Classical Conversations Math Resources


Math Resources for Classical Conversations (All Cycles, All Weeks) or for anybody just looking for resources related to teaching multiplication, unit conversions, geometry, and math laws...

As I always forewarn, it is not necessary to supplement Classical Conversations (aside from a language arts and math program). If you'd like to use some supplemental math memory work resources, here are some for you to peruse and glean what you can.  But please remember it is much more important just to memorize the math facts presented in Classical Conversations Foundations Guide, 4th Edition than it is to complete a whole bunch of activities. Fortunately, there are plenty of math-drill opportunities in what is presented on this page!

Out of the following, our family has used the file folder games (the children enjoy them, but they take quite a bit of prep work for the teacher!), the Toymaker Skip Counter, and xtramath.org. But our family has most used consistently:

  1. Hi Brandy, I'm Senae. I got your e-mail through MTHEA Chat. I love your honesty in this post about why you didn't want to take on the tutor position w CC! lol. Sounds a lot like me, not with CC, but with other things. ;) I have two children ages 5 & 3, and my blog is at www.ketchupkisses.blogspot.com. Glad to find your blog. :)
