Professor B Math (Schoolhouse Review Crew)
As part of the Schoolhouse Review Crew, I received online access to Professor B Math. It has three different levels:
~~LEVEL I - Pre K through 2nd grade and remediation of older learners. Introduction to Addition/Subtraction Facts - Counting to One Hundred - Lower Addition and Subtraction - Place Value - Fractional Parts and Older - Time - Money
~~LEVEL II - 3rd grade through 5th grade and remediation of older learners. Multiplication/Division Facts and Problem Solving - Introduction to Fractions - Fractional Equivalence - Addition and Subtraction Fractions.
~~LEVEL III - 6th grade through 8th grade and remediation of older learners. Multiplication/Division of Fractions - Decimals - Percents.
I have children of all different ages so we were able to use all three levels. There are 3 grades of math in each level. It will take approximately 10 months to complete each level depending on how long you work everyday. We usually work about 30 minutes a day on a lesson.
Professor B is a teaching program. Professor B has no sound. It tells you what to say, when to say it. The teacher (parent) reads it all out loud. The program is designed for the teacher (parent) to work along side the student. At the beginning of every lesson, you will go to the Table of Contents to get started, select what you want the student to study and go straight to that section. For example, there is no need to start with single digit subtraction if you are working on multiple digit subtraction.
Professor B is an online program. There is nothing to download or install on your computer. Any one level is $20 a month. Two levels at the same time is an additional $15. All three at the same time adds another $10 a month.
WHAT I THINK.......Overall, we enjoyed the program. I think it might be a little pricey for homeschool families to use, especially if you have multiple children. Although it might be a bit pricey, if you have a child or children struggling with something, I would highly recommend it. It is a fun math program and I know from experience, if something is fun, learning is fun!
