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

How does this compare with other programs you've used? Are there warm-ups, tests, visuals, activities including ones that are physical?
A shopper on Nov 28, 2018
BEST ANSWER: There aren't any warm ups, and no tests at this level. The teacher's manual does include ideas for hands on manipulatives. I would recommend buying the teacher's guide if you use this program. My son found this program frustrating because many of the pages had 20 plus problems on them, and it overwhelmed him. I personally don't think that I will use this program with my subsequent children.

My son absolutely loves this math curriculum! The workbooks are engaging and bright without being too distracting. The concepts build in such a way that learning is natural for him and doesn't feel like work. I definitely plan on using this math program again when my other children reach the age.
