“The format of the course is very easy to follow. Each lesson comes up on a screen showing all lesson components. Students start with a warm-up activity with five problems to solve based on previously learned material. The video lesson is next. Alesia, the instructor for this course, presents video lessons standing in front of an animated screen rather than a whiteboard. She teaches one problem at a time teaching, demonstrating with numerous examples in a lively and easy-to-understand fashion.”
“Unlock Math is pricier than some other options, but it does an excellent job. It’s very professionally designed with great graphics. Alesia’s use of the large digital screen to teach is much nicer than the whiteboard approach used by many courses. The lessons are very clearly laid out and easy to follow, and they include everything you need—plenty of practice problems, cumulative review, the ability to review any lesson, tests, and complete solutions along with the answers.”
Unlock Math is a perennial favorite in this Annual poll of homeschool families by Practical Homeschooling magazine, the largest circulation homeschool magazine in the world. Every year, subscribers and others are asked to choose their favorites from among the nominated options.
First nominated in 2017, our third year offering online math courses, we were ecstatic to learn that we won 1st place for math while traveling for a homeschool curriculum fair in Alaska. It is an absolute honor that our amazing customers have continued to vote us the #1 homeschool math curriculum each year since!
UnLock Math has consistently placed above other popular math curricula like Teaching Textbooks, CTC Math, Beast Academy, Nicole the Math Lady, Thinkwell, Derek Owens, and Mr. D Math for the past six years.
“Unlock Math has great appeal as a homeschooling tool. The site is easy to navigate and easy to get started. There are sections for parents to check the accuracy and progress of your child’s work. Unlock Math presents its lessons in a visual manner, with a flow chart for each component of the lesson. There is a warm-up, a video lesson, practice problems, stay-sharp exercises, and a Challenge Yourself assessment for each lesson. An entire course includes around 16 units, with each unit containing around seven lessons with quizzes throughout each unit. There are unit reviews and a unit test for each of the units within a course. The printable materials are a huge bonus for pencil-paper practice. Unlock Math is a game-changer for advanced math courses for homeschooling. I would highly recommend UnLock Math to any secondary students!” – Academics’ Choice Awards Reviewer
“This has been such a huge help to my family this past year! When everything moved online, school especially, my son needed extra supplemental help for his math classes. One of his favorite parts is that it’s taught by a real person, a math teacher named Mrs. Blackwood, who has been teaching for 20 years, not a robot who he can’t connect with. Also, it is personalized to move according to his speed and provides interactive learning. He has had a hard time with online school, but having Unlock Math to support him has made all the difference in his attitude towards math and learning in general.” – Academics’ Choice Awards Reviewer
“Unlock Math is easily accessible for educators, homeschooling parents, and students in grades 6 – 12. The lessons are self-pacing, so they work at the speed of the user to tailor to their individual needs. Unlock Math provides flexible learning, as users can log in as needed and work on their own time with 24/7 accessibility to all of the lessons. The math lessons are taught by a real math teacher, Alesia Blackwood, who has been teaching for two decades. Students can ask questions by using the live chat option that will be answered directly by either Mrs. Blackwood or other professional teachers.” – Academics’ Choice Awards Reviewer
