Yes – 60 days! We recognize that purchasing a math curriculum is a difficult but very important decision, and we are committed to customer satisfaction. Therefore, we offer a 60-day trial period on all our printed products to give you time to examine and try out Math on the Level to see if it is right for your family.
Math on the Level comes with a 60 day examination period which starts the day you receive the curriculum. During this trial period, treat the curriculum like it belongs to someone else. If you decide to return your purchase, the books should be free of markings, notes, spills, tears, folded pages, scratches, bent edges, and odors. During the trial period, you can copy the Concept Chart and other record keeping forms so you don't have to make marks on the original ones.
We get few returns. Please contact us first before returning any item to get instructions and a return address.
How to Package the Books
We recommend using the original white box and packing materials and a new USPS Priority Mail Flat Rate box. If you no longer have the original shipping materials, please wrap the books in sufficient large-bubble wrap to prevent them from being damaged from being jostled inside the box.
Books which smell of cigarette smoke odors are non-returnable.
Math on the Level is designed as one integrated, complete curriculum. We once offered a portion of the curriculum as the Math on the Level Starter Set and the remaining books as the Starter Set Upgrade. The Starter Set was discontinued in 2011, but for those who need it, we still offer the Starter Set Upgrade, which is located in our Replacement Products area.
Since Math on the Level is designed to work as a complete set, we no longer offer its volumes for individual sale. If you are a registered user of Math on the Level, either by being an original purchaser or else by buying the support package, you can log in and purchase replacement volumes directly (see the link to replacement volumes on your User Menu).
We intend for the original user of Math on the Level to be able to the curriculum to teach allof their children. The consumable portion of the curriculum is in the Overview and Record Keeping binder, which has the record-keeping forms. If you are a registered curriculum user and run out of these forms, just log in to our website and your User Menu will have links to printable copies along with links to the latest version of the Math on the Level autoscheduling spreadsheet. These items are available only after the 60-day trial period ends (or sooner if you know you are going to keep the curriculum and want to end the trial period early).
Note: if you purchased a used copy of Math on the Level, please click here for more information on how to become registered for full support and obtain the printable record keeping forms and spreadsheet.
If you purchased Math on the Level at a convention, first create a login (if you don't already have one), and then contact us with your login username and the information which will help us link you with your purchase. Once we have matched up your username with our purchase records, we will turn on access to these support items for you.
We have attended (and spoken at) many homeschool conventions and book fairs, and we post upcoming information on our website calendar. Since we also are a homeschooling family, there are years when we must scale back on travel and the very high cost of attending conventions. Check back to see when we will be in an area near you!
If you cannot view our website, or if the edges are black and non-viewable, it may be that your web browser resolution is set too low. The simplest way to fix it is to hold down the Ctrl key and then press the 0 (zero) key; this will return the browser to its default resolution. Alternatively, hold down the Ctrl key and then press the - (minus) key a couple of times. This will progressively make things look progressively smaller; to make things larger, hold down the Ctrl key and press the + key a couple of times. If that doesn't fix it, or if you get errors when you click a link or tab (404 error), then please contact us.
