The lessons are taught the traditional way, not to a "test". If you want to be Common Core aligned, then this is NOT for you. CTCMath is NOT aligned to Common Core!
Each one of the video tutorials is taught by the internationally acclaimed teacher, Pat Murray, who is renowned for teaching math concepts in a simple, easy-to-understand way (and in only a few minutes at a time). Using a multi-sensory approach having the combination of effective graphics and animation synchronized with the voice of a friendly teacher together with a practical assessment. This three-pronged attack makes learning so much easier and more effective. Even students who struggled with math are getting fantastic results! And ones who were doing OK before are now doing brilliantly.
Here's what you can expect.
Video tutorials and summaries which are clear, complete and easy to follow [like having your very own teacher]. This ensures your children understand something before they're asked to practise it.
Worksheets and interactive questions based explicitly on the video tutorials the children have just watched.
Weekly Revision Sets are a great tool to consolidate learning and help to identify any specific learning gaps.
Simple to set work. Superb for catching up and extension activities.
Extensive reports valuable in monitoring your child's progress.
If for any reason you are not delighted with CTCMath, with the benefits and gains it provides your family, then you can just let me know at any time over the next 12 months. I will personally organize for you a prompt and courteous full refund.
