I just wanted to write a little life update for April 2021. You can read my last life update here. I know it’s such a cliché to say, but how is it already April?! I can’t believe we’re more than a year into Covid! And 2021 is whizzing by!
Mr. D Math is well know for his extensive online math curricula and classes. But did you know he offers other awesome courses like Flamenco Dance and Guitar, American Sign Language and Youtuber Training? Cool, right?
I thought I would write a little life update. It’s been more than two years since I wrote a post like this! Sometimes it’s nice to write just for the sake of writing. And I want to have a record of where we are now and of the crazy year we went through.

Working homeschool mom, I know how overwhelming it can be to choose a math curriculum for your homeschool. That's why I'd like to tell you about the online math curriculum we've been using for years – CTCMath.com.
As far as math curriculums go, it has loads of great features that solve lots of the math issues we've had and I know a lot of homeschooling families have. Here are a few of the features (from the many) that we really like:
Questions are adaptive which means the interactive questions change in difficulty depending on the student's ability. They use a smart algorithm that tracks the student's progress and delivers questions based on their unique needs. The student doesn’t even know this is happening, helping them to build confidence and master concepts!
Concepts are delivered through 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.
And then for us parents, CTCMath has:
Extensive reports which are valuable in monitoring your child's progress and spotting any gaps.
And they offer a 12-month money-back guarantee if this curriculum is not for you and your family. CTCMath will provide a full refund, no questions asked.
But I think the most important things is a whole lot LESS stress when it's math time for both parents AND kids. You get to outsource math with confidence and your kids get a fantastic tailor-made programme that makes learning and mastering math enjoyable and positive.
