  • Excellent maths website... from kindergarten through to "A level."

    Hi all.

    This is the website that my son is using for his maths at school. It's absolutely superb, and goes right up to A level standard.

    http://www.mymaths.co.uk/

    It is used by schools in the UK, and is available to anyone... the only problem is the cost (over four hundred pounds a year.)

    However... if anyone is on a home schooling network, then could the cost be shared amongst a group of ten or twenty families, making it more affordable? If any of you are home schooling, and have a church, or homeschooling network, this might be a useful resource.

    Just to let you know, it really helps NON maths folks like me to keep track of where my son is up to... they have "booster" packs to kick the kids up a grade, plenty of revision, games, etc. The home work is done online, automatically graded, and you can keep track of progress very easily.

    If I'd had this when I was at school I'm pretty sure I'd have done far better in maths!

    Here's some example lessons for you to peruse:

    http://www.mymaths.co.uk/samples/modellingGraphs.html

    (The first is foundation level GCSE, the other AS level.)
    Please could everyone pray for Mieke and Charles.

    Oh, I like the graphical clarity of those lessons! It reminds me of a program available called "Teaching Textbooks", which is a book/CD program that can be used on the computer. It uses a lot of pictures, and talks the student through the lessons.

    Thanks for the links...I'm not part of a homeschool group, so I don't think I could use it, but it does look really good! Would it be difficult for students in the US, do you think? Would there be too much difference in terminology? I didn't see anything that looked like a problem in the model lessons you linked to, but I didn't explore the whole site.

      The only thing I can think of is that Americans usage is different when it comes to millions and billions. But I don't think that would be a problem.

      I wish I had enough money to get an account set up for this website's parents to use...

      Teaching Textbooks? Where can you get that, and what level does it get up to?

        It goes to pre-calculus. I can't post the link, but if you google "Teaching Textbooks" they have their own website. They have some sample lessons that actually talk the student through a few problems, with a couple of video clips on the website, too. My 11yo loved it...I just wasn't sure about making the investment, but I think I'm reconsidering it...I think it's around $150 per grade level. I might look for one on eBay

          Just curious...how do we differ from you on millions and billions?

            Oh my... did I not put the link through? Sorry!

            Hummm... it's historically complicated, and most businesses now use the US formulation. Some die hards still use UK figures, but they specify now if so.

            This link on Wikipedia will help. Look to the sub heading on numbers... it's more complicated than I'd realised!
