Good Course after Preschool Math and before MATH 1.

CAN BE TAKEN WITHOUT HAVING TAKEN PRESCHOOL MATH as it covers what was taught in PRESCHOOL MATH and more.

We HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS COURSE as a BEGINNING MATH COURSE. As it contains much of the material taught in MATH 1, it makes MATH 1 much easier and gives the child a SUCCESS EXPERIENCE to boost his MATH confidence.

Background:
The Beehive math program has been innovative, using tried and true techniques and some newer ones. In 2009, our students in the 2nd-4th grade class, took a nationally-normed third grade math test. The individual average score was the 92nd percentile! That means that they did better on the test than 92 out of a 100 kids who took it. We expect that those taking the Homeschool courses will do as well, if not better! 🙂
