Publisher Description:

Giving your student a strong math foundation is one of the most critical tasks you will face as a homeschooling parent. Finding the right curriculum to help you is one of the most difficult parts of the job. Well, you've come to the right place! The LIFEPAC 2nd Grade Math Set from Alpha Omega Publications was designed with you in mind! LIFEPAC Math courses use mastery-based learning along with spiraling review to promote student success. In this homeschool math program, students concentrate on mastery of a single skill, and then move on to learn new skills. This method builds a strong foundation in basic math skills which paves the way for ever-increasing levels of proficiency! In ten full-color, engaging worktexts, The LIFEPAC 2nd Grade Math Set presents instruction in the following skill areas: numbers to 999, operation symbols, place value, fact families, addition with carrying to 100s place, subtraction with borrowing, ordinal numbers, directions, converting coins, fractions, area and volume, graphs, and more.

What are some of the additional features of this popular Alpha Omega curriculum? Student worktexts include daily math instruction and review as well as ample opportunity for assessment of proficiency. In order to encourage individualized instruction, we have included a teacher's guide designed to help you guide your student's learning according to his specific interests and needs. The teacher's guide includes detailed teaching notes, a complete answer key and lots of ideas for additional activities designed to reinforce important math concepts.

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

My 8-yr old son is award-focused He is a sequential learner He loves the opportunity to complete the worktexts at his own pace and earn a small prize at the end of each completed work-text He remains interested and inspired to keep getting "the next book" I like the opportunity for review without too many problems I love that he can do the work on his own for the most part without me sitting by his side I can use the work-text easily when I need to have him busy while I do other thingsThis program suits us so well that my 5-yo son wants his own set! I am ordering the K program (in a friend's order) tomorrowThanks!Cathy
