Before you begin to choose a homeschool math curriculum you need to know what you want to look for. Here's some questions to help you.
When selecting a math curriculum its important to know the key math topics that are of primary importance in each grade. Be sure to visit SensibleMathEducation for K12 math guidance on what topics your children should focus on, and master, for math success.
The Homeschool Math Curriculum page is organized according to the years covered by each Math Curriculum.
Lastly, I've added our favourite curriculum  what we've enjoyed using as a family, and why.

Elementary Life of Fred books are now available.
You can begin Life of Fred from the early years, but there is no hurry to begin the series. As a parent, you have ten or eleven years to gradually introduce addition, multiplication and long division. By the time your child is in, say, the fifth grade, the addition and multiplication facts will be memorized if it is gradually taught over the years.
What's to be avoided is beating the addition and multiplication tables into the child's head. Then, as the author says, " Life of Fred: Fractions is a reward for learning the tables." You could being Life of Fred at the Fractions book if you like.

Some of you may be wondering what we have used through the years.I have used MathUSee for a long time now and I love the thoroughness of explanations and also the focus on understanding through manipulatives. This program certainly helped me consolidate many maths ideas and concepts and has made me a better teacher.
We love playing a simple yet effective game with the MathUSee blocks at home using dice. We call it the "100 game" and each child rolls the dice and picks up the correct block according to the number of the die, adding on more with each roll. As they go on, they need to swap the 8 and 3 for one ten and one unit and so on. The game continues until one child reaches 100 and has covered their whole 100 block.
We have also enjoyed many of the Math Games which I listed on the side bar as my favourite math games. Basically, they are fun games to play and along the way you learn important math concepts.
For the upper grades we have used Harold Jacobs Textbooks which are written in a very interesting style.
We are currently using Teaching Textbooks for Algebra and Geometry. I have found these to be especially useful to our family, because I feel as though the older children have their own private teacher (on CD  explaining every example if needed) while I have spent more time with the younger ones.
We have also just begun to use the Life of Fred series, which I wholeheartedly recommend. They are a lot of fun, very interesting and certainly comprehensive!
And lastly, some of my children have really benefitted from the Harold Jacob's books. They really describe the new math concept logically and in detail and then the practice exercises reinforce both old work and the new material in the lesson. I find this a very thorough approach and love working through this book with my children.
As always, your family is unique and the needs of your children are unique, so investigate Homeschool Math choices by making decisions according to the questions at the top of the page keeping your unique family in mind.
