The Factor Tree -- Boom or Bust?



As a Bzzagent, I was recently offered both the opportunity to try out a month of free services (in exchange for my honest opinion of what they are offering) and the opportunity to share with my readers and fellow bloggers a link so that they can check it out for themselves! Just started on Alex's math enhancement, join me in trying it out and let me know what YOU think!


A better way to learn math

Every student learns differently — shouldn’t your child be taught math in the way that works best for them? The team at The Factor Tree think so. Which is why their online supplementary math education platform adapts as your child learns, to ensure your pre-K to 6th-grader is always taught in the way that gets the best results.

What makes the Factor Tree so effective?

  • Provides the practice and repetition needed for a child to truly master key math skills
  • Use a skill-adaptive progression algorithm to pinpoint each child’s true skill level
  • Provides parents with helpful reports, metrics and notifications to track their child’s progress
  • Combines a state testing-compliant curriculum, world class educational theories and innovative technology to create a better learning tool
Visit thefactortree.com to learn more about its distinct approach to education and sign up for your free one-month trial.

Educator.com --Hit Or Miss? YOU Can Help Me Decide!



We've all been there — the teacher who can't really teach, the textbook that makes things more confusing, the frustration of studying for a big exam. There are a lot of reasons your children might want or need a little extra guidance. That's what educator.com is for. Matching students with online lecture videos taught by the best college professors, Educator provides your children with everything they need to succeed in their courses.


Because I am a Buzzagent, I was offered this WONDERFUL campaign to accept one month of free access to their content in exchange for my honest opinion (good OR bad) of it. I'm excited! I was ALSO asked to share an EXCLUSIVE code (  EDUCBMF30    )  with my blog readers/fellow bloggers for a free month of : 



  • Courses in Mathematics, Science and Computer Programming
  • Courses available at junior high, high school and college levels
  • Detailed notes highlighting the most important points
  • Multiple examples worked out and explained in each lecture, with additional worked-out video examples available
I would be VERY interested to know your opinions over the next month or so :).
