Many homeschool parents agonize over finding the perfect curriculum for teaching math to their children. Can you relate? At Alpha Omega Publications, we've got a solution that we think you're going to love! The LIFEPAC 3rd Grade Math Set was designed with you and your student in mind! Because building on a firm foundation is the key to success in math, LIFEPAC Math courses use mastery-based learning along with spiraling review to maintain student success. In this homeschool math program, student's concentrate on mastery of a single skill within a unit, and then move on to conquer new skills in new units. This system builds a strong foundation in basic math skills which paves the way for growing levels of expertise. In ten colorful worktexts, the LIFEPAC 3rd Grade Math Set presents instruction in the following skill areas: word numbers, addition with carrying, fact families, money shapes, subtraction with borrowing, fractions, coins, weight, roman numerals, graphs, temperature, word problems, times facts, and much more.
But there's so much more! Because we know how stressful teaching math can be, we have gone to great lengths to make sure that your child—and you—will love your LIFEPAC math experience! Student worktextsin this Alpha Omega curriculum 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 direct 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.
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
