Things not adding up with mathematics? Check out these great supplementary arithmetic resources to multiply your kids understanding on Math!
This list is most likely going to contain resources from other lists as well; reading, science, and computer science.
I have personally used and approved all of the following platforms myself and my kids have tested them intently through the years we have spent homeschooling, so you know the opinions are based on personal experience and not just biased promotion of products.
Next to the titles of the programs, I will include my families rating based on thing like:
- Level of fun they have.
- How much they have learned.
- How often they interact with.
- Finally, relevance to the subject (reading, math, etc.)
Without further adieu, lets get to the supplemental math resources for homeschoolers!

Math Resources: Pre-k through 2nd Grade
Homer - 5/10
Homer Learn & Grow has made a tremendous impact on our early learners!
Reading is the primary focus within the app, and as such received a lower rating for the math category. It is included, but from what I have seen, kids are pushed in the direction of reading comprehension more often than they are math skills. It does cover math, just not in as much detail as it does reading comprehension.
There are videos, games, books, art activities and so much more to keep them enthralled, and the best part is everything is 100% educational!
ABCmouse - 10/10
This program is one of the best apps I can recommend as a parent of younger homeschool kids! It covers alot of subject matter very early on and is really a sinch to navigate for kids.
Math is the most prominent subject covered on ABCmouse in my opinion, simply because even during the reading games and activities, they are encouraged to use mental math and critical thinking to solve the issues at hand.
Math Resources: 3rd grade through 6th grade
Adventure Academy - 9/10
Adventure Academy is more like a learning mmorpg, but it is intended for kids that are a little older and more familiar with how to operate a computer. It does work on some tablets, but the experience is not ideal.
Think Runscape for learning, but with way better graphics.
My kids picked up more math skills using this platform than anything else so far, and they tend to struggle in the arithmetic area so it will always be a go-to educational tool for our family.
I still intend to write an in-depth review soon, but if you want to check it out, click the button and take advantage of the 30-day free trial and let me know what you think in the comments on this post!
Math Resources: All Ages
Carson Dellosa - 10/10
This isn’t an app or game, but there are tons of resources available for purchase on their website!
We buy supplemental resources from them regularly, and most of the time our kids are happy to help us pick new learning materials to enhance their studies.
You can filter by budget, age level, and subject if you are looking to put together a full curriculum, or even just find more educational resources for your kids. (Check out the clearance page!!)
More to come soon!
There are many more resources out there, and I intend to test and review as many of them as possible!
However these things take time to research and test. Once we commit them into the Unschooling Curriculum we have developed as a family, I will begin the reviews and post them here. If you have any requests or recommendations of your own, feel free to let me know in the comments below and I will see what I can do!
