Since math is one of the most important subjects in a student’s curriculum, and math is so much a skill based upon repetition and review, a program that allows virtually unlimited practice and self-correction is one of the most valuable learning tools a homeschooling family can have.

IXL.com is a comprehensive web-based math-supplemental program that offers both parent and child the opportunity to practice math material taught in a textbook or other format.
