8 Best Homeschool Math Curriculum That Are Secular

Like What You See? Tell Your Friends!

We don’t hide the fact that we love math, yes I know that makes us strange, but we all really do! Here are our top picks for a homeschool math curriculum that you are all going to love.

Over the years we have used all of the homeschool math curriculum featured in this list. Therefore I am confident, that you will find the one you love.

Some of these math curriculums we used as a supplement, and others we used for years. There have been 3 that we have consistently used though through various grades:

We used IXL in lower elementary grades for all subjects. I loved that it was adaptive and spent more time going over harder subjects than wasting time on subjects my son found easier.

We were using Beast Academy in upper elementary grades, which worked really well. But it is definitely the hardest math curriculum we have found. So unless you have a child that is gifted in math, I would choose one of the other curriculums, or start at least two grades lower than their current grade.

If you need some help on how to make math fun for middle school check out our top tips.

We jumped straight into algebra after Beast Academy and are using Teaching Textbooks for this.

What is the Best Homeschool Math Curriculum?

There is certainly no one size fits all and if you don’t like one, or, it only works for a year, change it.

We have used most of these math curriculums over the years, and these really are the very best homeschool math curriculum programs you will find.

All of these homeschool math curriculums are very different.


IXL is a great Math and English interactive curriculum for grades K-12. What we really loved about IXL was the real-time diagnostic testing, so the kids are working at the level they actually are.

So if your child excelled in algebra, but couldn’t grasp long division, for example, they would work at different grade levels for each subject. What’s even better than that is if you click on my link you will get 20% off. To read our full and detailed IXL reviews check out our latest blog post.

Beast Academy

Beast Academy is for children aged 8-13, however, it is definitely aimed at gifted students. You can either do the workbooks, online, or both. As we do a lot of online work we opted for the books only and are very happy with them. The workbooks are not your typical books and are very much like a comic book.

We are working at grade 5 level, he could have gone into pre-algebra but at age 11 I thought I would keep him at 5th grade. I am so glad I did, as although he is fine with this, it certainly is the most challenging math program we have done. If you have a child that struggles with math, I would definitely start at least 2 grades lower.

We are using Beast academy as our math 6th grade homeschool curriculum.

Beast Academy Math Workbook

There are placement tests you can take, however, which I definitely recommend. Unlike all of the other math curriculums listed, this is not (to my knowledge) available in the UK. But you can get it shipped from USA. Beast Academy also has some offline free math games that are a great way to spend your Friday afternoons!

Teaching Textbooks

Teaching Textbooks is for grades 3-12 and is an online full curriculum.

We only stumbled across them recently and we have started using them for Algebra 1. Check out our very detailed Teaching Textbooks review here and see why we genuinely love it.

You can try the first 15 lessons for free, you will not be disappointed. This is what we are using for our 7th grade homeschool curriculum.

We started using this online, but have since moved to printing the questions out and working offline. Then add the answers online after we have completed the lesson.

Teaching Textbooks is featured in our best homeschool curriculum for high school.

Mr. D Math

Mr. D Math is for middle and high school grades. They offer live online classes and self paced options. Each lesson has simple principles and offers a hands-on approach, that you don’t get from all curriculums.

High school math from Mr. D Math is featured in our best homeschool curriculum for high school.

Mr D Math pre algebra

What I love about Mr. D Math is they don’t just teach math!

We have taken an economics class with them, and are currently taking a self-paced ASL 1 course and they are both fantastic. For a full and detailed review of Mr. D Math check out our latest blog post.

CTC Math

CTC Math is for children of all ages, they offer a free trial, plus half price for homeschoolers. What we loved about CTCMath is that there are videos before every lesson.

Khan Academy

Khan Academy is probably the best free math homeschool curriculum. We haven’t actually used this as we prefer other options. However, I have from some reliable sources heard that it’s a good free option.


EdPlace is the best UK-based curriculum for maths, English, and science for year 1 right through to GCSE level.

There is a free option, but it is definitely very limited.

This was not intended as a homeschool curriculum, however, we had found that it worked really well for us. If you are looking for home schooling UK resources check out over 80 we used when we were in the UK.


Smartick Method is an absolutely great math curriculum for kids aged 4 -14. It is almost like you are playing video games, but learning at the same time.

I am not sure I would use this as a complete math curriculum, but it would be great as a supplement.
