Simply Good and Beautiful Math: What It’s All About 

The Simply Good and the Beautiful Math team knows homeschool parents need enjoyable open-and-go lessons that are just the right length, while also building a solid foundation of strong number sense and mathematical thinking. That is exactly what we have created with our Simply Good and Beautiful homeschool math curriculum. Watch the video below or keep reading to learn more!

Every level of math includes 120 lessons divided into units, followed by an assessment at the end of each unit. Throughout the entire math program, students slowly gain independence as lessons progress from being parent-led in Math K through 3 to student-led in Math 4 and above. 

Lessons are simple, yet powerful, and connect math to nature, art, and real-world situations. They also exceed most national math standards!

Free Homeschool Math

One of the benefits of these math courses is the super-low pricing on the physical course sets, but we also offer all of the math courses as completely free downloads!

Why? We feel that homeschooling changes lives, and we want to help more parents start and stick with homeschooling. We believe that our Good and Beautiful curriculum makes homeschooling a more meaningful and less overwhelming experience.

Spiral Math

Simply Good and Beautiful Math takes a spiral approach to learning. In each lesson a student learns and practices a new concept and also reviews previous concepts. By spiraling back to previous lessons and lower-level courses in this way, students continue to review what they have learned and build upon previous knowledge.

Simply Good and Beautiful Math K–3

Our Levels K–3 parent-led math courses feature short, effective lessons using stories, games, fun activities, and a simple box with fun manipulatives for a hands-on, interactive approach to learning.

Simply Good and Beautiful Math 4–6

In Levels 4–6, students begin each lesson by watching a video, which includes interactive guided practice completed in the course book. Each video features an engaging theme to make the content relatable to the student. 

The lesson also includes a concise, written mini lesson. Students can refer to the mini lesson for help during the lesson practice. Or they can choose to skip the video completely and use just the mini lesson if they already understand that day’s concept. Sometimes parents choose to teach their children using only the mini lesson. 

After the lesson, students complete Lesson Practice and Review pages. Parents then check their child’s work with the answer key included in the course set. We have incorporated reviews, games, logic activities, and puzzles throughout the course, and students will find assessments  at the end of each unit.

A Happy Homeschool Mom…

We know it can be difficult to decide whether or not a curriculum will work for your family. Perhaps this comment we received from a homeschool mom with almost two decades of homeschool experience will help:

“My youngest two girls (6 and 9) have done Simply Good and Beautiful Math since Math K. Their foundation is so solid, and their minds are being trained to think mathematically in so many ways. The lessons allow for short, high-quality focus on the math concepts and keep it fun and engaging before their attention span runs out, making math a positive experience each day. 

This program is filling a void that has existed in the homeschool world for a long time: parent friendly! No separate teacher manual, easy open-and-go, rigorous but hands-on and fun too. I feel like my kids are going to be much more prepared for high school and college this time around.”

    I started homeschooling almost 4 years ago. We started with a mix of curriculum that I thought was fitting our needs. We kept eliminating the ones that wasn’t working and increasing the ones that were working. We love TGTB and have a large stash of it, if that tells you what works. Our favorite is the math and LA. Also all the books. My son is doing so well in his classes and understanding so fluidly thanks to TGTB wonderful way of presenting it.

    I absolutely LOVE Good and Beautiful MATH PROGRAM! We completed Level 4 – 6 and prayjing for grades 7-12!📚

    Its a COLORFUL curriculum … reinforcing the fundamentals of math in every lesson .. I suggest when starting the program .. start with the placement test to find their real mastery level vs grade level. If child is struggling or avoiding math … their struggle is real … they may need to go back to earlier levels to build those foundations … confidence is everything! That confidence builds excitement and a WINNING environment! The recipe for a happy Homeschooler!
