CTC Math is an online math curriculum for every age. They cover kindergarten math through trigonometry, and everything in between. We have had the opportunity to review their 12 Month Family Plan for homeschoolers.
CTC Math Review
I had Oscar (sophomore) and Julia (6th grade) work through the program on different levels.
How it works
For each course or grade there are different streams to coose from. For example purposes, I’ll tell you about the 6th grade course.
The available streams are:
- Number, Patterns and Algebra
- Space and Geometry
- Statistics and Probability
Each stream then has it’s own topics to be completed as you can see below.
Once you choose a topic, you are then directed to the lessons page where you have the option of taking either a standard test or comprehensive test that can establish you student’s knowledge of that topic.
The lessons page is where the learning begins. Upon choosing a lesson to start, you’re taken to the video for that lesson. After you watch the video, there are graded questions to answer. With each lesson is a printable lesson summary (AWESOME!) which serves as notes for the lesson.
The ins and outs of the online math course are easy enough to navigate once you get the hang of it.
Upon completion of a topic, your student is awarded a certificate (my kids’ favorite part!) that you can print and proudly display on the fridge or schoolroom wall. Platinum, Gold, Silver and Bronze are all certificate options.
Let me start by saying that I appreciate this area very much!

If you select a specific student, you can see their progress with great detail.
What we thought
As a homeschooling parent I was impressed with the program. I like that I can track their progress so easily and the speed at which they are moving through the lessons.
During the review period, I had both kids replace their normal math curriculum with CTC Math. There was the normal mumble and grumble that comes with trying something new (my children are creatures of habit) but once we got into the swing of things, they were quite happy with the change. CTC gives the kids the power to choose what they work on and powerful tools to get that work completed successfully.
With the Family Membership ($118.80) you get a full years access to all lessons and topic for every grade level. As a large family we can definitely appreciate the great value in this program.
