Free Homeschool Math Curriculum

Share

Math seems to be one of the subjects that most homeschool moms dread, with science running a close second. I actually love math, though I didn’t love teaching it for the longest time. It wasn’t until I realized that math isn't some secret code that needs to be deciphered that I began to enjoy math with my kids.

It's actually very natural for most children to learn math concepts, and if you graduated high school, you can absolutely teach math.

I spent hundreds of dollars trying to find the “right” math curriculum. I was terrified that I wasn’t going to teach it correctly and my children were going to be so behind where they should be.

I needn’t have worried so much.

Do you know what all of that curriculum I bought had in common? It all taught the same things, in pretty much the same order. The only difference was in the method of delivery. Some were very worksheet oriented, while others were very hands-on, and still others used a combination of both. Some used a spiral method and some used a mastery approach.

Regardless of what method is used to teach it, math is math.

You can spend LOTS of money trying to find the best math for your family. But you don’t have to. #homeschoolmath #homeschooling Click To Tweet

You don't need an expensive curriculum to teach math. There is no “right” way to teach it, but there is a way that works best for you and your children. Trust me when I say, you can spend LOTS of money before you figure out what that is.

But you don’t have to.

I’ve put together a list of some of the best free math programs available. All were completely free at the time of writing. If you find one that is no longer free, please let me know.

  1. Wow thank you sooo much !! This was a huge help and answer to prayer as I was looking for something for my Math curriculum and had no idea where to look… well you gave SEVERAL options!! #LifeSaver

  2. Holy Guacamole! What a find. Thank you for posting this free content. As a special education teacher at the high school level it is difficult to find curriculum for my student’s ability levels. This will help greatly.

    Keep up the great work.

    Thank you for your time.

    -Shane

  3. Im noticing that the IXL learning links only give you 10 problems per day, then ask for membership. You cant access anything else past 10 problems in one day. Are the 10 problems per day what is free?

  4. im just about to start my daughter in a couple weeks, this is the BEST site ive found. thanks a million! im a lot less stressed about finding enough free printables as a single mother this is just the best!

  5. Commenting once again, now that I’ve used this curriculum. I just wanted to comment again that this information you have here is truly spectacular. Words cannot describe the headache you have saved me for having to piece together and create all new curriculum. My fiancee is thinking of homeschool our kids, when we have them after we get married, and this webpage will be an amazing resource. Thank you for all that you do.

    I hope and pray you continue to do amazing work.

    May God bless you and your family.

    • Thank you, Shane, for your words of encouragement. I’m happy that you were able to find something useful that saved you time and effort!

  6. Do you have any free online financial literacy courses. My daughter is special needs and going into 12th grade. I’ve given up trying to teach prealgebra to her after trying for 3 years.

  7. OMG!!! Thank you so much! My Daughter was asked to leave her school due to behavioral and health problems that I have. Its actually pretty sad my daughter has bin in that school since 1st grade. Now shes in 5th grade, 3 months before graduating (with all the kids shes bin going to school with for years) and they asked me to sign her out. So I did, but i didn’t want her to start a whole new school for 3 months (seems more harmful then helpful). So I decided to home school her for the last 3 months of this year. Sorry to ramble but my point is, Thank you so much. This is a life saver for some one who starts homeschooling after there child has already bin in the school system for a portion of the year. This makes it so easy to figure out where she left off in her other school. Its literally a life saver. All I can say is Thank You So Much.

  8. Wow!!! You have really gave us something that is truly wonderful! I have been homeschooling my 7 and 9 year old boys and math seems to be a struggle. I know what needs to be taught but there are days I just need help and with what you have supplied here has made me relax more because I don’t have to search around for the topics I need to cover. It is all there step by step so they can master each and every bit of math. Thank you so much!!!
