Professor B is a math program with 3 levels that is designed for children in Pre-K through 8th grade. Unlike other online math programs, Professor B is not intended as a program for you to plug your kids into and then walk away. You will need to sit with your child and do the program with them.
Here is a breakdown of the 3 levels of instruction from their website:
Pre-k though 2nd graders and remediation of older learners. Introduction to Addition/Subtraction Facts – Counting to One Hundred – Lower Addition and Subtraction – Higher Addition and Subtraction – Place Value Fractional Parts & Order – Time – Money
3rd grade through 5th grade and remediation of older learners. Multiplication/Division Facts and Problem Solving – Introduction to Fractions – Fractional Equivalence – Addition and Subtraction Fractions
6th through 8th grades and remediation of older learners. Multiplication/Division of Fractions – Decimals – Percents
Each level is intended to be accomplished in one year, although you may take longer than that if you choose. So, as you can see from the breakdown above, once you are finished with all 3 levels, your child will be at an 8th grade level in math.
That’s not too shabby! Math is definitely one of those subjects where it would be beneficial to be ahead! Even though the child will be ahead, there is no pressure from Professor B to perform, so don’t let that worry you.
My kids enjoyed Professor B once we figured out which level was an appropriate place to start.
