Art of Problem Solving Presents: Beast Academy!

Batterson Beast Academy (cover)

As a homeschool Mom, I am always trying to find ways to make school more fun..especially Math! My son does not care much for this 4 letter word and it can sometimes be more than a chore to get him to even half way want to do the subject.  One reason I chose to homeschool is because I have a gifted child who does get bored easily. I was thrilled when Beast Academy sent me the Math Guide 4A and the practice book to go along with it. The fully illustrated Guides for the grade includes complete lessons in an entertaining comic book style. My son was impressed with this because he likes to read. The practice books have challenging problems and much more. What I did find is that they are slightly advanced in the Grade 4 book we reviewed, which is not a bad thing at all.  We received the Grade 4A book because the 5th grade books are not out yet but the book was not too easy and too boring. I like that the book is aligned to the 2010 National Common Core State Standards and my son likes that the book is not boring like many other brands of Math Books.

Self Disclosure: I received the books free to review but any opinions expressed are my own.
