How UnLock Math Works

UnLock Math is the only homeschool math curriculum that combines the following in a multi-sensory interactive approach that unlocks students’ hidden math potential and gives your child their best opportunity for math success.

  • Unparalleled instruction through the engaging teaching videos of Alesia Blackwood breaking math into bite-size chunks that your child will find easy to understand and apply. Studies have shown that students learn & retain information better if they SEE the teacher working through a problem vs voice over type lessons.
  • Learning that continues during assignments. We believe that learning should continue beyond the video instruction.
  • Unlimited practice that allows your child to master the lesson regardless of their starting point.
  • Continual review that keeps new skills fresh, locking concepts into their long term memory.
  • Fully worked solutions after each question giving your child immediate feedback. This is invaluable in helping your child discover where they “went wrong” in questions they answered incorrectly.
  • Live chat support is a safety net for your child so that nothing is left to chance.
  • 30 day no risk money back guarantee.

Experience for yourself the dramatic difference that UnLock Math continues to make in families around the world!

Here’s what Alyson from North Carolina has to say “We found UnLock Math last year and it has changed our lives! The step by step approach and constant review are excellent! The teacher does a great job presenting the material. There is immediate feedback so my daughter knows if she got a problem right or wrong- and she will rework a problem until she gets it right! Her attitude towards math has completely changed!

Allow me to walk you briefly through our program so that you can see for yourself why we’ve been rated the #1 digital math curriculum by the readers of “Practical Homeschooling” magazine for the past 4 years!

How it works

Warm Up

Each day your child will begin with a short 5 question Warm Up covering material from the day before. This does two things. First, it’s a quick check to let us know that they remember what they learned. Second, it helps their brain to switch gears into “math mode” getting them ready to learn. 


Then it’s time for the engaging video lesson taught by Alesia Blackwood, utilizing her unique style of breaking math concepts into bite-size chunks that are easier to understand & apply! Studies have shown that students learn & remember better if they SEE the teacher work through a problem vs voice over type lessons.


Next, we’ll take them through 10 Practice Problem questions covering JUST what they learned in the video. After each question they view a complete solution so that they can compare their work to ours in case they missed a step, etc. If, after going through all 10 questions, they are ready to move ahead, GREAT. If not, they may open a NEW set of Practice Problems and we’ll record their best effort for their grade. They can do this as many times as needed, we’ll give them NEW questions each time! This allows students to master the lesson regardless of their starting point.


After Practice Problems they move on to 10 Stay Sharp questions that cover material from previous lessons so that concepts they’ve learned are touched on throughout the year. This keeps new skills fresh, locking them into long term memory.


We include a Challenge Yourself question that is a student favourite! It’s a chance to earn “extra credit” and stretch their math skills for bonus points. Great for teaching them “outside the box” thinking when it comes to math.


Each lesson also comes with Reference Notes that may be printed or viewed online. Or print out all the Reference Notes at the beginning of the course for their very own UnLock Math testbook.

Quiz, Review, and Test!

Every two or three days students complete a 5 question Quiz after the daily lesson, making sure they don’t need to review a concept before moving on. Units conclude with a Unit Review and a Unit Test and we also give students a Mid-term and a Final Review and Test.

Auto Grading & Detailed Reporting

You have access to Grades and more from your convenient Parent Dashboard. You may view each attempted assignment, when it was completed, how long was spent on it, and each score. You’ll also receive a weekly email of your child’s progress.
