Sponsored Review: CTC Math Program for Kindergarten Through Calculus!

CTC Math

Yes, educational sites which offer much, are prevalent.
Perhaps many do as they promise.
But, if you are looking for an affordable, consistent, no frills,
comprehensive approach to math for any level...
I mean any level, kindergarten through Calculus,
then seriously, look no further.

CTC Math is just what will benefit your kids as an introduction to
or a reinforcement of any math topic.
And I found it offered strong review to me, as a homeschooling mom, 
especially as I struggle with grasping the  more
 difficult mathematical concepts within algebra
and how to present them in a fundamental, yet simple manner! 
Yes, I was provided the benefit of a membership to the site
and compensation from CTC  in order to 
use it with my kids and review it.
I found that 
CTC Math truly and sincerely became 
a strong asset in our homeschool.

The targeted student audience
 for usage of CTC Math 
is quite broad and comprehensive.:
Kindgergarten through grade 6
students studying these higher level math disciplines:
Algebra I
Pre Calculus
Algebra II

There's something for everyone at every level there!

Here's how you can get started:

Sign up here at this easy to follow screen

How we used CTCMath in our homeschool:

My kids are in grades 5 and 8 and so those levels have been used widely here!
I'll be sharing some of the math concepts and tutorials around the topics.

The course/grade level offerings are on the left (Kdgn through Trig)
The stream for grade 5 is in the center:
number, patterns and algebra
space and geometry
stats and probability.
Each topic within is on the right.:
Number I
Number II
Patterns and Algebra
Problem Solving

The same teacher, Pat, conducts all the tutorials.
He is your child's personal tutor and has a soft, yet
authoritative manner.

As far as the 8th grade course, we are studying
 Algebra 1 and the CTC program was a great asset in our
pursuit of mastering the basics as well as the more complicated topics.

If you are interested in any of the higher level math disciplines, you need only click 
on the left and then choose the "stream."
For example, once in Algebra, simply click let's say,
"Part 2"
if that is the level you presume to be
for a presentation of these topics:
Algebra Introduction
Algebraic Fractions
Algebraic Equations
Simultaneous Equations

Then click a topic for a video tutorial comprising
numerous examples.
Let's say you'd like a review of
"Equations Involving Fractions,"
here is a shot of one of these tutorials:

A few  shots of CTC to give you an idea of lesson examples:

Pricing of CT Math:
$78.80 for a single student account 
You can get a free trial right here though

I thank CTC Math for the opportunity to review 
and share this  wonderful resource!

Friends, as always,  
thank you for stopping over and

Busy For The Right Reasons

 My regular readers know I'm passionate about many topics,
some of which have become series here in my corner of the web.

Well, I’ve been busy working on my new fabulous product,

Teaching your Dyslexic Child which launches........
drumroll please: tomorrow!
I'm SOOOOOO excited!
Within, are discussions of~~
-myths associated with this specific learning disability-identification & diagnosis
-remedial strategies
-learning accommodations
- further advocacy.

My e-book is offered within the 2018 Catholic Mom Bundle,
an all-digital compilation, loaded with resources.

Let me tell you a little about this pretty nifty sale:

For 5 days only, 20 Catholic businesswomen have pooled together 
their best resources for moms. 
We have products for liturgical living, personal faith, 
emotional health, catechesis, creativity, family prayer, 
home organization, home management.
Some of the resources include printables, workbooks, eBooks, and email courses.

For a single price, you can get my ebook plus 19 Catholic products too!

The total value of this all-digital bundle is $246.
But since that’s a little out of reach for moms on a budget ( ! )
we want to offer it to you at a crazy low price: only $25.

The sale ends November 16th at midnight, so now is the time to buy.

There’s a 30-day guarantee if you have any problems.
But I seriously do not want you to miss this limited-time event.

I'll be back with more updates and excerpts throughout the week!

Monday mashup & links I love

                                                         A gathering of thoughts, 
                                                   links, news, highlights, funnies,
                                                                      and / or
 the latest goings - on here at the blog.
Sort of a weekly dumping ground of updates and features.........:
Here goes: 

You know we love travel around here....
when we're not actually out and on the road, 
the next best thing is reading about places, old places.
Doesn't matter.

I've recently fallen for Kristin Hannah's latest,  The Great Alone,

based on her real life experiences living in Alaska!
I'm a huge huge Kristin Hannah admirer, but this, 
when paired with Krakauer's Into the Wild, is a perfect match.
The latter title's about a young man from a 
wealthy family who ditched his life, donated tons to charity then burned his cash
 determined to adventure through nature much like
his heroes, John Muir and Jack London.

I won't give away more of the plot, but it is a must-read.

I've seen this gem in a few places on social media
and since I love it and believe it,  had to share here!:

I've a giveaway coming up for this wonderful 
sacramental prep book.
It served both my kids well as they prepared for confirmation years ago
and I'd be delighted to offer a copy to one fortunate reader 
lucky enough to win!
Once "sacrament season" is upon us, after Easter, I'll be posting!
So come on back soon!   😉

Since we entered Holy Week yesterday,
I thought I'd share my post from the archives on 
making all sorts of lovely palm crosses, rosettes and more.....✝️

Baby chimp = adorable co-pilot!
Pilot Anthony Caere transports sweet little Mussa from
poachers in the Democratic Republic of Congo to the
Lwior Primates Sanctuary....Watch here!
