Pre-Algebra can be a stressful subject for homeschoolers to learn, and stressful for home educators to teach. When I was asked to review Mr.D Math Pre-Algebra my daughter and I were excited to do this! Let me just say it was one of the best programs we have ever reviewed. Read more about this awesome program below!
I was given a free subscription and compensation for my time to Mr.D Math in exchange for my honest opinion. All opinions are 100% my own. I was not required to post a positive review.
Mr.D Math is unlike any other online math program we have used in our home. My daughter is in 8th grade and has struggled with learning some of the concepts in Pre-Algebra, but when I showed her the ability to attend live online classes and watch instruction in real time she got very excited. This is the Pre-Algebra program we have been looking for.
What we thought about Mr.D Pre-Algebra:
The first class my daughter attended with Mr.D (Dennis DiNoia) was great. He was very knowledgeable and yet a cool person to learn from, he has a wonderful energy my daughter enjoyed. He was great at asking questions of the students, and acknowledging each person in the class when they answered. My daughter said “this is how all math should be taught”. I was excited to see her learn new concepts without feeling defeated.
She left the live online class asking when the next one would be.
When you log onto your dashboard your entire course is listed and in the order of the lessons you are to complete. The videos are great quality, and have plenty of notes for your students write down in each lesson. There is also a great notes section for each lesson that you can review as needed or print to add to your child’s math notebook.
Your student will watch that lessons on video, download the activity sheets, and take the quizzes and tests all in the student dashboard. The weekly interactive live class is outstanding, it is a safe place to learn and ask Mr.D any questions they may have about the lesson.
If you miss a class or get stuck on something Mr. D Math offers Extra Help Sessions that your child can attend twice a week, these are optional for your students. It is so nice to know that if your child is stuck on something they will get their questions not only answered, but fully explained to them visually in an online classroom.
How Mr.D Math works:
- Log into your dashboard
- Click on your lesson
- Attend the live classes for your class during the scheduled time
- Print any activity sheets provided for the lesson
- Watch the videos
- Take the quiz online
- There are unit tests at the end of each unit and semester
In my opinion this is how all math should be taught. The student’s can have their questions answered without feeling dumb or embarrassed. Mr.D was a great teacher and my daughter really enjoyed his class. We will be using Mr.D Math for Algebra 1 next year. You can learn more about Mr.D Math here!
