Go Math! Academy Review

by Teresa B

Theresa shares her insights into this really cool math program that might help your child with their skills. We were compensated to write this review, however all opinions listed are my own.

There is no denying that children will test higher in math through greater understanding.

Go Math! Academy has a unique series of videos that promotes a student success. Each math video is targeted to a specific age and level as well as math lesson. Math topics should be covered in small steps spread over time. One facet of concept is taught and practiced before the next concept is introduced. This approach gives student the time to develop a deeper understanding of math concepts and how to apply them. Go Math! Academy helps teach the way your child learns best. Step by step.

With each new skill building on the skills already learned, the easy to navigate Go Math! Academy website solidifies success in math. Whether you are looking for review, increased understanding of specific material or new skills, Go Math! Academy will give your child more confidence, more willingness to learn and more success. Go Math! Academy has math help videos for grade kindergarten through sixth grade.

In my house, math rules. Math rules because my husband and I were both math majors in college and our careers revolved around math. I love to teach my children math. However, not every child learns the same concepts in the same manner. My son gobbles up math and I literally can not feed it to him fast enough. My daughter, on the other hand, is a slow learner and very visual. Sometimes it helps to get a different take on a challenging math topic that she may not understand. That’s where Go Math! Academy math videos can help me. They complement our classroom learning by providing a different presentation that helps my daughter grasp something new that I may not be able to get her to understand.

 

 

The math videos featuring Ed Burger, a nationally renowned K-12 educator, author and President of Southwestern University. He is funny, engaging and thorough. My children really likes his style of teaching because he makes it less about math and more about fun learning. The video lessons are built around math concepts that schools use and are aligned with the goals of the Common Core State Standards. This tool is for all students, including home schooled students.

Go Math! Academy is more than just homework help for your children. Whether your child needs to review a math quizzes, refresh a previously learned math concept, preview upcoming math concepts or simply needs extra enrichment, Go Math! Academy’s complete math help video library is there to assist.

Mathematics is not difficult! Go Math! Academy proves it!

I disagree with this review. This curriculum is confusing and hurts higher grades when suddenly immersed in its concept. Parental assistance is difficult as it is nothing like our generation was taught. They do not explain it the way we know and it confuses the child. This has been one tough year for my fourth grader with hours per night of frustration and tears. Big thumbs down!

I don’t understand a book that requires you to get another book.

This program is, quite frankly, crap. I have a kid that needs special help in reading but is quite good with arithmetic and problems. If his test in MATH were on actual calculations, he would do quite well, but instead he fails because he has reading issues which are separate from his mathematical abilities. 100% of the tests are word problems so he’s pretty much out of luck.

Plus, many of these problems on the test are worded in a crazy fashion so even with a 4th grade reading level I do not know how we would do it. His twin brother has no issues with reading but does not do a whole lot better. I have a PhD in engineering and 14 years of schooling after 12th grade and I still have to think about the wording of some of these problems. This is crazy.

Kids do not need cryptic embedding of math inside of essays. I have not read the literature but I would like a few minutes alone with whomever thought this was a good idea.
