I received a free membership and compensation from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt for this review. All opinions are my own.
Now that my son has started first grade he is required, as part of his homework, to practice his math each night. We can use any method we like. We have been using Go Math! Academy and he loves it.
“Go Math! Academy™ is an online, at-home learning program based on Houghton Mifflin Harcourt’s enormously successful GO Math!™ textbook curriculum, used by over 7 million kids worldwide. Go Math! Academy offers thousands of math practice problems, hundreds or help videos, and plenty of games and rewards to make learning fun!”-Go Math! Academy website
Grades K- 6 are available now.
Right off it lets your child choose if they want a space them or an underwater theme. My son thought that was very fun and chose the underwater theme. If he changes his mind he can go in and change to space as well.
The best thing about Go Math! Academy is that my son thinks it is fun. He doesn’t feel like he is doing homework, but more like he is playing fun games. As he is answering the questions he can click for help and have the lesson and what he is supposed to do explained to him. That is such a great feature.
He has been having a great time playing and learning on Go Math! Academy. Another thing he really likes is that he can earn awards. He is always so proud when he earns awards so this is a great incentive for him. Go Math! Academy is such a help for me since I no longer have to nag him to do his math homework. Instead he gets excited when I tell him it is time to play Go Math! Academy.
You can have up to 5 profiles per account. So you only need one account for all the kids! It is great that each child can learn and grow on their own level through their own profile.
