Homeschool Curriculum: Math

Includes affilate links.

I still don't understand how there can be a religious math and a secular math, but here we are. Instead you are going to find secular math curriculum that anyone can use.

How do you choose a math curriculum? Here are some things to look for:

– secular / religious view – digital or print – independent learning or guided learning – common core or non-common core

Secular Curriculum

Only discusses religious beliefs from an anthropological perspective. It is not faith-neutral (this becomes important especially when discussing science and history curricula).

Teaching Textbooks

Complete online math courses for roughly grades 3 and up. The placement test is given to set the initial level.

What I look for in Math Curriculum

For me, math is one of those subjects where I’m not really looking for fun learning, but for them to get the best non-common core education that I can get them. I also look for independent lessons.
