Times Tales DVD – Kids can learn their times tables in a snap! We have used the paper version of Times Tales and it really works! Most homeschoolers say the DVD only takes about an hour to teach kids the upper times tables. There’s also a downloadable version available.
Life of Fred Math Stories – After reading the Fred books, kids will never say “math is boring” ever again. My daughter was getting into a slump and needed to take a break from our regular math curriculum. These books are really helping her understand the concepts. Fictional stories weave in math concepts with real world examples. Start with the Apples book for early math, and follow Fred all the way to calculus lessons!
