Summit Math makes it easy to learn at home. If you want your child to have access to direct teaching, you can subscribe to ad-free teaching videos that provide step-by-step instruction for every scenario in the Guided Discovery section of each book.
These open-and-learn workbooks are designed to make math approachable. Your child will like the lightweight, colorful workbooks that are easy to carry, while you will appreciate that your child can develop a deep understanding of each math concept.
Each book is like a path that guides your child through their learning. An Answer Key is included to give them immediate feedback as they advance through each book.
If you are homeschooling and want to know how long it takes to get through the books in each series, you can find suggestions for pacing using the link below.
“ We got this series for my daughter (7th grade). We also subscribed to the teaching videos on the website. My daughter, who is not a fan of math, said this is her favorite math that we have tried. It is an open and go curriculum. If you subscribe to the videos you get the teacher with the curriculum.
There is a pacing guide on the website to help you decide how to set up your child's math plan for the year. You can access that for free even if you don't subscribe to the videos.
I love that it is designed to allow for student independence. Our daughter can go at her pace, use the videos if she is struggling, check her answers as she goes. We help when asked but it is nice to have so many options for her to succeed on her own.
We had some questions and were able to email the author who was extremely nice and helpful which is so amazing when homeschooling.”
“ Learning math with the Summit Math books is an experience like no other thanks to the various types of scenarios and the clear way of explaining how to do each type of scenario. The scenarios are unique in the way that each and every one of them encourages you to explore the topic a little more. The explanations throughout the book explain multiple ways of solving a certain type of scenario, not just one way. Overall, if you like to learn at your own pace AND have a deep understanding of the topics you are learning, I would recommend the Summit Math books for you.”
LEARNING MATH THROUGH GUIDED DISCOVERY
Guided Discovery is designed to help you experience a sense of discovery as you learn each new topic.
WHY THIS CURRICULUM IS NAMED SUMMIT MATH
Learning through Guided Discovery can be compared to climbing a mountain. Climbing and learning both require effort and persistence. In both activities, people naturally move at different paces, but they can reach the summit if they keep moving forward. Whether you race rapidly through these books or step slowly through each scenario, this curriculum is designed to keep advancing your learning until you reach the end of the book.
GUIDED DISCOVERY SCENARIOS
The Guided Discovery Scenarios in each book are written and arranged to show you that new math concepts are related to previous concepts you have already learned. Try to fully understand each scenario before moving on to the next one. To do this, try the scenario on your own first, check your answer when you finish, and then fix any mistakes, if needed. Making mistakes and struggling are essential parts of the learning process.
HOMEWORK & EXTRA PRACTICE SCENARIOS
After you complete the scenarios in each Guided Discovery section, you may think you know those topics well, but over time, you will forget what you have learned. Extra practice will help you develop better retention of each topic. Use the Homework and Extra Practice Scenarios to improve your understanding and to increase your ability to retain what you have learned.
THE ANSWER KEY
The Answer Key is included to promote learning. When you finish a scenario, you can get immediate feedback. When the Answer Key is not enough to help you fully understand a scenario, you should try to get additional guidance from another student or a teacher.
