5 Charlotte Mason Inspired Math Programs

Let me start by saying… I love homeschool curriculum! It’s a bit of an obsession. I like to research all types of curriculum, read reviews, compare and contrast… it’s just what I do. I like to know my options. One thing people tend to ask me about a lot is Charlotte Mason Inspired Math Programs. What options are out there? Which one should I choose? Well, I can’t tell you which one will work best for your family, but I am going to give you a list of options and break it down for you. So, maybe I can be helpful in making your decision.

(Note: These are all Living Math/ Charlotte Mason Friendly Math programs.)

Charlotte Mason’s Living Math: A Guided Journey

Charlotte Mason’s Living Math: A Guided Journey is published by Simply Charlotte Mason. Living Math gives you the tools to learn the approach Miss Mason took when teaching Math from the early years through High School. They have a DVD set and workbook available. The DVD set gives you examples of teaching math the Charlotte Mason way. (This would be a must for me!) I have never used this myself, but it has been highly recommended to me from other fellow Charlotte Mason homeschool moms/veterans.

Math Lessons for a Living Education

Math Lessons for a Living Education is by Master books Publishing. I am so tempted to try this one out. It looks really great. Each lesson is short and taught through a colorful story. You are also provided hands-on practice and drills.

Life of Fred

Life of Fred is a story based Math curriculum. It is complete although some people use it as a supplemental program with a more traditional program. My sister uses Life of Fred for her son and has seen some really great progress. He is a very auditory learner, so LOF fits perfectly! Plus, most kids enjoy the silly storyline, I know mine did!

*Side Note: Life of Fred can be perceived as Twaddle because of its nonsense stories. I’d say that this is something you need to judge for yourself.

Elementary Arithmetic

Elementary Arithmetic is a fairly new Charlotte Mason Math program by Simply Charlotte Mason. You can purchase the items individually or in a bundle which comes with the textbook, a gridded notebook, and a manipulatives kit.

The Good and The Beautiful Math

The Good and The Beautiful Math programs are pretty new! For now they only have levels 1-2 released but are planning for the release of 3 and for soon. TGATB is Charlotte Mason inspired. So, if you are looking for something that is more true-to-Mason, this one may not be your first option.

Any more suggestions?
