Algebra and Geometry
Stinky Kid Math
The Schoolhouse Review Crew has
been blessed to review a few math
products this year. The latest math
resource came to us from a company
called, Stinky Kid Math. We were
pleased to review its math tutoring
program for help with homeschool algebra and geometry. Stinky Kid Math
is an online math product designed to
help your kids master math concepts,
deepening their understanding of pre-algebra, algebra and geometry. Its goal
is to make these concepts accessible
and clear to students.
The program is made up of
streamed online videos students can
watch at their convenience. It also
provides printable worksheets that
allow for practice of the concepts
covered in the lessons as well as on-line games for the strengthening of
those skills. With Stinky Kid Math,
students will learn the “why” of many
math concepts. The core idea of the
program is to teach students how
math works, so that they can better
retain what they learn.
The videos act like tutors, very much
like having Math tutoring done in your
home. The videos are taught by the
same live teacher throughout and are
short and to the point. On top of the
video lessons, practice worksheets, and
games, there is also a colorful, printable
math book containing all of the concepts covered in the program.
Stinky Kid Math is accessible for
computers and tablets, and requires an
internet connection. See the website for
plenty of sample videos.

Heroes of History Series
Christian Heroes: Then & Now
As parents, all of us wish to point to worthy heroes as examples to our children.
Sadly, our culture seldom promotes
those values and character qualities that
one can pronounce as “heroic.” If this
has been a concern in your heart, you
will undoubtedly find the Schoolhouse
Crew’s newest review encouraging.
YWAM Publishing is a company that
desires to provide quality literature that
promotes prayer, discipleship, evangelism and mercy ministries. Its books introduce us to men and women that have
been heroes throughout history. Rather
than list facts and events, YWAM Publishing’s team of authors have enveloped
their readers in the true character and
sacrifice of their subjects. The Crew had
the privilege of reviewing books from
two series of the YWAM catalog.
The Heroes of History Series features political figures such as Abraham Lincoln, George Washington
and Ronald Reagan. Those following
present-day politics might find the biography of Ben Carson to be of interest. Included in this series are men and
women of science and invention, such
as; George Washington Carver and Orville Wright. Lovers of literature will be
delighted to see Laura Ingalls Wilder
included, as well.
The Christian Heroes: Then & Now
Series of books focuses on those men
and women who have devoted their
lives to answer God’s call. Missionar-
ies like Amy Carmichael and Jim Elliot
are featured, as is author C.S. Lewis,
who penned the much loved The Lion,
The Witch and The Wardrobe. As well,
there are the stories of the men and
