America's Math Teacher

As a member of the TOS Crew we received a free trial of the America's Math Teacher to review. Their math program is new to the online scene and were making many wonderful changes while we were reviewing their product. This program has the ability to be very helpful to homeschool families. One on One teaching for multiple kids at different levels with one price.

Rick Fisher is the teacher for AMT and he has been teaching 5 & 6 grade math since 1971 with 1/2 of his students bypassing the 7th grade math program. He wants to make sure students master the fundamentals in math so that they can go on to higher math levels.

This math program has 4 courses:
  • Course 1 - Basic Math Skills
  • Course 2 - Advanced Math Skills
  • Course 3 - Pre-Algebra Concepts
  • Course 4 - Algebra
You can view the list of subjects taught in each level on the websites About America's Math Teacher.

It is easy to use:
  • You work along with the Math Teacher Video lesson
  • Complete the written exercise
  • Take the quiz
  • Take the final Exam for each course

  • To start with you can have your child take an evaluation exam to see what skill level the student is at. When we took the test there were a few issues with the grading aspect, but AMT was just up and running and are working through the glitches.

    The videos are basically just one on one instruction. There isn't any fluff in them, no time wasted on graphics and going from each concept taught.
If you would like to see a sample of what AMT has to offer you can check out some printed sheets and videos. You can also contact your area sales representative to get a coupon code for a 30 day free trial.
The worksheets have helpful hints pertaining to the lesson and a speed drill section, or you can do random speed drills in addition, subtraction and multiplication from the website. My 9 year old daughter had fun doing them online because they randomally highlight the fact that should be answered next. You can visit the speed drills and see how well you do.

The American Math Teacher is $195 for a year subscription. That gives you unlimited access to the website for all of your children in 4th grade to Algebra. I think this is a very good price for what they offer. If you have multiple children in these math levels this program could be beneficial to your family. We are seriously thinking of using this program in the years to come.
