We Help Parents Create An Extraordinary Math Experience:
A homeschool math experience focused on thinking not calculation, discovery not memorization, self-reliance not dependence.
We founded Math Inspirations with the mission of completely changing the homeschool student experience with mathematics, with a focus on the student BECOMING a confident, independent thinker rather than just a DOER of math problems. We believe math should be a tool, a playing field, to train our students to think independent of an instructor, discover truth and communicate their reasoning in clear and original ways. To achieve this goal, we created the Discovery Method, which trains students to apply the scientific method in discovering, observing, testing and proving their own definitions and theorems. Instead of being told what the term quadrilateral means, students can use our Unit 5: Geometry Definitions Creation page to create and prove their own definition. Instead of being told how to multiply two numbers, students can use our Unit 2 Basic Operations to create their own method of multiplication. By repeating the Discovery Method through every definition and every k-8 theorem, students become more independent, more confident and more powerful thinkers. We believe this process of students using the Discovery Method to become great thinkers is best realized with the companionship of a trained mentor and that the flexibility and personalized nature of homeschooling provides the best environment for student success.
