Homeschool Buyers Co-op BBB Business Review

Please read this FAQ page carefully before contacting the Co-op.

Is this considered to be core curriculum or supplemental?

This answer from Houghton Mifflin: "This is a supplemental program that contains coverage to supplement, extend, and enhance any core program. Our goal is to fill gaps and expose student to new ways of learning through our engaging direct and explicit instruction. We are not meant to supplant, but rather supplement."

Can multiple students share the same account?

No. Under our license agreement, you must purchase a different subscription for each student who uses Destination Math.

Does the parent/teacher have any way to monitor student progress or give tests?

No. The subscriptions of Destination Reading available through the Co-op gives members access to the content, but not to the teacher administrative module, which is needed in order to make assignments or give texts. The administrative module would make the program much more expensive and complex.

If my child finishes the Destination Math module before the year runs out, do they move onto the next module or do we have to buy a new one?

You would have the option of purchasing the next Destination Math product in the series. Keep in mind that each of the Destination Math courses covers two or more grade levels. It is intended to supplement a core math curriculum such as Saxon Math.

Can you redo certain parts of Destination Math or does it proceed in a specific order?

Yes, you take each of the Destination Math course segments as many times as you want.

My Destination Math subscription is not working. When I try to access it from the RiverDeep website, nothing happens!

That's because your Pop Up Blocker is turned on. Please make sure your Pop Up Blocker is turned OFF in your web browser.

I need technical support. Can you help?

Following are the most common problems, with solutions for each:

Situation: You have multiple Destination Math and Reading courses.
Problem: You click a course link in your "My Subscription" page, but it takes you to the wrong course.
Solution: You must logout of one course on the Riverdeep website before you can login to another course. On the Riverdeep website, look for and click the "Logout" link in the upper right area of the screen, immediately below the dark blue bar.

Problem: You get kicked back to the same page after logging in.
Solution: The cause of this problem is most likely a pop-up blocker. Get help here.

Most other problems that you experience can be solved by ensuring you have the latest versions of Flash and Shockwave from Macromedia. The latest versions are available FREE via download here:

Get the latest Flash Player.
Get the latest Shockware Player.

Are the 1-month "demo/trial" subscriptions subsets of the subscriptions that can be purchased through the Co-op?

No. The "demo/trial" subscriptions are identical to the ones you can purchase through the Co-op, limited only by time (to one month).

Are the Destination Math subscriptions available through the Co-op a special "homeschool" version, or in some way "inferior" to the subscriptions available to schools?

No. The Co-op is not offering a lesser version. The content is exactly the same as in a school subscription. However, schools usually purchase the administrative module, which gives teachers the ability to create lesson plans, assign tests, and track student progress. That system is more complex and expensive, and is currently not available to Co-op members.
