TOS Review - A+ Interactive Math Mini-Courses

Math Mini-Courses {A+ Interactive Math Review}
- + X + -

Out of all of the subjects, math is the one my youngest struggles with the most, so I was excited to get a chance to review the Math Mini-Courses from A+ Interactive Math.




What is A+ Interactive Math Mini-Courses?

These Mini-Courses are short online video tutorials that concentrate on specific areas of math and introduce concepts that span from very basic early elementary level to the more advanced level. They are intended to close learning gaps a child may have in particular areas of math.

The child logs onto the A+ site and watches a short video lesson. He or she then has the option of working through questions online or having them printed off from a PDF file. The tests are presented in the same format. Along the way, the parent/teacher is able to view reports to gauge the student's progress. There are also certificates to print along the way.

I was given a full year of access to my choice of two of these 20 Math Mini-Courses availalbe that includes:
  • Math Mini-Courses {A+ Interactive Math Review} Counting and Identifying Numbers (1st-3rd) - 15 lessons
  • Math Mini-Courses {A+ Interactive Math Review} Place Value and Number Combinations (1st-3rd) - 15 lessons

How Did We Use It?

We chose to use the Elementary Geometry and the Elementary and Middle School Multiplication Mini-Courses:

Math Mini-Courses {A+ Interactive Math Review}


I was asked to use at least one of the two programs regularly with a student. We ended up completing the geometry course and most of the multiplication one.






What Did We Think?

I like the idea of presenting blips of information concentrated on learning one particular area of math where the student is struggling. It makes it not so overwhelming. I also appreciated that there was the option to print the PDF worksheets and tests as well as each of the lessons are also in PDF form if you want to view as more of a textbook or print the whole thing out for use. I liked the immediate feedback as the child would interact with the online work. I think the only thing I would change is that I wish the program automatically recognized when my child had completed a video lesson, but it was not overly cumbersome to manually check each lesson upon completion just sometimes confusing as to what lesson we actually finished.
