Math Essentials: Math Refresher for Adults {Review}

Pin It

Math is one of those subjects that I've always had a love/hate relationship with. Let's face it, mathematics is an aspect of our everyday lives, whether we like it or not. That doesn't mean it always comes easy for everyone. When I was a teenager, I had some struggles with some of the more advanced areas in algebra. This left me with a not so fuzzy feeling about the subject in general. Back in my college days, I actually started to grow more of a liking for math, perhaps it was the thoroughness of the professors that I had. Honestly, it's hard to really say. My detest for math has definitely diminished quite a bit since my childhood and teen years. With that being said, it has still been quite a while since I've tackled the math areas that had once given me so much trouble as a child.

Since a day will come when I'll be teaching my son all there is to know about math, I knew that I would be needing a little refresher here and there.  Recently, I've been using Math Refresher for Adults from Math Essentials in order to help me brush up on some of the mathematical skills that were once troublesome for me.

Bible Study Guide For All Ages: Beginner Student Pages & Beginner Time Line {Review}

Pin It

As a Christian mother, discipleship is very important to me. In addition to traditional subjects such as language arts, math, and science, I always make sure to add in a substantial amount of Bible study time to our homeschool routine. Sometimes we work on one major story from the Bible and make an entire unit study out of it. Other times, we focus on memorizing scripture verses. Recently, I've been putting together my son's lessons using the Beginner (3-K) program from Bible Study Guide For All Ages.
