Have you heard of The Learn Math Fast System? It’s a series of books for
teaching 1st – 9th grade math, but they’re written differently than a typical
math textbook. Author J.K. Mergens wrote the Learn Math Fast series after
homeschooling her own son. She claims that these books can help struggling
students get caught up to grade level in just a few months – which means they
could jump ahead over summer break!
A new book, “Applications for Algebra,” will be released on February 10, 2013. I
must admit I’m intrigued, even though we’ve always used Saxon Math.
Even if you’re not interested in the math books, you might still enjoy visiting
the Learn Math Fast website to print free worksheets, get a free math placement
test, watch a YouTube video to learn “The 9’s Trick,” and read inspirational
articles such as “Why Should I Homeschool” and “Advice on Fidgety Kids.” No
sign-up or anything like that, just some free resources with no strings
