RightStart Math

RightStart is a thorough, comprehensive homeschooling math program that this mom would recommend to anyone...


We've been using RightStart Math homeschooling math curriculum for the last four years, starting with their Kindergarten program.

I had a difficult time selecting a homeschooling math program, and finally settled on RightStart because of how it groups numbers into 5's and uses teaching methods from Singapore. We've been using it ever since, and my daughter loves it! Even I am learning math concepts that I wasn't taught in school (it was more of a "this is the way it is" approach when I went to school), and the "why" of things.

I love, love, love the math card games booklet, and would recommend that for anyone who needs to help their child with additional math practice in a fun way. The math card games have everything from addition to telling time to division to fractions and everything in between.

RightStart is a thorough, comprehensive homeschooling math program that I would recommend to anyone. RightStart does lack a bit in the story problem arena, so I do supplement some story problems so that my daughter can apply what she's learned, but that is really my only issue with the program.

Great review, Amy! Thanks for sharing about RightStart. Blessings, Heather :)

Rightstart Math is our favorite homeschool math curriculum. As a math major in college, I was very particular about our math program. Rightstart Math is tactile with lots of manipulatives to help children "see" how the math works. The curriculum also teaches using 10s. Example 7+5=? We know 7+3=10, so then we know 3+2=5 so 7+5 = 7+3 (10) + 2 = 12. Students can easily start adding numbers in their head with this concept.

There are also LOTS of math games that help reinforce math concepts and logic without the pain of worksheets or reviewing flashcards. Example: Fraction war, which is larger 1/4 or 1/3. You can take it a step further and do two card fraction war, which is larger 1/4 + 1/4 or 1/8 + 3/4? Note: there are manipulatives that show the amounts of 1/4 and 1/8, so children can visually see the amounts and decide which is greater and learn how to add the amounts together.

Rightstart also teaches geometry concepts right away getting children acclimated to learning shapes and spatial concepts.

Before Rightstart Math we used a worsheet based homeschool math curriculum and were disappointed in the results. We found Rightstart Math to be engaging, interesting, and even fun.

Helpful review, Kris! Thanks for sharing what you like about RightStart Math and how it is working for your family. Blessings, Heather

RightStart Math Success

RightStart Math Success!

RightStart Math Success!

We have used the RightStart Math homeschool curriculum with our k-8th grade home school. I have found that all of the children that have been given instruction with the hands-on manipulative and abacus have been able to grasp nearly every mathematical concept as soon as it is introduced.

The cost of the beginning program is well worth it; the kids have used and re-used the tangrams, scales, clock and, best of all, the abacus. I even had to buy a second abacus since the kids all wanted their turns with it!

I have been very happy with the games & teaching resources that we have used. I recommend this to every homeschool mom who is seeking a living method of learning. Not a lot of workbook style learning, but that is how my children learn best.

Looking for a hands-on home school math curriculum? Home educator shares a Right Start Math reviews; learn why she chose it for her two children...

We have used Right Start Math curriculum for two children, both starting at age 4, level A. Level A is for young beginners. Level B includes all of level A info condensed into the first 20 chapters of level B, then continues on with the rest of level B. If you are going straight from Level A to B you can either use those first 20 chapters as a review or skip them if you do not feel they are needed. You can start with Level B with an older child.

We really like this home school math program as it teaches the kids the reasoning behind the operations. It is not "5-2=3 because I say so"; it is a system that really helps the child understand WHY 5-2=3. That basic understanding is so important, especially at an early age. I really like the games and the use of the abacus with this math program. Highly recommended!

Thanks for the home school math curriculum review; your thoughts are much appreciated! Blessings, Heather
