MathScore Supplemental Math Curriculum for Homeschoolers
Are you already using a full curriculum (such as Saxon Math),
and want to faciliate
math practice to reinforce concepts? If so, you've come to the right place.
MathScore will save you a lot of time because it is paperless,
instantly grades student work and provides appropriate solution explanations.
After each math lesson, have your child log into MathScore and find a topic
that matches the material you just taught. MathScore will generate an
unlimited supply of math problems and adapt the difficulty based on
performance. Once your child achieves a rating of 100, mastery has been
achieved, and it is time to move onto the next concept.
MathScore fully supports 2nd grade through Algebra I, and is often used
by 1st graders. Unlike some math programs that provide a pretest and force
the student to work on certain concepts, MathScore allows your children
to work on any topic at your discretion, making it ideal as a supplement.

The importance of mastering math facts before tackling difficult math concepts
cannot be overstated. This importance was highlighted not only by the NCTM's
Curriculum Focal Points (September 12, 2006), but also by the more recent
National Math Panel (March 13, 2008). Even if it takes your child months
to master the math facts, the time you invest in these skills will be worth
