Unlock Math

Second generation Canadian homeschoolers with a passion for math, Alesia and Matthew Blackwood have been working hard to create an effective and easy-to-use math program for older students: Unlock Math.

Unlock Math

 

Available right now are Pre-Algebra, along with Algebra 1 & 2. More programs are in the works: Geometry, pre-calculus, and calculus are coming soon. Completely presented online using videos and interactive practice activities, the daily lessons are easy to follow and complete. The FAQs sections says that an average lesson takes about 30 minutes to finish.

Alesia is a certified math teacher whose love of math shines through in her videos as she teaches in a way that is fun, bubbly, and clear for students. Each lesson begins with a warm-up exercise to get minds focused on math, an instructional video, practice activities and review questions from past lessons, a challenging bonus question, and printable reference materials. Visit their demo lesson available on the website to see how the layout works.

Unlock Math first focuses on Pre-Algebra as a base for future lessons. The Pre-Algebra unit includes 16 units of lessons, covering whole numbers, fractions, decimals, coordinates, geometry, probability, percents, analyzing data and more. Everything is carefully broken down into easy to follow segments.

Teachers / Parents get access to a main dashboard which allows you to see how your child is doing and keep track of what they’ve completed or yet to finish.

Pricing options are either monthly or annually, with a discount for siblings.

    I’ve been interested in this, but can find no earthly reason why it costs this much. I could possibly justify it if I could pass it down. But just a subscription, insane.

    I am glad that you are interested and can appreciate you pricing concern. We are certainly priced higher than some of the other online curriculum. Our feature set is much more comprehensive however and I am sure that you would see results that reflect that. Our testing and assessment has an algebra engine running in the background that both generates the questions that we have programmed and grades them. We have several different types of questions, even ones that allow students to graph like they would with pen and paper. We did not want to rely on multiple choice testing because it is not as effective. This contributes to higher costs on our end. But if you are like me you’re not going to believe a faceless stranger on the internet. So what I would like to do is offer you a FREE month to try it out and see for yourself. On one condition. You give me feedback along the way to let me know your thoughts, how well it works for you and finally if you feel our pricing is justified. If you would like to take me up on this offer simply email matthew@unlockmath.com or Facebook message me at http://www.facebook.com/matthewblckwd I look forward to showing you just how wonderful our program is!

    Sincerely,
