Below you will see why I think teaching math basics with number bonds is the best way for your homeschoolers to learn math.

The Secret to Teaching Math Facts: Number Bonds

Over our last four years of homeschooling, I have used several different math curricula. Some I liked better the others, but they all had their own strengths and weaknesses. One of the strengths of one particular curriculum we use, Singapore Math, is their method of teaching basic math facts. Instead of teaching fact families by rote, Singapore illustrates fact families using number bonds.

Now, I realize this is just my unprofessional opinion, but as a self-professed math geek, I truly believe number bonds are (likely) the best ways to teach math facts. Why? They're simple. How Number Bonds Work If you're not familiar with what number bonds are, allow me to illustrate. As in the example for addition on the left, the student is taught to recognize that the number 7 is made of 3 and 4.
