When I saw the opportunity to review something from Alpha Omega Publications. I did a happy dance in the kitchen. This is the company that provides the curriculum for the Duggars. I figured if it worked for their family with 19 children then certainly it might work for our family.
I am mathmatically challenged. That is not a secret here in autismland. When the children get to higher level maths, they must move on to Michael teaching them. Logan really struggled with Algebra 1. I struggled with finding a program that worked for him. We settled on Teaching Textbooks which worked for him. Unfortunately it took us two years to finish it. Now, he’s a tad behind in math. I am not panicked. He can easily do it before graduation.
Now, higher level maths are not cheap. Really , higher level anythings are not cheap. When I looked through all their courses , of which there are a plethora, I thought it only wise to pick one for Logan. After discussing what he liked and disliked about Teaching Textbooks, we decided on Lifepac Geometry.
Logan liked that it was split up into many packs of books. He seemed to like being able to finish a complete book then take the test. It gave him a sense of accomplishment to go through the books. The directions were clear although he did need to have Michael explain a few things to him. While this could be good for an independent learner, someone should be around to clarify formulas and theorems . That’s a job for Super Dad here in autismland.
I liked the teacher’s manual. I was able to correct his work which streamlined the job for Michael. This made it more likely for math to get done before he left on work days. The tests made sure Logan knew the concepts before moving on to another one. If he failed the test for that pack then we went back and redid it. I liked having the ability to do that easily.
We certainly enjoyed it and will most likely continue with this program for Logan. He thoroughly enjoyed it so why mess with it if it’s working. Don’t forget that we are doing a giveaway for a free subject of your choice and a $50 Amazon card!
Price: $66.95 complete set including teacher’s manual
