When I grew up, a lot of the math I did involved memorization. I will proudly say that I was good at it and loved it (well at least once I understood it – ha ha)! Now that I have my own children, it’s a little tougher, especially where Common Core Math comes into play. As a parent, I want to be able to help my children and not only have the answers, but know how to explain how to get the answers if they need help! It makes it hard though when I can’t even figure it out for myself, it’s hard for me to help them figure it out. Math shouldn’t be a subject that is dreaded, but rather one that is fun. That is where Revolution Math comes into play.

Revolution Math is an online, after-school program designed to help 2nd-5th graders develop their math skills and overall love of learning. Small squads of 3-4 students are matched with a live tutor as they go on weekly adventures, using math to solve mysteries and tackle team-based challenges.

Revolution Math, an online learning program for elementary students (grades 2-5), is based in Santa Monica, California.  Combining live tutoring with an immersive and story-based curriculum, Revolution Math has been met with overwhelmingly positive feedback from parents, students and teachers.  Their core mission is to help students not only get excited by math, but also to get ahead and boost engagement in the learning process. My kids learned so much with these best secondary maths tutors.

Features of Revolution Math

The Characters

Students select their favorite characters at the beginning of each session and read their parts in a story infused math adventure. The characters’ names are Zoe, Merek, Britt and Rowen. The characters look different based on the age and grade (i.e. Grade 2 looks like a kid while Grade 5 looks more grown up). Our son, Samuel, participated in the Revolution Math tutoring session and really enjoyed it. He chose the character Rowen (the fox).

Story-Based Learning

Revolution Math’s online learning environment uses a story-based curriculum to make the program the most engaging way to get better at math. I listened as Samuel and the teacher went through the session and it sounded fun and engaging all while doing math! The teacher was very sweet and helpful and told Sam that he could use a funny voice or even wear his character’s mask while it was his turn!

Game Instruction

During each session, students encounter Common Core aligned math games and exercises. I love that they make math fun through games and having the child interact by helping to tell the story and figure out the problems. When they figure out the problems, they get a reward. If they answer the question wrong, it’s still ok because the teacher walks them through the question and helps them to figure out how to get to the correct answer.

What’s In The Box?

Every student receives a learning kit upon joining the program. Inside they will find materials that enhance the Revolution Math
learning experience. I thought it looked like a pretty cool kit.

My Overall Thoughts

I am really glad that I was introduced to Revolution Math and I think it’s an awesome program! While right now it has grades 2-5, I would love to see it have the higher grade levels in the future. I loved how personable and helpful the teacher was and that she made it fun for Samuel. Not to mention the extras that came in the box beforehand – lots of goodies in the box! I think the idea of gems and rewards in connection to the story telling and math problem solving is a great idea and definitely helps get the kids excited about understand math! This is a great program and I highly recommend it!

    That is awesome! Unfortunately, the one thing ALL of my kids got from me is a hatred of math. They always had a hard time with it. I think this looks perfect for making it easier to understand.

  2. Danielle says:

    Revolution Math sounds like just the thing to help make math easier for the kids. It can be so hard to master.

  3. Mary Edwards says:

    This is awesome. I do wish it was for older kids too. My youngest is in 5th grade now…and I’m able to help her. But my older (7th,10th,12th graders) I could use something like this!

  4. Jeanine says:

    Wow this is fabulous. I have some kids this could be really fun for and helpful!! Very cool.

  5. Theresa says:

    This sounds like an awesome program for elementary students. Learning while having fun, plus the opportunity to win prizes? Sounds like a winner to me!

  6. Lisa Favre says:

    I think I would have chosen the Fox character too! I love the idea of this – great way to encourage kids for their math skills.

  7. Eleanor says:

    Thanks! You helped me a lot! ;D gluten free diet

  8. Dogvills says:

    This is awesome. I really don’t like math. I am scared of it! Good thing there are resources like this available so the kids can have the help they need to learn to love the subject.

  9. Dana Vento says:

    Revolution Math sounds like an awesome program. It’s important to make learning fun, especially when it comes to math. That’s one subject kids don’t naturally enjoy.

  10. This is a great way to keep kids involved in math after school and seems to make it more fun. My kids are older but I will let the other parents i know with kids in grades 2-5 know about this.

  11. Marcie W. says:

    My son could definitely benefit from a program like this. He just started fifth grade and often struggles with new math concepts. Thanks for sharing!

  12. Bill Sweeney says:

    This sounds like a great way for kids to learn about math. I can see it possibly giving them a love for the subject.

  13. Pam says:

    It I see so important to make learning fun for kids. It seems like Revolution Math does just that!

  14. Jeanine says:

    This sounds really great I’ve heard some great things and think my kids could use this themselves!

  15. I love that there are so many options available today. There were few teachers who used story-based learning when I was a kid. It really helps retain lessons.

  16. That looks like fun. I think some kids need that element of fun in order to want to learn.

  17. Marysa says:

    Sounds like a great program, and a great way to get kids learning. It’s always nice to find programs like this that get kids really engaged in math.

  18. This is so great! I love how technology is really helping kids succeed in school

  19. Rachel says:

    My kids have been much more engaged in doing math drills when they are on a tablet and look like a game. Thanks for sharing this resource.

  20. Peter says:

    I love math. Anything with numbers and I’m in. My kids have a little harder of a time with it and this looks like it would exponentially increase their understanding and love for math

  21. Shannan P says:

    This is fantastic! I love that they tie in a story element to help keep kids engaged. So many kids lose interest in math so easily and I’ll bet this really helps.

  22. brianne says:

    I am so checking this out for my kiddies for sure. My daughter struggles in math and this will for sure help!

  23. HilLesha says:

    I have always hated math, but my oldest son loves it! While he’s now in the 7th grade, this will come in handy for my daughter as she gets older.

  24. Ruth I says:

    What a great way to learn! It’s always a struggle teaching my niece math as she doesn’t like it but I know she likes to play games on the tablet. This is perfect!

  25. Angie says:

    That is such a great tool! Math can be hard for those not included towards numbers (I was always a reading/writing girl myself, but my stepson is the opposite-he prefers Math), and this could make it more fun and easier to keep up with.

  26. Esther Irish says:

    Wow! This would definitely motivate my crew to hone their math skills! I love how it includes real rewards.

  27. Catalina says:

    Wow! This is such a great idea! My kid will love it. I do love when a child learns and plays at the same time! So much fun!

  28. Kiwi says:

    I had such a hard time with math growing up. Glad it is fun tutoring programs to help kids with math this school year.

  29. Natalie says:

    I actually did pretty good in math back in the day! So great there are tutoring programs like this to help those having difficulty.

  30. Amy H says:

    I loved math as a student, but I can’t say I’d love it still if I was in school. My son tried explaining to me how to do his math and I got all lost. Thankfully he did good in it… This sounds like a great program for someone who needs a little extra help .

  31. Lynndee says:

    I think that is a great way to help kids learn math. I enjoyed math when I was in school especially algebra. Not trigonometry though. 🙂

  32. Terri Beavers says:

    Revolution Math makes it very simple to understand math. Great for those who struggle with it, I’ll have to keep this program in mind for the future.

  33. Heather says:

    This is great! I love that it’s a very age appropriate lesson and is different for every child catering to their learning needs. My nine year old daughter might really enjoy this.
