Computer-based math teaching for advanced K'er?

Recommended Posts

A friend of mine has a 4 year old in kindergarten and seems to be advanced in math (she has her in a supplemental Russian Math School and the child will be in the honors program next year).  The school she is in seeks to find a computer program to teach her math since the young girl knows more than the average kindy kid.  The preference is that the computer program does self-teaching, self-grades, is not an online program, and not overtly Christian.


Any suggestions?

CTC, Khan Academy or she might even be able to handle Teaching Textbooks with some assistance at first, depending on how far along she is.  A strictly computer based program without any interaction or feedback from a teacher probably won't really suffice long-term though.  Is that really what they are planning or was I misreading that?  Can't a higher grade teacher sort of supervise?

Oh not online, then Teaching Textbooks or APlus math.

My 6 y.o. could handle 4th grade TT with some help from me (reading involved).

Note: I have not stuck with it because he's little, he just enjoyed using his older sister's math program. But the content itself was fine.
