MathTacular Review & Giveaway!

Have you ever heard of MathTacular?  I had not until I came across it at a homeschool convention.  Once I saw it I knew it would be absolutely perfect for Alpha Boy.  He loves hands on stuff, like most other little five year olds.


MathTacluar is a multi-level math curriculum.  Although, I hesitate to use the word curriculum because that word sounds boring and MathTacular is so NOT boring.  MathTacular is a series of DVD lessons that are based on real life math that use lots of different manipulative's. The math lessons in the DVD's are lots of fun and easy to understand.  Justin, the math master mind of the DVD series, catches the children's attention and knows how to keep it. 


There are 4 DVD"s in the MathTacular Series, lots of math manipulative's as well as several packages that are available.  We reviewed the MathTacular Educational Kit which included the following:

  • MathTacular Kit DVD (67 of the 88 activities in MathTacular)
  • Bear Counters
  • Color Tiles
  • Red & White Counter
  • Mini-Clock
  • Die
  • Base Ten Blocks
  • Pattern Blocks
  • 12" Wooden Ruler
  • Number Flash Cards
  • Number Chart
  • Gram Centimeter Cubes
  • Geo Board with Bands (my kids especially love this!)
  • Popsicle Sticks & Pinto Beans (for place value practice)
  • Sidewalk Chalk
  • Math Manipulative's Guide

We have really enjoyed watching Justin and friends teach us about ordinal numbers while running laps around a track.  As well as learning the difference between odd and even numbers while watching Justin make peanut butter and cracker sandwiches.  There is alot to learn on the MathTacular DVD that is included in the Educational Kit, from number basics to comparison, to practical math.  There are 67 lessons in all. 

The MathTacular Educational Kit that we reviewed is geared toward children ages 4-7 and costs $49.99. 

The wonderful folks at MathTacular have offered to giveaway a DVD to one of my readers!  The winner will get to choose between 4 MathTacular DVD's.

I am honestly not sure which thing I would buy...but I do have some serious questions for you...How does the educational kit work? Does the DVD that comes with it tell you to stop and do something with the manipulatives? I am looking at for sure getting one of these things...I am not sure if the kit would be best or the videos...I am wanting it for my 3 and 5 year olds to do while I do English with my older one...bc we need quiet...and I would love for them to have something educational to watch that would reinforce math that I am teaching them...but I don't know that they would be able to pause and "do" something without me being there...so maybe the videos would be best? I would love to know what you think...I am sure my 6.5 year old will watch too...and he could pause the tv to do an activity...what a hard choice. What do you think?!

I blogged about it at www.achazia-me.blogspot.com
