Standard Deviants Accelerate {TOS Review}

Standard Deviants Accelerate Review
Hello!  I have another TOS Homeschool Review for you.  We've had such a great year reviewing some great homeschool products, and this is no exception.  We enjoyed reviewing Standard Deviants Homeschool Courses for  Standard Deviants Accelerate.  This is ideal for ages 8 through adult.
Standard Deviants Homeschool Courses have many courses to chose from.  Here are just a few:
  • Earth Science (grades 6+)
  • Nutrition (grades 6+)
  • Biology (grades 7+)
  • Chemistry (grades 9+
  • Arithmetic (grades 3+)
  • Fundamental Math (grades 4+)
  • US History (grades 9+)
Standard Deviants Accelerate Review
This course is entirely online.  Each child will need their own email.  For those of you who have children without emails, you can quickly set up one through gmail for free. 

My daughter didn't have any issues using the website.  It fairly easy to manoeuvre around.  We mainly did the Fundamental Mathematics course, but we did check out some of the others.
When my daughter would log in all she needed to do was click that box, it would then take her to the list of lessons.  The lessons are divided into chapters. 
The lessons have short videos to watch, and you can print out the transcript if you wish.  The videos were under 10 minutes each, a few were a bit longer.  Autumn did this course a few days each week and would watch at least two videos each time.

The quizzes are automatically graded for you, and they keep a record of all the scores.  Another great bonus for homeschool moms!
The lessons/videos were engaging.  This was a very good refresher on math for her, and she learned some new things.  There were activities to do, which required several children.  Some of those we skipped if we couldn't do it with just one. 
With each lesson, there were several tabs to click on.  The first one was the video lesson, the next was vocab, then diagram, a quiz with multiple choices, and a written answer quiz.

Here is a good video to show how Standard Deviants Accelerate works for homeschoolers:

For homeschoolers the cost is $99/year or $24.95/month.  There is a six month free trial.  Check out the box below.
