In the weeks before school started, we had the opportunity to try out Revolution Math, an innovative program that was designed for students in 2nd thru 5th grade to develop their math skills and overall love of learning.
Our son Luke, who just started 4th grade this month, tested the program for us. It was easy to get started. I went to the Math Revolution website and signed up for a trial. I selected Luke’s grade level and shortly after, we were shipped a Revolution Math Kit. We were able to pick our class time, we chose Tuesday evenings at 8 pm.
The Revolution Math Kit contained a book of graph paper, several dice, a bag of tiles, a pencil and four masks to coordinate with the story-based curriculum and Common Core aligned math games. For the first 3 classes Luke was the only student in his class, but in his fourth class there were 3 other students.
Revolution Math keeps their classes small with a maximum of 4 students. The small class size allows students to participate and build their confidence under the instruction of a dedicated teacher. The classes are 60 minutes long.
It was easy to download the classroom module and connect. Luke had 2 different teachers, but students generally have the same teacher each week. The teacher was engaging and friendly, she kept Luke engaged and interested the entire time. I would receive email updates after each class to advise me of Luke’s progress.
My husband is a math professor, so math is very central in our home. We believe in helping our children develop their fundamental math skills at an early age because it sets the groundwork for their academic success and real-life applications down the road. Revolution Math is aligned with this philosophy as well so the program was a great fit for us.
Revolution Math is the only program that allows kids to learn the way they want with the convenience of an online platform. Luke was able to earn points and gems that he could trade in once he earned enough for real reward prizes.
The program has a story-based curriculum, students were able to choose which character they wanted to be at the start of each class. There are masks in the Revolution Math Kit that make it even more fun. Students read their part in the story line and then help solve problems using math skills.
