Category Description for Consumer Math LIFEPAC (AOP):

Practical application of math in the areas of family finances, occupations, business, and transportation. Helps students to solve real-life problems in budgeting, banking, and taxes. Boxed set includes ten LIFEPAC workbooks, review test and a solution key (which includes answers to the Lifepac questions), self-test, and test.

Category Description for LIFEPAC Mathematics:

A complete, Christian math curriculum that emphasizes skill mastery. Each Complete Boxed Set contains ten LIFEPACs and a teacher guide. The only exception is the Grade K Boxed Set, which contains two student books and a teacher guide. LIFEPACs only (no teacher guide) are also available for use with multiple students. Review and self-tests are built into the curriculum. LIFEPACs are thin, consumable student work texts. They are colorful in the elementary grades, but become less colorful as the grade level increases. Each set of ten LIFEPACs provides a year-long curriculum.

The spiral-bound teacher's guide contains a curriculum overview, teacher's notes, answer keys, and suggested guidelines (for scheduling, grading, study methods, etc). Daily lesson plans are not included. Teacher guides for grades K-1 provide more detailed teaching instruction than guides for grades 2-12. Why? Because the LIFEPAC curriculum facilitates the independent study approach. Starting in second grade, written instruction is included in each LIFEPAC so that the lessons are largely self-instructional. The teacher's responsibilities include introducing each LIFEPAC, setting a schedule, completing teacher checks, being available for student questions, administering and grading tests, and developing additional learning activities.

You might be wondering, "What's the difference between this curriculum and Horizons Math?" After all, both programs come from the same publisher and follow a similar scope and sequence up to the sixth grade. The main difference, in my opinion, is that Horizons is not self-instructional (written instruction is not included in workbooks). Another difference is that LIFEPACs offer standard practice problems whereas Horizons offers a greater variety of problems (mazes, decoding, etc) as well as standard drills, but LIFEPACs provide many more problems per workbook page. ~ Anh

I chose this box set for my son's 12th grade math. He has already taken Algebra I, II and Geometry and is not interested in pre-calculus.

My teenager completed the required maths of Algebra 1 & 2 and Geometry. We wanted him to learn skills he would actually use in life. He plans on pursuing Nursing so will not be needing higher math than he has currently completed at the high school level.

Need solid real-life math
Kimberly T on Aug 14, 2018
I've heard very good reviews about Lifepac and my high schooler likes worktext style curriculum. We chose this for a simpler curriculum choice for her Personal Finance credit.

I have heard from friends this is an excellent curriculum and want my children to have solid, thorough, practical math skills before leaving home.
Shana B on Aug 11, 2017
It includes both the student workbooks and the solutions key. I also think my student will do well with separate booklets to complete one at a time.

My daughter wants to be a photographer so she doesn't need higher math. Lifepacs are easy to use and taught to the child which means little of no help needed from me as I am going back to work.
Jamie T on Jul 29, 2016
After Algebra and Geometry, I'm hoping to use this course to teach my high school some real-life math applications since she is not inclined to higher mathematics and this seems more appropriately for her future.
