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

The Simply Good and the Beautiful Math team knows homeschool parents need open-and-go, enjoyable 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 learning. 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 the math courses as completely free downloads!

Why? We feel that homeschooling changes lives and want to help more parents start and stick with homeschooling. We believe that our good and beautiful curriculum makes homeschooling a 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 old lessons in this way, students continue to review what they have learned and build upon previous knowledge. Concepts from lower-level courses are reviewed as well, and those concepts are built upon.

Learn more about the spiral math approach at the link below!

Simply Good and Beautiful Math K–3

Our Levels K–3 parent-led math courses feature short, effective lessons that use 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, 5, and 6, students begin a 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 refer to the mini lesson for help during the lesson practice. Or they choose to skip the video completely and use the mini lesson if they already have an understanding of 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. Reviews, games, logic activities, and puzzles are included throughout the course, and assessments are found 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.”

    We love TGATB math!! My 5 year old uses the kindergarten one and she can do so much of it on her own. It’s very cool to see her enjoy working so independently. She especially likes to read “read to the child” and then giggle haha.
