~ I have to say that I really enjoy this series. Since this year I am taking on writing a book and time is limited to do this. I like that my Dear Husband Mark can sit the girls down, put in the DVD and Math class begins. Then if the girls have any questions he is there to help them while I work with our son Daniel or work on writing. After the lesson the girls then get to work on the worksheets we have previously printed out for them to do that day. They can even go back and watch the video again if needed. I like that , as we don’t have to constantly repeat ourselves. We are there to be involved to answer questions and if we don’t know the answers , we have an expert teacher who does know the answers. I can write in what were going to do. Insert the DVD, point , click and were learning !
I think the girls like it for the fact that someone else is teaching them. As you can see Hope is paying close attention to everything that Jason is teaching. They use Dad’s Laptop for doing their lessons daily.
We like Mastering Math with Jason ! Hope is very happy to be learning in a new way and not just from books and Mom. Each lesson takes approximately 30 mins and holds the girls attention. We feel that it is important that these lessons get the point across in a fairly short amount of time , so that the girls are not feeling its boring and taking to long.
On average so far there are 10 practice questions per page , 3 pages per lesson. Math has become so much better for us since using Mastering Math 5 Fractions. The girls are actually asking us for their worksheets and happy to do Math !
Thank you Jason Gibson and ScienceandMath.com for making Fractions more fun for us !
