What is Revolution Math?
A SOLUTION FOR PARENTS
Have you ever felt a little lost as a parent when you’re trying to help your kids with homework? Or hoped that you could supplement your children’s learning in a fun and engaging way that didn’t take hours of preparation or planning in your already busy schedule?
Yes, me too.
Even though I am involved and intentional about my children’s education, I simply don’t keep up with every single different curriculum they are working on all the time. One area I particularly struggle is with math concepts. I want to help, but sometimes am not sure exactly how.
These feelings of struggle I have experienced made me especially interested when I was introduced to Revolution Math.
AN INTERACTIVE LEARNING PROGRAM
Revolution math is an interactive, online math program designed for kids in 2nd through 5th grades as a weekly after-school learning group. (My boys are currently in 2nd and 4th, so it hit home.)
Each week the student logs onto his/her profile and meets with a tutor and two to three other students, all joining remotely from their own locations. The tutor is the same week after week, so everyone gets to know each other.
How does Revolution Math work?
When you sign up for Revolution Math, you chose a time slot for a weekly meeting. There are numerous meeting times, so you should easily be able to find one that fits your schedule.
I chose a weekday evening at 7pm, when my other kids will be getting ready for bed and we have already finished our family dinnertime.
The weekly lesson has an accompanying adventure that requires quick thinking and problem solving. Each of the students assumes a role (and grabs a mask from the learning kit) and reads along with the script.
As the students solve the problems, they earn gems that can then be exchanged for real prizes in the Revolution Math Store. Milo has been saving up for a new LEGO set.
Will My Child Enjoy It?
PURPOSEFUL SCREEN TIME
From the moment we signed up and Milo received his Revolution Math learning kit in the mail, he has been hooked. He loves spending time on the computer, though until this program that time was usually limited to watching learn-to-draw YouTube videos, and his daily video game screen-time.
He feels grown up signing into his own remote learning group on Revolution Math, and is always excited to finish dinner and get ready for the program each week. In fact, my middle son, who is in second grade, has been equally enthralled by the program and sits along side Milo during class.
We are planning to sign him up for his own class starting next month, so both boys will have their own learning class.
It is so fun to have a program that both the kids enjoy and that is teaching real skills and providing a chance for my kids to immerse themselves in math theory and concepts without realizing what is happening. They feel like they are playing a game, and look forward to the next class.
How Do I Sign Up?
Normally, when you sign up for Revolution Math you get our first month for $49, down from the regular price of $99/month.
However, I got a special discount code for my readers that includes one full month of classes (four 60-minute sessions) as well as a learning kit with dice, a pencil, protractor, graph paper, area tiles, flash cards, character masks, and a poster all for only one dollar.
There is no contract, so you can choose to continue with the program after the trial, or stop when the month ends. There is really no reason to NOT claim this basically free trial program! Plus, you keep all of the math tools either way.
We Love It!
I have really loved the chance to get Milo settled into an exciting, immersive math program that he is excited about, and I already am looking forward to the progress we see with Eliot as well.
Giving my kids a chance to learn and develop with confidence outside of the classroom spills over and helps them feel engaged and interested in the classroom.
I can’t wait to hear what you and your kids think!
