When life is messy and chaotic, it’s hard to mesh with someone else’s schedule and show up online at a particular time each week. Miss a class or two, and, bam! You’re now behind and rushing to catch up.
Self-paced instruction with the support of a live expert is the solution. That’s what UnLock Math provides!
UnLock Math merges the best of personal teaching with the flexibility of self-paced recorded lessons. Log in and work on math whenever it suits your timetable. There are no set class times. All lessons are recorded and available 24-7. But you get the invaluable benefit of access to Alesia Blackwood, a gifted math teacher with over 20 years of experience. Have questions about the math lessons? Just reach out using the live chat function, and Mrs. Blackwood or another qualified teacher will answer you!
UnLock Math is a complete curriculum for six courses:
Math Foundations - grade 6
Pre-Algebra - grades 7/8
Algebra I - grade 9
Geometry - grade 10
Algebra II - grade 11
Pre-Calculus/Trig - grade 12
The lessons are taught by Mrs. Blackwood, not an impersonal computer program. Our students make a personal connection with Alesia that’s impossible to achieve with a robotic, AI interface.
“My teen is on her 3rd year with this program, and it has made a world of difference!! The daily frustration level went way down when we switched to Unlock Math. My favorite part: LIVE teachers available to chat one on one with the student anytime!! You have access to the teachers to help explain the problems and work through the confusion. That feature alone is priceless! It's like a built in tutor. We use it often and they are so kind and helpful to make sure the student understands the how and why.” —Stacy Baugh, TX
“Hey, look at me … “
When you want your child’s attention, how do you know you have it? One big clue is a face, staring back at you! From earliest infancy, the human eye is drawn to faces. We are wired to connect with humans through face-to-face interaction.
That’s why so many teens love UnLock Math where the lessons are taught by Alesia Blackwood, not an impersonal computer program with a disembodied voice. Our students make a personal connection with Alesia that’s impossible to achieve with a robotic, AI (artificial intelligence) interface. She’s warm, engaging, encouraging, and uses just the right amount of humor.
Amber is a homeschool mom and UnLock Math user with 2 very auditory/visual students who “tend to lose focus with their lessons if there is no face to make a connection with.” She goes on to say, “UnLock Math is different from any other course that we have taken because there is a live teacher up in front of the class. I noticed that this made a huge difference for my kids who had trouble focusing on text-only or audio-only lessons.”
And while the lessons are all recorded so you can work at your own pace, UnLock Math students get live support from actual teachers—not a bot—available via chat. So you can maintain that human-to-human contact through the entire process of learning algebra, geometry, or math foundations.
Rodica, a parent in Florida, says, “My teens were hesitant to ask questions through the chat, but I've encouraged them to do so when they don't understand as I have no time at all to help. Lately, they have been chatting more with Brandon (I think), and they said how helpful and kind he is and he answers right away, just like having a tutor in our house!!! Anyway, I have no words to tell you how grateful I am for your program!!! I did not think it is possible that my kids will successfully go through algebra and understand it. You made it possible.”
Make math easier for yourself this year without sacrificing the personal aspect of teacher-to-student instruction. Enroll with UnLock Math and take charge of your children's math education!
How UnLock Math Works
Each day your child will begin with a short 5 question Warm Up covering material from the day before. This does two things. First, it's a quick check to let us know that they remember what they learned. Second, it helps their brain to switch gears into "math mode" getting them ready to learn.
Then it's time for the engaging video lesson taught by Alesia Blackwood, utilizing her unique style of breaking math concepts into bite-size chunks that are easier to understand & apply! Studies have shown that students learn & remember better if they SEE the teacher work through a problem vs voice over type lessons.
Next, we'll take them through 10 Practice Problem questions covering JUST what they learned in the video. After each question they view a complete solution so that they can compare their work to ours in case they missed a step, etc. If, after going through all 10 questions, they are ready to move ahead, GREAT. If not, they may open a NEW set of Practice Problems and we'll record their best effort for their grade. They can do this as many times as needed, we'll give them NEW questions each time! This allows students to master the lesson regardless of their starting point.
After Practice Problems they move on to 10 Stay Sharp questions that cover material from previous lessons so that concepts the've learned are touched on throughout the year. This keeps new skills fresh, locking in concepts to their long term memory.
We include a Challenge Yourself question that is a student favourite! It's a chance to earn "extra credit" and stretch their math skills for bonus points. Great for teaching them "outside the box" thinking when it comes to math.
Each lesson also come with Reference Notes that may be printed or viewed online.
Quiz, Review, and Test
Every two or three days students complete a 5 question Quiz after the daily lesson, making sure they don't need to review a concept before moving on. Unit conclude with a Unit Review and a Unit Test and we also give you a Mid-term and a Final Review and Test.
Auto Grading & Detailed Reporting
You have access to Grades and more from your convenient Parent Dashboard. You may view each attempted assignment, when it was completed, how long was spent on it, and each score. You'll also receive a weekly email of your child's progress.
Online Chat With Certified Teachers
A safety net for your child! We have teachers standing by so that when it comes to your child’s math education NOTHING is left to chance!

"UnLock Math has really taken the stress and frustration out of math instruction for my son! The program has taken difficult concepts and broken them down into easy to understand chunks. Our family looks forward to continuing our relationship with UnLock Math as our other 3 children reach Pre-Algebra level!" - Karlene McCoy, parent
"I have not found another math program that comes close to the explanation from a real teacher teaching the lessons. The graphics are above and beyond, and the presentation is always fun. Let me just say this, I have never had a math teacher as fun as Alesia Blackwood, I wish I had. She is enthusiastic and fun to watch. Your children will not be bored, but intrigued. She is bubbly, and teaches the lessons in a very fun way where they will remember what is being taught." - Alana Satterly, Homeschool Blogger
"UnLock Math has been a great find for our family. I reviewed it once with a program that was given to us for the purposes of review, but the next year, I purchased it. That’s how much I love it. It’s not like I just loved it because it was given to me. I actually love it enough to pay for it. All you fellow homeschool bloggers out there know what I’m talking about!
I really do hope you look into this program and see if it can bless your family. It has blessed ours." - Nicole Cole, Homeschool Blogger
