finance as her 10th grade math and take a step back from some of the higher math concepts. Fast forward to this summer - Grace has signed up to take Geometry through a hybrid program at a local Christian private school - and she knew she wanted to brush up on reviewing her Algebra 1 concepts. Next thing I know a review pops up from CTC Math with a 12 Month Family Plan. This really could not have come at a better time for us and we feel so blessed to have been chosen to review it.
Until I started reviewing on the Crew I had never even heard of CTC Math. Then every once in a while I would see testimonials from other Crew Members about how much they loved CTC, so I knew when the opportunity to review it came around it might be a good fit for us.
CTC Math is basically an online tutor for all math grades Kindergarten through Calculus and Trigonometry. With the 12 Month Family Plan for 2 or more students you will get unlimited access to all levels for just $118.00 a year. This is an amazing price for homeschoolers that is a 60 percent discount off the normal pricing. Of course if your student needs to only review or brush up on certain math topics then purchase a monthly plan of $11.97 for one student of $15.97 for 2 or more students.

CTC Math is completely online with worksheets you can print if needed. The website is incredibly easy to use and navigate. No learning curve required. The lessons are narrated and animated with a teacher that has a lovely Australian accent. The video lessons are short and to the point. Our algebra lessons that we have viewed so far have not been longer than 4-6 minutes each. All levels combined equal over 1300 video tutorials. Some aspects of the program that I really love as a parent are self-grading worksheets, weekly reports sent to my email, and keeping an overall average of the completed work. I also love that there are solutions to every single problem and that on each worksheet the student will find an answer bank. This lets the student know if they are on the right

We chose to review the Algebra section of this program as Grace is trying to furiously work her way through all the lessons this summer to get ready for her next higher math class in the fall for 11th grade. This means Grace worked on CTC Math so far 3-5 times a week during the review period. She has completed Part 1 and half of Part 2 in the Algebra section. Each Part has 3-6 topics. The Topic sections then have anywhere from 5-13 lessons per topic to complete. Does she still get frustrated? Yes, but she always will because math is really not her strong subject. Did she like CTC Math? Yes. Will she continue to use it? Absolutely. Once we finish the algebra 1 portion of the program, I plan on Grace utilizing the Geometry sections when she has problems or questions from her homework.

A teenager's perspective: Even though I don't like math, I really like this program. I think it is one of the best math programs I have used and we have definitely used many over the years. Great for reviewing topics you didn't learn well the first go around and very easy to use. I would like to see a little more description in the videos with all possibilities of the problems that are presented to solve on the worksheets.

CTC Math is one of the best products I have every reviewed. Definitely in the top five and it is a perfect fit for my family. Be sure to check out the reviews from other Crew Members to get their perspectives on CTC Math.
