Disclaimer: I received a FREE copy of this product through the HOMESCHOOL REVIEW CREW in exchange for my honest review. I was not required to write a positive review nor was I compensated in any other way.
One of my biggest homeschooling fears has been math. That’s always been my weakest subject, and then how our children were learning it in public school was so different than from what I learned in school. We have been working our way through the academic year trying different programs and curriculum, but still not completely sold on a particular product. We were optimistic about reviewing Math Galaxy, and feel like it has been a great addition to our homeschool math.
The ebooks we reviewed through Math Galaxy include the Whole Number Riddles, Fraction Riddles, Pre-Algebra Riddles, Algebra Riddles, and Google Slides Riddles bundles.
The apps we reviewed were 3rd Grade Math, 6th Grade Math, Pre-Algebra Fundamentals, Times Table Balloon Pop, and they sent us Preschool Math as a complimentary subscription.
I do need to confess that we’ve worked a little on each program, but haven’t completed nearly all of the content. Some of the bundles include individual ebooks that are more than one hundred pages each. I honestly had no idea when I was selecting ebooks to review how much content was coming with it! A downside for us was the amount of printing it took to turn them into worksheets for the children. The cost of the curriculum is so reasonable, for the amount of content you still end up way ahead of some other math curriculum purchases. For example, the Pre-Algebra Bundle contains seven individual ebooks! The total number of pages between the seven books is seven hundred and eighty-four! Both children that used the worksheets from the ebooks LOVE THEM! It’s been the easiest way for me to get them engaged in math besides the apps themselves.
The apps have been great, too! I think both of the grade-school children loved the labyrinth the most. You have to earn a certain number of points to be able to enter a labyrinth, so it was neat to see them eager to earn the points they needed in some of the other learning programs and be rewarded by the labyrinths.
Our 3rd-grader loved the Times Table Balloon Pop.
While some of the content on the Preschool App is too advanced for our 4 year old, she loves playing the games and tracing the numbers. While we didn’t need to contact customer service for any reason, the Math Galaxy creator personally emailed me about adding the preschool app to our collection and again when the app was updated with new content.
All-in-all, I can see Math Galaxy being a great fit for keeping math fun in our household.
