Here is a preview of lesson 1, so you can see how the lessons are given, and here are the corresponding worksheets.
So far, we are about half-way though the DVD lessons. The first thing that I always do is print out the worksheets for the lesson we are doing. There are several worksheets per lesson. At first, I was having Issac do all worksheets immediately after we watched the lesson, but I quickly learned that was too much for him. So, what we do now is watch the lesson, then he does 1 worksheet immediately after, plus one worksheet each day after until he has completed every worksheet for each lesson. Then we move onto the next lesson. This gives him enough time to learn each concept before moving on. If we need to review it a little more, we just watch the lesson again as many times as we want. Occasionally, I did help Issac work the problems on the worksheet, but generally after working the first sheet’s problems, he was good to go. Issac actually asked to watch the DVD lessons and work his Math every day. I can’t really remember a time before that this has happened. The great thing about this Math course is that you can watch the lessons anywhere you have a DVD player. We watched ours on the TV with our Blu-Ray player, but you could watch these on the go as long as you have something that will play the DVD.
I am really impressed with ScienceandMath.com. The DVDs are very affordable at $15.99 each, and with so many lesson included. This is something that you could easily use for more than one child, which makes the product even more cost effective if you have more than one child in your family. Having Issac ask me to do his work is like a double-bonus. I plan on purchasing more of the 5th grade Math DVDs once we are close to finishing this one. You will also find ScienceandMath.com on Facebook!
