Why does Hunter have such a big, exuberant, giddy smile on his face in this picture, you ask?
Because he just finished doing almost a hundred addition equations, of course!
Hunter is really starting to love his daily practice sheets in his Math Three Super-Math curriculum. His ridiculously enthusiastic smile in this picture happens to be because he couldn't stop laughing through this whole Factsmaster sheet because he is beating his previous time.
The goal is to be able to do all 100 equations in under five minutes, with a perfect score (it's three minutes for teens and up). The worksheets are different each day, so you're not just memorizing the order.
And once he beats that five-minute mark? He gets his Factsmaster ribbon, for that subject (addition, subtraction, multiplication or division). Which he is uber excited about, to say the least.
Some of the topics coming up in his Math Three program, include borrowing and carrying, times tables up to 100, advanced auditory memory training, proper and improper fractions, powers and roots, long division and multiplication, decimal fractions and percents, and, well, a ton of other stuff.
Mom is a little bit intimidated.
But I'm just going to have faith in my child that kids are far more capable than we give them credit for. And, besides. How hard can it be if he's caught the math bug?
See my review of their Math One program here. A full review on Math Three will be coming soon!
