Are you looking for an alternative to cumbersome math textbooks? Do you already have the LIFEPAC teacher's guide? Alpha Omega Publications has the perfect homeschool curriculum—the LIFEPAC 6th Grade Math 10-Unit Set! This comprehensive set of ten structured, easy-to-understand worktexts without a teacher's guide provides a complete overview of essential math concepts and includes applicable practice problems. Each of the ten units offers helpful, entertaining illustrations and step-by-step lessons to improve your student's math skills! Topics in this Alpha Omega curriculum include fractions, decimals, percents, dividing mixed numbers, metric measures, ratio and proportion, graphs, integers, statistics, square roots, area and perimeter, and variables.
But wait—there's even more! Each consumable in the LIFEPAC 6th Grade Math 10-Unit Set will build your child's confidence in his math skills while providing a strong foundation in elementary arithmetic concepts necessary for increasing levels of difficulty. Your child will also feel a regular sense of accomplishment each time he completes one of the ultra-thin, easy-to-use worktexts—usually in just three to four weeks! And if that's not enough, each LIFEPAC includes consistent reviews, self-tests, and one teacher-administered test to reinforce and solidify comprehension. Best of all, these same tests and reviews enable you to track your child's progress as he masters sixth grade math!
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
