It’s been more than a few years since this Grandma has been in school, so I am thankful for all the help I can get when it comes to homework time for my grandchildren. Over summer break, I had great success in getting my granddaughters to read but convincing them to brush up on math was a little more challenging for me. Getting the opportunity to try out Go Math! Academy, an online learning program couldn’t have come at a better time for us.
I received compensation from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt for writing this post.
Go Math! Academy is an online, at-home learning program based on Houghton Mifflin Harcourt’s enormously successful GO Math!™ textbook curriculum. Used by over 7 million kids worldwide, Go Math! Academy offers thousands of math practice problems, hundreds or help videos, and plenty of games and rewards to make learning fun!
Go Math! Academy makes learning fun for kids. When we set up Maddie’s profile, she got to choose a journey – Jungle World or Sky World. It’s an environment for learning without pressure. There are several things that I really like about Go Math! Academy. The first being the positive reinforcement the child receives at each step. As activity lessons are completed, awards are achieved. There’s even a special section where you can view the awards gained, and you can print them out as well.
I especially like that there are help related features that assist children if they have problems understanding a skill. If your child gets an answer wrong, Go Math! Academy makes sure to tell them what they missed and lets them correct it. Once a skill is mastered, children can move around a bit and try the higher levels of that particular skill.
For parents, you can track your child’s progress on a dashboard that is password protected, making it easy to review what skill your child is on at any time.
Key features of Go Math! Academy:
- Lively, engaging online experience lets children select a theme to launch their own personal math journey1
- Independent learning empowers children to complete the grade-level curriculum in order to select the skill they want to practice.
- Skill-boosting approach offers step-by-step math problems to support practice.
- Entertaining help videos feature expert instructors (and loveable puppets to engage younger kids) who make math concepts clear and fun!
The online program currently covers grades K- 6. With my grandchildren getting older, I’m hoping this is soon extended to include middle school and high school. I think Go Math! Academy is great. It makes homework fun, it’s affordable and it saves money on tutoring.
Go Math! Academy is available in your choice of three payment plans (access for up to 5 children):
- Monthly: $9.99/month
- 6-months: $49.99 ($8.33/month) – a 17% savings
- 1-year: $79.99 ($6.67/month) – a 33% savings

How does your child or grandchild feel about math?
Sounds like a fun way to practice math. Cementing math skills is essential to later school success, and making fun is the way to go.
I’m terrible at math and I’ve heard a lot of great things about this program.
This would be a great resource to share with my students!
I need to try this for my son, we are looking for something to push him.
i wish i had this when i was in school coz i kinda hate math and having a hard time with it. maybe my life would be more easier if i had this program before

I have to tell you, I find this very reasonable. A math tutor in these parts can be up to $40/hour… ouch.

a very nice site/app/program that will help kids/children in performing well with mathematics.
It sounds like a wonderful way for students to meet new goals in math while still having fun. There are so many apps available, but they aren’t as tied to the standards my kids are learning in school as Go Math! is. It sounds like a great compliment to their studies.

My oldest is in fifth grade and struggles with most new math concepts. This looks like an easy, affordable way to help her get some extra studying time in.
