Ten Marks Math
Mood:  a-ok
Topic: Homeschool Product Review


Have you ever wished you could hire a personal math tutor for your kids? One that will thoroughly explain how to work a problem, give your child hints when they have trouble, have plenty of practice problems prepared and reward your child when they do good? Do you think that would never happen? Is a personal tutor too expensive and out of your budget? Well, I have found something that is almost as good - Ten Marks Math!

Ten Marks Math is a great online math program. They tout themselves as being a supplemental math program, but you could almost use it as your main math curriculum.

Here's how it works. When you sign your student up for this program you choose a grade level for them to work on. After that, your student will be assigned a series of "worksheets", four per week, that cover one of the many concepts that Ten Marks Math feels that a student working in that grade level needs to learn.  A "worksheet" is actually a series of 10 questions that cover that concept.

Now, here's where the really neat stuff comes into play. Each question comes with four multiple choice answers. If your child thinks he knows the answer to a question, he just clicks on the answer he thinks is correct. If he needs help, he can click the "ask for hints" button. You get three hints for each question - yes I said three! Each hint gives you a little more help and gets you a little closer to the answer. If your son or daughter still needs assistance, they can watch a video where a teacher explains, step by step, how to work out that problem. After the 10 questions are completed, your child can see which ones he got wrong and is given a chance to correct his wrong answers.


If, he is still having problems, then the computer automatically reassigns that worksheet.  After several worksheets are passed, then your child is awarded a fun logic type game to play whenever he wants. Careful! the games are addicting! Make sure your child is not neglecting what his worksheets and only playing the games. There's even a section where you can assign your own awards to your child. If your student thinks that he already has a good handle on a topic, he can skip right to the test. There are also unlimited practice questions that your child can work with that aren't counted toward the evaluation that you, the parent, receive when you log into the special parent section.

Yes, there is a special parent section. In this section you are told how your child is doing on his assignments. What is being covered that week, what was just covered, and what is next up. Now, worksheets are automatically assigned to your child, but, really, you have complete control. If you don't like the order that Ten Marks is covering things, rearrange it. If your child has never seen a particular concept, assign the worksheets for that concept from a grade lower. You can rearrange what's coming up next with just a click of a button. And, your child will never know it (sneaky isn't it?). They'll just keep working through their worksheets and earning their rewards and, better still, they'll just keep learning! You can even tell the program that you are going on vacation or will be taking a break from homeschooling for a little while and it will hold all of your worksheets.

Sound too good to be true? Just go to their website and try it out for a limited amount of times free by clicking here or on any one of the hi-lighted links above. I think you'll really like it. After you have tried it out for free, the cost per month is only $10 with a money back guarantee. You can't beat that! As usual, many other members of the TOS Homeschool Crew reviewed Ten Marks Math and you can find out what they had to say by clicking here. Happy Home Educating!

As a member of the TOS Homeschool Crew I was given a free limited time subscription to Ten Marks Math in order to try out and review on my blog.
