ALEKS, my personal favorite, uses artificial intelligence software to routinely assess what a student actually knows, reinforce the areas that they need extra help in, and moves them through a pie chart of skills with interactive lessons and explanations that students view along the way. Periodically, new assessments are given and the software individually redesigns the material that your student needs to learn to tailor a math course that is unique to each student. Rather than having chapter tests, students work to complete the entire pie chart. The course is complete when the student has 100% mastery, so the foundation of skills is very strong when a student completes the course. In any math program, students should also practice self-checking and use a Critique System for evaluating their personal problem areas, but with regular evaluations such as these and solid online math programs, students can significantly change the way they feel about math, as well as their skill in math. Online math is an excellent option worth considering, certainly for home-schoolers, but also for any students who want to brush up on skills over the summer.
Fortunately, this is not the case with home schooling. When your child has finished his work, reward him by letting him do something he enjoys. If you need to keep your child occupied while you are working with one of your other children, have certain educational things your child can be doing such as building with Legos, educational computer games, reading a book, or puzzles -- whatever your child enjoys.
With adaptive learning programs, your child will not just play one level and complete the program. The games offer a comprehensive learning tool that works with kids from kindergarten through third grade. With hundreds of levels, different ways to play and constant interaction, the online games never lose their meaning. The same children can play the games but in different ways, since the programs are tailored toward the learning styles of each child. This is what makes adaptive learning an essential tool in classrooms as well. For 3rd grade math, you can expect a balance of fractions, graphs, money and multiplication that challenge the mind with each lesson. If you are unsure about investing in a particular program, try a program with a free trial. By implementing these valuable learning aids, you can help your child make the most of third grade.
